Losing weight. I don’t know any subject more discussed than diet and weight loss. How are you losing weight? How can I lose weight? What do you eat? And on and on and on.
We all know that diet is a big contributor to weight loss. I personally don’t like to step on the scale very often but prefer to go by how my clothes fit. On the other end of the spectrum, I know people that step on the scale first thing every morning. To each their own but to me that seems almost compulsive. If your weight fluctuates half a pound, your day may be ruined.
I am a very healthy eater but my most challenging time of day is in the evenings when I’m sitting down for the night and either reading or watching TV. Others I know have a perpetual sweet tooth that needs fed after every meal. Then others have a salt craving that they find hard to control.
Sometimes, it’s as simple as telling yourself “I’ll wait ten minutes before I have…..” Other times, it’s not as simple and you really want the ice cream, chocolate bar, cake, chips or whatever it is. You are not alone and there are many in the same boat you are.
For me, I focus on eating one word foods. What exactly does this mean? It means I try to eat as many foods in their original state such as an apple, egg, potato, turkey versus foods with multiple ingredients such as pizza, prepackaged frozen meals such as Lean Cuisine or Weight Watchers, and fast food meals such as a Whopper, Fries and Large Coke. Right there? You have consumed more than 1200 calories at one meal! That is insane when you can eat a healthy dinner at home with a little planning.
Another product I am passionate about is Shakeology and the Beach Body Program. I am not one to promote any food, product, drink, exercise or even a vacation spot if I don’t believe in it 100% . Shakeology has provided me with the added support I needed to stop snacking in the evenings and eat healthy. For more information on Shakeology – please visit my site here – BeachBody Coach Denise Sanger This product actually STOPPED my sweet and salty cravings after dinner. I have always had a battle to control these cravings and what a wonderful feeling it is to not even think about getting ice cream or chips.
Sometimes it’s not easy to get started but just taking that first step and moving forward can make a world of difference to your health. I’m there with you on the same journey. Questions? Email me! Let’s get healthy together.
