Lifestyle (weight loss) Ways of Change

Lifestyle change is finding the way of eating that best suits you… Your looks, health and life depends on it!
~
PCOS Lady
Abit on me, i dropped 6 full dress sizes and 60lbs in 8 months in the early 90’s… High protein, complex & low carbs is the way i did it… I combined a body builder’s diet, Atkin’s, Weight Watcher’s and my own ways in it… No added exercise accept my normal work days… My fat was solid, no cellulite…
~ Many body builders complimented me on my diet… Telling me no bananas 1st thing was my only mistake!
~ I gained many pounds back over time… I knew then i needed help for an internal problem…
~ 2003 i was diagnosed with PCOS, a hormone imbalance issue…
~ Given Glucophage XR 500mg daily…
~ 2003 i lost 6 full dress sizes and 30lbs in 4 months…
~ Budget forced me off the Gluc, i put some weight back on with cellulite…
~ ~ ~
I will add things i have learned and read to do here…
~
Dr Oz
5 Things to AVOID in Your Diet, i watched the documentary too… It takes like 4+ months to shed a good portion of weight, get off your meds for Diabetes and heart issues, etc…
~
Those of you with the Pillsbury Dough Boy tummy, this way is for you!
~ My 2nd husband did the Opti-Fast Diet, his tummy stayed!

5 Things to AVOID in Your Diet…
October 11, 2006
Oprah Show
By Dr Oz & Dr Roizen
~
Complaint: Overweight, rundown and exhausted…
Problem: Her *diet and little exercise…
~
Fact: Look outside their life to pinpoint the problems…
Fact: 2 weeks of eating right WILL shift your life curve…
BUT, eating right then eating bad for 2 weeks will change that life curve, too…
Fact: The biggest changes are outside of you!
~
5 Things to AVOID in Your Diet
~
1 ~ sugar…
2 ~ high fructose corn syrup – ages arteries and hurts your immune
system…
3 ~ hydrogenated oil & partially hydrogenated – leads to heart disease…
4 ~ enriched (flour, etc…) – They took it out and put the bad back in…
5 ~ salt…
~
* Olive Oil improves arteries!
– Sugar & water drinks are BAD!
* Eat foods from the earth and nature!
* Air popped popcorn is good for you…

~
Diet Tips & Tricks
~
Diet for 2 days then add a few extra carbs every 3rd day! The body never gets used to it…
– Per research studies of late…
~
Water rehydrates you! I suggest keeping it with you all the time…
http://www.naturodoc.com/library/nutrition/water.htm
~ Naturo Doc on water…
~
Workouts:
Eat something like yogurt or drink a protein shake before you do… Otherwise you will lose muscle along with fat per Dr Oz… 5/8/2012 show…
~ www.Mercola.com
~ Sugar or HFCS eaten after a workout will completely shut down your body’s production of your Human Growth Hormone…
~ Dr Oz said do not grab an energy drink after a work out either for the same reason…
~
Isometrics:
A certified personal trainer told me to hold it 6 seconds each rep… 6 is the magic number!
~
Drinks – Clear soda is far better than colored ones… Colored ones have chemicals in it to hurt you… Mountain Dew is the worst! It has Bromade(sp) (Bromine) a poison in it shadowed by heavy amounts of sugar…
– Beer – Budweiser is the only beer loaded with chemicals which answers why most people get headaches drinking it!
(a beer distributor manager told me)
– * A headache is the 1st thing a person will usually experience when the body is rejecting what you are eating, drinking or taking….
~
Waist:
Healthy: Your waist should be half your height…
– To measure, suck your tummy in for a proper measurement per Dr Oz!
– Women, waist should be no more than 35″…
– Men, waist no more than 40″…
~
Do not ever eat a banana 1st thing! Tummy can’t digest it…
~
Biggest Loser says eat small meals, meat, veggies & sides the size of your palm…
~
Start with this list… I say modify…
~
You can always discard the bun and bread to use lettuce…
~
Remember to eat something every 2-3 hours…
Plus do not eat anything 3 hours before bedtime…
~
Always eat carbs with a protein! You never absorb the calories…
~
Drink a 12 oz of soda a day if you like…
Stay away from diet stuff – BAD for you!
Use butter never margarine, etc…
– Margarine clogs arteries!
~
Chew sugarless gum or keep hard candy or nuts or trail mix with you…
– 1/4 cup of almonds or walnuts daily are great!
– Pistachios are good too…
~
Know it takes 2 weeks to wean your body off carbs and cravings…
– Proteins keep your tummy satisfied…
~
Keep a high protein level daily of 30% to keep muscle mass….
~
“Key” Test
Get a blood test done called Serum Insulin Level test!
A blood test, level should be under 11 to lose weight… If 12 and higher you need a strict diet, hard exercise or you may have a hormone imbalance or something else….
~
PCOS Lady, I do say modify it for you…
~
Sensa
Sensa is scientifically proven to be safe. In fact everyone can use it. Its ingredients are composed of Maltodextrin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Silica, Natural and Artificial Flavors, FD&C Yellow 5, Carmine, Soy and Milk ingredients which are all considered non toxic and harmless to the body. Unlike other slimming product, none of the above mentioned ingredients can cause any gastrointestinal disruptions such as increase bowel movements, stomach cramps, or nausea and vomiting for it purely targets and works on your perception level specifically your taste and smell sensory.

~
Margarine vs Butter
~
In a head-to-head battle between butter and its artificial competitor, the original wins by a landslide. Sure, the spreads have the same number of calories, but Margarine has more trans fat, which simultaneously raises your “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lowers “good” (HDL) cholesterol, according to the Mayo Clinic. “That’s the one ingredient we dietitians recommend to avoid completely,” Moskovitz says. To limit your risk of heart disease, stick with the real stuff. And choose whipped butter, which has a lower caloric density.

Diets, Experiences, Sites, Plus…

I KNOW I CAN HAVE THIS CARROT!


PCOS Lady:
Everyone,
~
I have tried a few diet methods (Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and my own combination) … I researched diets and methods… I love forums for 1st hand experiences, tricks, secrets, etc…
~
I am a firm believer to look into all weight loss, diet, lifestyle change options, have “key” tests done before starting a plan or having weight loss surgery done…
~ I prefer eating natural and good foods to lose… Back to basics mainly…
(a high protein, complex & low carb diet, is my lifestyle)
~ Glucophage XR 500mg/daily gets rid of my tummy and abdomen pounds….
(my body can’t tolerate sugar & flour, i wear it all!)
~ Will power, determination, variety in food, in moderation, portion control, etc…
are all needed to lose weight and maintain your desired weight and size…
~ Yes, i feel you must cheat 1 meal a week to make to the next week…
~
PCOS Lady:
This test was found real deep in heart information…
~
Get a blood test done called Serum Insulin Level test?
~ A blood test, level should be under 11 to lose weight…
~ If 12 and higher you need a strict diet, hard exercise or you may have a hormone imbalance or something else….
~
Doctors rarely ever test this! You are told to beat yourself up eating less and exercising more! If you knew your number the steps would be crystal clear on steps before thinking of drastic weight loss surgeries…
~
Look at my newest post for the Hormone Balance Test…. You could have PCOS or a thyroid disorder….
~
The KEY i read was nothing really is working and you gain abit, etc… I was there too!
~
Just read the intense forum at http://www.3fatchicks.com… You may find something there as well…
~
Best wishes in losing your weight!

A Woman Who Wants to Lose Weight
~
The recommended carb range:
2-3.5 carb choices per meal
(30-55 g carbs per meal)
~
If you feel like you need a snack between meals, choose one that has less than 7-10 grams of carbohydrate per serving.
~
Carb Tip: Go for the carbs from fruits and veggies first. “For people who are wanting to lose weight, it’s important to look at the balance between all of their nutrients. All carbs are not created equally, but carbs from whole foods such as fruit are much better choices than those from highly processed foods,” says Donna Kernodle, R.D., M.P.H., CDE with the Diabetes Care Center at Wake Forest University’s Baptist Medical Center.

A Man Who Wants to Lose Weight
~
The recommended carb range:
3-4 carb choices per meal
(50-65 g carbs per meal)
~
If you feel like you need a snack between meals, choose one that has less than 7-10 grams of carbohydrate per serving.
~
Carb Tip: Drink calorie- and carb-free fluids when you’re feeling hungry. “A lot of people mistake hunger for thirst,” Kernodle says. Most people aren’t keeping themselves adequately hydrated, causing a sense of hunger when they’re actually thirsty.
~
What It Takes to Lose Weight
Losing weight is all about numbers: You need to burn 3,500 calories to lose 1 pound.

~
Easy Calorie Conversions
~
We’re often encouraged to be carb conscious, which can be helpful for blood sugar control but not necessarily good for your weight. Calories still count. Some foods can be low in carbohydrate and high in calories. For example, an 8-ounce steak and a 16-ounce steak both have 0 grams of carbohydrate. But you still need to count the calories that come from protein and fat; you may be consuming more calories than you realize.
~
Here are some easy calorie conversions:
1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories
1 gram of protein = 4 calories
1 gram of fat = 9 calories
~
Adopt one (or more) of the following tips to sensibly trim calories every day.
~
ckswenson1 says:
Do not use fat-free dressings. A small study published in the August 2004 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that our bodies don’t absorb such important protective antioxidants as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene or lycopene from vegetables unless we eat them accompanied by some fat. I am surprised that a dietician would not know that..
~
Tests
~
1) * Serum Insulin Level blood test… A “KEY” test to know if you can actually lose weight with out added interventions… Result of #11 and lower means you can lose… Result of #12 or higher means you are guaranteed not to lose! You will need help from harder exercise & stricter dieting to lower the number 1st or medical help…
~ Doctors rarely ever do this test, they say diet & exercise or jump right to Gastric Bypass Surgery!
2) Have … hormones… lipids panel… CMP/basic metabolic panel… insulin… checked before choosing a diet or option method …
( you may have a hormone imbalance which can throw your body off!
~
YOU know your body! You know what type eating habits work for you… Or try a few before thinking of drastic measures…
~ Gastric Bypass Surgery is trauma to your body… Most people put weight back on!
~ Lap Band surgery… I feel is far better for you than Gastric Bypass surgery…
~
Diet Types:
Cleanse, Gluten Free, Health Food, High Carb, High Protein, Low Calorie, Low Carb, Low Fat, Low Protein, Low Sodium, Specific Food, Vegan, Vegetarian
~
I strongly suggest looking into Dr Simeons’ method before drastic surgery as an option…
We have heard of and read about Kevin Trudeau, he reports the truths… I have three of his books… Simeons “weight loss cure protocol” is mentioned in it…
~

Simeons “weight loss cure protocol”

~
In Kevin Trudeau’s The Weight Loss Cure, research confirms eating a very low calorie diet increases overall health, plus anti-aging effects and increases lifespan… Most importantly, is to combine the HCG injections which flood your body with over 2,000 calories of nutrition from releasing abnormal fat reserves… Both equal higher energy and not feeling hungry!
~
http://www.drsimeonspoundsandinches.com/simeons-weight-loss-cure/
~
However, clinical researches and real experiments show that both men and women can consume this hormone orally or inject in their body for a dramatic drop in weight.
~
HCG Diet Plan centers around a very low calorie diet, say 500 calorie a day. It burns the abnormal fat bank and release calories that increase metabolism and other physiological functions.
~
Overweight people who want to lose extra pounds from their body can start taking HCG oral drops, pills or intra-muscular injections. Everyday consumption of this glycoprotein substance can drop 1-3 lbs. So, shedding as much as 40 lbs in less than a month is possible.
