TIPS

~ Eat a strict diet for 2 days, add carbs every 3rd day… Research just proved the body never adjusts to this…
~ Always keep water with you to hydrate…
~ Eat only butter! Margarine just clogs your arteries with plaque…
~ Stay low keyed on aspartame products! It creates havoc in “YOU” over time!
~ Read labels… Stay away from “low fat” “diet” etc… stuff! They have hidden nasty ingredients in them!

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…

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…
~

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.
