This is for all of you that are interested in a weight loss program. I’ve tried them all, and I’d like to tell you about this one because it actually does work. I’ve been able to keep the weight off for over three years. It’s quick too.
You can have the body of your dreams in 12 weeks. Even if you’re extremely busy and think there’s no way that you can do it because of lack of time, etc. There’s not a lot of time consuming meal preparation or calorie counting. No matter who you are or what you do you absolutely have the power to change.
Imagine just 12 weeks from now having the energy to go all out from dawn to dusk. Having the confidence to do all of the things you’ve been putting off. Knowing you can regain control of anything in the world you set your mind to. Age, Sex, and whether you’re fit or unfit doesn’t matter, or if you need to gain or lose weight. I know because I changed my life in 12 weeks. I eliminated fatigue, back problems, and heartburn and have more energy than ever before.
This program is doctor recommended, not a fad diet. It is eating six healthy meals a day and speeding up the body’s metabolism. You will need to set goals as in anything you do. Your goals need to Written down. The program combines proper eating and exercise. But diet is 95% of the picture. You should start by writing down what your most important specific accomplishments you would like to make within the 12 weeks are. Do not skimp here! For example – don’t write down that you would like to lose 10 pounds when you might really need to lose 50 pounds. Write down 50 pounds…..etc. i.e. write down what you want your new waist size to be…
o Write down your goals.
o Take a before picture. This is VERY IMPORTANT.
o Increase your water consumption. For example a 200 lb male, should drink 1 ½ to 2 gallons per day. If you get in the habit of drinking 2 (8 oz.) glasses upon waking in the a.m., this will be a good start.
o 20 minutes of cardio exercise after drinking 2 (8oz.) glasses of water would be very good.
Since diet is 95% of the program, we will start with a sample diet. Instead of counting calories, we will use portions. A portion being the size of your closed fist. (Hopefully you have big hands ! lol ) The following is a balanced diet with proteins, carbs, and veggies:
Chicken breast, Turkey breast, Lean Ground Turkey, Lean Ground Beef, Fish, Lobster, Shrimp, Tuna, Top Sirloin Steak, Lean Ham, Egg Whites or substitutes, Low Fat Cottage Cheese (this is the best form of Whey Protein).
Sweet Potatoes, Yam, Red or New Potatoe, Steamed Brown Rice, Pasta, Oatmeal, Beans, Apple, Orange, Fat Free Yogurt, Whole Wheat Bread.
Broccoli, Asparagus, Lettuce, Green Beans, Green Peppers, Mushrooms, Spinach, Tomato, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Celery, Cucumber, Onion, Squash.
Choose a portion of Protein and Carbs from each list to make a meal. Add a serving of Veggies to 3 of your 6 meals. (Remember, a portion is the size of your closed fist)
Despite popular belief there are healthy fats. Saturated fats are the enemy. Unsaturated fats in small amounts can actually be good for you. For example, one of reasons fish is such a healthy food is because it contains EFA’s. Essential Fatty Acids – which can actually help your body burn fat more efficiently and protect you from certain diseases. Butter, margarine or shortening are bad news. They are stored as body fat and cause an increase in cholesterol. Good fats include safflower oil, sesame oil, canola oil, flaxseed oil. A tablespoon of one of these per day provide your body with the essential fatty acids it needs. Example, mix a tablespoon of safflower oil with vinegar and us it as a salad dressing. Shakes and food bars can make up 2 or 3 of your meals per day.
That’s it for now. More info to follow………feel free to email catch me in the chat room or call me in the meantime, if you have any questions, etc. Good luck – and remember to start by writing down your goals and taking your before picture!
