Weight loss programs! OH my GOODNESS – I could easily write a book on the best
weight loss programs. But you know what’s so good about most of them? Most all of them will work if we’ll just DO them! There is no secret in any one of them! All the information we would need for any one of these weight loss programs is every which way we turn.
WE JUST NEED TO PICK ONE OF THEM AND DO IT!!! YES!!! IT’s that EASY! Now will power and controlling our appetites? That’s another story – but we can handle that TOO – if we’ll just psyche ourselves out – GET ready with the supplies we need so we have a healthy snack or meal when we need it and JUST DO IT!!!
HOWEVER – to save us all time – I’m compiling all the information we would need to lose weight and keep it off and get healthier and more energetic – right here under this Weight Loss Programs landing page. SO YAHHH FOR US!!!!!!!
We must burn about 3,500 calories to lose one pound.
IF we do that through diet AND exercise – just think of the momentum we will put behind our weight loss program – no matter which one we choose.
It’s simple to make, delicious and so healthy it can even be considered a kind of detox soup if we eat it for our snacks and one meal a day. But watch the sodium with any ingredients. SOME cabbage soup recipes call for things like onion soup mix and other things that will just add too much sodium to our diet and slow us down instead of speed us up.
I prefer our OWN Cabbage Soup Recipe and I’ve included it here.
Weight Loss Programs: Tricks of the Trade
There are many tricks of the weight loss program trade.
But you don’t need supplements to speed up your metabolism.
IN FACT – some of those supplements are more harmful to you than helpful and I don’t care what the commercials and ads say – do your own research.
Type each one in and then type + health hazard. YOU’LL see …
There are foods that are thermogenic and that means they will speed up our metabolism in a safe and healthy way and they will help us burn calories faster.
THAT’S the healthy way to diet.
Those thermogenic foods include but are not limited to lean protein, green tea, hot peppers and some spices, coconut oil and more.
We’ll be talking about all of this too …
At age 69 and 121 pounds, I’m a weight loss expert from my own experience. I stayed fat (137 lbs) until we were in an accident about 3 years ago and I had to have major surgery for a leg broken in 3 places and was flat on my back for 13 weeks and sick as a dog and couldn’t keep anything down. And I say I was fat BECAUSE 137 pounds on a 5 foot woman is just too much weight. I always said my face was a cross between a bull dog and Dale Evans.
SO – flat on my back with my bulldog jaws – I was literally eating 2 sips of soup broth for breakfast, lunch and supper. YES I KNOW YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT KIND OF SOUP!!! It was Progresso Gumbo Soup. 🙂 I’d sometimes be able to eat 2-3 bites of vanilla Dairy Queen ice cream that my husband kept in the freezer to get a little more food in me. And ZOOM – down 24 pounds in 13 weeks. SO that told me right there – it wasn’t the exercise and it wasn’t any special diet or supplement – it was QUANTITY. I was able from that point on – to keep my weight down. Today (May 24, 2016) I weigh 126 pounds and that’s because I’ve been on an ice cream binge. But I’m on my way back down as I type.
I’ve gained and lost hundreds of pounds over these 5 decades of marriage – but I think I finally have things under control NOW.
Weight Loss Programs: I Exercised With The BEST Weight Loss Gurus
I started with Jack LaLanne in the early 1970s and went on to exercise with Richard Simmons and others after him. Oh YES – I’ve worked with some of the very best weight loss gurus in this country. I REALLY HAVE!!! You can come to me with any of your weight problems and by doggies I’ll have an answer for you before you can get the question spit out.
Weight Loss Programs: I Started Out TINY
I was a very tiny girl as a little girl and teenager.
When mom took me to get my wedding dress at age 19 – I weighed 83 pounds and was only 5 feet tall – the height I stopped at unfortunately. But the lady waiting on us called to the other ladies in the store to come and see my 19″ waist.
NOW days – these little skinny girls running around town would make my 19″ waist look like a waist stuffed with too much blubber.
And so – being a naive little girl and not very worldly at all – with my first pregnancy at the end of our first year of marriage – I gained 57 pounds. NOBODY told me to watch my weight – not even my doctor.
By the time we headed for the hospital the day of delivery – I couldn’t even tie my own shoes.
After our first son was born – I was shocked that I only lost 9 pounds. SO I asked the doctor – “The baby weighed 8 pounds and 9 ounces – why do I still weigh 137 pounds?”
He said “Because the rest was fat, sister!” I said “WHAT???” I was such a naive little girl – Praise GOD I turned into a researcher – and boy have I learned a lot.
If there’s ONE SECRET to being able to stick to a diet – it’s keeping that blood sugar at a good level so we don’t crave bad foods – and we can do that with Vitamin B Complex and in Round Knob Canyon – we take the Soloray Vitamin B Mega Stress capsules and I get them on amazon. Most all of us lack enough of the B vitamins in our system BECAUSE of our poor diets. And just taking a B Complex once or twice a day – can make a world of difference. B Complex is good for hair, skin and nails – YES! But it’s SO good for our entire nervous system. It can calm down anxiety, depression, give us more energy naturally and just so many good things. We should ALL be taking a B Complex capsule.
Well – let’s get on with it! We’re studying all the major diets and no matter what you’re looking for – you can get and trust the scoop you find right here!
If you have a problem – just yell – maybe we can advise you – because trust me – we’ve been there.
