Some people are paying upwards of $50 just to learn about this latest “secret” to losing weight. I’m about to share that secret right here with you. Are you interested?
First thing I would like to cover: There is a widely accepted myth of 21 days to break a habit, but that myth has been busted several times already… yet, some writers still like to refer to it though gospel.
One study did prove that on an average it takes more than two whole months to have a new behaviour become automatic.
So, don’t be too frustrated when you find yourself breaking a habit you wish to create as being an automatic behaviour, especially when focusing on losing weight. No more kicking yourself… just get back at it again.
If you really want to do yourself a favour, set weight loss goals for; below is a screen print of a guide that was suggested in yet another study done on weight loss.
If you are really serious about losing weight the simple secret to losing weight is to start by reducing your consumption of processed, white sugar.
For those of us addicted to sugar, I get it!
It is not an easy thing to do.
However, do you know what sugar does to the cells of your body… and how sugar is causing disease? If not, here’s a post you need to read: Is this 1 food TOXIC to your body?
Here is what I started with.
My breakfast cereal used to consist of 2 sugar spoons full of white sugar sprinkled over spoon-sized shredded wheat. Thankfully, my friends kept after me about reducing my intake of sugar, so I started by replacing those spoons full of sugar with frozen raspberries and/or blueberries on my breakfast cereal. And, it worked… in the beginning.
It wasn’t very long after doing this that I discovered that the breakfast cereal I was eating was contaminated with Roundup… yup!
This came to be discovered due to what I initially thought was another flare up of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), and ended up proving to have been caused by my diet… seriously.
That was back in 2014, and now I eat mostly proteins and health carbs. My snacks consist of raw nuts whenever possible, raisins, and dried cranberries… a mixture of which I create and will call my custom trail mixture.
My coffee and tea, I have been sweetening with honey purchased from a local beekeeper. I have been doing this for several years now due to the fact that I love my coffee and tea, and was suffering from severe tooth decay, back then.
Overtime, Pepsi successfully killed my taste for soda pop. Though, I will have a soda pop every once in a blue moon but no more 3 cans of Pepsi a day for me.
Several years ago, I had stocked up on several cases of Diet Pepsi. When it started tasting like tin, I contacted Pepsi, only to discover that EVERY case I had purchased on special was out of dated (some, by well over a YEAR).
Mind you, this happened long before they started printing expiration dates on their cans and cases. I wasn’t long in offering that as a suggestion at that time, but, never mind… I now no longer buy soda pop AT ALL.
So, “Thank YOU Pepsi. You broke that addiction for me… yeah!”
Finding new ways to eat has become like an adventure for me over several years. I now find myself eating thing like gluten-free, sugar-free pancakes made from one banana and one egg, smothered in REAL Canadian maple syrup is now one of my favourites… and snacking on fresh veggies instead of potato chips.
Reducing my use of white sugar has been an ongoing goal for me. Now, I mostly use my white sugar for my hummingbird and Baltimore oriole feeders… TRUE.
So, if you are anything like me… and you love your sweets, hang in there… you CAN learn to reduce your consumption of white sugar easier than you think you can… one step at a time.
Portion control is another secret to losing weight.
These simple secrets to lose weight are the easiest to implement, and are among the secrets others are paying upwards of $50 to learn about.
Another easy way to lose weight is to not eat out in fast-food chains, restaurants, and/or take-out meals for one whole year. Start making your meals at home.
Yes, even when you are working you can find easy to prepare, homemade meals.
There are several easy to follow recipes that you can prepare… or those you can make on weekends (if you prefer), freeze and bring out as needed.
All you need to do is to make up your mind that you are important enough and that you are worth the extra care that making homemade meals may entail. It won’t be long until you start feeling soooo much better that you will wonder why you did not try this sooner.
Snacks like fresh veggies served with health dips for watching TV, instead of potato chips can be a great way to add the much needed daily amount of fiber in your diet.
Another important ingredient to losing weight: Make sure you are getting enough vitamins, minerals, and nutrients daily. If necessary, make sure you (read the labels) buy quality supplements, and take them regularly.
The Latest BIG secret to Losing Weight
Here’s the latest BIG secret to losing weight, revealed. (drumroll, please!)
It’s called Daily Energy (using my affiliate link). Apparently, each serving is packed with the antioxidant equivalent of 12 servings of fruits and vegetables. It takes all of a few seconds to mix a scoop of Daily Energy (using my affiliate link) with water, and it is said to taste good. And, be sure you purchase your Daily Energy (using my affiliate link) from a trustworthy vendor.
For those of you who want a long-term resolve for losing weight, I repeat… you need to increase your consumption of proteins. Here’s why…
Protein is made up of amino acids, and there are 20 amino acids that make up all human proteins. Of these twenty amino acids, the human body can only produce 12 of these by itself, which means the other 8 amino acids MUST be consumed through the foods you eat.
Eating more proteins can help to make you feel fuller longer and reduces those hunger pangs, as it takes the human digestive system extra energy to break down and process proteins. Effectively, this results in fewer meals (or at least smaller portions) eaten daily. Essentially, you should be consuming fewer calories.
The protein that you eat is never stored by your body. So, if you consume a lot of protein, you will find your body eliminating what it cannot use, as waste. In contrast, excessive consumption of carbs and fats ARE stored by your body cells, instead of being eliminated as waste.
Proteins from animal sources (i.e. eggs, milk, meat, fish and poultry) provide the highest quality rating of food sources.
Whey protein is considered to be a complete protein with all of the amino acids needed to sustain life. It is being stated that the brand of whey protein that you choose should have a very low amount of carbohydrate (no more than 3 grams per scoop) as well as the amount of fat (no more than 3 grams per scoop), and NO sugar added.
The whey protein I have found that not only tastes great but also complies with those standards is being sold at my local Costco store under the brand name of Leanfit Naturals. Their chocolate whey protein has 2.5g. of fat and 2 g. of carbohydrates, while the vanilla whey protein has 2g. of fat and 45mg. of carbohydrates, and neither are sweetened with sugar.
Both the chocolate and vanilla protein powders have whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. What are these?
Whey Protein Concentrate: is the processing that removes the water, lactose, ash and some minerals, and typically contains more biologically active components and proteins, making this a very attractive supplement for athletes.1
Whey Protein Isolate: is the purest protein source available, which contains a protein concentration of 90% or higher. During the processing, there is a large amount of fat and lactose removed. Those with intolerance to lactose can often consume these proteins.2
If you are wondering how to use the chocolate whey protein, I suggest you use one scoop in one cup of 1% organic milk (cheapest at Costco) and mix this in a one cup (MagicBullet®) blender, pour into a large mug and heat in a microwave oven… VOILA! You have your cup of hot coco.
Did you know that depending on your personal situation you could easily drop 10 to 20 pounds in a few weeks simply by doing nothing more than making a few healthy changes to your diet?
Well, it’s true. Though losing that amount of weight in a month is known as being too fast, it could be easily lost without causing harmful side effects… if you simply change the types and quality of foods that you eat, and take that “handful” of supplements you may need to provide you with the necessary nutrients you may be missing.
Here’s what some refer to is a little known secret: Chlorella intake resulted in noticeable reductions in body fat percentage, serum total cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels.3 Here is more reading, 10 major benefits of Chlorella.
Now you know the latest secret to losing weight… and you didn’t only have to spend time reading this without spending over $50. Bet that makes you feel much better, huh?
