The FLEX Diet, by James Beckerman, MD

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

I decide to try the flex diet by The FLEX Diet, by James Beckerman, MD. Beckerman divides the diet into three stages: Today; Every Day; and Your Way. The idea is that the plan is totally flexible and adaptable, so that you can create your own plan - one that fit you. There are 200 different Solutions listed in the book (scientifically valid things you can do to help you get in shape, be healthier, and maintain your momentum and motivation), and he explains each one in detail. But you don't do everything all at once, either. That's why there are three stages.

clearly I am on "Today."

So, what's "Today"? It's two weeks of making tiny changes to your habit, incorporating a few new ideas, building a support system, and other things like that. There are 31 Solutions listed here, for the today stage Here are the Solutions and my thoughts/responses/notes on them: This program is very similar to spark and why I like it.n

1. Commit yourself by taking a photo.
I donít take picture but it suggest you could on your phone and I think I will

2. Join a support group. Well that where you come in. You are my support group especially my different t team. .


3. Use automated reminders.
I think daily spark kind of do this.

4. Tatango!
This is a service that lets a bunch of people all get the same text message. I rather not do this.

5. Get a commitment from your significant other. I donít have significant other but mom and m,y sis does help with this.
we're independent types and partly because then we know where our food's been. Okay, getting way off-topic here. I can write about our ideas for our future in another blog post.

6. Find a weight-loss buddy. Well, I serval of these on spark and I occasinly workout with my familty

7. Follow people who inspire you on Twitter.
finally started a twitter account

9. Blog.
I usually blog on spark

10. Call your doctor.
I donít need tio call my doctor she is aware of my life changes

11. Weigh yourself daily.
I weighty myself on the wii every day.
weight and adding a trend line to see just how things are really going. (Then again, I'm a nerd; you might not find it so much fun!)

12. Warm up.
I do warm up every day.

13. Keep a food diary. I am learning to keep a food diet.
I already do this here on SP, which is awesome. I'm just going to add times for my meals in the Nutrition Tracker Notes, and I'll add what I drank in the notes, as well.

14. Drink six glasses of water a day.
I usually drink 6 cups of water a day.

15. Take a multivitamin.
I been taking one for awhile.

16. Get your calcium.
I take calcuim..

17. Consider taking fish oil. I consider it awhile back it make me sick/

18. Look into probiotics.
I donít take probiotics/

19. Try taking whey protein after exercise.
I do this . I eat breakfast what include in the morning after exercise In the evening after exercise I east yogurt.

1. Don't use exercise as a punishment. Not a problem I love exercise especially on thew wii,

22. Almonds.
2. I canít eat nuts.

23. Apples. I eat apple a lot.
24. Grapes.
I eat grapes especially red one.!

25. Greek yogurt.
I haven't tried this yet. I want to give it a try, though; there is so much protein in Greek yogurt, and I can mix it in my smothies.

26. Flax seeds.
I canít take seed.!

27. Pine nuts.
I canít eat nuts.
3. t
28. Enjoy 100-calorie snacks.
I tried to watch my snack calorie.

29. Don't overdose on energy bars.

4. I donít eat any energy bar.
So, that is in core of my food plan. This is what I will do for two week and then . it'll be on to the "Every Day" stage.

    Your diet book sounds good, and it's certainly compatible with what you do on Spark People.

  I can't eat nuts either, but flax is one seed I can do in moderation. I'd strongly suggest a good probiotic. It can really help with digestion. Way to go.

    Diets seem self defeating to me. They seem so short term.

I like to think this a lifestyle change that is going to be with me the rest of my life.....but, if this is what you need to kick start things.....best of luck!!

Also check out the Beck Diet Solution. Found that helpful.

    Doing good.....you got a plan well in place......good for you..*grin* I've read it as well and it is doable, even though a lot of it is what we already know from here at Spark, but if it helps you, more power to you....as I said, I did read it and found it very interesting especially the way he breaks it into two weeks for the things to do 'Today', then moving on to Every day.....I will be interested to learn how you do on it.....:) emoticon

    I love this idea and I love baseball!! If I were not so involved in wedding planning for my daughter and traveling to D.C. in late May I would do this. Since I live in Texas, closer to the Houston Astros, I would take them which would mean so much extra exercise which would be good for me. I also support Texas Ranger who are doing nicely. emoticon

Confession time .

Monday, April 04, 2011

Confession time . I been basely alone since Thursday night. Since that time I have eaten most of a big bag a chips, four pop, a h ugh pot of chili, 3 piece of pizza, a hot dog, 10 glasses of juice, ice cream and was on top of some good healthy meals that my portion was too big at. I just I am not ready to control my eating without some guidance. I was lonely and bored so I eat. Well that didnít hurt but me . So I am going to wipe myself up pick myself off the floor and see what I learn this weekend
But before another confession. I been telling you how my wii is go great for exercise. I till think it is but I need more. After walking up a couple of hills in the last week and walking to church yesterday I realize I NEED more. I NEED SOMETHING FOR STAMINA. So I am now going to throw some workout dvd into the mix with my wii.

No action, whether foul or fair,
Is ever done, but it carves somewhere
A record, written by fingers ghostly,
As a blessing or a curse, and mostly
In the greater weakness or greater strength
Of the acts which follow it.
~ Henry W. Longfellow.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. ~ Jim Ryan
Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity. Voltaire
Food is an important part of a balanced diet. Fran Lebowitz

    You can take control of your eating. I, too, eat when bored and it is difficult to control. First, no food is allowed to sit on the counter in the kitchen. It has to all be out of sight. Meals are served on a 9" lunch plate - and no second helpings. When I am bored, the kitchen is the room I stay away from. Go for a walk or find something to do with my hands helps. For exercise, walking outside is great exercise, especially if you have hills. You can do this!!!

    I walk at least 3 to 6 miles every other day on my treadmill. I walk a couple times a week with my husband, usually a 6 mile walk. The outside walks kick my butt. The treadmill walks are great for cardio but the outside walks really use all my body parts with the arms swinging, longer strides lots of different movements then the treadmill. It's good to change things up every couple days.

    Confession is good for the soul.

Okay... so you had your food party and like all parties that is now over and you are ready to get back on the healthy eating wagon!

I think that is a good idea about adding some workout dvd's to your wii workout. I bought myself a wii and used it for a while, now... life has gotten in the way and it sits unused. What games do you use regularly to exercise?

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

What songs tell the story of your life?

okay enough about me here are your daily motivation and jokes Daily inspiration and amusing lines

Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon... must inevitably come to pass! - Paul J Meyer

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. - Eleanor Roosevelt

Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance. - Bruce Barton

Dieting is a Weigh of Life
It's not the minutes spent at the table that put on weight, it's the seconds.
The biggest drawback to fasting for seven days is that it makes one weak.
The toughest part of a diet isn't watching what you eat. It's watching what other people eat.
An excellent way to lose weight is by skipping ... snacks and dessert.

The Government has Issued New Guidelines for a Healthy Diet
They advise you to:
1. List your ten favorites foods.
2. List your five favorite drinks.
3. List all green vegetables that look like marsh grass, fur balls or little trees.
4. List water.
5. Avoid 1 & 2; eat only 3; drink only 4. 6.

Each day I try to enjoy something from each of the four food groups: the bonbon group, the salty snack group, the caffeine group, and the whatever-the-thing-in-the-tinfoil-in-the-b
ack-of-the-fridge-is group.

Day 03 Something you have to forgive yourself for.

Friday, April 01, 2011

Day 03 Something you have to forgive yourself for.
I have to apologize to my body for abusing it for as long as I did. I was well into my last 40 when I finally change my lifestyle. I only did change my lifestyle because I almost fell off a balcony at a local movie theater because I was so sick. I have high blood pressure and was obese solely because I was abusing my body with fast food from Mac Donald and not getting off the sofa. I would just drink only pop and I donít mean diet pot and water that what I wash and swim in. I would never drink water.
Okay enough about me here are your daily motivation and jokes Daily inspiration and amusing lines

No action, whether foul or fair,
Is ever done, but it carves somewhere
A record, written by fingers ghostly,
As a blessing or a curse, and mostly
In the greater weakness or greater strength
Of the acts which follow it.
~ Henry W. Longfellow.

Worry is like a rocking chair -- it gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere. ~ Dorothy Galyean

Four things come not backóthe spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, the neglected opportunity. ~ William Hazlitt.

As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where I work, I ask the patients if they are allergic to anything.
If they are, I print it on an allergy band placed on the patients' wrists.
Once when I asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she said she couldn't eat bananas.
Imagine my surprise when several hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses' station demanding, "Who's responsible for labeling my mother 'bananas'

A mother complained to her doctor about her daughter's strange eating habits. 'All day long she lies in bed and eats yeast and car wax. What will happen to her?'
'Eventually,' said the Doctor, 'she will rise and shine.'
