OMG It really does work!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

I've been on this weight lost venture for over 5 years now. I've learned so much about how to eat to lose weight. I've heard it over and over again that you've got change up your workouts every once in a while to break through a plateau. I've done that so many times only to see no results. Of course I know too that it's in the foods. Until recently I decided to do what I've heard. "Increase your calories". You know I've heard it and I was scared to increase my calories because I thought I'll gain weight instead of lose weight. This past week I increased my calories to 1500-2000, maintained my daily workouts and lost weight. Yes, I lost weight. It really does work. I can't wait to see how much more weight I'll lose while eating more food.

    Congratulations on your "learning experience." When you have been on a long road for weight loss, it can seem so counter-intuitive to eat more to lose. Several years ago, I was hitting the gym every day and eating low-fat to no-fat (yes, another learning experience) and not losing any weight. I checked in with the nutritionist and she suggested eating a piece of peanut butter toast in the morning. I thought she was cra...er, incompetent. It took me a few days to work up my nerve to eat that silly piece of toast.

It worked like a charm.

It will be exciting to see the progress you make with this new information. Please keep us posted.
