I am starting all over and in a new way!!

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Well Good morning all! It is a beautiful day here in sunny Minnesota, which makes this a great day to be open to new and exciting ideas.. ok the idea is not so new , but very new to me.

We have all heard of the "Atkins diet" or know someone who has done it. I have a sister who lost allot of weight following it. And I remember being at a grocery store and a lil old lady stopping me and saying she lost 80lbs eating a lb of bacon every morning..!!! I was like your going to kill yourself.. emoticon You might as well be smoking cigs. and drinking your life away.. because we have been taught this .. and all the diets we have read and studied and tried! Right.. , low carb we all agree with .. but all that fat-NO

Well I was always telling my sister how BAD her diet was.. and how my teachers (who happen to be the dept. head of 2 major hospitals here) would say its not good for you... well

I am starting: on a very serious version of this for 8 weeks!
1. eat within 30 min. of getting up
2. Because of my size- between 50-70 g. of protein for my first meal.
3. 3 meals a day and 4-5 hrs before bed time no eating.
4. for starting out no nuts or fruit (or very little)
5. and when not hungry do not eat. except in the morning -YOU MUST
6. coconut oil and real butter (GOOD)
7. can have olive oil but -do not warm it! Only drizzle over food) something about how when its heated it brakes down...
8.25-30 (can be up to 50) just because of my size, and eat most carbs in the morning.

and that's about IT!

So I know like myself there are allot of people who will read this and think -
But I have already starved, pills, shakes, healthy clean, and the list goes on and on..
and I have a client who started this last time in October just as I did and she is done with the loosing and now has to maintain..
I know the slower you loose the longer you may keep it off! we have all heard that over and over and it is true because of the fact, you had more time to train your mind and body on a new way of life..

oh I have been loosing , but for the last mo or so very very slow.. a lb. a week.
So I am off to start a new journey with Dr. Jack Kruse.com
He is a neurologist and was a dentist in his past.

And I ask you before you make a negative comment on my blog, please go to www.JackKruse.com and read why this is what I need to do if repair my insides before my
"LIFE CHANGE" will work.

You can reply to his blog and by the end of the day he will answer you! Its a very great thing.
I -with my family's history of Dr. and more Dr's , like allot of you, never has anyone of the Dr. I have met gotten back to me so fast!

So (after I get primped) emoticon emoticon

I am going to start a vlog and put my first ever picture of my self on spark! To keep track of my progress good or bad..
So wish me the Best!

Thanks for reading!

    I am so very late commenting but I wanted to tell you that after I read your blog I went on to check out Dr. Kruse's website - I ended up spending hours reading through it! So much info to take in but all very interesting! I am trying to take some of his theories and apply them to my "diet". I am anxious to hear how it is going for you...:) I am ALSO anxious to see your very first vlog!!!!!! :)

    Your plan sounds great... I don't eat in the morning all of the time. I haven't found that it causes me any problems with my Leptin levels, etc.... But everyone is different and we have to tweak the variables to suit our own unique physiology... It's sometimes takes trial and error to find that right balance. It has taken me years to find that the Paleo/Primal lifestyle is the one for me. However, I am following a hybrid of them, and as the Primal diet allows, an 80/20 approach to the diet. I include some non-paleo/primal foods in my diet based also on Paleo 2.0, but I only do this on the days that I need more carbs because of intense workouts, i.e., strength training... on the days that I have intense workouts, I try to keep my carbs under 100, or just up to 100 grams... On the other days, between: 50 - 75... my protein: 70 - 140; fat: 40 - 60... I am still playing around with the macros.

    Well, sorry for the long post... Keep up the good work, before long you will be saying... emoticon emoticon ~ Dee
