I've added Protein Powder to my SP plan ~

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I have added Visalus to my daily program. I have been having a difficult time lately. I seem to be hungry a lot more ~ and a lot sooner than I should be, between meals. It is causing me a lot of problems. Especially after supper. As a result, I've been eating at the high end of my calorie allotment ALL the time. I haven't lost any recent weight, either.

I've tried everything I can think of ~ more protein, more water, more coffee and tea, eating snacks between meals. Not much seems to be working. Unfortunately. :(

My niece came over last week and started singing me the praises of Body by Vi and how much a person can loose, etc. etc. I tasted the powder mixed with milk ~ and it is fabulous! It truly DOES taste like cake mix batter. So, I've purchased 3 months supply. BUT ~ I told Angela, I am doing it MY way. The Spark People way. There is NO way that I am going on another diet plan. Going on a liquid diet isn't going to teach me one thing about eating properly. Sooo ~

MY plan is this ~ since I have a hard time eating breakfast, anyway, I will have a shake mixed with lots of fruit at breakfast time. I will eat my lunch and dinner, as I should. When evening comes, if I can do without a shake and just have a snack, great ~ but, if I can't, I will have another Vi shake, again mixed with freggies. Those evening shakes have already saved my bacon the last 2 nights. I have had an evening shake, which does contain lots of vitamins, both evenings and it has stopped me from eating the whole cupboard full of food. For the week prior, I had eaten one thing after another, in the evenings, until all my calories were used ~ I even knew to save calories because that was going to happen. When I have a protein shake, it doesn't happen ~ or hasn't so far. So far, so good. :)

I'm at the point of doing 'anything' in order to make my diet work ~ and continue to lose weight. If a shake works at 'some point' during the day ~ I'm going to have it. If I don't need it, I won't have it. I will deal with this problem one meal at a time. I've been doing more exercise, as well ~ but still no recent weight loss. I'm hoping this 'addition' to my program will help that problem. At some point, this ravenous hunger has got to go away. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the info on Visalus. I'm looking for some kind of way to increase protein without the added fat. Good luck with your new program

    I like your plan for the shake! I use protein shakes and bars in the same way, but have forgotten in the past few weeks due to stress. Thanks for the reminder!

    I've considered a protein drink/shake, as well, but honestly don't know where I'd fit it into my calories--would have to cut back on something else. However, if the content is primarily protein, then it should be a big help in cutting the hunger and maybe I wouldn't miss giving up the calories from somewhere. It's been recommended to me, too. Good for you for doing it your way, though!! Good luck!
