I havent been on Sparks People site for around 3 months. Finding time to sit and log my food has become a big struggle for me. I have been at a stand still for around 5 months in losing my last 10 pounds. I excerise 4 X week outside the home, 45 minutes in the morning before going to work and usually walk 30 minutes during the day. So excerise is not the problem. I even ran a 5K first time ever !
I have a friend that found this book called The Fast Metabolism Diet from Haylie Pomroy.
Dont mean to stear away from the Sparks Solution book which I did get and read , it just didnt work for me. This is not really a "diet" persay, its all healthy eating. There are 3 different phases of foods on certain days. But you do have to give up wheat, soy, corn , dairy, reifned sugar,caffeine, alcohol, fruit juices and sweetner.. You stay on this for 28 days straight. Yes you wil lose weight. My friends have lost over 40 pounds, I tried it for 28 days and lost 6 of my 10 punds. I was THRILLED ! This is something you dont have to do after the 28 days, but if you dont get to your weight loss you want to be at you keep following the 28 day program till your weight is where you want it to be. I love this because no pills are taken to lose weight, its all about healthy eating. I have ate items on this program that I would never of thought of eating. Sprouted grain bread and tortillas, I have never heard of before but now I eat these and love them.. Buffalo hamburger would of never guess that would be any good. Excellent love it. THe good thing about this program is the meat you can eat ! wow alot of it. There is an app for $1.99 for Apple Ipad or phone , once you download and put in your weight it tells how much oz and cups are needed for the amount of weight you want to lose... Carob chips, I have never heard of before, I make my own granola bars with these chips, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut, natural peanut butter, honey , chia seeds and flax seeds. AWESOME I will never buy another granola bar , will make my own. Deli Meats and jerky as long as they are nitrate free....
So I will not be logging anymore of my foods but still will be popping in and out for logging weight and measurements. I also love the recipes on here and just making new friends and keeping in touch with old friends.. All the support i have gotten from Sparks people has been awesome. I love the DVD's and will still be doing them into my routine..
I have 5 more pounds to go to hit my GOAL ! I know I can do it now, I am on a roll !
Peace ! xoxox
