Fast Food - Detoxing - Cycling
Sunday, February 09, 2014
It can be difficult for me sometimes when I see people losing a lot of weight fast; it makes me want to get on THAT bandwagon because it is taking me a long time. I have to keep telling myself that the tortoise always wins the race in the end. It might seem like I am losing the race; however, here is what I am learning on SP about some of these fast weight-loss ideas.
Fasting – most of the weight that comes off is water. If you are going to fast, fast from Fast Food
Detox – Can spell disaster because you devoid your body of valuable nutrients and oh by the way… it is short lived and it is not backed by science
Calorie Cycling – when you eat less than your calorie range one day and above your calorie range another day (trying to trick your body into losing weight). Cycling works best on a bike!
Best way, is to stick to your calorie range (the hardest part for me) and to eat whole food packed with nutrients
So instead of trying to catch up with a Fad Diet, I am learning to celebrate my victories – especially non-scale victories. My victory for the past couple of days is my step count (over 7,000 steps) and my water intake (at least 8 glasses a day). I have been steady in both! :::patting myself on the back:::
Instead of worrying about how well others are doing, I am grateful to them for leading the way on this journey into a healthier lifestyle and for being such GREAT encouragers and supporters! Thank you!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!
