  • Excellent article
  • This is a great article. I have always preferred to work out in the morning as it really gets me going. I've been eating three meals a day and one to two snacks. My meals are small but filling and satisfying.
    I'm finally loosing two to three pounds a week and feeling great. And love all the positive feedback from my family.
  • I'm going to try some of these tips! I think I can do these!

    It seems like when we find a balance of everything our body changes and we have to discover a new balance.

    Well, due to the amount of meds I take, I cannot afford to skip meals, otherwise I become ill I tend to have 3 meals per day, but no snacks.
  • IF works for me. I'm still eating the calories I need, but skipping breakfast (I have coffee and that's it outside of water until lunch). I'm more alert and active and I don't have any cravings. I've lost 3.6 lbs already and I'm seeing a real difference in my clothes already. I've been doing IF for 2 weeks now.

    I've been struggling to lose weight by eating 3 meals and I've tried 3 small meals and 2 snacks. It just makes me hungry all the time. But with IF I will feel hungry once in a while, but then I will drink water and be not hungry anymore.

    This isn't for everyone. It's just what works for me. I took a resting metabolic rate test and the energy I burn is 84% from fat and 16% from carbs. That's optimal and it puts me in the best position to lose weight.
  • Wondering about the reality of fasting for altering blood sugar and insulin in the body...?! Seems like NOT eating 1 or more days of a week, keeps the body refreshed and able to better handle what comes.

    I believe that healthy eating (extra fruits & veggies) combined with fasting 1-2 days each week can really make a difference in stubborn weight plateaus.
  • For me, eating throughout the day is crucial. I get hangry very easily and need to maintain my blood sugar in order to be nice! One thing I do to make sure I'm not overeating is to try not to ever feel full. Once the headache, stomach pains, moodiness, and color come back to me...I know I've had enough (and I eat as slowly as possible).

    A spoonful of peanut butter or a granola bar on the run usually do it. Meals usually consist of a side of veggies and maybe some rice. It's easy for me in restaurants because I order from the "sides" part of the menu. I'm also a lifelong vegetarian, so that may have something to do with it. However, I've lost a ton of weight (over 45 lbs) & still eat all the time. I also never feel so full I'm sick, and I can still enjoy meals with family & friends. It works for me so I thought I'd share. :)
