Keeping An Eye On Sodium & Fiber + Eating Raw Veggies Was Key!
Members Were Sparked
One of my SparkTeams challenged us to track SODIUM & FIBER a week ago & I saw a -4 lb loss... so I continued watching those numbers.
The next weigh-in (a few days ago) I saw another -3.2 loss!!!
This is what I've learned to be successful for my stubborn body type: 1. Keep at the low end of my calories most days 2. Eat lots of raw freggies, low carbs 3. Resist processed foods as much as possible 4. Keep sodium & fiber in range 5. Move/exercise - jogging in place while "waiting"

Eating foods with sugar or food that quickly turns to sugar produces more insulin and because of this it signals your brain to want to eat more which causes you to gain weight. Stick to carbs that have a low glycemic load and you will lose weight faster. Most good carbs come from plant food! Eat unprocessed foods like raw veggies or steamed veggies, salads and veggie soups. Remember its also fiber that makes the difference, add whole grains and nuts to your daily diet.
