Konjac And Garcinia Cambogia 2x/day To Feel Full And Speed Up Weight Loss
Members Were Sparked
I struggled with constant hunger - I mean I felt like I was STARVING all the time. I started taking Konjac Root (Nutrigold) 2x/day (first thing in the morning, and early afternoon) along with Garcinia Cambogia (heard about it on Dr. Oz - not proven to work though) and it has REALLY helped. I also cut way back on gluten, artificial sweeteners and any added sugar, which probably also helped make cravings subside. I lost 50 lbs. in 7 months and feel fantastic.

I was battling the speed of my jogging for 2 years. I was stuck on 3.9 - 4.3 MPH. After trying to walk 1 minute then jog 4 - I felt I could up my speed because I got a minute break in between. That upped my regular jogging speed to 4.5 MPH.
I have found out recently that there is a solution to being hungry throughout the day. EAT more often! I began scheduling my meals 2 - 3 hours apart and drinking a bottle of water with each meal. I also made sure that my meals consisted of fruits, vegetables, and meats, eliminating all processed foods. Not once have I felt hungry with this plan. Do I desire the old foods, of course? Do I cave to the desires? 95% of the time NO! Because I don't need them. Weight loss is moving towards my goal.
The benefits of eating this way is a steady (but slow) weight loss, never feeling hungry, and content with what I eat.
Increase your food volume, be more satisfied & lose weight
Choose foods that have a high water content (fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, cooked grains, lean meats, poultry, fish, beans) to increase satisfaction.
My favorite example is to compare two sandwiches, one with 4-5 oz sliced turkey and 1 oz cheese; one with 2-3 oz sliced turkey, a sliced tomato, 1 cup of fresh spinach, and 1 cup of sprouts. The sandwich with less protein and filled with veggies has less calories, more volume and will be more satisfying. Enjoy!
