Weight Loss - I Lost 40 Pounds
I did it without starving myself or taking pills. How did I do it you ask?
Well, over a year ago a friend of mine told me about the South Beach Diet. First thing I did was come online to research it. I found a great site http://www.southbeachdietguide.com/tips.html that offered some great tips,helping me to get started.
I have attempted other diet programs but it was too much to think about, worrying about how much of this or that I need to eat at each meal etc.
I just wanted something simple, was that too much to ask for?
I followed the torturous 2 week no sugar no carb theory and I lost 8 pounds. I continued following the program and then started to create my own way of healthy eating while incorporating an exercise routine.
I also fit in my pms binging of good ole sugar and salt.
I jumped on the pilate ban wagon and I have to say, it completely changed the shape of my body. I toned in places I never thought would tone up again.
Here's a easy recipe I used/use:
2 or 3 romain or green leaf lettuce leaves
1 slice of part skim mozzarella cheese
2 slices of low fat turkey breast or lean ham
1 slice of turkey bacon (optional)
mustard or low fat mayo
Spread the lettuce leaves forming a small circle. Then layer the lunch meat, cheese, mustard and turkey bacon. Roll it up and enjoy (I would make 2 lettuce wraps)
Forget about dieting, learn to eat that is a way of life.
