I’ve been 5 weeks on Judy’s -my friend who is helping me lose weight-  weight loss plan, as it seems it is working very well with me,  i have lost one kilo in one week,  i like it , I’ve been eating every thing i love from chocolates to French fries, ice cream to haystack salad and still losing weight without being hungry, or having cravings to my favorite foods or even have the feeling of ” why everyone is able to eat anything they want and everything is a no to me”  .

Today her laid back system has been changed, before when ever i crave a chocolate, i would eat a bite of it, drink water, wait for a while or go work out then i would take another bite .. at first  i used to eat the whole bar, but after couple of times a bite would do it for me and i don’t feel like buying chocolates when ever i see them , even if eat it i don’t feel attached at all, i even started to eat fruits instead.

Judy didn’t let this pass.. now since i started to have these cravings switch from fatty foods and rich in sugar to more less tasteful food.. she changed my eating plan..

Early in the morning:

When i wake up for morning prayers, i would drink 2-4 glasses of warm water almost 1 liter

Breakfast:

I start my breakfast with any kind of fruit with a cup of milk .. then a cup of water

After i get dressed and ready to leave, i would eat anything i feel like “eggs, waffles, a sandwich” with the suggested portion for every type of food.. i should talk about that later.
Snack: if hungry i would have water  – ofcourse- if i had craving for something sweet then i would have from 3-5 dates OR if my cravings were something salty i would have carrots, celery or cucumbers

Lunch: a piece of protein, 3/4 a cup some carbs, 1 1/2 cup greens  and any kind of juice with less than 3 grams of sugar and less than 80 cal.

Snack: yogurt, a fruit or three bites of any cravings

Dinner: a piece of protein (fish or turkey) , 1/2 a cup carbs, 2 cups of greens

Dinner should always be before 7 pm .

But on Fridays, breakfast will be a pomegranate.

My desserts should be dates or fruits (2 pieces per day)

I’M HAPPY !

After the short introduction, all i can say i am happy to do this weight loss program with my friend, it is a great feeling to lose weight with someone close and someone you trust .

In my experience with weight loss and diets are brutal, one day i am happy and energetic, the other i am feeling down and depressed because the scale isn’t moving and so tried from all the work out.

Now with the new life style provided from my weight-loss expert who is OBESE at the moment things seems to be on the happy lane .. working out is not painful anymore , it is fun and energetic. Not eating certain things doesn’t need Lot of self torturing thoughts of “i should have a bite” “no if i had a bite i wont resist”

“stop don’t eat” ” look at that skinny gal” ..etc today i can happily say “No thank you i don’t want to eat this chocolate” without having second thoughts or cravings for a week after.  Or if i was craving something i would happily eat some of it and stop after couple of bites because there is no such a thing as -you can’t eat a bite- as what Dr. Atkins claimed in his book “A bite is a kiss of failure” that’s not true, this little bite gave me the feeling that i can eat what ever i want, but i can’t pig out on food because of many reasons that i already believe in.

From my believes food is for energy, for our organs to function well, for our brain to send its chemistry all over my body, just like making love, or cooking Rice -nice way to put it- it you do it too little it will never cook, or your partner will never get aroused, but if you over do it you will kill the romance and ruin the rice.

I really can’t stop thanking my friend for helping me out, what she is doing to me is great, I’m happy within my own skin, eating small meals and RICH ones too, having a cup to 2 cups of salad per meal, and a soup to start my meal with.  Drinking plenty – i mean  ALOT- of water, cold and warm BOTH are important, having a 30 minute cardio every morning and yoga or Pilate’s every other evening, she recommended swimming, i didn’t do that yet.. but i will soon. Taking my multivitamin dosage daily from two servings of fruit, two servings of milk products and i can still have a bar of Sneakers 🙂 the regular size.

Yes, i’ve been eating all kinds of the deserts i love, cheese cake, chocolates, muffins.. you name it. But, i have to drink something warm before i start eating any of those yummy things – caffeine free drinks-  i went with warm water, green tea my favorite then before taking any bite i have to take three deep breaths eat a bite, then another six deep breaths , then nine deep breath. it really made me stop pigging out on those foods. I even eat french fries the exact same way.

The new lifestyle is LOVELY.

Simple techniques to happy weight loss.

I LOVE YOU FRIEND
