Friday of week 37: The Belly Fat Cure

Hi Guys and Gals,

 I wanted to talk about the hump today. My very good friend Robin, and many others are kind of stuck on a hump and can't seem to go down any more weight, I talked to her on the phone yesterday for a while. I would like to share some tips with you that I gave to her.

This is an important time, because this is when some people would just give up and say that it is not working. But I am here to tell you, that is absolutely wrong. You must not give up. That is the most important reason why I have gotten down as much weight as I have so far.

If you look over my weight loss progress, you will see that there is many weeks that I did not go down at all or even went up a little. For instance, this week on Monday, I started at 172 and I am 173.5 today. Am I gonna cry about it? Not a chance. I know now, that this will happen on a regular basis because of what you eat or how much water you drink, etc. Going up and down a little is normal. So don't freak out! But I feel it is real important to weigh in every morning just for this reason. So we can be accountable and make sure we are not eating the wrong things.

So back to the tips:
Don't cut out all you grain carbs all together. Try eating 1 w/breakfast and 1 w/lunch.
Choose better carbs. I used to eat brown rice and wheat pasta a lot before but I choose not to that much any more. I eat smart and delicious wheat tortillas all the time. Low in calories, high in fiber. I also like Sara Lee wheat pitas a lot too. Easy and can be used for many things pizza, sandwiches, toast.
Remember that we get carbs from other things in the day too like, sauces and veggies.
Drink lots of water.
Stop eating carbs w/dinner. Eat some kind of meat or fish w/a spinach salad or veggies or 1 of each or 2 veggies if you want.
Try real hard to be done with your dinner and everything by 7pm or 7:30 pm at the latest. Only water after.
If you are real hungry just have a piece of cheese or get some Redi Whip. Just squirt some in your mouth then drink some water.

I know its hard sometimes - but just know that we are all in this together and you are not alone.

My thought for the day:

Prosperity is not just having things. It is the consciousness that attracts the things. Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, and not just having money or things. Poverty is a way of living and thinking, and not just a lack of money or things.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
