    Puttting in the work

    2
    Been making better choices this past week food wise.  Didnt eat out and more meal prepping.  Still a work in progress but making smarter choices.  Will be better once I stop giving in to the snacks at work.  Working night shift has its downfalls.  People will often bring in snacks and they are rarely healthy.  I try to avoid them but its hard and I am tempted by sweets.  I have instead...

    Film Recommendation

    I saw a film on Amazon the other day called 'That Sugar Film'. It was amazing. Basically they proved that it's not just about calories..processed sugar is the enemy. This guy went from no sugar to 40tps a day but only in health food like juices, muesli, yoghurt, etc. He put on a stone and a half in 2 months on the same calories and exercise, and was heading towards diabetes. He looked 10 years...

    Anybody doing Atkins or Low Carb?

    1
    Since the beginning of 2015 I have lost 52 - 54 lbs. but am having a very stubborn plateau. I want to lose at least 30 more lbs. Have decided to give low-carb dieting a try. Is anyone doing Atkins or a similar low-carb plan? If so, please message me. I am NOT going to start with the "boot camp" 20 gram jump-start. Just eating protein and a few green veggies is too drastic and can also trigger...

    All of a sudden, a few extra pounds have crept on, not once, but twice or more.  How could this happen?!?  My healthy habits have been forsaken.  It was so effortless, just creeping up so nonchalantly, and soon the regular weigh-in seemed to skip days.  What?!?!   The healthy habits kept sliding to the back seat.  [Flash forward to this weekend . . .]  It’s come to grips time!   What...
