OUR INITIAL DIET PLAN IDEAS!


WE LOST A DRESS SIZE EASILY BEFORE CHRISTMAS LAST (2007) WE TOOK TABLETS TO MAINTAIN THIS LOSS THROUGH CHRISTMAS BY BLACKMORES, WHICH KEPT US ON THIS PLATEAU. WE CHOSE THESE BECAUSE THEY COULD BE TAKEN WITH OUR MEALS AS WE WOULD FORGET TO TAKE THE ONES YOU HAD TO HAVE HALF AN HOUR BEFORE MEALS... WE KNOW HAVE CHANGED TO A STRAIGHT CHROMIUM TABLET WHICH IS CHEAPER AND KEEPS THE SUGAR BALANCE DURING THE DAY.


Where do you live?
Perhaps you cannot get the meal-replacement bars, soups or desserts in your part of the world?
We just replace two meals a day with these, a chocolate drink in the morning, and a bar or soup at mid-day.
Then we have a good meal in the evening, even with a bit of fruit and small amount of diet/low fat ice-cream for dessert.
This main meal must be smaller portions of meat, fish or chicken, but enough to satisfy, no fatty foods or potatoes, but loads of FREE cooked/salad vegetables. No sugary drinks or alcohol,  but you can have water or low caffiene tea/coffee

In the middle of the morning and middle of the afternoon we have a little dish of salad, or a piece of fruit/raw veges(free). This is all easy to do, no counting calories, no special foods, no money to spend but the meal-replacement bars or soups etc.

It is convenient - you can take a "bar" with you when you are having lunch out or at work. They are tasty and filling. They cost money sure, but you save on a lot of other things, like doughnuts with your coffee, all sorts of foods that could be purchased etc.

Free Vegetables....low GI,  those on this list...


We do not advocate Aspartine (et al) as it very dangerous to your health, use Stevia, or honey for sweetness...if you are in Australia we can for $5 posted send you out a DVD, on the dangers of Aspartane. There are many other equally destructive types of substances put in diet food that must be avoided.

This is how OUR  regime works:

NOTE: 
WE HAVE NOW ADDED PROTEIN POWDER AND NUTS ETC., BECAUSE WE HAVE FOUND THAT THESE WILL STILL HELP YOU TO LOOSE WEIGHT AND PREVENT HUNGER...
                                    see "Fatblaster info" below for other hints ...

To save money we now make our own breakfast drink, and add the Protein powder and prepared fibre, containing psylium husks and many other great fibres, this helps the sugar balance also ... again calories but weight still comes off. We found that it was necessary to sometimes take prune juice drinks otherwise as the meal replacements did not add enough fibre re constipation.

1. Breakfast:

Half a lemon juiced in water before breakfast (on arising preferably), let settle in stomach for 20 minutes. This is a good aid to digestion, helps to clear out the gall bladder, which will help your liver to function properly eventually.

A hot cup of tea with coconut oil in it (this is very good for breaking down fat, and for those who suffer from hypothyroid ism). It must be pure virgin oil. Click here for the link to explain the wonders of Coconut oil.

A shake drink, we like chocolate, meal-replacement, which has lots of vitamins and goodies in it. We use FATBLASTER mainly..The convenience of meal-replacement is showing us a great way of losing weight reasonably quickly - and it is very nice indeed. No, we are not agents for FATBALSTER/OPTIFAST or anything like that, we have just found it good. Opti Fast contains Aspartane look alike

2. Mid-morning:

Dish of salad or piece of fruit. Tea or coffee.

3. Lunch:

Meal-replacement bar, delicious! OR a dessert which tastes like a chocolate mousse. OR a cup of meal-replacement soup, also delicious. These must be the proper bars or soups, not just no-sugar or diet items. Discuss this with us.

4. Mid-afternoon:

A piece of fruit or salad. Be sure you have only one salad and one fruit a day in these breaks - not two fruits.

5. Tea/Dinner:

A decent meal, sensible choices, steamed foods, not fried, eat a reasonable amount, plenty of free vegetables.

Fill up with a vegetable soup which is not creamy or heavy.

Then about an hour later have a dish of stewed fruit, or some strawberries etc, not too much, moderate. On top have one small scoop only of low fat, low sugar, ice cream or custard.

Exercise:

Get exercise, half an hour walking building up as you can manage is enough. Do other things you might like doing, swim or play a sport. Just move around more, get up from your chair.



Info below courtesy of "Fat Blaster" meal replacements...

1 Eat small meals, more often
Furthermore, to maintain an optimal metabolic rate, many dieticians are recommending that you eat six small meals a day, rather than two or three large ones. This is due to the fact that eating meals actually has a thermogenic effect. It's important however, to keep these meals to a realistic size.
A good rule of thumb is that no piece of meat, serving of pasta or serving of cereal should be larger than your clenched fist or the palm of your hand.

2 Enjoy your food
Eating is an essential part of life! Rather than feeling guilty about following/not following a strict "diet", celebrate your nutritious new "menu", as you follow the guidelines in the Health & Nutrition Guide and transform your life in the FatBlaster Challenge.

3 Reduce your fat intake
While foods high in fat may taste good, they have little nutritional value. Food high in fat is the main cause of high blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a major cause of heart attacks and obesity. It is also the major contributor to your flab. The simple fact is the more fat you eat, the more calories you consume. Excess calories equals excess weight. Not surprisingly, the solution is to eat less fat. Try and avoid "fast food".

4 Reduce your sugar intake
Sugar also contains the calories without the nutrients that are good for you. Most of us eat more sugar than we think. It's found in almost everything we eat from breakfast cereals, jams and spreads to the preservatives in our foods. In fact, the average person consumes 20 or more teaspoons of sugar a day! Interestingly, the body has no need for refined sugar. All the sugar our bodies require can be derived from unprocessed, natural foods such as fruit, vegetables and whole grain breads. (Carbohydrate is also a form of complex sugar). Make a habit of checking labels carefully for sugar content to avoid foods high in calories.

Note: If you know you're going to give in to temptation, make sure you take FatBlaster before indulging. Also please note that Reducticarb works for reducing the calories absorbed from complex carbohydrates, not from sugars.

5 Drink lots of water
Water is good for the mind and body. It cleans the toxins and promotes good function of the kidneys. It is also fat free and can help promote a feeling of fullness. So drink plenty of it - at least eight glasses a day! (And remember tea, coffee, soft drink, alcohol, juice and cordial are no substitute for water).

Remember the Golden Rule of Weight Management - to lose weight you need to expend more calories than you consume�
