Preparing Yourself & Your Daily Diet for Weight Loss Success
My daddy didn't enjoy anything more in life than eating and gardening, and the two went hand-in-hand, and in his case - hand-to-mouth.
I remember one holiday in particular when he had loaded his plate so high that we could barely see his face and my brother asked him in a sardonic tone, "Would you like a shovel?"
Before long, I needed a shovel too - something that you're probably aware of if you have followed Diet Bites over the years.
Yes indeedy, I lost substantial weight - more than one hundred and twenty-five pounds so many, many years ago.
Permanent Weight Loss is Yours, If you Seek to Lose
Permanent weight loss is something that you-too can achieve and I'm here to provide you with as much encouragement as possible. No matter what you weigh, you can lose those extra pounds and take control of your daily diet, your health and the path you want to follow for your future.
Unlike most weight loss gurus and health experts who have never experienced a Fat Day in their life, I know what is involved in dropping those pounds, and most importantly, I know what it takes to keep those pounds from returning.
I know the emotional pain the overweight individual faces; I know the health struggles and damage that those extra pounds can inflict upon the body. I've been there and it wasn't fun; it wasn't pretty. So many times, I was passed-over when it came to job advancements due to my weight. I remember the mocking gazes and comments that were so hurtful. If you're feeling this type of pain, then walk beside me and begin your weight loss journey today. The first three days will be super easy!
Searching for Weight Loss Clues in Your Current Daily Diet
Let's begin by examining one of the best tools at a pre-dieter's disposal - their current daily diet. Taking stock of the type of foods, the amount of foods and the source of foods that are in the current daily diet before a new diet is embraced provides the dieter with a meaty capsule of information which can assist in making smarter, healthier food choices for permanent weight loss success.
If you can recall what you have eaten over the last two or three days, then you're already a step ahead in your weight loss plan. If not, simply grab a notebook or a sheet of paper and start jotting down everything that you consume throughout the course of the next three days.
Be sure to count the amount of beverages that you consume, as well as gum and snacks. Gum? Really? Counting the extremely low calories in gum is 'that' important? Yes, particularly for heavy gum chewers like our Dieter Fanny as we'll soon learn more about below. After Dieter Fanny charted her three day daily diet, she was shocked to discover that almost 400 calories were contributed to gum. That's enough calories to enjoy a healthy meal.
Also, try to measure your servings if possible and DO NOT cut back serving sizes at this time, and DO NOT add serving sizes to your daily diet during these three days because what you record is vital information that can greatly assist you in the success of your weight loss plan, and in permanent weight loss.
If you dine out, ask the restaurant for a nutrition guide so you can accurately determine your calorie consumption. If you're dining at home, read the labels to determine your calorie consumption. Next Step | Part 3 | Part 4
