Losing weight is generally pretty easy. People can eat fewer calorie consumption and the weight falls off. They almost always gain it back. Maintaining a weight loss means you will have to be fastidious with your calorie consumption, and, more importantly, you will pretty much always feel hungry. This persists for life.
Eating to satiety means you gain the weight back. You can consciously control your respiration for a while too. You can breath a bit less than you normally would. Eventually though, your system shall demand you start gasping. TL/DR: you underestimate the responsibility of lifelong hunger in a weight reduced state. I know that people who want to feel self righteous about being skinny, or want a moral excuse to hate on fat people really do not want to hear this, but the evidence is on my side definitely. Sometimes losing weight, and maintaining a weight loss is still a really good idea, but it is simple never, and it’ll never feel natural.
I proceeded to go from a size 42 pants to a size 34. My acid reflux is 99.9% eliminated, some of my other medical problems are gone or lessened. Not long ago i had blood work done and my fasting glucose went from 96 to 76. My cholesterol proceeded to go from 233 to 150. I’ve also got my mile time right down to under 10 minutes.
I’m still not where I want to be but I’m a great deal nearer, and I’m on your path. I’ve (quietly) been a Whole30 follower since September 2013. I joined up with a fitness center in Fairfield, CT (Get Mo’ Fit) and they strongly inspired me to check out the diet plan they endorse-the Whole9’s Whole30 program. Reluctantly, I began my first Whole30 a couple of days later.
- Physical Health
- Recipe Sharing
- 1/4 tsp sodium replacement – potassium chloride
- Charley Horse
- Unrealistic goals
- Thyroid disease in cats
- 50 – 59202
I have since done three Whole30’s, and my new day-to-day baseline is living a Whole9 life. I’ve definitely lost more than 75 lbs… but at this point I have ceased counting. My entire life has made a whole 180 – it doesn’t matter how many pounds I’ve lost at this point, I’m truly living the life I was meant to live. I’m a Mom of two and only in my own mid-30’s, therefore i have a lot of life left to live.
I am so thankful I was presented with the tools to succeed. From Lori: In January 2013, I had been 47 years of age, miserable-but and extra fat identified to do something positive about it. I started P90X with my hubby, and made some changes to my diet. We were successful exercising for approximately six weeks before we caught a cold; after that, we exercised very sporadically through the spring.
