Most people go on a diet because they want to look better. I know that’s what finally motivated me!!  A quick look of a family vacation picture revealed some unsightly bulges in the wrong places, “man” arms and a face so large I barely recognized myself.  I had looked at this image many times until finally I couldn’t stand to look at it anymore. So I decided to go on a diet. It didn’t start off so well!  I tried a 3 day, guarateed to lose 10 lbs diet.  I DID lose 8 but w/n a few days, I’d gained half of it right back.  (I was STARVING myself for those 3 days!).  This just happened to be the same time my sister was having great success w/ AdvoCare…

If you find yourself in the same situation I was in, you should review a few facts about how your body works so you can select the most efficient diet plan.

1. Lose 3 to 10 Pounds In The First Week (depending on your starting weight/how much you have to lose)

A well designed eating plan will result in the loss of between 3 to 10 pounds in the first week. You eliminate all excess water that your body is now retaining. This fast weight loss is a tremendous boost because this much weight loss is enough to affect how your clothes fit you, especially around the midsection. This initial weight loss is the result of shedding excess water. You must not salt your food, or at least use salt to a bare minimum. Salt is responsible for your body’s water retention. It may seem hard to not salt your food. But if you substitute spices of your liking, and some hot pepper mix of your choice, you will find that they are a great help in eliminating your salt cravings. As a side benefit, your daily diet will contribute to lowering your blood pressure level. If you are considerably overweight, it’s almost certain that your blood pressure is too high. This happens even if you are a young person.The reduction in carbohydrates will also eliminate water from your system. More proteins in your food intake will also lead to shedding excess water.

2. Fat Loss vs. Muscle Loss

You must understand how your body reacts to food and exercise choices that result in fat loss or muscle loss. Of course, most people aim to lose the excess fat on their bodies. They want to eliminate those unsightly bulges that were their need to diet in the first place. Now, most diets obviously consist primarily in reducing food intake. However, since there are various types of food items, each one may have more of an impact on fat loss not muscle loss. Of course, most people aim to lose the excess fat on their bodies. They want to eliminate those unsightly bulges that were their need to diet in the first place. Now, most diets obviously consist primarily in reducing food intake. However, since there are various types of food items, each one may have more of an impact on fat loss not muscle loss. This is an important factor because it can greatly influence your overall appearance when you have shed many pounds. Most men would probably want to hang on to all their muscle mass. They only want to lose the excess fat. This requires a special combination of foods, together with weight training. Women on the other hand may want to lose overall body size. They may want to see that slim figure they remember from their teens. So they may charge ahead with less calorie intake as much as they can. However, women should also know that to reach their ideal figure, they must also keep enough muscle mass.  Therefore, what’s important here, for both men and women is the proper balance of carbohydrates and proteins. Sufficient proteins must be included in the diet to maintain the desired level of muscle mass.However, a reduced level of carbohydrates must also be maintained to reduce the amount of food energy. A shortfall in energy producing foods is made up by the body by converting body fat into energy, thus reducing stored body fat.

3. How Your Body Gets Rid Of Fat

As hinted above, the reduction in carbohydrates, the body’s main energy source, forces the body to turn to stored body fat to make up for the needed energy. This is why, a well designed eating plan, combined with the proper exercise routine can cause you to lose belly fat quickly. It should also be noted that because of the bulky nature of fat stores, even a 10% reduction in body fat will produce a dramatic change in your overall appearance.

4. The Nutrition Factor

Nutritionists emphasize the need for proper nutrition during and after a dieting program. They remind us that great harm can be done to your body by using extreme diets. The suggestions above are given with this caveat in mind. You must provide your body with the essential nutrients it needs to stay healthy.

5. Maintenance Eating Plan

As a way of summing up, you must also develop a “customized” version of the eating plan you used to lose all the weight you wanted. The reason for this is that you need a maintenance plan that will allow you more freedom in your food selections, but one that will not take you back to your old eating habits. If you don’t take this fifth factor seriously, you will join the vast majority of dieters that after losing considerable weight, they go back to their old eating habits. When you do this, your weight and excess fat make their ugly presence felt again. You gain all the weight back again, with some extra pounds for good measure. Be smart and adopt a well balanced maintenance eating plan. You’ll just need to do a little experimentation with the eating plan that showed you how to lose belly fat in the first place.

I started my weight loss/get healthy journey (@ 203 lbs / dress size 16) w/ a 24 Day Challenge.  After the 10 day cleanse I had lost just 4 lbs but 7.5″ (3″ from my waist) and felt like a million bucks!  At the end of my 24 days, I’d lost a total of 14 lbs and didn’t care if I ever lost another.  I continued on the MNS-3, Catalyst, ThermoPlus and Spark (I take anywhere from 3-6 Catalyst a day but there’s really no limit on how many you can take as these are just amino acids.  I take just 2 ThermoPlus a day but you can take up to 3..no more!  I am only drinking 1-2 Spark each day, depending on my schedule but you can drink 3 if you feel you need it).  From July 2012-Feb 2013 I’d lost a total of 43 lbs!  Though it had stopped being about the numbers on the scale and more about how I felt, it was so great to be wearing a SIZE 6 DRESS 🙂  You too can start your journey (whether it’s to lose/maintain weight, gain energy, or just get HEALTHY) to feeling like the bombshell you know you are inside.  I’m here to help you every step of the way.  I can teach you how to eat as well as offer sample meal plans & recipes.  I can help you w/ simple starter exercises to hard workouts.  I will help motivate, encouragement and pray for your success~
