One Pound at a Time: Weight Loss Together (BIG DISCOUNT)

Let me be honest with you.

My class is not a diet.  Frankly, you’ve had enough of all of the desperate diets and counting points. I know I have. I’m not the slightest bit interested in counting anything. Except maybe counting on new slimmer jeans in my drawer that are one size smaller!

I know you’re thinking: “If this class isn’t a diet, then what kind of class is it?”

It’s a ‘change your ideas’ kind of class.  The best kind of change.  The kind of change that seems EASY to do, makes sense, and that you do in a group of like-minded, cool people, who are all doing the same thing at the same time.

Fatin says:

“I believe it’s time for me to be healthy so I can do all I need to and want to do. I have a special needs daughter and I need to do more with he . It is always better to do things with a team.”

Robert wrote:

“Would greatly appreciate participation in 3-month supportive educational program. The IS THE ANSWER for Americas growing obesity epidemic, not another fad diet or medication.”

Connie says:

“The reason I want to lose the pounds is to finally do something for me and not for someone else.  It’s my turn.  :):):)”

Are you at the elastic pants stage?

Are you tired of having to undo your pants after dinner, and hanging out on the weekend in sweatpants. Have you run out of ways to hide yourself in family photos?

You’re not alone.  And I’ve got some ideas that I think can help 🙂

One Pound at a Time: Weight Loss Together (BIG DISCOUNT)

**
To get you started, here’s an idea for today:
One-Bite-Less
**

If you’re about to eat something you know isn’t really super healthy, like a muffin from the coffee shop, then you can apply what I call the “One-Bite-Less” strategy.

Here’s what you do. You take off a piece of the muffin, about one bite’s worth, and you throw it away. Then you eat the rest of the muffin.

OK, what happens there? You eat less than you normally would, but you exercise your willpower BEFORE you start eating.  It’s human nature to eat until the food is gone.  So what I’m suggesting is that we remove a piece FIRST, and then eat the rest.  One-Bite-Less.

You may think that’s not a very big change, but it will suddenly begin to change the way you think about what you eat.

And that’s what healthy eating is all about:  having new ideas in our head to replace the old ideas (that frankly haven’t been working for us that well).

Tonight I’m going to do One-Bite-Less with my dinner. We’re having turkey burgers and sweet potato fries, all homemade, mostly healthy. I’m going to cut off a bite of the hamburger, bun and all, while I’m still in the kitchen, and I’m going to put it on André’s plate (because he’s skinny and has a hollow leg).

Then I’m going to eat my reduced dinner. One bite less. Easy and painless.

Lots more to come in the class. Hope to see you on the inside. Please take advantage of the 30 day free trial before tomorrow @ noon : )

I believe that this is the best way to keep the weight off. I have kept off 80lbs. for over 5 years. I still need to loose 60 more pounds. I just need to loose one pounds at a time and keep it off.

Great idea. I’m going to give it a try.
