My friend is still waiting for her “magic diet pills” to come in the mail, for those that want to lose weight without the use of pills or other substances, there is some good news. I am going to tell you how to lose 7 pounds in 7 days. Everyone can do this, here is how:
Eat Breakfast- I am sure you have heard this before but this is one of the best ways to jump start your metabolism and get your body ready to start burning fat for the day. Eating breakfast also helps to balance your sugar levels and helps you go into a carb craving binge later on in the day.
Protein and no carbs. I am not telling you to give up cards forever, but if you stay away from them for a week and replace carbs with protein you will lose at least 7 pounds in 7 days and probably much more. Carbs are bad for a lot of reasons, obviously we know that they turn to sugar and then fat but they also are “empty” in the sense that they will not provide us with the feeling of being full and satisfied. Protein on the other hand, is more satisfying and fills us up. Protein also takes more energy for our body to digest so we actually burn more fat by digesting the protein.
Snack, Snack, Snack- You have my permission to snack oftern, you should eat healthy snacks every 2 hours. This will boost your metabolism and also help stop you from overeating during your main meals. The key here is”HEALTHY” snacks. Don’t kid yourself here, you know what is healthy and what is not. My favorites are peanut butter and apples, sometimes together.
Pump up your work outs. You do not need to work out like a crazy person, but you do need to work out. Three 30 minutes sessions per week should work well. The trick here is to make these work outs intense. You should be moving constantly druring these workouts to pump up your heart rate. Here is what I do. I do the elliptical for 10 minutes to get things going, I then rotate between pushups, crunches and jump roping for the next 20 minutes strait. It is not as hard as it seems.
If you follow this advice, you will lose 7 pounds in 7 days.
I am happy to report that I am feeling great, it did take me a little while to recover from the colon cleansing situation. I have been getting back into the flow of exercising regularly and have been getting back into Yoga in a big way. I am actually thinking about becoming a certified Yoga instructor. I am starting to seriously look into it but I am not sure if I have the time right now.
Anyway, the point of this post is to let you know that my friend has finally selected the brand of ACAI “pills” to buy. I was very surprised as I looked into this her that there were some many choices out there. I naively thought that there was one source to get the berry.
There are literally over a hundred different companies that market this product. I looked at the ingredients on many of them and they all seem to contain the same active ingredients.
As a nutritionist I have been inundated with questions about ACAI berry, what is it? Does it work?Is it safe?I have decided to write about this topic for the next 30 days on my blog.I will not be partaking in the acai diet, I instead will be using my good friend Julie as the human guinea pig.I figured it would make sense for me to start off with the basics.
ACAI berry is a berry that is indigenous to the Brazilian rainforest.It has become all the rage lately thanks to the book by Dr. Perricone and Opera.As you know if Opera is behind it, it will be a winner (think, Obama!) This berry is being touted as the most nutritious food on Earth.The berry is supposed to help aid weight loss and it is now the latest diet craze out there right now.Does it work?I am not sure, but I will have a better idea in 30 days.Stayed tuned for the ACAI Experiment.”
If you can’t wait 30 days and want to try it out for yourself now, this is the site I used, seems to be the best deal out there.
It has been 30 days since I started this crazy experiment and all I can say is Thank God. It has been a very unpleasant 30 days and I am really glad it is over.
Let me start with the last couple of days and then I will conclude with a final evaluation. The last couple of days were pretty eventful as more toxic sludge has exited my body. Some of the movements were very large in length while others were very loose. It seems like stuff was just coming out in all shapes and sizes.
As a final evaluation, I can say that it does work. I have excreted stuff from my body that would still be in there had I not taken this product. What I will also say is that it was one of the most unpleasant months of my life. I experienced stomach pains and discomfort more days then not. My bowel movement schedule was all over the place. Sometimes I would go 8 times a day and then not at all the next day.
Instead of being filled with energy, I was exhausted most of the time. I drank plenty of water but I always felt dehydrated. I just drank 32 ounces of water and I am dying of thirst right now. As far as the weight loss is concerned, I lost just under 4 pounds. My jeans are definitely looser and my stomach is noticeably flatter.
I guess I am glad that I took the product, but I do not think that I will take it again, certainly not for a long long time. Mt advice would be to use it if you really think you need to. If you do not, I would stay away because the discomfort and the impact on your life may not be worth it. I will leave it up to you to decide.
I hope you enjoyed the Colon Cleaner “series”. My next experiment will be evaluating the ACAI berry diet. Luckily, my friend will be the guinea pig this time. I need a break.
I am really having a bad go with this. The last couple of days I was severely constipated and had a terrible 2 day long headache. I am not positive if the headache was associated with the cleansing, but I suspect it is. Today everything broke loose, it was a day where I needed to be within 10 feet of a bathroom at all times. I had the longest and thickest bowel movement of my lifetime. It was I like i was holding this in for 20 years instead of 2 days. I felt immediate relief after this latest movement. I also felt 2 to 3 pounds lighter, and I probably lost in an inch of my waistline. I can tell you that I am losing weigh, I have not stepped on the scale yet but I can tell with how my clothes fit. It seems like this stuff is working but it is not very pleasant to go through. I have felt so bad over the past three days that I have not worked out at all. I can’t wait until after next week so I can be done with this and get back to my normal life and my normal bowel movements.
side note- I mentioned in several earlier posts that I would be testing out the ACAI berry diet and talk about that next. After this experience I can tell you that I will not be doing it. Fortunately, my good friend was telling me that she wanted to try it out and she agreed to let me use her as a case study. This should be fun, so stay tuned.
