This is all about portion control and making smart decisions about what we eat. We didn’t put this weight on overnight and it is not going to come off overnight. Give yourself 12 full months of dedication. What’s 1 year when some of us have been overweight for 10, 20, 30+ years?

 How To Follow Get PHAT - Positive Healthy Active Trim:

This is going to take some effort on your part. This effort will help you being to focus on what you eat and how much you eat. As a rule-of-thumb have 1 serving of meat, carbs and veggies (2 if they’re green and leafy) for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is a bit more flexible but jump start your day with a blast of protein. Follow the outline provided for acceptable foods. You are allowed to eat prepackaged foods to help with portion control but be careful of the salt content. As much as you can prepare your own meals. Plan your snacks as well. Count your calories and fat. Get yourself a calendar. Put your weight lose goals on paper and make it visible. Also, every other week treat yourself to something IN MODERATION that you like. Put it on the calendar. Don’t completely deprive yourself but stay on track.

Nettie_Pie's top tips

1.You must exercise. There are some really good challenges right here. Commit to 45-60 minutes 3-5 times per week.
2.Read your food labels. Know the ingredients and nutritional value.
3.Take a multi vitamin every day.
4.Plan ahead when going to restaurants. Check their menus online. Look up the nutritional values. Thedailyplate.com has a listing of most restaurants.
5. I personally have 16 ounces of a protein shake everyday. Each scoop of the powder for each 8 ounces of fat free/skim milk. You can mix it with fruit or a spoon full of fat free pudding for an awesome treat. There are many protein recipes out there. 8-16 ounces within 20 minutes of your workout or first thing in the morning is supposed to be the most beneficial.
6.Have your last meal at least 3 hours before you go to bed. Get 7 or more hours of sleep each night.

About / History

I was in need of a lifestyle change. Fad diets never worked for me long term. I needed to change the way I look at food and understand much more about what I'm putting in my body. This is a work in progress but I think a good push in the right direction.
