I am a Wellness Coordinator and taught a "YOU" course at work to approx. 30 people. The diet was particularly successful for the men, that is, right up until the holidays did their damage. I diet along with everyone because I need it, and need to set a good example for others. I find this diet provides a path for slow but sure weight loss provided you stick with it and do the required amount of exercise (and I love the workout DVD). Chocolate is my undoing. I try to keep a mental picture from the YOU book in my head - the one that shows the omentum as a skirt of fat around your belly. THAT keeps me motivated!

Ice Cream
Thank you everyone! I'll have to try some of your ideas. I can't tolerate sugar substitutes as they seem to give me sores in my mouth but some of the low fat ideas will work maybe. I'm developing a taste for greek yogurt with fresh fruit that seems to satisfy pretty well.

Snacking at Before Bed
Although the best idea is not to have anything within two hours of going to bed, first try:
glass of water (makes you feel full), then
(1) part-skim string cheese or
small bowl of whole grain cereal with fat-free milk.

You realize, of course, that it is the tv ads that are making you crave something to eat....maybe a different wind down routine would break the snack habit (like reading a chapter of a book makes you tired but doesn't make you hungry).

Ice Cream
I wish I could find something to replace an ice cream sundae. When it is hot over the weekend, the urge to splurge at Brewster's is overwhelming. Any suggestions?Cool

I've been doing this diet for a while now.....more of a lifestyle change than anything else, so I thought I should record it.

25 July 2011

Stopped using the elevator at work and the parking garage, and cut way back on useless carbs (all the fun white stuff like breads, and desserts).
