Weight loss is nothing new folks! A short and fast synopsis all in one right here!
I wanted to share with you my thoughts on this subject. I am 64 and getting older. Over the years I have "learned," noticed the used the word learn because I thought I knew everything I needed to know about losing weight or should I say get skinny.
OHhhhh boy was I wrong. Have you heard of the American Diet? Anybody?
It's very simple, this diet recommended by "I don't know who" said to lose weight you need to eat less and exercise more. Simple to understand right. I know us humans till this day believe that stuff. Why? Because when I go to work I go on a long straight an away road, and I see lots of big people jogging on the sidewalk. Yes I do see some who are slim, etc. I shake my head and in my mind I feel it ain't gonna work for them. In my humble opinion.
People in our society believes this fallacy, OK I cannot lie or half-lie, there are success stories but, to me, in the big percentage of things this diet does't work, sorry.
I can hear you say, "Frank now you got my guts stirred, I want to argue with you with my success story." Hold on there my dear friend, I'm talking about the majority. A guess on my part, 1 1/2 percent will make this a success story, but the majority, nope, no way, nada, waste of precious effort, why they can learn a better way.
Umm.....so why am I saying this. Ready? Here goes.
Remember what I said, eat less ( of any kind of food and exercise more) Well, that can't be true. Yes, that is not possible and hear's why.
Eat less does not mention selective eating. Yup, you heard it right. Did anybody say to you eat "certain" kind of foods and exercise? BET NOT MY DEAR FRIENDS. Big trouble for you if you did not hear this important advice and hear's why.
Because you ain't eating the right foods, sure eat less "appears" to make lots of sense. What kind of foods.
Now going forward it's all science folks. Not to worry I'll make it simple so you can understand. I hated science, but when dealt with my health and it does't work I get a little pissy. Enough of my anger. Please for give me, I get really involved in this subject because I wasted too much time I went on this stupid diet-plan and always gained back my weight.
Here's the science in case you wanna learn, if not please stop reading, but the truth must be heard. If you're not a Rocket Scientist rejoice, you can learn it right here.
Your body have 2 ways of getting energy so you can walk, run, weight-left, drive your kids to school and to fight with your neighbors, etc., etc.
The truth is folks and this is a biological fact. YOUR BODY IS ALWAYS EATING 24/7 remember this because like me, I forget. So please seer it in your brain cells. If you understand this it'll make it really easy for you to visualize what is happening to you.
1) Sugar foods,
such as Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, bakery -pastries, rice, potatoes, oranges, tangerines, teriyaki sauce, raisins, nectarines, grapes, Nestle's cocoa, Ghiradeli chocolate, etc. etc. The list goes so long it can reach the horizon, that has sugar.
Another word for the above is called CARBOHYDRATES. When consumed it immediately burns into energy but get these folks and this is a big get this. NOT ALL OR MAYBE ALL GOES STRAIGHT INTO YOUR FATCELLS. You can see it around the stomach like mines, around the arms, legs, face, better stop there.
There is this fat hormone you may be aware of it's called, insulin. Yep, bet you didn't know that's really a good description of what it is. When you eat carbs, please refer it to the above listings I shared. This hormone insulin that originates from your pancreas shoots into your system to clean out the sugar from the blood. Next it stores it into your fat cells, as a reserve.
"Reserve for what, you say???" For when you need it. This is the hint for you to get in your head. It will get clearer and clearer as I move along. Below will pull the cover off this secret not many people know or understand.
Another source of energy is from the fat you accumulated through your adult years. I was 117 lbs, 5'-8" tall. As I got older say in my early 30s, I was about 125-130 lbs. I got married and weight at the time 145 at age 36. When in my 40 I plumped up to 155-160, not healthy. At age 47 I was a whopping 230+ lbs. This is when I learned about how the body works. I had to. I could honestly be described by anyone who saw me as a "large guy." lols.
2) Your body gets energy from your body fat.
Nah you say! Don't lie to me Frank.
No it's backed by science folks no need to argue with me it's all there in science and research articles on this subject. You actually drain your fat by avoiding carbohydrates. Your weight will naturally drop off. No fad diet or pills needed. Just understand how your body work, that's all.
So what are these foods that fall into non-carbohydrate foods or non-sugar foods?
Here's my list, ready!
All types of meats, can be Vienna sausage, spam, fish (eat the skin), chicken, (eat the skin), eggs as much as you like (eat the yolk), cook with animal fat (keep the monounsaturated that drains from the meat, pour it into a cup and use it later to cook with) Bacon(keep the oil) and mix it with the left over oils. Pork, etc. you get an idea, does't your.
Veggies to eat on this no-carb diet. Cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, herbs and spices. Stay away from corn and carrots, remember this. They both have sugars in it. Have you heard of "High Fructose Corn Syrup" take a wild guess why it's called that.
Fruits? Anything that says berries at the end; Strawberries, blue berries, rasp berries, black berries, No cherries, grapes, the rest are full of sugars.
Oils? Animal fat, coconut oil, Use olive oil on salads, high temp breaks down the molecular structure of this oil. Avoid unsaturated fats like polyunsaturated fat (veggie oils), transfats-hydrogenated fats. Go study what that is, too long to explain here.
Sooooooooooooo how does it happen Frank? Well I guess I have to tell you. When your body gets free from eating carbs for 72 hours(3 days) your body goes into what scientist calls "Lypolysis Ketosis" no worries it simply means "Fat burning mode."
Where does your fat leave your body? Through your urine and breathe. No joke though your mouth. Warning when on this way to losing weight take a little breath freshener, will make acquaintances happy.
What are the side effects? AWESOME ENERGY, LIKE YOU'RE A KID AGAIN, EVEN LOOK YOUNGER, TOO. I'm 64 it didn't affect my looks, still ugly.
Your well-being will go out the roof, I mean sky-high, Your focus will be sharp at any age. Your emotions will settle down, not as emotionally off-the-handle. Your weight loss will be just the gravy. Again, your high-energy will be your top priority. ALL IS GOOD FOLKS, ALL IS GOOD.
I slimmed down to 165 lbs. Now too, remember it's a constant
struggle. My weight see-sawed between 180 to 195. Sugar foods are very
addictive and I can easily jump off the wagon.I hope what Is share with you will work for you, it did me.
Love you all my WA members, I do mean it.
To your health for 2019!
