(... another beautiful sunrise....)
I mean, WEIGHT! I'm joining the gals at 5 Minutes For Mom for a regular check-in with our weight loss goals. Every week we'll share nutrition & meal ideas as well as our progress. Coincidently, hubby & I had recently decided to start our own weight loss. It's February and it's time!
A few weeks ago I caught the Dr. Oz program (who doesn't LOVE Dr. Oz?) and this diet guru was on explaining his methods - and of course, new book, The 4 Hour Body. Except this guy, Tim Ferriss, isn't really a diet guru, he's more of a nutrition & physiology nut. He has spent 20 years testing his body to figure out the best diet (foods to eat) for a low body fat index and best exercises for optimum energy & fitness.
We are jumping on his ideas - once you start understanding his number crunching & seeing the results, it makes sense. Here are 3 main things to get started as he stated on the Dr. Oz show:
- 30g of Protein within 30 minutes of waking
- Grapefruit Juice & Air Squats after binging (or bad foods)
- Ice Packs on your neck while watching tv
I've already tried the first 2 and I don't have that bloated puffy stomach after eating. I feel leaner & meaner! And feeling the burn from those air squats!
Here's to cinnamon in my coffee and spinach & beans in my eggs..... let's get going to a flatter tummy for summer!
