What is happening to your diet right about now? And we are only a few days into holiday eating!
Have the sugar plums and chocolate buns eaten their way onto your thighs? It is not too late to salvage the season. Try these few changes (and give up second helping):
- At parties, scope the whole buffet before putting anything on your plate.
- Go for the raw veggies, low cal shrimp.
- Make / serve tiny tarts and cookies instead of instead of monster portions.
- It never pays to miss a meal.
- Don’t skip your exercise routine.
- Keep lots of low-cal foods on hand for impulse eating.
Of course these are all helpful, but most of all, do not give up your time with God, for he is your key to success in all areas, even fat.
Then he taught me, and he said to me,” Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. (Proverbs 4:4-5, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, thank you for reminding us that your word is full of answers, if we will but ask the questions! Amen.
Roger Troy Wilson ( Thomas Nelson) lost a lot of weight following this diet. True testimonials in the book allow that others have too.
The book is well written and easy to read. The recipes sound yummy. It will help some to lose weight because they need to believe that their bodies are different.
Bet here are the facts. We lose weight when we put less food in and more exercise out. If we take in 1500 calories and burn off 1500 calories we will stay at the same weight. That is simply scientific truth. Eliminating foods or eating them in certain combinations makes no difference to our weight loss.
Enjoy the book. It is a great read but the information is not new. It will not be your last diet. That is, unless you continue to eat low fat, eat less than your body needs and ‘force’ yourself to pick something beside dessert.
