How I Lost 14 Pounds Without Feeling Hungry
Anyway, here's how I finally lost weight:
I eat a lot of vegetables.
I go on really long walks.
I've been following Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D. recommendations, but I'm not a 100%. https://www.facebook.com/SusanPeirceThompson/ I'm also involved in a Gideon Games challenge, but I'm not even very good at that, either. And even though I know I would be a lot more successful if I adhered to her plan with undeviating diligence, I'm struggling to find/create a forever life-style. But I would recommend Susan's book to anyone interested in dramatically improving your life.
Here's the benefits of the diet I've enjoyed:
I sleep better.
My digestive problems melted away.
My food cravings disappeared.
Menopausal symptoms (hot flashes) dramatically decreased.
(These last four items are much more of an incentive than how I look in my clothes.)
Here's what I eat and when:
9 a.m. oats, berries, half a banana, almond milk and a handful of cashews.
(I soak 1 ounce of oatmeal in 6 ounces of almond milk over night. In the morning I add the fruit.)
2 scrambled eggs with turkey sausage and peach salsa and a piece of fruit.
1:30ish p.m. 8 ounces roasted vegetables, 4 ounces of lean meat, and a piece of fruit.
a salad with lean meat, cheese, fruit, nuts, and salad dressing.
6 p.m. 4 ounces lean meat with 8 ounces vegetables.
Some of my new favorite foods:
sweet potatoes with butter and cinnamon
roasted vegetables drizzled with olive oil and seasonings
Anyway, I hope this helps. And daughter, this is for you, and for anyone else interested in a happier life.
