“9. Stop restraining yourself completely
You’ve got good intentions: in an effort to eat well, you tell yourself that the doughnut is off limits or the burger is sinful or a “”bad”” food.
But your perception matters.
Dieters have more intense and harder-to-resist cravings than non-dieters or people who are just trying to maintain their weight, particularly for their off-limits foods, according to a study published in Appetite.
When you deny yourself foods you love all the time, it will build up and explode, making you more likely to binge.
Allowing yourself a little something every day, whether you’re looking to lose weight or not, can help take the power away from your cravings.
10. Stay away from foodie social media
Gooey grilled cheese. A fudge-topped sundae. Pizza. Food porn is fun to look at, but don’t be shocked when suddenly you’re struck with a desire to run to the nearest Mexican restaurant or gelato store.
In a small preliminary study from the University of Southern California, researchers found that images of high-calorie foods spark more activity in the reward areas of the brain than photos of low-cal fare.
There are plenty of health bloggers out there who create delicious-looking-but-nutritious food, so if you can’t resist food porn, at least follow people who post pics of healthy eats.
Maybe you’ll be inspired to cook something new tonight.”
I’m Ashley. And I tried it all.
Atkins, Southbeach, Nutrisystem, Weight watchers, Jenny Craig.
And I even listened to that silly baseball guy who talked about the shakes on TV for all those years.
And yet, since I had my second daughter at 28, I haven’t been able to lose any weight…
Well, maybe a few pounds for a little while but then it all comes roaring back when I stop whatever gimmick I’m on that month.
You should’ve seen me in my college days. I was tall, slim and had been blessed by the good lord with an hourglass figure that always turned heads.
Hey, it’s how I attracted my husband Tom!
But after Andrea was born… I couldn’t get back down to my normal 130. I’m 5 foot 7, and that was always a great weight on me.
Yet I’ve spent the better part of 20 years pushing 220 pounds.
Then one sleepless night, I stumbled on a Reddit post on how to lose weight effectively.
The post was written by Adrian Thomas, a retired paramedic from California who’d stumbled upon a weight loss solution that helped his overweight wife Amy finally lose 65 pounds.
The biggest revelation from Adrian’s post was that women in their 30s, 40s and even 50s don’t lose weight and are getting increasingly larger not because of junk food and lazy lifestyles as we’ve been constantly told by health professionals and gurus.
Instead, it is the toxins from micro plastics, from modern day pollution, from the food you eat — basically from everywhere — accumulated inside your body for years, that have caused hormonal imbalance in your body, forcing it to store fat.
So, no matter how much you work yourself to death in the gym or restrict your diets as much as you want, the metabolism destroying toxins inside your body makes absolutely certain you never lose an ounce of fat.
At that moment, it dawned on me that it wasn’t my fault that I could not lose weight.
All of the things I thought I was doing right, all the advice I’d receive from health professionals – starving myself, running until I ached, eliminating carbs, yadda, yadda, yadda — they weren’t really helping me because I wasn’t fixing the root cause of weight gain.
All that time and effort, not to mention thousands of dollars down the drain because I was fed lies by these so call health professionals who merely helped me treat and mask the weight gain “symptoms”, while all this time, toxic agents remained in my body making me gain more and more weight.
Can you believe that?
Adrian continued to explain that with only some minor changes, no matter your age, shape or size, you can flip your metabolic switch into fat burning mode for much longer than normal.
Adrian then shared a list of ingredients that you should eat, which will immediately trigger your body to melt away fat and make you feel more energetic.
He also explained that the natural ingredients will also restore healthy hormone levels, reduce fat storage and stop the uncontrollable cravings while helping to support a healthy heart, brain and joints.
I read what Adrian wrote again and again and jotted down everything I needed to do to fix my weight problem.
Despite Adrian showing a “before” picture and an “after” picture of his wife Amy from a couple of months ago, I was skeptical, especially when Adrian called what he did for his wife a “7-second hack”.
But I owed it to myself to at least give the ingredients a try.
And I was desperate to try anything.
Plus, Adrian obviously knows what works for fat loss since he single handedly helped his wife lose 65 pounds.
I immediately began eating the ingredients Adrian provided listed and followed the other steps he’d share in his post.
You won’t believe what happened next!
In a single week, I lost 9 pounds and could really see the difference right away. My hips seemed slimmer and my jeans started to loosen up.
So I kept following Adrian’s advice and I actually lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
I’m not down to 130, but at my age and for my height, I think 145 is pretty darn good.
I look amazing in a sun dress and I feel 20 years younger… and to tell a bit of a secret… Tom can’t keep his hands off me!
Since then, I have found out that Adrian made it his mission in life to share this healthy weight loss discovery with women all across the world.
Adrian’s discovery has made such a big impact on my life that I would regret it if I did not share his presentation with others.
Imagine waking up every morning full of energy and loving what you see in the mirror…
Imagine enjoying the foods you love: pasta, wine, or even a dessert — completely guilt-free…
And imagine feeling good and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…
All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing rituals ever discovered.
If you’re a woman who has struggled with weight loss, you owe it to yourself to watch Adrian’s presentation and finally have the solution you need to lose weight and take full control of your life once and for all.
The consequences would have been disastrous had I not have stumbled across Adrian’s discovery.
I would never be living the life of my dreams right now.
And I would have continued to gain more weight and be inundated with a whole set of chronic diseases including heart-attacks, diabetes and chronic joint pains.
I really hope it has the same impact on you as it did on me. Because the information you’re about to learn has literally saved my life.
