Hello everyone! Today is the end of Day 5 and I feel great! To date I have lost 5 pounds and I am continuing to eat healthy as the NutriMost plan guides me to do, and in addition to taking my supplements things are working out fine! A key fact I may have left out, for this program to be effective, in addition to eating healthy, I must take a mineral regimen that works with my body, giving me the minerals my body is without. This helps with the weight loss because it is adjusting my body to a state of normalcy -which my body has lacked for many years.
As I hinted above I stepped on the scale this morning and to my disbelief I have lost 5 pounds! So in four days of proper eating I have shed 5 pounds, which is phenomenal! I still have kept the cravings (although not too many to concern myself with) at bay, eating a healthy fruit when I feel hungry. But truthfully I have not been receiving hunger pains, which I find remarkable! If I eat a fruit outside my lunch or dinner, I just do not eat a fruit for my next meal, which the program allows me to do.
I have still been maintaining 500+ calories per day, which keeps me burning fat. Any less calories would hinder the fat burn, and any outrageous calories such as Hardee’s for example, would DEFINITELY keep me from burning any fat.
I have noticed that I am still consuming very little insulin. Mainly I have been properly dosing myself with long-acting insulin which keeps my blood sugars regulated throughout the day. My short-acting insulin I have only dosed myself with for a high blood sugar today. Short-acting insulin is used when I eat a meal; I will take short-acting for the amount of food that I eat. Although with the proper way of eating and new lifestyle changes I have only had to dose myself very little at most. All of this is under the instruction of my PCP, so please to the other diabetics out there, DON’T TRY TO WING IT!
Day 3 went well, losing 1 pound from the day before, while consuming a total of 542 calories. I ate healthy foods such as egg whites with tomato slices; grilled chicken with asparagus and blueberries; apples; and an orange to treat a low blood sugar.
Day 4 was also fantastic, losing 2 more pounds than the day before! My total number of calories for the day were 458, which is lower then what they should be. That was attributed a light dinner and a mental note made for Day 5. Overall I did not feel hungry and we enjoyed cooking healthier versions of recipes, while at the same time enjoying the better quality and taste of what we ate. As usual I have continued my supplements as directed.
Day 5 has been great! I have lost yet another 2.2 pounds and I have noticed that my jeans feel a tad bit loose! I will see if I can keep that up ha ha! My total calorie intake today is 527, and it does not even feel like it. I find myself coming up with ideas of things to eat because I do not feel hungry.
I am hoping that Day 6 will continue with the weight loss trend, and I will lose a few more pounds by tomorrow morning. As the old television shows proclaim, “Tune in next week for more to come!” But seriously though I am trying to group all my post to within two to three days per posting.
I do have to share the conversation my NutriMost mentor and I had today and it really stuck. NutriMost is a more healthy step then weight loss surgery. It is better for you without the risks. While investing in NutriMost may be a little costly at first, it saves you in the long run between food, medical supplies co-pays, doctor visits and co-pays, and the ever rising cost of healthcare, and keep ourselves alive.
Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me and kept pushing me to achieve my goals! I have been watching myself become healthier while losing pounds, and it is amazing to see and feel the transformation!
