Valerie! I’m also insulin resistant and having a hard time losing weight. I, however, am 35 and a stay at home mom with a 7 month old. Losing weight has never been easy for me, but has been worse after having a baby. I’m down to 50g of carbs a day and exercising as much as I can and nothing is happening. I’m getting really frustrated and defeated. It’s been a little over a month for me.
Have you ever supplemented with protein shakes n also become a part of a challenge community to keep you motivated and accountable? I have found these two things to drive me to get in good shape. :)) I think everyone knows that the more we can keep our insulin levels down, the less sugars we store, less fat stored. Have that one day or couple melas that we splurge a bit: just do it before 7pm.
ACV can improve the body’s utilization of iron, a nutrient that acts like fire-starter for fuel. Iron is a key component in substances that carry oxygen to the cells and hold it there. It’s the ability of apple cider vinegar to increase iron utilization and energy consumption in the body that makes it such a supportive food for weight loss.
Can you be gluten intolerant without having celiac disease? Can gluten cause symptoms not related to digestion? A growing body of evidence proves that non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is not only real, but possibly a larger problem than celiac disease.
My daughter had been after me to follow a Paleo eating style for GI issues. After seeing positive results with her change in her eating style, I gave it a try. I lost 12 pounds in 4 months, it was easy. I didn’t change my eating style to lose weight, but it was an added benefit. The problem I have is that I live in a small rural area and to shop for organic foods/health food I have to travel 2 hours. I do the best I can to shop for my eating style in my small community. Soon, the Farmers Market will start up and I also planted a garden. I started with eliminating my morning toast – I have not eaten breads or refined sugars at all, with the exception of an occasional glass of wine. I do not miss the breads or sugars. This will be my lifestyle, my gut feels much better. I just have to learn to portion my food better.
Add Raspberries to your fruit day, they are at the top of the list of high fiber fruits. Each cup of raspberries contains about 8 grams of dietary fiber which is more than 1/3 of your total daily need. Raspberries also contain health promoting nutrients including vitamins C and B-complex, manganese, copper, magnesium and iron. The fiber will made you feel full longer.

Try to increase your baseline activity each day. Try: parking further away, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, standing during commercial breaks, or delivering messages to co-workers in person instead of email.
I use a body fat scale and my body fat went from 20.5% to 24% with my weight increase, as well as my clothes fitting snugger, so I know I gained fat. If you are gaining muscle, be encouraged because that is awesome! Your body will now burn more calories. If you are gaining fat, you may be eating too much fat (from the nuts and seeds, which are packed with calories) or you may be not eating enough, if you are being that restrictive.

I truly believe in the KEEPING IT SIMPLE tip – No need to add excess anything to a dish because healthy foods are delicious on their own. It baffles me when people add brown sugar or syrups to salmon! ALONE that fish is by far the tastiest thing on the planet!
Staying Paleo while traveling is definitely a challenge. My answer to you is simple; you have to plan ahead and bring most your own food with you! Here are some ideas: hard boiled eggs, deli meat and veggie roll ups, fruit, nuts and seeds (these can always be found at airports), jerky, and individual packs of almond butter and coconut butter from Artisana. Bringing along a few squares of 85% dark chocolate can satisfy a craving for something sweet without overdoing the carbs. I hope this helps!
I met an old friend at a networking evening this month. I hardly recognized him – he had lost 45 kg in weight. “Did you have surgery?” I asked, thinking he might have had the sleeve gastrectomy which is the latest “keyhole” surgical procedure for obesity. But no, diet was all he had done.
You already know that a perfect diet doesn’t exist, but many of us still can’t resist the urge to kick ourselves when we indulge, eat too much, or get thrown off course from restrictive diets. The problem: This only makes it more difficult, stressful, and downright impossible to lose weight. So rather than beating yourself up for eating foods you think you shouldn’t, let it go. Treating yourself to about 200 calories worth of deliciousness each day — something that feels indulgent to you — can help you stay on track for the long-haul, so allow yourself to eat, breathe, and indulge. Food should be joyful, not agonizing!
There is a supplement that works to prevent heart attacks and strokes. It is called nattokinase. I have chronic blood coagulation problem. I developed peripheral artery disease over 10 years ago and could barely walk. I walk and move fine. It works and has no side effects.
Too much sugar can make you gain weight and feel lethargic, but it can also strongly affect your mood and wellbeing. It’s not fun to take it out of your diet, and you will have cravings for it. But if you can make it through the first few days, it will get better every day from there.
