Contrary to popular belief, potatoes are a great food for helping you lose weight. It’s what we put on top of our potatoes – butter, cheese, and bacon bits – that turn them into waistline-busting foods.
I prefer to get my carbs from vegetables, sweet potatoes, and fruit. Why is that? These foods are naturally occurring in the wild and don’t need to be processed in any way (unlike grains) in order to be consumed.
Yes. I have been on weight watchers forever, which is normal eating and how I maintain never getting over 25 more than I’d like. Check out their site or email me for meal plan ideas. It is truly s lifestyle change and teaches you healthy eating. Good luck!
Working light-to-moderate weight training into an exercise program that already includes aerobic activity (walking, jogging, cycling) adds lean muscle mass. Calories are energy that is stored in the form of fat. Muscle is the body’s engine. So the more muscle you have, the more calories you use each day, which contributes to fat loss.
If you’re really tired, don’t work out hard that day, and go to sleep early. If you’re not hungry, don’t eat. If you’re done eating and there’s still food on your plate, push the plate away. If you feel weak, lethargic, have achy joints, headaches, feel unmotivated, anxious, depressed, or your athletic performance is waning, those are all signs of overtraining. The cure for overtraining is to stop training so much! 🙂
I am just starting Paleo. I have Reheumatoid Arthritis. Have had it for 15 years. I am not on any perscription meds as all my doctor wanted me on was the hard meds and I refuse to use them. I been controlling it with diet and over the counter meds for pain. I am trying Paleo because I read about the autoImmune Paleo diet and was very interested to see if it will help me. Would really like to put my RA in remission. I have just started a water aerobics class to get my exercise and help me with pain. I will also be riding my stationary bike twice a week along with the 2 day a week water class. I am not a big meat eater, but I love veggies and I pretty good at making simple meals (my favorite). Thank you Chris for all of your information. The best yet. I look forward to be successful with Paleo.
There are many different ways to increase your movement throughout the day, and I outline several of them my article about the dangers of sitting excessively. Getting into the habit of moving throughout the day can not only benefit your weight and promote fat loss, but it can also improve your overall health and reduce your risk for chronic disease.
By the numbers, you are not overweight. Are you sure your goals are realistic? Are you butt and thighs really a “problem”? I would take another look at your goals and really ask yourself is weight loss is the answer.
Intechra Health also provides many studies proving the safety of each ingredient. You can easily find them on its site, and some of the ingredients are even considered as most powerful metabolism enhancer on the market. With the 100% clinically-research ingredients, Apex-TX5 has its own reputation for its performance.
Congrats to you for being lean and fit. If your diet works for you, then stick with it! But for people like me (and I’m finding many many people with the same issues as me, we just CAN’T eat the breads, the grains, and other foods that mimic the gluten response.
