Over time many people have suggested lite n easy as a tool to help lose weight. Lite n easy can make a difference they said.
Of course as I know everything I rejected that out of hand.
Changed my Mind
I cant possibly admit that I was wrong but I have changed my mind Well recently I have had a change of heart! This has been brought about by frustration as my weight loss seemed to have been stalled, I was stuck at 124.5 kg. After watching my 600lb life on TV I realised that many of those people in that show were in denial about what they actually ate. The Doctor would give them a detailed diet sheet. And at first they stuck to it and they lost weight but then they either stopped losing or gained and the reality of that is that they had started breaking away from the diet. “Just a few slices of Pizza” or “I sort of stuck to the diet in the main” . The pattern was always the same DENIAL !
I had a good look at my food intake
So I had a good look at my food intake and sure enough Calorie Creep had Struck Again ! and I was having weight maintenance calories not weight loss calories.
It was time to try something different so I have started using Lite N Easy and wow its made a difference. After 10 days I have dropped at least 2kg and its simple to follow. I have found Lite N Easy food to be at a very acceptable standard for taste and quality and so far have not come across a meal that I would not re order.
I have revised my daily calories target back to Linda’s magic number and reset to 1500 calories per day.
Lite n Easy is Easy
Preparing Lite N Easy is easy. A dinner meal is so simple just pop the corner of the meal tray and microwave for 8 minutes. Each meal comes with a generous serving of vegetables and is portion controlled.
Best of all each item states the exact number of calories making calorie control even easier.
Sticking to your plan is the key to success in your weight loss journey so whilst comparing your weight loss to an object such as 2kg equals a 2 litre bottle of milk will no doubt help there are other tactics you can use to satisfy your mind and stay motivated by the actual weight loss record.
One such method is to record your numbers using British Imperial measurements. So in stead of recording your weight loss in kilos you switch to imperial weight measurement.
So 0.2 kg weight loss equals 7 ounces or half a kilo 17.6 ounces
So in stead of saying I have only lost .2 of a kilo you can say I have lost 7 ounces . The higher number may satisfy your mental attitude and give you a better sense of achievement and satisfaction!
You need to use every possible trick or method to stay on track and even if you stray off the path get back on and continue. Remember there are no magic pills or potent s, no magic systems you buy from TV or magazine advertising Just keep on eating less calories than you burn and you will lose weight. Its guaranteed and it will cost you nothing!
Most seriously over weight people have a fair amount of weight to lose. In my own case when I started out I needed to lose 63 kg. Often when we seem to work so hard at it we just lose a little bit of weight and if we do that often enough and continue on a downward trend that’s all great. But what is a little bit of weight ? Recently I said to my wife I have just lost a little this round about 2kg over 10 days. I mean when you need to lose a large amount 2 kg can seem to be a small result. BUT I suggest this for everyone suffering the same mental feeling. Get a weight substitute and see what it looks like ? A 2kg bag of flour is a fair size but I like a 2litre bottle of milk,It weighs around 2kg and when you pick it up and feel it, have a good look at it . 2kg will seem to be much much more than “just a little Bit of Weight ‘ Just feel the weight and volume of the 2kg milk and feel satisfied, A feeling of achievement will spur you on, you will continue your weight loss journey with more motivation.
The only positive I can offer about my on and off again weight loss journey is that over the time I have been doing this the weight I have lost has stayed off. By that I don’t mean I have not gained a few kilos here and there but over all I have kept moving in a down wards direction. Got some inspiration by watching the TV show My 600lb Life and seeing the excuses many of the people featured offered for not losing weight and not sticking to the program. When I am completely honest about it the only difference is the size of the weight loss needed the excuses I have used are the same. I know that if I eat 1500- 1800 calories a day I will lose weight steadily. 1800-2200 I will maintain and anything over I will gain. I can eat quite well on 1500-1800 a day. It just needs me to evaluate which are best filling calories. For example a 28gram packet of Red Rock Deli Chips = 138 Calories but a 200gram Steamed/Boiled potato with skin on is 134 Calories. Its No contest really. I know what to do I just need to do it.
I started at 153kg and I am now down to 125kg thats a difference of 28kg which has been removed from my body. However it has taken me 3 years when it should have been no more than one year. I will try harder to stick to the plan as I still have 35kg to go
Many weight loss companies offer you all sorts of weight loss if you just give them your credit card details so they can steal your hard earned money. I have been struggling with my weight for many years and during that time I have investigated and studied hundreds of so called guaranteed weight loss schemes and I think I have now found the solution. Please note I am not charging for this valuable information! Its absolutely FREE. ( but it would be good if you show your appreciation by checking out some of the google advertisements shown on my site.
First before embarking on any weight loss program or changing your eating and exercise habits its best to check with your doctor ! STEP 1
Sign up to www.calorieking.com.au and use the tools to establish your BMI and the amount of weight you should lose. You can also calculate how many calories you should be eating each day. In my case it said 2000 calories per day but I have chosen to eat 1700 calories per day to increase the rate of loss. Calorie King also has a great diary tool in which you can check the calories of any food. Best of All Its FREE! STEP2 Fasting !! Adopt a 16-8 fasting routine. In my case I fast from 6pm each day until 10am next day. I eat all my calories in an 8 hour window and only consume fluids outside that time frame. There are many health benefits to intermittent fasting as well as weight loss and you can check those out using Doctor Google. STEP 3
Walk yes walk simply walk every day ! In my case because my legs dont work properly I cant walk far but I started out at walking 100 paces out and 100 paces back and I am now up to 800 paces out and 800 back. That is just a 1 klm walk. Not much for most people but for me its hard work. You don’t have to be an Olympic athlete but you do need to add a little extra exercise in to your daily routine and its easily done by simply parking as far away as practical from the supermarket. or walking to the shops in stead of using the car. Dont try to be a superstar on Day 1 just gently increase your walking over time.
GUARANTEED WEIGHT LOSS If you follow these steps I guarantee you will lose weight In my case the weight is literally falling off me !
I started this program on Monday 17th July 2017 and to date 9 days later I have lost an incredible 2.4 kg I am now at the lowest weight I have been for past 7 years. 36 kg to go !!
Since I started trying to lose weight at the start I was weighing in at 153.5 kg . I have lost 26.9 kg but that has taken me 5 years.
5 years of up and down but with a downward trend ending with a weight loss so far of 26.9 kg. My Motto is never give up I know I need to lose heaps more and I need to do it quicker so I am excited with having found this new routine of low calories and 16 hour fasting each day.
I am starting to feel the benefits and energy is slowly returning !
Very Exciting !!
