The best thing I think a person can do is to avoid starches and any other form of carbohydrates which all turn into sugar in the body, and are then
subsequently stored as fat. Starches are mostly things like grains (wheat, rice, oats, legume beans, etc.), and potatoes. They convert into sugar in
the body, and any excess sugar is stored as fat.
What I present to you here may sound bad for you, but look at the recent studies that show that the medical establishment was all wrong about
cholesterol. I believe that sugars are the main contributors to the hardening of the arteries (which leads to heart disease).
The best thing anyone can do to avoid diabetes and lose weight is to avoid sugar in all of its forms. There is plenty of propaganda out there that
says that "natural sugars" and sources of complex carbohydrates (grains) are "ok". I don't believe that myself. All forms of fruit contain
fructose, which is sugar. All grains have carbohydrates which are converted into sugar inside the body.
There has been plenty of propaganda that your body needs sugars/carbohydrates to make energy (they say). I think the biggest thing would be to try
preparing meals with meat, if you can eat it-along with vegetables. If you eat lots of veggies and meat, you will still get full, but you will lose
weight very rapidly.
An example would be broccoli with cheese melted over the top. A lot of people don't like that, so there are other things you could try. Mexican
fajitas without ANY corn or flour tortillas or rice are a good example. Just chop up some beef, get some natural taco seasoning without sugar added,
chop some onions and bell peppers, and spicy peppers if you can take it. Simmer it in a pan, and have a nice dollop of cream cheese on top for flavor.
There has been a ton of propaganda that fat in food makes people "fat". It's a lie. The key to it all is to avoid the sugar. If you need flavored
drinks, just drinks that have stevia as a sweetener, instead of sugars. Avoid "diet" pops with aspartame, as there have been studies that show that
aspartame MAY cause weight gain. Avoid high fructose corn syrup at all cost (regular soda, fruit punch, etc.).
The nice thing about low carbohydrate meals is that you can prepare them at home, and microwave them when you're at work for a quick meal on the go.
You may notice that the first few days you get hungrier than normal, but over time your stomach will begin to shrink up as you are saying.
Another thing that I would recommend for weight loss is a product that is made in the USA. There is this tea called Dr. Miller's Holy Tea. It has
herbs in it that work as a POWERFUL natural laxative, and make the intestines flush the hardened stuff that builds up inside them. I use the product
myself every day, and it has made a huge difference. The downside to it is that it is kind of expensive, but 2 teabags makes a full 3.78 liters
(gallon), and it tastes great. I don't drink more than 2 glasses of it a day, as it can make a person "run" to the bathroom with an overpowering
laxative effect. I don't know how easy it will be for you to get the tea in the UK, but I would suggest that you try the low carb diet for at least 2
weeks and watch the extra weight melt away. Over time, your body will get used to not having all the sugars, and you will feel better and better. You
will also not to eat as large of portions to feel satiated.
A good diet to try that meets most of the requirements I mentioned above is the Atkins diet. Remember, you will probably have to eat more often, but
in smaller portions.
I think that in the morning, the reason that you may not feel hungry for many hours is because you may be having a "delayed stomach emptying
effect". I used to eat large meals and a large snack before bed, and then I wouldn't want to eat until 3 PM to 6 PM the next day. You will notice
with more frequent and smaller portions, that you WILL be hungry in the morning. Try to divide the portions you eat into 6 small meals, and 1-2 small
snacks if you get hungry between those. Adjust as you feel necessary, and within two weeks you could lose up to 14 pounds. If you continue, you will
be at 112 pounds after a month.
Gradually, you can add small bits of fruit and other things that have sweetness, but if the weight starts to come back just remember to go back to
eating as little starches and carbohydrates as possible.
I am speaking from experience here, and I know this method I describe works VERY well. Just try it for 2 weeks (with or without the tea), and I'm
sure that it will make a difference. Also, be careful with salad dressings (even the ones that don't taste sweet). Almost all of them have sugars and
other bad ingredients added to them. If you have to have salad dressings, just look up recipes and make your own-without all the sugar and other bad
It does take some thinking ahead and some work to maintain this program, but you will notice the results very rapidly. If you need further
verification, just look up on the web 'sugars convert to fat'. It is well-known that excess sugar stores in the body as fat. Best wishes to you, and
please keep us updated!
