Have you wondered how alcohol is metabolized, and how that affects your ability to lose weight?
Alcohol is a big issue when it comes to weight loss and for more reasons than you think. Yes it adds extra calories to your diet, but alcohol also stimulates you to eat more food, and alters the normal digestive process. Not only are the extra calories an issue, but the changes in food breakdown turns those extra calories into unwanted body fat.
When it comes to weight loss and how our clothes fit, most of us are concerned with belly fat – you know, that “muffin top”, “beer belly”, or “jelly belly”.
You know by now that what we eat and drink, how much we eat, and how often we eat, are the primary factors in determining fat loss and fat gain, but exercise does matter.
But when we think of exercise it’s most often aerobic exercise that we have in mind.
Did you know that your weight loss will be more successful if you do anaerobic exercise ( Interval training ) rather than aerobic exercise?
Aerobic exercise is when you exercise at a moderate rate for a sustained period of time (like jogging, cardio machines, running, cross country skiing and spinning). And Aerobic exercise has little effect on visceral fat.
What I have learned is all the other positive effects my new regimen has had on my life: I’m delighted to sift through garment bags of old favorite clothes that I can now wear again.
This is the first diet that has given me a feeling of success. I love when I feel like I am on a good routine and can see my progress on a weekly basis.
When Sharon asked me how much weight I wanted to lose, I thought, oh my gosh, if I could just lose 15 pounds. Nowhere in my imagination did I ever think I could lose the 50 pounds that has followed me around for 20 years.
I'm 31 years old and I have been struggling with my weight all my life. I have tried so many diets, but the sustained weight loss that I've experienced with BonVie.
I have finally found a program that works in the real world! The Ideal Program fits with my busy lifestyle and is highly effective.
I am a busy person, and travel frequently, so knowing exactly what to eat each day to reach my goals made the program easy to stick with. I really enjoyed the ease and simplicity of the program, and the packaged food was good.
