Do you weigh yourself? Daily? Once a week? Or just occasionally? We have been brought up (often obsessively) to chase that number on the scale to determine if we have gained weight or have lost weight. Well guess what – your scale May Be Lying!
Without a body composition monitor on your scale, weight alone can be very deceptive. Why? Because unless you are living a low carb - high protein lifestyle like we teach at BonVie Weight Loss & Nutritional Wellness you may well be burning down muscle rather than burning fat, especially if you are just counting calories. If you are eating too many carbs and too little protein, your scale may show a weight loss, but it will be mostly muscle, not fat that you have burned.
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.
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.
