Now why would I even say “mostly”? 

Because depending on your personal metabolism, and the kind of alcohol, and - the quantity of alcohol you drink, it could be “maybe”.  But do understand this – that maybe will either vastly slow down the rate of your fat-burning weight loss, or - stop it altogether.

At this time of year lots of people are exploring different types of diet programs. The Ideal Protein method we employ at BonVie Weight Loss & Nutritional Wellness is a medically designed, 4 phase-weight loss program focused on pancreas and blood sugar balance, resulting in rapid and safe fat loss. This protocol spares muscle mass, lowers high blood pressure, high insulin and high cholesterol.

The Ideal Protein protocol is a short coarse of weight loss, moving you quickly and safely through 3 active phases into the 4th maintenance phase. We focus on rapid fat burning for energy, rather than relying on glucose and muscle stores for energy. You never want to burn down muscle on a diet because muscle uses fat for fuel.

Now for a not-so-uplifting post holiday prediction: most people are not going to keep their resolutions all year long. We start out with the best of intentions but the worst of strategies. By the end of January, a third will have broken our resolutions, and by July more than half of us will have lost our way.

Most people fail because we eventually run out of willpower. As it turns out from scientific studies that willpower is a real form of mental energy, powered by glucose in the bloodstream which is used up as you exert self-control.

Do you believe that eating “zero sugar” or “sugar free” foods (like diet soda) will not make you get fat, or even that sugar-free will help you lose weight? Sorry to say, that belief is nothing more than a diet myth.

I’m here to tell you the truth about artificial sweeteners.

Stress can really be ramped up during the holiday season, and even without this “happiest time of the year”,  it is a part of our everyday lives . Whether you are a stressed out student cramming for final exams, an entrepreneur, stay at home mom, or CEO of a corporate company, we all experience tension and pressure to get everything done in an all-too-short day.

The holidays are festive and full of rich foods, parties and special libations for the holidays, all of which can wreak havoc on your waist line. And who wants to start off 2107 with more girth than you had this previous year?

Weight gain over the holidays is not obligatory! Follow these easy steps and keep your pre-holiday figure just the same.
Eat a variety of foods to get all the nutrients  you need but be wary of overconsumption of carbohydrates and excessive calories.
