This has been quite a lazy week for me.
Our Christmas decorations are still up…
Laundry overflows from the baskets…
and the floor is covered in a sprinkle of hair and food crumbs.
And yet – this week has been incredibly successful! I’m finally under 220 – and I’m almost at 50 pounds lost!
What did I do differently this week? I didn’t buy an expensive product that changed my life, that’s for sure.
Basically, I realized that I’m not eating enough vegetables or drinking enough water, and both are necessary to signal to my body that it’s OK to burn stored fat.
And it isn’t as hard as many people think. I didn’t buy organic produce at the farmer’s market and eat it raw. That would be super hard, and like I said earlier, I had a very lazy week.
Here’s what I did: I bought frozen vegetables at the supermarket and microwaved them with a little butter. That, and I drank several glasses of water throughout the day.
Seriously! That’s all it took to push my body into fat-burning mode!
For the rest of the day, I ate my regular diet of delicious meat, fruit, vegetables, and salad with dressing, and continued to avoid bread, rice, or anything with flour or sugar. But the extra-large serving of vegetables I’ve had the past few mornings has given my body a plethora of nutrients, feeding my cells without raising my blood sugar!
How often do you eat vegetables? Are there some easy ways you can incorporate more vegetables into your diet?
