Wednesday Starts Week 5 - Wonder What's Next?
Week 1 Recap
- Getting Started and Developing the habit of consistently taking your Skinny Fiber and Drinking Water (it should be AT LEAST 1/2 Your Weight In Water with the understanding that the Glucomannan in Skinny Fiber does suck up water.

Week 2 Recap
- Start cutting sugar out of you body. This means white starches like refined sugar, noodles and bread that turn in to insulin spiking carbs in the body. This also means pop /soda, store bought juices and juice drinks, Starbucks Frappachinos, etc. etc. etc. Stick to low sugar fruits like berries and melons. Start looking at labels and if it says sugar, corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup, then you need to reconsider whether that food is worth your weight loss progress.

Week 3 Recap
- Start Exercising: Walk at least 20 minutes a day or more. If you're further along then do more, but if you struggle to walk at least 20 minutes a day because of your weight, then you really need to commit to this weeks challenge. Start with 5 minutes and work your way up to 20 minutes. This new habit to exercise is something that you will not stop during the 90 day challenge and after.

Week 4 Recap
- Give up bread! This is probably one of the most difficult changes for most people, but bread has no true nutritional value in comparison to real, whole, foods. It has gluten, is hard on the joins and keeps you fat because it is one of the most dangerous insulin spiking foods.

There you have it! Skinny Fiber is just a tool that helps with appetite, metabolism, fat blocking and digestion - it gets your body healthy to lose weight, but learning how to get healthy is key.

Yes, you can take Skinny Fiber for longer and wait for it to eventually happen, or you can gey the ball rolling by making healthy lifestyle changes, too.

This concludes how to lose weight with Skinny Fiber post. Please make sure to either comment below, contact me personally on Facebook or pop into our group with how you're doing so far.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

12 Ways To Manage Stress For Weight Loss, Sleep & Health

12 ways to lose weight, sleep better and be stress free! By Lea Hunt Skinny Fiber Weight Loss Support.

Stress is the #1 enemy of millions of people today. This is due to our hectic lifestyles, as well as the demanding reoccurring responsibilities at work and home. The problem is that many of us don't realize how stressed we are in “normal” daily life. Unfortunately, increased health and wellness issues prove just how much stress affects us as a society. If you are struggling with obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, insomnia, depression or other chronic health issue, these are all directly related to stress. In addition to those specific health problems, stress can also create rifts in personal relationships, cause you to function poorly at your job and bring financial hardships at any point in time. Stress isn't something that you can’t simply ignore – it builds up and does not go away on its own.

Here are 12 ways to manage stress, so that you can start losing weight, sleep better and achieve a healthier way of life! Please SHARE this post to save and give friends!

Connection Between Stress, Sleep & Weight Loss

Sleep and stress go hand in hand for weight loss. If you struggle to get a full 7 to 8 hours of sleep, it is more than likely that stress is causing the sleep issues, and vice versa because lack of sleep causes stress on your body. Both sleep issues and stress affect hormones in your body (cortisol being a major one); both can cause chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and depression. The following suggestions can help you:

Exercise to manage stress.

How to Manage Stress for Weight Loss & Sleep

Exercise Stress Away

Regular exercise has HUGE benefits for reducing stress that affects weight loss, sleep and health. Two of the most popular methods are meditation and yoga. These remedies not only address the mental and emotional symptoms of stress, but can also alleviate the physical manifestations of stress depending on the style of yoga and routines. If you want to completely manage stress, you can take a more aggressive physical stand against it by adding even more activity. Running, Swimming, Tennis, Biking, Basketball or other type of cardiovascular exercise will help ease stress and contribute to better sleep, too.

If you are already walking or doing lighter workouts, though are still experiencing sleep and stress issues, then you may need to increase how much you workout (exercise for an hour instead of 30 minutes) or how often you work out (increase to 5 days a week instead of just 3 days). You will most certainly see improvement for weight loss by exercising more. It also helps to switch up the types of exercise you’re doing (day one = walk or run, day 2 = yoga or weight training, day 3 = cycle or stair climb, etc.). That variety doesn't let the body get too comfortable with any certain form of exercise, thus keeping it a challenge and helping the body manage stress.

Drink More Water

You will notice that I constantly recommend drinking at least 1/2 your weight in ounces of water each day. It is more than a simple case of not feeling thirsty; water and stress go together just like sleep and stress are connected. This is because dehydration causes stress on the body. Water is essential for your brain and other organs to function properly. It can help maintain your heart rate, cortisol level and flushes harmful toxins from your body. Staying hydrated means that you should never feel thirsty and is essential for weight loss, stress reduction and good health in general.

Start Eating Healthier 

Yes, food and stress are connected, too. A healthy diet is less stressful on the body. Some stress
relieving foods include vegetables, fruits, fish, soups, yogurt and herbal products. Some stress increasing foods include caffeinated coffee, tea, cocoa and energy drinks. Additionally, fast food, alcohol, soda / pop, sugar / foods with sugar, dairy, nuts and meats. I am not saying that you have to give up all of those foods, but if you may want to test certain ones through an elimination process if you are dealing with health complications due to stress. Food is another culprit for stress, weight gain and health issues.

Massage Stress Away

I know this may sound crazy, but body massage can also become an important part of distressing and weight loss. Stress causes the muscles in the body to tense up, slowing down blood circulation and leading the way to more serious health complications. You can avoid these problems by getting a massage once a week or once a month, depending on your budget and how much stress you are exposed to in your daily life. Certain massage also detoxes the body. Detoxing is directly related to relieving you of stress and toxins for weight loss, sleep, and mental health.

If your sleep problem does not improve with proper diet, water and exercise, then you should consult with your doctor for help. He or she may recommend something natural like melatonin, chamomile or other natural remedy. There are prescription sleep aids, too. If weight loss does not improve, try Skinny Fiber to increase your dietary fiber, stamina and enzymes.

Learning how to manage anxiety helps you lose weight and remain healthy for longer!
Why You Are Stressed & How To Manage
You're Relationship w/ God | Prayer & Meditation

Unnecessary distance from God can create a tremendous amount of stress in your life. You can avoid this through sincere prayer and taking time to study your bible daily. Most importantly the scriptures are filled with what to do and what not to do when stressed, anxious and unhappy. "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." ~ Philippians 4:6-7 - All we have to do is come to Him. "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30 and so on. Read your bible and open your heart to the Lord; his lessons, love and comfort can help you conquer aything!

Your Clothes Don’t Fit Right

Wear properly fitting clothes. Did you know that many people are stressed out not because of their environment but because of their clothes? Stress can be the offshoot of wearing clothes or shoes that are too tight, thus constricting blood circulation.

Your Purse, Backpack or Case Is Too Heavy

Reduce the contents of your purse, backpack, computer or briefcase. Carrying heavy bags, especially when you have a long commute wherein you have to stand in the subway, for instance, can cause a lot of stress on your body. You'll be amazed at how much better you feel if you get rid of all the unnecessary items from your purse. Your shoulders and back muscles will thank you.

Smoking For Stress Adds More Stress On The Body

Quit smoking! Smoking is bad for the health and causes a multitude of illnesses and diseases. Stress is just one of the many nasty consequences you can avoid if you quit smoking as soon as possible.

Holding In What Bothers You

"Getting it off your chest" is an important quote to remember. Expressing your feelings and concerns is one of the best ways to manage stress. Holding in what bothers you can cause even more physical and mental stress. If you do not have someone that you feel comfortable sharing with or are at fear for stressing others out with your problems, then you can talk with your doctor, find an anonymous hotline, support group or a therapist. They can help you verbalize and release what is bothering you; plus, offer suggestions for how to manage stress better, too. Please do not forget that YOU CAN ALWAYS turn to God in prayer and the scriptures to help deal with stress.

Alone Time (Pray, Enjoy Nature, Read, Bathe, Nap, Movies, Etc.)

Constant interaction with other people can take a toll on you for sure. We all need a little alone time to think, pamper and rest. For some people, exercising or driving provides that time. Some people need different activities to fulfill that need for alone time and to manage stress. For example, leaving the kid(s) with your spouse or a sitter so that you can go to the park to pray, meditate, read, think, etc. Other examples include reading, going to the beach, fishing, playing golf, taking a bubble bath, going to the movies, napping, computer games, etc. There is nothing wrong with taking the time alone to do things that make you happy. It is also a way to manage stress overload.

Recognizing / Admitting What Stresses You & Dealing With It

This is probably the hardest of all. It is pinpointing what is stressing you and dealing with it. I know this seems impossible in some cases, but try to keep an open mind. If driving to and from work stresses you out to the point of physical or anxiety issues, then you either have to find a closer job, move closer to your job or work from home. If dealing with certain people is damaging to your health and wellness, then you need to deal with it. If you can't do it on your own, then relationship therapy can help if the other person is willing to do this with you. On the other hand, sometimes, certain relationships have to go. They are far more toxic than talking, exercise, food, drink or alone time can resolve for you. Whatever or whoever is contributing to making you sick, fat, stressed and / or unhappy ... You have to deal with it because you deserve a better quality of life.
De-Stress To Age Gradually, Sleep Better, Live Longer & Healthy
Some other affects of stress include aging more quickly, chronic muscle pains (back, neck, etc), GERD (gastrointestinal reflux disease), IBS (irritable bowl syndrome), asthma and DYING younger than you should --- STRESS CAN KILL YOU!

The consequences of stress are so vast that I have been motivated to share these 12 ways to manage stress for your weight loss, sleep and health. I hope that you will try your very best to put into action these simple but effective strategies and also realize that there are many other ways to deal with stress like counting, breathing techniques, music, crafts, taking vitamins and magnesium, etc. I have just shared those I know work from experiences.

Can I Do Weight Watchers, Atkins, Paleo or Diet w/ Skinny Fiber?

Skinny Fiber Diet Plan. Can I do Atkins, Weight Watchers or other diet plan while taking Skinny Fiber?

Have you been wondering if you can do any type of diet while taking Skinny Fiber? In short, the answer is YES. You can use Skinny Fiber with Weight Watchers, Atkins (Low Carb), Paleo, South Beach, Mediterranean, Low Fat, Low Calorie or any other diet plan that you choose to do. There is no special diet for Skinny Fiber.

Here are the reasons why:

Skinny Fiber Is A Supplement

Although it was voted one of the top "diet plans" in 2014, Skinny Fiber is a dietary supplement that comes with an optional 90 Day Challenge (weight loss program). I guess together it is considered a total diet plan to customers, but there is no special "diet" involved. The Skinny Fiber product is a supplement like Zinc, B, D, C, CoQ10, Probiotics, Whey or any other  that you take daily. The individual ingredients in Skinny Fiber each have their own health benefits, but in all practicality it is a weight loss supplement with fiber and digestive enzymes.

* The point being that you can take Skinny Fiber just as you do any other supplement and in addition to whatever foods you eat. It helps you feel full, so that you eat less.

Skinny Fiber Helps Control Your Appetite

There are three fibers (Caralluma Fimbrita, Cha De Bugre, Glucomannan) and 7 digestive enzymes in Skinny Fiber.  All 3 of the fibers help with appetite control, but the most popular fiber in Skinny Fiber is glucomannan. You may have heard about it online or seen glucomannan recommended on the Dr Oz show. It is called "Natures Skinny Sponge" because it swells to help create a full feeling. You take 2 capsules twice a day at least 30 minutes before your two largest meals of the day and with 8 to 16 ounces of water. The glucomannan sucks up water to help it swell and make you feel full. It is best to drink 1/2 your weight in ounces of water for that purpose, as well as to properly hydrate and flush toxins from your body. There have been studies on Glucomannan that show other health benefits for those with diabetes and cholesterol issues. You can read about it and the other ingredients on the ON THIS PAGE.

* Skinny Fiber is a weight loss product that you can take with any diet plan you choose; most people just eat what they normally do but less food when the product starts working for them.
Skinny Fiber Is Low Carb, Gluten Free & More
One of the most common questions I get is whether Skinny Fiber is low carb, gluten free, has calories, fillers or caffeine. It is relative to diet, so I am including it here. The answer is YES it is low carb; YES it is gluten free; NO calories, NO fillers or NO harmful ingredients. Some say that Skinny Fiber has no caffeine at all because it is such a SMALL / LOW / TRACE amount that is not considered to have any in it. This is why people with heart disease and high blood pressure have taken Skinny Fiber successfully. if you are unsure, please ask your doctor first before buying.
You Can Take Skinny Fiber w/ Atkins, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Paleo, South Beach, Mediterranean, Low Fat or Low Calorie Diet
I hope this quick post validates why you can take Skinny Fiber with any diet; it does not conflict and can help you get better results while your body is adjusting to a new way of eating; especially if snacking and overeating is an issue for you. Please do not hesitate to Contact Me with any other questions that you might have about taking Skinny Fiber with a certain diet plan.

Special Testimonial - How Detox w/ Skinny Fiber Helped Her

Sharing weight loss testimonials is one of the most rewarding and important part of what we do as a Skinny Fiber Distributors. They help inspire people to want to lose weight, and since staying on track is such a difficult part of weight loss, those personal weight loss stories also help you stay motivated while doing the 90 day challenge. You can find these Skinny Fiber Testimonials on my Facebook page and other social sites, as well as in periodic posts on this blog (the links are below). If you have one to share, please feel free to send them to me.

Special Skinny Fiber Testimonial

How Skinny Fiber Detox helped Lisa with anxiety and weight loss; her results are not typical though wonderful!
I received a special testimonial from Lisa S last week. Her excitement really touched my heart because her first two weeks on Skinny Fiber has resulted in more than just a change in weight or body composition ...

Hers is a story about how detox helped with a certain health issue which is not a typical results testimony.

Plus, she's losing weight, too!

This is what she had to say on 4/14/2015:

Skinny Fiber Results After 2 Weeks - Lisa S

"Hello. I just wanted you to know how much I love my skinny fiber. It makes me feel really good. One thing I that I find so crazy is, that I suffer from really bad anxiety and can never take anything. I started mixing it with applesauce and then drinking a couple glasses of water with it. Now I can just take them with water. Since I have started taking them my anxiety has almost disappeared. I'm not sure how that can be. The only thing I can think is that it helps cleanse your body. Maybe I just had a lot of bad toxins in my body and it helped clean them out. Whatever the reason, I'm a customer for life! If you ever have anyone concerned because of anxiety issues tell them you sold it to someone that has severe anxiety and it changed her life. I couldn't even take anxiety medication because I had anxiety over that! This product is amazing."

So, I asked her what type of other results she was having ...

Have you noticed any of the following?

- Energy
- Weight Loss
- Inches Lost
- Decreased Appetite
- Decreased Cravings
- Tummy Smaller (well, less bloated since it it has just been 2 weeks)

This was Lisa's reply:

"I have noticed all of those things! I never really had an appetite to start with. That was my big problem. I was never hungry. I just always ate to eat. But with skinny fiber it actual helps me control not wanting to just eat for "fun." I have been exercising a lot and drinking lots of water and have gone down a pants size. I haven't weighed myself only due to the fact that that usually hinders my progress. I'm trying to wait a bit. Especially since it's so soon."

She ends by saying:

"Thank you. Thanks for all your help when I first started. I'll be excited to share my future results."

Skinny Fiber Detox & Weight Loss

I'm looking forward to sharing Lisa's weight loss pictures after the 90 day challenge! Congrats to her for keeping in touch during her challenge and doing what she needs to start losing weight. Also, in feeling brave enough to share her experience to help other people. Her results and caring spirit are inspiring.

Easter / Resurrection Day & Reply To Your Messages (Binge Eating)

Happy Easter, Happy Resurrection Day, Skinny Fiber Distributor

Sending you a belated Happy Easter or Resurrection Day as we say in my family. It has been bugging me all week that I did not get this message to you and I apologize for being so late. I took a few days off of work for prayer and reflection last weekend. Plus, our family was together ... Easter is always a time of overwhelming gratitude for the blessing of reborn life!

I hope that your Easter was a day of gratitude, prayer, peace and love!

On another note, I also want to acknowledge that I received your messages about having a hard time staying on track over the holiday break. Thank you for being honest and also feeling comfortable confiding in me.

Reply To Your Messages- Holiday Binge Eating

Please don't feel bad about "slip ups" because they happen to all of us at one time or another. What matters is what you do after the fact ... Will you get back on track quickly or will you continue bad habits until you "burn and crash" again?

I went through the very same thing ...

I managed to stay away from the candy, but turned into a carb addicted HOG when the mashed potatoes hit the table. I knew what was happening when I scooped out that first spoonful and totally ignored the fact that I have not eaten white potatoes in about a year ... Needless to say, I FELT DEFEATED the next day. I had to pull it back together the very next day. I took my Skinny Fiber, drank lots of water, ate low carb and did not touch those leftover potatoes again (smile).

Typically, I would have just shared this in our weight loss support group and moved on, but I want to make sure that I reply to this issue here in case you are not in our group, yet.

If your eating has been off since Easter or throughout the Spring Break weeks or if you have stopped exercising since our last challenge, it is time for you to get back on track. If you are struggling to get yourself back on track. STOP IT!!! You are more than capable of making that choice for yourself. *** Take your Skinny Fiber RIGHT NOW, drink your water, take a walk ... start working on your weight loss and health goals, again. ***

Don't let cheat days turn into a long binge eating cycle! Take your Skinny Fiber, drink 1/2 your weight in water, eat healthy and exercise!

REMEMBER ... None of us are perfect! 

It takes a lot of discipline to live a totally clean and healthy life; with the reality that most of us do as well as we can with staying on track with newly established habits and maintaining weight loss. SLIP UPS and BINGE EATING HAPPEN, but it's never an excuse to give up completely.

One weekend is no big deal in comparison to a month or even a year of being off track again, so please take this post to heart and get yourself back on track with your weight loss goals!!! 

You can add me as a friend at http://www.facebook.com/flwahm so we can chat there and you can ask me to add you to our weight loss support group. We do weekly check ins, stay motivated with new recipes and tips that help!

The alternative is to getting back on track now --- feeling great again --- is to continue GIVING UP on your weight loss and health goals. REMEMBER HOW THAT MAKES YOU FEEL?

DON'T GIVE UP!!!!


Here's To YOUR Success,

Lea

The chemicals in green tea can combat some carcinogens, cause cancerous cells to destroy themselves, and may also reduce the formation of tumorous growths.

A Healthier Heart

Green tea contributes heavily to a healthier heart by reducing LDL cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides, and harmful free radicals. The chemicals in green tea can also reduce inflammation and prevent cell damage related to cardiovascular disease. Drinking tea may also help the body recover more quickly following a heart attack.

A Healthier Brain

Green tea leads to improved blood flow to the brain, which can lower the risk of stroke. Tests have shown a link between green tea consumption and improved memory and problem-solving capacity. Finally, the antioxidants in green tea can potentially block the formation of plaques that can cause Alzheimer's Disease.

Green Tea & Weight Loss

The catechins found in green tea induce and prolong thermogenesis, which in turn results in the body burning more calories each day. Consistent green tea consumption has also been linked to higher natural rates of fat oxidation. And because green tea is calorie-free, substituting a cup of green tea for a can of soda each day would result in an average net weight loss of almost fifteen pounds each year.
What Types Of Green Tea Are Best?
Organic Green Tea is best and is fairly inexpensive in comparison to other organic products. Regardless pf price, it is healthier and as easy on the taste buds as the non-organic GMO brands - most say organic tastes better. When researching which brands, make sure not to buy green tea with additives in it ("natural flavoring", "soy lecithin", "high fructose corn syrup", "aspartame", etc  - NO GOOD).  Loose leaf is best, but there are some bagged and iced tea brands that are safe. Just keep in mind that "natural" does not always mean it's really natural by true by quality health standards..  The key is to make sure the tea you buy has the certified organic symbol or non-gmo guarantee that is for your country or states NON-GMO on the label and no additives.

Here's a link to start you search for NON GMO TEAS  - just remember to check the labels because NON GMO does not always mean pure tea, so check for additives before buying your green tea.

Worried about the caffeine in Green Tea?

* Green tea has 24-45 mg of caffeine VS brewed coffee has 95-200 mg of caffeine

* Decaffeinated coffee has 2 to 12 mg of caffeine

So, green tea has at least 1/2 more caffeine than decaf coffee, but way less than a cup of coffee.

Ask your doctor what he or she recommends if you have high blood pressure.

It's just amazing how one simple drink is so good for your health ... JUST LIKE WATER!!!

All in all, the health benefits associated with drinking green tea more than justify including it in your daily diet. The chemical compounds in green tea have a positive effect on nearly every part of the body, contributing to a longer, healthier, and happier life.

6 Habits That Will Help You Lose Weight & Keep Pounds Off

What to lose weight? Adopt these 6 habits that help with weight loss and healthy lifestyle. Keep it off!

Here's what you know about your weight gain, though maybe don't realize ...

Over the years you developed good and bad habits that are directly connected to your health. Good habits such as bathing, brushing your teeth and other hygiene rituals came with very little resistance as they were EXPECTATIONS of you throughout childhood. The same goes for UNDERSTANDING that vegetables, fruits and other healthy foods were what you should eat as part of a heathy diet, and so on for proper sleep, relationship and behavioral habits. The problem is that CHALLENGES in these areas were carried over to adulthood. NECESSARY expectations were not placed on every health habit as you were developing; maybe because you didn't care care for certain ones (like eating green vegetables or going outside to play) or you had certain issues that prohibited the development of various health habits. Another reason is that some of these healthy habits were not requred of you because your mentor(s) did not find them as important (your mother or father did not like certain foods or drinks, therefore did not serve them) or because YOU CHOSE not to retain the instructed habits over time (distaste, rebellion, laziness, fear, etc.).

This contributes to why you have gained weight and / or become unhealthy!

You have to go back to basics in order to lose weight, strengthen your health and keep the pounds off for good. Yes, Skinny Fiber does help with avoding some of the annoying things about losing weight like toxins that cause resistance and having to to live off shakes or crash diets, but you still have to do your part. Here are some tips for re-establishing good habits that will help you lose weight and keep it off for good!

How To Lose Weight For Good


Drink Water First Thing In The Morning

You might wake up in the morning feeling hungry and wanting breakfast. This is normal since you haven't eaten anything all night, but before you make a big breakfast, make sure you drink a glass or two of water. Drinking water will re-hydrate and make you feel a little less hungry. You're not drinking water in order to skip breakfast, but to give your body what it really needs first. After you drink water you can enjoy a healthy breakfast.


Choosing The Right Diet, Best Foods, Shopping, Etc.

One part of committing to a healthy lifestyle is committing to a eating healthier. As much as I would want to suggest one way of eating over another (low carb, low fat, low calorie, vegan, etc), you have to choose which is best for you, BUT being consistent is the key. You can't switch back and forth; you need to commit to that particular healthy lifestyle change. Buying the right foods and portion control are two good food habits that relate to everyone regardless of the style of eating that works best for our bodies. Learning to eat for nutrition and fuel is one of the keys!

If watching calories and eating low-fat is a better eating habit for your weight loss, then choose low calorie / low fat versions of food when shopping. This does not include all of the packaged foods that say "Low Fat" on them because you want to keep the pre-packaged, processed foods, to a limit as much as you can. Eating a diet high in fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, lean meats, gluten free / sprouted gains are best for you. On the oher hand, there are certain foods you just have to have as not to deny yourself too much and ruin your progress. These should be the "Low Fat" labeled foods you do buy; like low fat string cheese, keifer. certain frozen foods, etc. This is an easy change to make to your diet, but it's important to remember that when you do buy the low-fat versions of anything that you can't eat more than a portion. If you eat double because it's low-fat, you're really not saving yourself any fat and calories.

Same for if you eat low carb or even raw food vegan diets. TOO MUCH meat and cheese (low carb diet) or too many avocados, bnanas and nuts (raw food) can hinder weight loss for sure! Portion control is one of the most important habits to help you lose weight and keep it off; calories involved included.


Calories & Portion Control The Easy Way

Portions, snacks and meals are always going to be a big part of your healthy lifestyle. If you want to continue to eat what you like while losing weight and keeping it off for good, then you better learn not only how to eat propery for your body, but also how to portion food, so that you don't continue to weigh, look and feel like you do right now. Believe it or not, this applies for both bad and healthy foods you eat, too!!! Sometimes, you are in situations where the healthiest options are not available, so knowing what is the right amount of "this" or "that" is really important for weight management.

SKINNY FIBER can help you bypass the complications of portion control by helping you to eat less. Learning to STOP eating is the part you have to focus on with it, but the product helps.

This starts with knowing how to eat for your body, but following specified portions on any packaged foods and also having a better understanding of calories as well as what is considered low fat for basic diets, points for Weight Watchers Diet, carbs for Atkins Diet, which foods don't fit for Paleo, Vegan or Vegetarian Diets, etc., it all goes together.

A general goal of how many calories you want to eat is how much you want to weigh!

Examples:

Want to weigh 130 pounds? Then eat 1300 calories a day. Want to weigh 130 pounds of muscle? Then exercise to build and burn fat, eat the proper diet for you, but make sure to retain at least 1300 calories regardless of all. Want to weight 150 pounds? Then eat 1500 calories a day. Want to be a slender 150 pounds? Exercise to burn the fat and work the muscles, eat lean amd green, ad make sure to retain the 1500 calories.

It sounds like a hassle and in the beginning might be, but once you see the results of portioning you will be happy you got started. Most people eat too much food. When you begin portioning, it will seem like very little food, but the truth is you will get used to it. The result of eating too much at meals is that your stomach stretches out. The good news is it can shrink back to normal size when you stop eating too much. You will begin to feel fuller when you're eating less.

Too much food is too much food regardless of what you eat, BUT too much of certain foods have far few reprocessions than eating CRAP. So, what you eat makes all the difference. You can binge on fresh greens with a veggie based salad dressing in comparison to a salad smothered with vegetable oil dressing, croutons, etc.

What if you're eating Atkins or other low carb diet where calorie counting ar not the norm!

Portion control is very important in these cases and it does not hurt to have a firm understanding of how many calories, too. Too many grams of carbs, too much meat and cheese, can make it hrder to get into or maintain ketosis; also now or later can hider weight loss. Too much meat has it's issues just as too much carbs; keeping glucose in control is important.

So, how what is calories and portion control the easy way?

Food planing helps keep calories and portion control on track. Whether you keep a food scale, calorie charts, follow labels, use a mobile app or online tracking site, special containers that serve to measure food portions for you ... DO IT and continue to until the proper calories and portios become second nature ... Keep up all that you've learned. Make what you can ahead of time and do exactly what you have planned for food each day. In the event that you are traveling, out and about, or unable to follow as closely as when you are in the comfort of your home, apply what you have learned in the social settings and you will be fine; eating lean and green can also help you avoid any confusion.


Drinks & Hydration Needs

Be picky about what you drink ...

While drinking fruit juice might seem like a good idea, it's actually a poor choice. Even 100% fruit juices can contain a lot of sugar, so they aren't something you want to drink often. If you want a glass of orange juice in the morning, make sure you drink a proper size glass. If you drink too much, you'll get too much sugar. If you drink soda, it's important to stop. Your best choice is to drink mostly water as it has no calories and it good for you. If you're bored with just plain water, you can add lemon and lime slices. Green tea is also a great choice. If you're a coffee drinker, make sure that you don't drink too many a day and re-hydrate with water often because caffeine is dehydrating.

Get Moving, Exercise AND Stay Active In Life!

YES, you should exercise NOT MATTER WHAT; even if your diet plan does not require it for weight loss. Exercise is a lifetime responsibility to help your brain, muscles, limbs, etc. As the years progress, the older you get, the more you will wish that you would have done certain things and working out is included. In addition to exercise, staying active in general is key to all. You may have heard an older person say that he or she keeps moving no matter what. If you want to be able to do that later, be the one who runs the errands, does the grunt work, etc., as well as exercise regularly.

Most Important Habit For Weight Loss / Maintenance

It's important to establish healthy lifestyle habits to lose weight and keep it off for good. Everyone eats and drinks, so starting with what and how you eat and drink is the best place to begin. Yet, staying clear of fad diets, friends that sabatoge weight loss, establishing and maintaining healthy habits takes self-motivation. The very last annd most importat weight loss habit is to remain motivated, dedicated and positive. All is possible from within you. Finding that combined drive, retaining it and applying all of these tips provide you with the 6 habits that will help you lose weight and maintain weight loss.
