How To Make Skinny Fiber Work For YouBe Realistic About Your Weight Loss Expectations!
The hardest part about losing weight is that we expect immediate gratification. We want to lose an insane amount of weight within a few weeks and without thinking about how long it took to gain the weight. This is just human nature and an understandable desire for people motivated to lose weight quickly! If this is what you expected when ordering Skinny Fiber then you are not completely wrong. Some people do lose weight so quickly that it blows my mind. On the other hand, most people lose gradually and if you read the Skinny Fiber Testimonials that we post on Facebook, then you will understand that weight loss has not been an overnight experience for most of the people that have had success with Skinny Fiber. The product "kicked in" as their body responded to it. Some had to work at losing weight in addition to what the supplement has done for them. They took it faithfully, started drinking more water, started watching the types of drinks and foods they chose to eat and exercised. Since they were not losing weight at all before Skinny Fiber (even though they were trying), they were amazed by the weight loss success with Skinny Fiber and continued to do what it took to lose the weight. On the other hand, some people have made no changes aside from taking Skinny Fiber and drinking water; they patiently waited until the product got their body ready to lose weight and kicked in for them - they lost weight doing nothing different than that. Some people lost weight quickly and some lost slower than the others. They kept their weight loss expectations realistic because watched the videos and understood how the product works!
How Skinny Fiber Works Videos
The videos clearly state that Skinny Fiber helps your body get ready to lose weight first (digestive enzymes) and cleanse; then the other ingredients in Skinny Fiber (glucomannan, cha de bugre, caralluma fimbrita) work to help you eat less, curb cravings, block fat, increase metabolism and feel energetic. If you go into the weight loss challenge with these realistic weight loss expectations and understand how the product works, then you know what to expect. The goal is to keep taking your Skinny Fiber as instructed, drink 1/2 your weight in ounces of water, pay attention to when you are experiencing detox and when you are actually full enough to stop eating, how energy increases, inches lost ... if you understand how Skinny Fiber works and take this all seriously you will be one of the happy ones that lose weight without stressing (which contributes to weight gain and weight loss resistance).
How Will Skinny Fiber Work For Me?I would love to say that you are going to take off 10 pounds each week with Skinny Fiber and that you're going to be your ideal weight by the time you've finished the 90 day challenge, but this is unlikely if you have a lot of weight to lose or other factors that contribute to weight loss resistance. Extreme weight loss is not a guarantee of this product. In fact, extreme weight loss is just not healthy for you. This is why there was such controversy when Rachel Frederickson looked so incredibly thin on the day they announced her as the winner of The Biggest Loser. Everyone questioned whether she was even healthy and said that she looked too skinny after she breaking the extreme weight loss record. That is not how Skinny Fiber works.
Whether taking Skinny Fiber or not, on average, healthy weight loss is 1 to 2 pounds a week.
Yes, some people lose much more than average in their first 3 months (90 day challenge) and some people lose the average amount of weight or less; some people do not lose weight at all because they do not do what they need to do to make Skinny Fiber work for them. It is a cut and dry process just as if you were taking one of those harmful weight loss pills for appetite control EXCEPT for the fact that Skinny Fiber is more than just an appetite suppressant and it is all natural with some benefits instead of health risks. Just as you take Vitamin B, Vitamin B, Omega 3s and so on, you need to take them consistently and Skinny Fiber is a supplement just like these examples, too.
DON'T STOP TAKING SKINNY FIBER ... IT IS WORKING!Skinny Fiber does work and this is why it is so popular (even voted as best weight loss product). Skinny Fiber works immediately for some people and they never change a thing to lose weight with the product. This happened to me in my first 90 day challenge as well as a lot of my customers and other distributors. Other people wait longer for the results depending on their bodies. Health issues, toxins, types of drinks and foods, the amount of food and drinks (calories), stress levels, lack of sleep, improper hydration (amount of water), metabolism / physical activity and inconsistency (not taking the Skinny Fiber each day as instructed) --- these all play a role in why it takes some people longer to lose weight on Skinny Fiber.
If you have health issues like diabetes, autoimmune disorder (like hypothyroidism), candida overgrowth, depression, cushing's syndrome, digestive issues (GERD, IBS, etc), pituitary cancer, musculoskeletal conditions, PCOS, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure and so on ... it may take your body longer to lose weight with Skinny Fiber ... it may not. Regardless, the reality is that these are health issues that cause weight gain and weight loss resistance. You cannot compare yourself to a healthy person taking Skinny Fiber. It may take longer for your body to "get healthy" or you may begin to see results immediately. On the other hand, we have customers that have been able to get healthier and even doctors reducing or taking them off of medications after taking Skinny Fiber. It just depends on your body. In fact, there are nurses and doctors that tell their patients that Skinny Fiber will be good for them.
Food & Drinks
So many people do not change how they eat as the Skinny Fiber cleanses and controls the appetite, but that does not mean to eat as much as you were used to eating before taking Skinny Fiber or that you may not need to make some changes. It also does not mean that they all ate super unhealthy before taking Skinny Fiber either ... maybe they ate kind of healthy before but just too much food. Maybe they always ate fast foods or salads. We do not know what everyone is eating before they get started, but we do know that overeating is a top cause for weight gain and obesity. Overeating is a bad habit like smoking, swearing, biting your nails. Bad habits require intentional motivation / control to stop repeating the habit. Especially for those of us were conditioned to eat this way from childhood by the types of foods we were fed, generous portions we were given and being told to "eat everything on your plate" at each meal. You have to recognize and listen to your body as it says stop. That is one of the hardest things for people to do because they are used to IGNORING that full feeling and think that stuffed is what it should be.
Additionally, unhealthy foods and drinks have become more than just bad habits; they are addictive especially for those who live on processed foods, fast foods, starchy foods, junk foods, pop, commercial juices, etc. These foods have chemicals and sugar under different names. They make you want to eat more and crave unhealthy foods. If you are always eating fatty, starchy, foods over the healthy, fresh and nutritious foods, you are getting the calories and problems that go with these foods. Yes, the enzyme blend in Skinny Fiber will help, but you are still counteracting progress and putting your health at risk. Couple that with a sedentary lifestyle (inactive / no exercise), and it will be hard to lose weight no matter what you do; especially if you are an emotional eater.
Food is such an emotional crutch for some people that they need professional help (they are so used to ignoring what is healthy and that full feeling ... they don't even know when they are full anymore) and when food has become a favorite pastime (eating and drinking is what they do every time they get together they "break bread") with family and friends, this can become even more problematic for weight loss, too. Skinny Fiber helps with detoxing, overeating and feeling good, but some people have to intentionally work on these habits as well. It is the same "you have to want" or "you have to commit" to losing weight that most people have to work through, except they have an extremely hard time sticking to what they need to do. If this is you, admit it and get some help. You can join our weight loss group and / or get professional help.
If you think about how Skinny Fiber works to help with digestion, cleansing and appetite control, it really does not make sense to ignore your body's need for healthy foods and the proper amount of water ESPECIALLY if you are already weight loss resistant. You are putting the toxins right back in for the product to have to work out of your body again and you are counteracting with how the product works to help with your cravings, desire to overeat and feel it's best. Keep this in mind when you are comparing your weight loss with someone else's success!
ONE MORE THING ... EXTREMELY IMPORTANT ... Skipping meals and / or not eating enough calories in a day can KILL your weight loss dreams. This affects your metabolism, caloric intake, energy ... and is another blog post to explain the disadvantages of putting your body in survival mode (or starvation mode) even if you don't do it consistently. Keep this in mind when tracking your progress.
Dehydration / Drinking Water
If you are not a water drinker, then this is an area where you must become incredibly passionate about making change while taking Skinny Fiber. You should make yourself drink 1/2 your weight in ounces of WATER each day. Some of my customers say this is so hard for them. Many think they are drinking enough until they learn how to detect when they are dehydrated and what is best for their bodies. Skinny Fiber and water work hand in hand, so does weight loss and water. The glucomannan sucks it up. Additionally, NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER makes you hungry ... DEHYDRATION makes you hungry. Whether you realize that you are dehydrated or not, there is a connected and is most often the case for those who drink more soda / pop, sugar drinks, commercial juices, artificial sweeteners ... Depending on age and body fat, our bodies are made up of 55% to 78% water which is distributed incredibly throughout body organs, blood, etc. Nothing can satisfy your body's need for hydration like water and the more you drink the better when taking Skinny Fiber. Take your weight and divide it in half ... that is the amount of water you need (ex: 140 pounds / 2 = 70 ounces of water) and could actually drink more since the glucomannan absorbs some of it to make you feel full. There are some awesome mobile apps for tracking water intake or you can do this on your own. Use one of the water apps or track manually on a calendar if you need help tracking how much water you drink each day.
Maybe you have heard about this and ignored it, but STRESS can make you fat, keep you fat and even kill you. Stress makes people overeat (emotional eating as mentioned above). Stress causes people to lose sleep which increases the ghrelin hormone that affects appetite control. This can hurt weight loss and your health in general including the nervous system, as well as creating blood sugar problems, depression and anxiety. Stress increases the production of cortisol in your body which is a stress hormone that makes it hard to lose weight and contributes to body fat in dangerous areas like belly and upper body fat. Therapy, lifestyle / work changes and exercise helps decrease stress. Although exercise is not required for weight loss with Skinny Fiber, it helps for this and other reasons. Consider it for overall health.
Our bodies need sleep. Some say 7 hours and other say 8 hours; children need even more. There is no making sleep up at a later date nor ignoring the fact that you do not function at optimal level when sleep deprived; even if you don't think that you are deficient in sleep. This is one of the hardest points to emphasize to my teen and my customers that suffer from sleep issues. It does catch up to you and often WEIGHT GAIN and WEIGHT LOSS RESISTANCE are a side effect of the lack of sleep. Your body is a machine with timing and depriving it of sleep is hard on the organs and for weight loss.
Nothing is going to work if you don't put your mind to it. You have to be committed and consistent. Make sure to take Skinny Fiber as instructed. So, how do you take Skinny Fiber? The company says to take 2 capsules with 8 glasses of water at least 30 minutes before your 2 largest meals of the day. This is what works for the majority of people and what you should do. Some people need to take their capsules with more water (I actually take mine with 16 ounces and so do many others). Some people take 3 Skinny Fiber twice a day and others take 2 capsules three times a day. Yet, the original instructions are what the the company says is needed; I have had customers tell me they needed a little more for their bodies. Depending on your appetite and health issues, this may be the case for you as well, but start off in the first month taking it as instructed.
NO EXCUSE - JUST TRUTH - WEIGHT LOSS IS INDIVIDUAL
The truth of the matter is that everyone gains and loses weight at different rates depending on calorie intake, calories burned, hydration, sleep and stress levels. Keep all of that in mind when taking Skinny Fiber.
We cannot tell you exactly how the product will work for you because each person loses weight with Skinny Fiber at different rates. Some people start losing immediately and other people just take a bit longer to notice and see changes, but the Skinny Fiber results do come ... If you are more weight loss resistant than others, then patience and often changes are in order (YES, you may have to cut out all soda pop, cakes, candies, fried foods, as well as get off your butt to walk a few times a week. THAT IS WITH ANY WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM!!!). Some people start losing inches before they start to lose weight with Skinny Fiber. This is also common with any type of weight loss; product or when trying to lose weight on your own. Regardless, this is NOT a miracle weight loss pill. There are no miracle weight loss pills. It works if you keep taking it as instructed and pay attention to what indications your body is giving you to show how it is working for you.
For example, one day I ordered a chicken wrap from a restaurant. It was not what I expected at all ... In fact, it looked tiny in comparison to the wraps I was used to. I ate it thinking that I would still be hungry afterwards and was irritated for a minute or two until I realized that I was not really hungry. That the normal sized chicken wrap was really filling and all that I needed at that time. Eating anything else would be MENTAL and not PHYSICAL because I was not "stuffed" as I was used to, but I was satisfied.
It is like that when you take Skinny Fiber especially if you are used to not eating or overeating (even if appears to be normal portions based on how you ate growing up or when you go out to a restaurant). Some people recognize that they are full as soon as the feeling is there; others do not.You might have to learn to recognize when you've had enough to eat and STOP EATING. At that point in time you will understand that you are full and move on with what you need to do next (leave the restaurant, clear the table, clean the dishes, etc). You will realize that you are no longer hungry and the habit of this will come faster because you are feeling fuller faster from the Skinny Fiber. Your doses will will hold you between meals and you need to let it.
Here are some benefits that you are going to notice while taking Skinny Fiber for weight loss and typically within your first 30 days. If you are so used to overeating (not eating healthy portions), unhealthy (diseases, sicknesses, imbalances) or using Skinny Fiber because you have always been resistant to weight loss ... READ & APPLY all of the following to your experience.
Increase in Energy
Loss of Stress
Other people and even I have experienced the following benefits while losing weight with Skinny Fiber...
- Hair and nail growth. In fact, my nails became very strong.
- Blood Pressure lowered.
- Diabetes regulated (some were able to get off of their medications).
- Anti-Inflammation (My leg pain went away).
It is a supplement and weight loss product that helps with appetite control, cleansing, digestion ... it gets your body ready to lose weight, but it is not weight loss in a bottle. You still have to do your part!
I sure hope that all of this has been helpful and motivational for you while learning how to make Skinny Fiber work for you. As you can tell, it is not so much how to make it work as it is how to detect when it working and work on some issues that are exclusive to you. Focus on this opposed to other people's results, measure you body as much as you weight it, and deal with your sleep, stress, hydration, motivation, emotional and food issues if needed.
