A Time to Eat.....

I recently watched a news documentary where the news anchor was on an assignment to go to a weight management resort in Europe.  It was a posh hotel where “people with money or the rich and powerful” went to get away and lose weight.  The philosophy of this resort was to “eat and be merry”, however they counseled about “eating the right foods at the right time.”  It was interesting because the client’s eyes would light up when they would bring out their food.  They were surprised about that they could have and how the program worked.

I know that this kind of thinking can be incorporated into our own lives.  You don’t have to be rich and check yourself into a luxury resort to know how to eat and manage your weight.  With a few tweaks in your eating schedule and some discipline you can “have your cake and eat it too.”

Here are some suggestions for staying slim and eating the foods you enjoy:

1.       Eat most of your carbohydrates early in the day.  You should eat complex carbs early in your day so that your body has a chance to burn the carbs and calories before bed.

2.      Consume foods high in carbs, sugar and fat in moderation.  Do not forbid yourself, but instead of eating a large portion, eat half or choose a smaller piece of that irresistible dessert.

3.      Make sure your evening meal consists of mostly protein and vegetables because these foods will not turn to fat as easily.

4.      Exercise whenever you can.  If you are constantly moving and staying active then you will be burning calories constantly and you won’t have to worry about limiting them as much.  Working out 3-5 times a week is a plus.

5.       Don't fight stress with food.

Just use common sense when it comes to eating.  Don’t take all the joy out of eating by forbidding certain foods,  make wise choices and enjoy.  If you want to indulge don’t forget the Cheat so that you can eliminate 25% of the calories in your food.  The right supplements can help too.  Choose Xyng and Axion to boost your energy and fill your body with the right vitamins, minerals and nutrients.  Accelerate can assist in boosting your metabolism during exercise.  Then at the end of the day Flush can be used as a gentle, natural way to help your body easily get rid of waste.  Eat right, exercise and get the right nutrients for a healthier, happy you.

My Story

This is my second attempt at blogging.  I love to write, but keeping up on posting timely interesting articles for my blog has been a challenge.  I will be coming up with articles and tips for living a healthier life and keeping your family healthy. 

I have decided to begin with "my story."  I have been using some products that have changed my life for the better.  Although it was hard to write the "personal" aspects of this story I hope that I can help someone else who may be experiencing or struggling with the same things I was.  Xyngular will not miraculously solve every problem or challenge in your life, but it may help in many ways to give you the energy and mindset you need to deal with the many challenges that will arise!

Here it is against my better judgement I am putting it all out there:

I consider myself a writer, but when it comes to writing about me, especially personal subjects that I typically do not share, it is a chore.  I have listened to other people’s inspiring stories about the health and wellness products I have been using and I came to the realization that maybe “my story” could help someone.   As I truly thought about before I started taking these supplements and how I feel now I realized that “my story” is more profound than I thought.

While I stay-at-home with my children I do not have the “luxury” of spending all of my time focused on my children and my house.  I run a construction business with my husband and I am a freelance writer.  I write regularly for a company that has a network of clients who need copywriting work, blog articles, etc.  I consider myself lucky to be able to be home even in my situation.  I love to see others succeed and better their lives, that's why I am sharing my Xyngular experience with the premise that I can inspire someone or give them hope.

I began my 7-day Ignite program at the end of October 2011.  I purchased a trial kit from one of my friends who had been using the products secretly and had lost 30 lbs.  I was at the point in my life where I needed a change because I was close to my “breaking point” both physically and mentally.  Physically I was exhausted, I did not look the way I wanted to and I had some things going on with my body that I did not even want to have a doctor address.  In the summer I had taken a trip with some of my close friends and when I saw the pictures from the trip I just started to cry.  You know the old saying “a pictures says a thousand words” well those words were yelling back at me saying “if you are not happy about your physical appearance then DO SOMETHING!”  So when I saw how fabulous my friend looked I knew I wanted to do what she was doing. 

Addressing the mental part of my Xyngular transformation is a little harder for me to talk about, but if I can help another person who may be struggling it will be worth it.  I would not admit it; not even to myself but before Xyngular I was depressed.  I probably should have been on medication, but I was too stubborn to see a doctor about it.  There were times it got pretty bad.  It is hard for me to even see this in writing and even harder for me to have other’s read this because when it comes to talking about me I am a very private person.  I was not on any medications, but I probably should have been for various things pretty sure my blood pressure was high and from my lack of energy and my body aches and pains, fibromyalgia is a good possibility for me although I have not been formally diagnosed.  I think I was in denial and I did not want to know what was going on with me physically or mentally.

I started my first round of Ignite and I lost 9 lbs during the 7-day period and 7 inches, I was just so excited to see the numbers on the scale actually go down that I could not think of anything else.  I felt like I as finally accomplishing something.  I decided to buy the 30-day kit and I did another round about 2 weeks later and I lost another 7 lbs that round and about 4 more inches.  I have been doing the Ignite program off and on for about 6 months and I have lost a total of 35 lbs. and about 15 inches (measuring my chest, waist, arms, hips and legs).  My physical transformation, in my opinion, is not as noticeable as some of the other people who have used these products, but my mental transformation and attitude about life are very noticeable to me.  The weight change has boosted my confidence a bit, but the mental change has made me more adapt to deal with the challenges that arise.  Don’t get me wrong I still have my down days and I am not constantly happy and cheerful, but I can tell a huge difference in my outlook on life now.  I have had people comment on my physical changes and it is nice when people can tell that you have lost it helps motivate me to keep it up.  When we have challenges things don’t seem as grim when we are making positive changes in our lives.
