(about diet and slimming)
Well, it’s been a long time; I’ve been drifting far too long. The trouble with drifting is that once in that drifting mood, it is difficult to get out of it and restart “living.”
The other problem is that it is also very easy just to sit around, doing nothing and piling on weight around the girth. In the last year I put on an extra stone. I decided enough was enough, I had to get out of the comfy armchair, do something and lose some weight as well. Easier said than done… losing weight that is…
Having got out of the armchair, doing some exercises and trying to eat less was doing absolutely nothing regarding losing weight. So I decided to look around for some help and done a bit of research on weight loss.
There is an information overload on losing weight and dieting. There are hundreds if not thousands of articles and suggested diet routines out there. To say that they are confusing is an understatement. There are contradictory theories about diet and exercise that would confuse even the experts. There are countless supplements, promising to be “the ultimate” in guaranteeing weight loss.
None appealed to me; most of them sounded too weird for words, or too complicated and lacking in convincing scientific research behind it. No doubt that a few of them actually work if you can stay with it, whilst some would benefit certain types of people and not others. Nutrition, digestion and metabolism varies a great deal from person to person and various drugs or supplements work for some people whilst can make others sick.
There really is virtually nothing out there that would suite everyone without exception and could guarantee weight loss.
I spent 42 years as a Dental Practitioner before my retirement and during that time I did study nutrition; after all good nutritional practice it is the basic building block in keeping healthy. “You are what you eat” is not just a glib statement… it is fact.
I know enough about the subject – I thought – to make the right decision in choosing the right diet, supplements and exercises to guarantee painless result. Well, it wasn’t as simple as I thought.
I tried a couple of well supported methods… with miserable result… I will not go into details, as I do not intend to knock any of the methods I tried. As I said before, they do work for some and not for others.
More or less ready to give up, I found something recently, that sounded almost too god to be true. It is a very simple method that seems to make good sense and it also appealed to me as an ex-Dental Practitioner, as it also helps to maintain good oral hygiene. It is a sugarless chewing gum containing an African herbal substance called: Hoodia Gordonii, which is scientifically proven to act on the hypothalamic region of the brain, inducing a signal of “fullness”, thus stopping one feeling hungry. It is a simple but highly effective “trick”, stopping one wanting food. Combined with a sensible nutritious diet of small, but adequate portions of food, it can hardly fail. With reportedly no unwanted side effects whatsoever, it seems to be the ideal way of losing weight that would suit the vast majority of people.
I tried it, with the battle cry of: “What have I got to lose?” The answer soon became self evident… WEIGHT… It certainly worked for me...
I can recommend it, it is simple, pleasant, a no fuss method of loosing those offending bulges… and there is nothing to lose by trying it… except WEIGHT…
