My Personal Experience
My personal experience is what prompted me to write about overweight. I live in North Carolina on East Coast. I visit my son every 3 or 4 months who lives on West coast in Northern California - San Francisco Bay area. During each visit I gain between 4 to 8 pounds depending on the length of stay. Mostly because of my break from regular eating schedule and eating outside. Dark beer lunch with bay view. Enjoyment of vacationing comes along with enjoying various foods. So donít feel guilty folks if you enjoy vacation and food. Itís part of happy living and does come with few extra pounds. During last visit from December 20, 06 to January 15, 07 my weight went to 166.2 pounds which was about 8 pounds more and this time during my visit between March 30 to April 10, 07, it was 162.8 pounds which was about 4 pounds more than my usual weight. During my last visit I brought down to my normal weight by increasing protein and decreasing carbohydrate in my diet. My exercise schedule was about the same.
Look below my daily eating habits and other life style that many of us including medical and scientific experts can call ideal. Here it is my typical day:
After getting up in the morning: 1 cup of tea with no sugar but little skim milk
Breakfast: ľ cup Oatmeal cereal
Snack: Apple, Banana or other fruit
Lunch: About one cup Frozen Vegetables microwaved, plus egg-white from boiled egg.
Evening Snack: Mostly Tea only [rarely a bran muffin].
Super: Two whole wheat (or millet) chapattis equivalent to about 2 slices of bread. Vegetable cooked Indian style with spices and little oil.
Drink plenty of water, 2 cups skim milk, no soda, no alcoholic drink (except in a company or at a party).
Exercise: About 5-10 minutes of yoga stretches in the morning. 3-4 miles walk in the evening.
This schedule is quite healthy to lose and maintain weight and have kept me disease free, pain free, and youthful in all aspects so far. It has kept my weight constant for decades, and is a great success story to end here. But there is always something new to learn.
You will wonder what is left to tell that can further reduce weight and stomach after following the above schedule. I was thinking the same till I tried something very simple and very effective.
It is during this April visit when I tested Amazon short technique ďA Simple Solution to Americaís Weight Problem.Ē Although it was only 11 days visit but again I weighed about 4 pounds extra. I reached back in North Carolina middle of night, the next day as usual I weighed myself and it was 162.8 pounds. In the next 7 days I changed nothing in terms of diet or exercise but used this technique. My weight started to come down everyday (even when I was using my usual optimum diet and exercise) except one day that it went from 159.2 to 159.8 pounds. I usually donít drink by myself but happened to have two gatherings where I did took some alcohol. Moderate drinking is OK but not good during weight loss program. My weight on April 17, 07, almost exactly after one-week was 158 pounds. I donít know how much will be fat but my belt went down almost one-notch. I do understand that there will be some water loss. But I donít hesitate to call it a miracle technique for reducing belly and losing weight. The most effective among any method I have tested or written about weight loss.
