Down Another 3.5 Pounds! Yeah!

cropped-127228-20160329-e1459257295890-1.jpgI’m feeling pretty ecstatic today. I just weighed myself and I have dropped another 3.5 pounds. And it feels great.

I have a few other things that I want to mention for anyone who is thinking about doing a high fat, low carb diet.

One is a bit of a vent. And that is when people ask me what I’m doing to loose weight and then they want to criticize me when I tell them that I’m doing. I know that I should have a thicker skin and not take it personally.

The world has drilled into peoples heads that calorie counting and low fat is the way to lose weight. They believe what they are told, even though most people are over weight or obese because of eating this way.

I get it.

I was the same way for many years. I mean eating more fat to lose weight went totally against what I did for years.

But now I know that eating more fat, makes me skinny! Yes, it does!

Yesterday I was talking to a friend who commented on how thin I was getting. She said that she could hardly believe how good I looked. She asked me what I was doing.

I told her I was doing a low carb high fat diet. And she said that her doctor told her that the low carb isn’t healthy. So she eats low fat because that is the healthy way to do it.

I wanted to say to her, “and how is that working for you?”. But I didn’t because I know it isn’t her fought. I mean we all want to do what our doctors say.

But what if the doctors have is all wrong?

I simply told her that I would never eat low fat again because I don’t want to eat products that have had sugar and often times other chemicals added to their products.

I feel like in many cases doctors prefer to just write out a prescription rather than help people fix the problem.

I would rather just give my body what it needs and let it heal from all the crap I fed it over the years.

I prefer to eat real food, no processed or packaged food. I eat meat, cheese, vegetables that grow above the ground (avoiding root vegetables and starchy veggies), nuts, olives and berries. In other words.

I eat real food.

I love seeing the scale numbers go down. I feel so inspired to help others do the same.

If you are thinking about trying a high fat low carb diet, then understand that this is very healthy. You will feel great and the pounds will come off.

Why I Love Eating Fat and Losing Weight

Eating Fat and Losing Weight!

Eating more fat and losing weight is the easiest thing I have ever done when it comes to dieting. I seem to just be losing weight without trying. Okay, I need to be aware of what I eat, but I really don’t feel hungry and I don’t have cravings.

 

Eating Fat and Losing Weight

It seems like the more fat I eat, the more satisfied my body is and I don’t crave all the things I used to crave. And as a bonus I feel great. I also feel better over all. I sleep soundly and wake up rested. My joint pain is gone.

Many years ago, I had heard about the Atkins diet, which was very similar. I knew it was about eating more protein and less carbs. And I know many people who I knew got great results.

But  the thing that I didn’t get then, that I understand now is that FAT is is the key! This was mind blowing for me. Most of my life I was programmed to believe that fat was bad. So I kept eating low fat or no fat items. I had it all wrong. And that is why I was not losing weight. I was actually gaining.

Now I eat as much fat as I want with no worries.

Down 16 Pounds! Woo Hoo!

Today is day 60 of eating high fat low carbs and I’m excited to tell you that I have dropped 16 pounds. That’s 2 lbs a week. I’m so proud of myself.

The really exciting thing is that I feel better than ever and I love the food I eat. I will be able to continue this for a long time. I remember when I first learned about people eating low carbs as a lifestyle and thinking that I could never do it for the rest of my life. Wouldn’t I miss the sweets?

Honestly, now 60 days later I don’t want sugar. I am headache free, have more energy than I did in my 20’s and I am healthy. I don’t think I will go back to eating unhealthy anytime soon.

You see, I no longer look at eating as just something to do. Now I look at it as nourishment. My job is to take care of this body that God gave me. By taking care of it, I get to live longer and have a better quality of life with my family. And that is awesome!
