What I think about Weight Watchers….


I’m nearing the home stretch of the Fast Metabolism Diet as I’m in the fourth and final week, but I’m not sure where I go from here.  The jury is still out on this this diet because it’s said to take 28 days to repair the metabolism but I won’t know how effective it is until I go back to real life eating. This has caused me to think of all the diets that I’ve tried before and their effectiveness. Today I want to talk about Weight Watchers.

Emotional eating at its finest caught me tipping the scale close to 200 pounds back in 2000. Isn’t it funny how you get so used to looking at yourself that you don’t notice any change. I was skinny from my point of view, trick mirror or not, I just didn’t pay much attention. Subconsciously you know, but your mind can act to…

Fast Metabolism Diet-Week Three


As I near the end of week three on the Fast Metabolism Diet by Hayle Pomroy, I can’t help but note a significant difference in the way my body feels. Not only am I 6 lbs. lighter but I feel energetic and confident. I don’t feel tempted or controlled by food any longer and Phase 2 no longer leaves me isolated and depressed. Phase 2 is protein and vegetables only, and because I am not a meat eater it makes it extremely difficult. After the second week of Phase 2 I was ready to abandon this diet all together. I have downed more salmon, egg whites, and tuna than I thought humanly possible. However, I found a plant based protein this past weekend that rocks and actually made this week a breeze for me. I am so glad that I didn’t bail. This week I’ve started my mornings off with…

So tell me what you really think about home video workouts: ChaLEAN EXtreme? Part III


I bet by now you guys think I’m crazy and maybe a bit confused because I’ve tried so many different Beachbody workouts and counting. Let me start by saying that I am always looking for something new and different as I am easily bored. I would chalk that up to my self-diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder. I am not receiving kickbacks from Beachbody. This is just a forum for my honest opinion about the workouts that I’ve tried.  My confession: I used to sell Beachbody products. It wasn’t a long stint or anything, quite the contrary. It will probably go down on my wall of shame as something that I wasn’t particularly good at: Selling fitness products.  However, it gave me a platform and an excuse to try all their different products.

So I was up again watching late night infomercials and scanning my Beachbody training guide when I came…

Week 1- Fast Metabolism Diet


On, Monday, March 3, I started the Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy.  My beginning weight was 159. So far I’ve completed 4 full days. The first 2 days was Phase I, where you can eat lots of good carbs, veggies and proteins.  If you are a fruit lover then you will be in diet heaven. I’m not big on fruit but the natural sugars were much appreciated. I never realized how good apples were especially those Honey Crips.  On Wednesday, I started Phase 2. Phase 2 is heavy on proteins and vegetables only. I am a vegetarian who only eats certain types of seafood so loading up on protein was extremely hard for me.  In a moment of weakness I felt like quitting. Those were the hardest 2 days of my life. I ate lots of tuna and salmon. I hit Earthfare and purchased some soy nuggets but later…
