Good Housekeeping has Dr. Oz on the front cover and of course touts that you can lose 10 pounds in 4 weeks.
He has a good plan and flavorful eating Mediterrean style.
Here are the rules that I found most helpful-
Rule #1- Renew your vows daily- I do it once a week and needed to step it up by doing it daily.
"I am going to follow my plan for the next 24 hours."
Rule #2- Do something completely Different Everyday- it helps shake up your old habits and patterns of emotional eating. Being mindful is the key.
Rule #3- Set your kitchen on automatic- arrange your kitchen and pantry so the only choices are the good ones!
Rule #4- Keep your belly full- eat smaller meals throughout the day to boost your metabolism and keep you from binging because you waited too long to eat.
Rule #5- Extend the Burn- drink water at every meal since a German study has shown that 17 oz will increase the calorie blasting 24%. Drinking green tea will also get rid of the body fat.
Rule #6- Check out your portions- I have to do this all the time. I am getting better, but better to check then not to.
Rule#7- Chill out- deal with the stress in your life! Take care of you!
Rule#8- Get enough sleep- 7-8 hours is what you need. Studies show that obesity and diabetes are associated with long term sleep deprivation.
Rule #9- When you blow it, start again- immediately start again. Learn from your mistakes and move forward.
Have a great week!
YOU CAN DO IT!
JUST KEEP AT IT!
NEVER GIVE UP!
