Weight Control- Part 1

I received an e-mail question from a reader who says that she has come very close to her weight loss goals, but is worried that she won’t KEEP it off.

First, I say CONGRADULATIONS!  You balanced workout, and healthy eating through reducing or removing processed foods from your diet (clean eating), and are basking in your success.  Now, how do you keep from yo-yoing back to where you came from?  Your brain is always trying to convince you to eat.  Don’t be confused.

1-Make sure you’re drinking enough water.  Thirst is often misinterpreting as hunger. 

2- Keep exercising regularly.  There is a reason that exercise played a 50% role in GETTING the weight off.  Now, at least 30 minutes per day, most days of the week will help KEEP the weight off (plus, give you energy and boost your mood).

Tomorrow, we will finish the list and work together to keep on track with the progress we are making in our bodies.

*Here is a recipe that came from the Beachbody recipe book.  My kids loved it and it took 8 minutes to make.  YUM

Chocolate Crispies:

3 cups crispy brown rice cereal

½ cup almond butter

¾ cup brown rice syrup or honey

½ cup dark chocolate chips (non-dairy)

Nonstick vegetables oil cooking spray

Coat a 9X9 square baking pan with nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray.

Place almond butter, brown rice syrup and chocolate chips in large saucepan over medium heat.  Cook 4 minutes, stir constantly, or until ingredients are melted together.

Remove from heat, and stir in cereal.  Press mixture into baking and cool 15 minutes.

Dip a sharp knife in hot water, and slice evenly into 16 squares (16 servings)
