Ok, went to a health seminar last weekend, and learned something crazy helpful.
I have a really hard time with snacks, not so much with meals. Around 10am and 3pm I feel like I'm starving, but I've fixed that now.
Having straight carbs for breakfast (toast, oatmeal, whatever) sends your blood sugar through the roof. Then it crashes horribly and you have to eat. Then you crash... then eat... They recommended eating just protein (eggs and bacon, cheese or something) for breakfast- try it for 3 days, and see how you feel. I did, and holy crap it's so much better. My body still expects food around 10am, but I can ignore it then eat a good lunch. So by eliminating one snack in the morning (and only having a single snack in the afternoon, because no one should go 7 hours without food, it throws your blood sugar off), I've cut calories and feel loads better mood wise.
The other thing is using the term "releasing weight" rather than "losing weight". The reasoning is that when you lose something, what do you do... you try to find it! Just mentally rearranging what you want to do... you want to get rid of it permanently, not yo-yo. I hadn't been losing much (maybe a half pound a week) but I sh!t you not I'm lost a couple pounds this week just from this and my other lifestyle changes.
I wanted to share and see what you guys think
