I’ve tried, and I really don’t think it works at 57. It only makes me look old because I have to take a nap in the middle of the day… how embarassing. Thank goodness I am not falling asleep at my desk. That would be worse, so how do you stay alert, while working? Remember stress causes hunger. Number 1 eliminate stress. Breathe in for 4 and hold for 7 then exhale through pursed lips for 8 and add some sound. Do this 4 times total, 2X a day. Number 2 eat whole food, nothing processed…yes that means you have to plan ahead. Try to avoid plastic, apparently BPE makes us fat too. Look at the bottom of your plastics avoid #3, #6, and #7. Look for plastic #1, and this is a one time use plastic, so don’t refill it with water, because bacteria and fungi can cause more problems. Energize with protein and vegetables, after a great protein and grain breakfast with a little fruit. When hungry add a grain.. I like clif bars. I have tried all the others, and Fiber Plus will do in a pinch. All the others… well, maybe you have your preferences too. When needing a snack, I like walnuts and almonds with dried blueberries, dried cherries, and dried cranberries, mixed together in a trail mix. Besides, the fruits are necessary. I tried all vegetables and got leg cramps, I tried fruits, and really cleaned out my colon, and started feeling like I was a walking skeleton. So yes, eating a variety of WHOLE food is necessary. A little yogurt works too, I usually eat yogurt for breakfast, or after dinner before bed. Something to tide me over till breakfast. Found my perfect weight, and haven’t had to buy clothes for a few years. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. At least at my last physical in Nov 2011 my blood chemistries were all in normal range. Can’t complain… that’s the goal.

Carbs! Like fruits and vegetables. Introduce more leafy greens, even if you haven’t grown up with them.
