How to Lose Weight FAST!
Do I have your attention now?!? I promise it wasn’t a complete ploy to get you to read this.
Sooo many of us want to lose those extra 5 pesky pounds, but what if the solution was something we totally didn’t suspect. Like removing something from the diet that was even considered “healthy” for us to be eating?
The main reason I wanted to write about this was because I wanted to express how important it is to LISTEN to your body! It talks to us all the time, we just have to pay attention. I was ignoring mine for too long and I finally decided to TRY to listen to it and was blown away by what it told me.
Long story short is I LOVVEEE brussel sprouts. Like, legit love them. I have, no joke, been eating them almost every day for the past 2-3 years. Although – I have also noticed that I can tend to be very gassy/bloated sometimes. I refused to accept that it was the brussel sprouts because they are delicious AND they are a vegetable – aka HEALTHY for me, right?!?! Well, although they may be nutritious and healthy, they may not be RIGHT for my body.
So I decided to remove them for just 2-3 days, and it was in a time when I was trying to lean out a little bit, but my weight seemed to be stuck. So surprisingly, after 3 days of no brussel sprouts (and everything else staying the same!) I had dropped 3 pounds almost. Of pure water-weight/bloating I’m pretty sure. I felt better, I looked less puffy, and I was happy I finally listened to my body.
So bottom line is, pay attention to the things you eat and how they make you feel. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t! Try to remove a food, but keep everything else constant (hello science class experiments!) and see how your body feels without it, then try reintroducing it. I bet you will be surprised what you find out J
