My vice is desserts. I don’t eat a lot of fatty or fried foods but after lunch, before dinner, and after dinner I’m craving cookies, cakes, candy or any combination of the 3. I told myself that enough is enough and the first thing I did was STOP all desserts. I now only eat peppermint or cinnamon Altoids. And keep it to one tin a week or less.
I drink between 36-64 oz. of water a day. If you don’t like plain water try 4-C Totally Light. It is a powder that can be added to water and is found by the KoolAid. You can make it weak if you think it is too strong by making one bottle of the product, keeping it in the fridge and only adding 1/3 of the prepared bottle to a half of the bottle you are drinking.
Step3 Anything that is sugar free should contain sucralose and NOT phenylalanine. Sucralose is a safe sugar derivative and safe for diabetics. Phenylalanine is dangerous to your health and is printed in BOLD on the ingredients list. Any product that is sweetened with Splenda will have the “Splenda Swirl” on the front of the product.
Nutritionists recommend 1-6 grams of cinnamon per day for at least 45 days to see a difference in belly fat. I use Sundown Cinnamon 500 mcg or 1000 mcg 3 times per day, 2 capsules per dose. If you eat applesauce or something conducive to ground cinnamon powder, you can do that as well. And if you have a Dollar Tree in your neighborhood, they offer it a lot less expensive than other stores. It can be found with the spices and seasonings.
Step5 I also use sucralose in my coffee. Wal Mart offers a generic Splenda called “Altern”. I buy 200 individual packets for about $5.Step6 Try to eat protein rich foods for breakfast. It is easy to find high protein foods by reading the labels and looking for foods with 6-10 grams of protein per serving.
One good example is Carnation Instant Breakfast or the Great Value brand offered by Wal Mart.Step7 Lastly, I use Benefiber powder in almost all my drinks. Nutritionists recommend 25 grams of fiber per day. Benefiber or Fiber Sure is taste free, grit free and non-thickening, so it won’t change the taste or texture of your foods or beverages. Basically, what fiber does is reduce the number of calories from the foods you eat that your body holds onto.
