Weight loss programs that I have followed
As you may know already I like to read and write about Weight Loss, so here is another post to help you on your way to losing some weight if you want to.
I think choosing the actual program to lose the weight is the hardest thing any of us can do, we always have so many questions
- which one is good value?
- am I going to be able to follow it easily?
- and of course, am I going to lose the weight?, which is probably the most asked question.
Well here are a few programs that I have followed and lost weight with.
This is the most recent program that I have followed and I found it worked really well. I have more will power these days and I also had the will to lose the weight, I was sick of not fitting into my clothes after having children. The picture is of me after I lost the weight, I felt fantastic.
This diet has easy food options and a diet generator with foods that you can make for the whole family, without them complaining too much. It can also generate your shopping list, so that you know exactly what you need to buy that week.
You are allowed to eat 5 smaller meals and of course drink lots of water, while on this diet I didn’t really feel hungry for anything else. Of course we all have our off days and need a treat.
Its documentation is easy to read and follow. It is not a monthly subscription you just pay a one off $57 and you have all the documentation and a log in for the internet, to use if you need to later on.
Best of all I reached my goal weight in 11 weeks losing 12 kilos/ 26 pounds using this program. My Mum also lost 5 kilos following this diet, I highly recommend it.
I am sure that most of you have heard of Weight Watchers, as they have been around for a long time. They have a point system that you have to follow.
Unfortunately at the time when I followed this program I didn’t have the will power. I remember driving home from a gym session eating a bar of chocolate, I think that I would have gone way over the points for that day.
I did follow it for a couple of weeks and it really did work, it is just a matter of working out how many points you are allowed each day and sticking to it.
This will set you back about $17 per month.
Sure Slim (Only Available in Australia)
This diet worked really well and the kilos just dropped off me, I wouldn’t however recommend this for anyone with children or a family to feed, as it is very limited to what you are allowed to eat. It is also quite expensive to join, I can’t recall exactly how much but I remember it wasn’t cheap.
This diet is worked out for your very own metabolism, you have to give a blood sample and they work your diet out using this, however my mother in-law followed sure slim and her diet wasn’t that much different to mine.
I didn’t feel hungry but at the same time I didn’t really feel satisfied. I think evenings after dinner were the hardest as you are not allowed to eat after 9pm, only drink water, which is of course important in any diet, we need to drink lots of water.
I don’t like to call it a diet, it is a healthy eating plan, a change of lifestyle. As I have followed all of these programs please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you may have.
