Recently, I've decided to make some changes in my lifestyle; in particularly with my health and nutrition. Easier said than done.
I've tried many crash diets and unfortunately not able to stick to them. I knew that I couldn't do this on my own and as much research as I could do online and advice given from friends. I thought I would seek some professional advice to ensure that I had a great foundation to start with. Afterall, at the age of 38, I can't afford to make any more bad decisions.
I sought the advice of Dr. Ginnan of Medalase Center to help in those decisions. I've watched his practice of the years and he truly preaches what he believes in. Good Health and Nutrition. After an hour's consultation this past week, He help to shed some light on areas I did not focus on and brought to my attention that part of my weight gain in the recent years could have resulted from internal issues I was not aware of. Yikes. To start, he suggested that I look into the T25 Workouts, because of the limited amount of time I was willing to committ to working out. I figured 25 minutes is something I can do, and for the past 2 weeks... I'm proud to say I've stuck to it and with only 25 minutes, I feel like I've run a marathon. No before and after shots sorry, I'm a bit self concious and always have been.
Based on our consultation, Adrenotone and Adrenal Complex were given to address appetite control and adreline fatigue.
He also suggest I stick to a paleo diet with little to NO Carbs. (I have to admit, I have been sneaking some in, but very rare. Afterall hard habits are hard to break.) Seeking his advice has set me on the right track to a healthy lifestyle. I've thrown away the weight scale, because there is not a specific number I'm trying to loose, but more a decision to change the foods I eat and to incorporate a realistic workout as I age.
For now, I feel great. I have good energy and I'm happy that I made this decision to change my outlook on how I see health and nutrition. For the first time, I actually read food labels and look at calories. Looking forward to their continued support as I make this transition.
