Is Ketchup A Vegetable?

Here we go … again. It’s diet time!!

Often the goal to loose weight shoots out of the new year cannon and then fizzles ever so quietly. It’s always a great idea.

Where’s the actual tenacity to make it happen?

Diets are a kick start. We need them to launch us into a layer of confidence that says…I can do this.

What’s a good diet?

Well, that depends.

Basically, a good diet is one that you will actually do. One that will help you lose weight, one that will teach you healthy eating – that is, if healthy eating is actually what you want. So many want to lose the weight  and not necessarily make changes to keep the weight off.

Many weight loss programs left me starved, bored or unable to manage with my lifestyle.

I finally found something that is a fit for me.

This inch loss program works with my chemistry, my lifestyle and keeps providing me results.

Some thoughts about dieting:

A weight loss meal replacement shake with hershey’s chocolate syrup, slathered with whip cream is probably not an ideal breakfast.

A Wendy’s cheeseburger might be a serving of protein and bread, but not necessarily a healthy DAILY choice for dinner.

specific program has it’s chemistry, doing the “make it up as I go sally version” might mess with the science behind the program. Try it — as is, for 30 days and see if it’s a fit for you.

Eating a huge snickers bar in cognito during the drive through car wash counts, even if noone sees you

French Fries are not exactly part of the food guide pyramid.

Ketchup is SO not a vegetable, that high fructose corn syrup is something worth adding to your lists of ingredients not to eat

No one needs chocolate, we understand we want it, but do we really really need it?

Okay Okay perhaps chocolate has it’s health benefits

Coffee is not a healthy beverage of choice.

Skip the diet coke – seriously,  just stop drinking them.

As a wellness consultant I have sometimes felt ill equipped to handle the emotional attachments to food or choices someone might make.  You would feel perplexed too if some who wanted to loose weight insisted that daily fast food and whip cream are a fine part of any weight loss program.

I question the commitment healthy lifestyle with the above kindof thinking.

I say this not to be mean or to judge, but to wonder outloud.

Can we be on diet and still eat fast food?  Why?

Can we really want to lose weight and still be eating whipping cream?   For breakfast?

Help me understand.

Ask yourself this —

Are you really committed to your health and well being?

If you are then that’s where my expertise, and inch loss products can be of assistance.

  2. I’m anti-diets and pro eating real healthy food. I eat full fat dairy, bake almost every weekend, etc… However I eat all food in moderation and it’s organic and from scratch. Lost 30 lbs, got my high insulin to a normal level, and my bp was high and is now great due to this way of eating. 🙂

    BTW coffee has health benefits as well. It’s good for opening air ways if you have asthma, studies show coffee drinkers are less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia. And have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes. Starbucks isn’t a health drink but good fresh made organic coffee with a bit of whole milk (raw is best but at least organic, or coconut milk is good as well) as little sugar as you can stand may be good for you. 🙂
