How to Loose Weight

Wow, it sure appears I am going off subject today, but that’s because you may have missed some earlier topics I discussed here on Uduzit. Actually, this is the fourth post I am doing on the subject of weight loss.

I was tag surfing on WordPress this morning and found a post that hit me in the heart. I know the pain and the confusion of being overweight. I knew it was impacting my health issues. My problem was, I couldn’t find anyone with answers.

Then I started asking questions, and yes, there are a number of posts here on that subject. When I asked questions I got the answers I needed. I just had to hear them.

While I was making my list of questions, I realized I needed information about cause, not symptoms.

Being overweight is about me taking in more calories than I needed. Excess weight is about excess calories, and no the answer is not exercise. The answer is about how many calories reach my stomach.

When I realized the industries that feed the government “facts,” I realized that the presentation of some information may be a bit biased. I looked at the recommended food pyramid for Americans, and started laughing.

I went to the chart on how many calories I was to eat each day for fats and carbohydrates. That was the eye opener. It was recommended I eat 1500 calories a day in carbs, and 500 grams of fat for my weight goals.

Something appeared out of balance. Sugar is like nitro, and fat is like diesel, when we realize we are talking about the fuel that runs our body. Nitro is a quick burn, and diesel fuel is a slow burner. Problem is, excess fuel gets stored, not burned.

I realized that sugar was my nitro. It gave me a quick energy rush, and when I didn’t burn it up, I carried it around. I realized my weight problem started at my mouth, and was caused by how I thought my body should be fueled.

Learning how to get my body running on less sugar became my goal. It was quite easy, and I used the Atkins diet for guidance. Eating a few hundred calories less sugar each day, became an easy task as my metabolism changed to burning fats.

This sounds simple and it is. I just had to learn some new ways to eat, and that has been fun. I eat everything and anything I wish now. My portions also became smaller, and as they did, I became smaller too!
