Back in October I purchased Chris Powell’s two books adding to my weight loss book library. I love Chris Powell. I love his show Extreme Makeover. I am so amazed as to how he transforms the morbidly obese into healthy people. He seems like such a nice person. He seems genuine. I went onto his web site. It has a wealth of information about carb cycling. Low carb for 2 days – 1 high carb day – 2 low carb days – 1 high carb day – and guilt free Sunday. (Notice it is guilt free not a cheat day).
On January 1st, I weighed 157.7. On Monday April 7th I weighed 156.9. That is not a great weight loss for three full months. Through the months I did get down to 153.1 for a nano second. But my weight has been fluctuating for three full months. Down a pound, up a pound. Down two pounds up one pound. Etc. Etc. And I was getting very discouraged. My husband even said “you might want to look into doing something else”. I thought long and hard about how I wanted to continue my weight loss. I could take a break and maintain my weight. But I did not want to do that because I really want to lose more. I could continue on the very slow but steady pace I am on but that was getting very frustrating for me. I could rev up my exercise. Which I did do. I am back to running 3 miles a day. And doing a boot camp on two days.
So last Monday I made a decision. I am friends with Chris Powell on Facebook and love his web site. I am also friends with Heidi Powell and have fallen in love with her posts on Instagram and Facebook. So I searched the web which brought me to the Vemma Bode web site. I did the research and felt this program made sense to me and it was sustainable. I purchased the Turbo pack which includes Protein Powder, Bode Burn (a protein drink) and colon cleanse.
I have to say I have been loving this program. I wake up each morning and absolutely love the protein shake. It is by far the best on the market. And I have tried many protein shakes. I enjoy the Bode Burn every afternoon for a quick pick me up. The jury is definitely out on the colon cleanse. I will save that for my next blog. I also am eating my regular foods that I love. Lean meats, vegetables, greek yogurt, fruit and healthy fats.
I have decided to commit to this program for four weeks. I can do anything for four weeks. So far for my first week on Chris Powell’s Vemma Bode program I have lost two pounds. I am at my lowest weight at 152.9 (besides the 153.1 nano second a month ago). I feel great and have a ton of energy. I am enjoying eating real healthy foods. So for the next four weeks Vemma Bode, Chris and Heidi Powell will be my weight loss partners.
