So, I know you ALL wanted to give me a present! Well, I know how busy we all are… 😉
It would make my day if you would listen to the following podcast and then pass it to one other person. If I could help one person by doing this, it would be the best present ever! This is kind of a selfish request on my part, because I would like us all to be healthy. (that way you can wish me a Happy Birthday every year for the next 30 or 40 years!)
The first 8 minutes of this podcast will explain why you never see the winners from the that TV show The Biggest Loser!
Then if starts with hunger. This is a big one for me. I’m never hungry anymore!! It’s liberating. Because I used to ALWAYS be hungry. Find out why.
I’ve been there! Gained weight in the 90’s and have never been able to get it under control. I’ve done the severely caloric restricted diets and worked my ass off riding my bike for hours a day. Why didn’t this work? They explain it.
On a more serious note. I watched my Mom’s husband suffer with Type 2 Diabetes. He ended up with a partial foot amputation and never recovered. It scared (scares) the hell out of me! Type 2 diabetes is SO prevalent these days! And it doesn’t need to be.
If this doesn’t play use this link.
One other VERY IMPORTANT thing I’ve learned in the last year! Insulin acts like a switch. If you eat anything that causes an insulin response, you immediately shut off access to using your stored fat for energy. For a good explanation watch this video for 90 seconds starting at 17:05 (should be cued up for you). So much for nibbling at little snacks all day…
