Bad French Man Habit

by qinfovio 6. April 2017 12:22

As a French Man I was taught in my early age to stay away from eating fat meat, butter and all that greasy kind of food.

And the best way to feed you would be by eating starchy, feculent, grain (like wheat, rice, potato, cheese, all dairy product, bread, croissant…)

Every day as a French Man, I have to had my cheese, bread, some king of starch product in all my meal, so I will get full content stomach.

The result of this habit eating has turn myself as what we would consider "Obese", Adding 2 to 3 pound every couple years and over 40 lb for the past 15 years.

My first item on to my to do list in 2017 was to loose weight. I went to check all types of available programs and what was the main component to help your loose weight.

I had in my background 20 years of professional cooking, trained in one of the best French kitchen at this time. I was taught to properly balance our daily menu including portion size.

The only thing that I have never been taught was protein, carbohydrate, lipid and what is in the food itself.

I opted for NutriSystem

I decided to order two months and it goes for 4 weeks each. They have a first week kit to help your reduce your intake amount of food, and you can add as much veggie that you want and also drinking a large amount of water.

I also have been working out daily at a small gym at the condominium complex where I live. I started at 230 pound and eight weeks later at the end of my program, I was down to 200…198… pound. The big change that I made in my eating habit was to cut most dairy product from my diet, mostly cheese and also all wheat, gluten, bread, rice, pasta…and using whole wheat that contain necessary fiber to fill your up.

My plan was to take it down to 190 pound and I am now 5 pound away.

The best way if you plan to keep loosing weight is to reduce the amount of protein, for seafood to 4 ounces, and poultry/meat to 6 ounces and stay away from carbohydrate, wheat, gluten and don't forget your water, a lot of it.

NutriSystem have a nice set up for tracking your progress. You can log all your food, water, work out. I also tried and used a bunch of their recipes, a new way for myself to re-invent my cooking.

The bottom line, I thought that it would a tragic time by cutting all cheese, bread and my daily wine and I did not miss any at all.

I am now down 35 pound, double my work out without any pain on my knees with a lot of more energy.

I am a strong believer that crisis creates opportunity…and loosing weight was one that was on my mind for a very long time but by going over this crisis, it will improve considerably health.

Just at then end of my eight weeks, our small gym closed for couple weeks. We have a limited amount of weight machine and I was thinking to join a local gym. I went to check most local gyms in our area.

And here I get the opportunity to sign up with InShape, at a cost of $35.00 per month and I can use any InShape location for this price. I will be using both InShape in Salinas during the weekend and during my working days, the other 3 locations, Monterey, Pacific Grove and Carmel. 

Working out is essential to your good health as much than eating the right amount of food. Give it a try!
