Good Bye Personal Trainer Food™. Hello to a new me!

As I officially end my 28 days on the REV program on June 4th, I am anxious to see whether I can incorporate all that I have learned through Personal Trainer Food™ to change my lifestyle, so that I am eating healthier. It is a sad day for me since I have become dependent on the foods provided to me initially knowing that these premeasured foods are full portions, which help to eliminate overeating, as well as eating the wrong foods. I am proud of the fact that I have progressed as far as I have in such a short time – 16.2 pounds and counting, but plan to continue onward with the program to reach my goal. Another 10 to 15 pounds to go, I think would be my perfect weight for my height and build. 

Good Bye Personal Trainer Food™. Hello to a new me! 

In a previous review, I mentioned exactly how important it is to get your exercise on a daily basis, as well as drinking plenty of water and eating your vegetables. This is especially true when you are dieting. The guidelines of the Personal Trainer Food™ program suggests that you walk 20 minutes or 2000 steps a day. Although I do my 20 minutes of walking a day faithfully, I was curious to know approximately how many steps I take on a typical day. To obtain this information, I downloaded an app on my smartphone just for fun, which counted the steps as time progressed. I was amazed to see that I had taken over 2000 steps even before I walked my 20 minutes on the treadmill.

The following photo depicts the amount of steps after I walked the 20 minutes.

Just think of it, over 4300 steps in one day. This is definitely an incentive to add other exercises into my daily routine. Since I lost weight, I need to firm up those flabby areas of my body.

If you are serious about taking the weight off, you will follow the guidelines closely. That means eliminating sugar from your diet, and no cheating. If you follow the guidelines, I can assure you that you will lose the weight. I have lost over 16 pounds in the 28 days of this program, and in doing so, I feel much better. I have more energy, I have dropped two pant sizes, and best of all, I am not hungry! The food that you receive from Personal Trainer Food™ are full portions with no fillers, hidden sugars, bad carbs or trans fats and low or no gluten.

After Personal Trainer Foods

Prior to starting the Personal Trainer Food™ program, I could only image what it would be like to experience a holiday without all the traditional foods on the table. However, I have since learned through the program to change my lifestyle. No, it is not anything drastic. Actually, it is easy to do, if you have the will power, which with the right incentive, you are able to achieve your goal. My husband has been a real inspiration throughout my journey to lose weight and must say that he is very pleased with my progress. Although I know he loves me, he is excited to see the new me, or rather the old me back in his life – the person I used to be prior to all the weight gain. He has supported me along my journey, and at times has even tempted me to deviate from the plan; however, I am staying strong and eating the correct foods. Even if I need a snack between meals, instead of the cookie or candy bar, I now reach for a couple cherry tomatoes (which have now become my favorite) or a celery stick.

This past Memorial Day, the weather was quite warm, so I decided I would try the following recipe from the Personal Trainer Food™ website. This was such a refreshing change from the usual holiday food served on a hot and humid day. Moreover, talk about tasty. Both my husband and I loved it. Check out the recipe section on the company’s website for suggestions of dishes to prepare, anything from meats to desserts. The best part of this site is the fact that you can get ideas on how to turn a plain and ordinary meal into something extraordinary and still stay within the guidelines of your diet.

Movin’ on Down

Do you feel different?  Have you relied on your scales to tell the difference you experienced, or have you judged your weight loss by the way your clothing fits?  How about your energy level?  Has that changed?  Do not expect huge results the first week of your diet plan.  You did not gain the weight overnight; neither can you lose it overnight.  It takes time to see the results with Personal Trainer Food.  Nevertheless, the results will come as you continue your efforts to lose the weight, so long as you do not cheat.

Movin’ on Down

As I approach the end of my first official week on the Personal Trainer Food program, I can definitely tell the difference, not so much in the weight department, or the way my clothing fits, but in my energy level.  The information that I received at the start of the program, listed various symptoms that I might encounter.  Normally, if I do not eat, I tend to get a headache, and while I was fasting, I did experience this sensation; however, to curb this, I simply drank a cup of warm broth.  Strangely enough, I did not have any cravings for any sugary substances while I was fasting.  What I did encounter the actual first day of the program was weakness, as well as a feeling of being tired.  This is normal because of the sugar withdrawal.  It normally takes about a week for your body to adjust to burning stored fat as fuel.  Keeping hydrated helps your body detoxify from sugar faster.

I can tell you that the food from Personal Trainer Food™ is delicious.  For breakfast, I had an egg omelet, as well as a sausage patty.  For those of you who skip breakfast, think again.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It gives you energy to get going, as it has been several hours since you last consumed any food.  While I am accustomed to a much larger meal for breakfast, I was eating the wrong foods.  Personal Trainer Food™ is teaching me a different lifestyle while consuming a full portion of food.  When I consulted my family physician several months ago about my weight issue, she told me that the average person eats approximately twice the amount of food in one day that our body actually needs, and to limit the amount of food I consume.  While she might be correct in her diagnosis, if I continued to partake in the wrong foods, even as I slimmed down on my portion sizes, I would not be able to drop any of the weight.

Week One

I have never considered myself a nutritionist in any sense of the word, but the Personal Trainer Food™ has helped me to recognize what foods your body needs to be healthy and active, as well as to assist in your weight loss goals.  Of course, the company has made it so easy by supplying me with prepackaged meals for the program.  By eating the Personal Trainer Food™, the correct foods for consumption, you direct your body to burn the stored body fat.

The various plans of Personal Trainer Food™ are designed to fit your needs.  On the REV! plan, I found that I am not hungry at all between meals, and only get a craving after dinner and before bedtime.  Therefore, I have saved my snack until that time of the day.  You are allowed two snacks a day, but I have discovered that I do not really need a second snack.  I think this craving late in the evening is psychosomatic.  You might experience cravings throughout the day, as each of us have a different body chemistry.  So, choose whatever works for you.

Just Get Rid of it Without Feeling Guilty

With the opening of the Southside Farmer’s Market, we need to focus our thoughts on foods that are good for our bodies to provide the energy we need on a daily basis.  For those individuals who are looking to slim down, foods from Personal Trainer Food is just what you need.  Of course to supplement, you are allowed other foods to help compliment your Personal Trainer Food, such as celery, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.  These are the types of foods that are now available at the Southside Farmer’s Market.

Just Get Rid of it Without Feeling Guilty

I am preparing to treat myself to a Mother’s Day gift.  A gift of a healthier lifestyle and thinner frame.  For such a long time, I have wanted to lose these extra pounds, but could never really stick to one diet.  I’ve tried several over the course of the last couple of years and although I lost a few pounds, as soon as I quit the diet, the weight came right back.

I recently kept a wellness visit arranged by my insurance company.  During this visit, the nurse took all the crucial information such as the medications I take on a daily basis, my height, weight, etc.  Now, I know that I am overweight and was pleasantly surprised when the nurse said that with my high body mass index, she would consider me as overweight, but not obese.  Despite the body mass index number, I know I am overweight simply because I feel sluggish.  I have no energy to do anything at all.  Furthermore, in brushing my hair the other day, I noticed that my arms were beginning to get flabby.  Yes, it is definitely time to do something about my weight.

Now, my daughter had the same weight problems for quite a number of years.  She rearranged her lifestyle many years ago to eat healthier and today she is 72 pounds lighter.  It took several months for her, but she accomplished what she set out to do, and that is to lose the weight.  Well, she tells me that my weight problem is from boredom.  Thinking back, she is correct.  One can never see what is right in front of your face until it is pointed out to you.

Recently a teammate took the Personal Trainer Food challenge, as well, and lost 30 pounds just since the New Year, but she was on another plan.  That was my incentive to do something about my weight problem.  So, when Personal Trainer Food offered me an opportunity to review their REV!™ plan, I was anxious to do so.  Thank you Personal Trainer Food.

Yes, that is right; I just needed some incentive to try this diet.

The Personal Trainer Food is not your typical weight loss plan, however.  With the Personal Trainer Food, the aim is to eliminate all sugar in your diet, as sugar is the culprit of most weight gains.  Now, I will be the first to tell you that I am a sugar junkie, or should I say, I was.  Today, I am fasting to prepare my body to lose the fat.  I have learned a lot about the benefits of fasting as it jump-starts your weight loss by providing an easier transition to fat-burning mode, deceases sugar withdrawal symptoms your first week, gives your digestive system a break and helps you bust through weight loss plateaus.  However, just because I am fasting does not mean that I have to do without.  With the Personal Trainer Food, even on your fasting days, you can have coffee, diet soda and other sugar-free drinks, unsweetened tea and drinks like water or flavor enhancers like Crystal Light™.  You can also have broth.  I had a cup of chicken broth for lunch and will have another one for dinner.  Then tomorrow morning, I will begin eating the Personal Trainer Foods.  Through the REV!™ plan, you receive 1 breakfast food of your choice:

PersonalFood3050616

You get one meat and one vegetable for lunch:

In addition, for dinner you get two vegetables.
