Variety Of Different BreadsKick your weight reductions efforts into high gear by eliminating carbohydrates for just two weeks and then adding back healthier carb choices over a few short weeks. By eliminating carbohydrates you will significantly alter your body chemistry thereby increasing your metabolic rate and reducing many food cravings. Simply cut all bread, rice potatoes, and pasta.

Many individuals report a quick weight loss of seven to fifteen pounds and noticeable reduction in their mid-section within these two weeks.

Cheater’s Temptations.

If you are sneaking around in the dark recesses of the night, spreading sugary peanut butter on thick white bread with marshmallow fluff dripping from the spoon, there is one simple explanation. These satanic snacks called you out of bed in the middle of the night and tempted you. Clearly, its time to empty closets, cupboards and drawers, of these empty good-for-nothing temptations. Be true to yourself and your commitment to you healthier tomorrow.

Say “Goodbye” to CPAP Machine

Email from another satified SCS WeightLoss System patient/client…

“I just wanted to send you a short e-mail expressing how happy I am with your program. In six short weeks I have managed to lose almost 20 pounds and 4 inches off my waistline but the biggest loss for me has been losing the need to use my breathing machine for the past two weeks during the night. Diagnosed with sleep apnea and a severe snoring problem I have been using a CPAP machine for over three years but with the weight loss I now no longer need it for a restful nights sleep. My wife tells me my snoring has virtually ceased and I no longer start gasping for air after not breathing for 20 to 30 seconds. I have read numerous articles that being overweight can contribute to snoring and sleep apnea and if I had known that losing just 20 pounds would have freed me from sleeping with a mask over my face I would have taken the weight off a long time ago. Weight loss may not be the solution for everyone with my problem but it sure has made life and sleeping a lot more comfortable for me. Please feel free to pass on my e-mail to the other participants in your program that may have the same sleeping problem. Also, along with feeling healthier, not needing to use a CPAP machine is a tremendous motivator for me to keep the weight off and lose another 15 pounds!”

Clearly, it’s time to empty closets, cupboards and pantries of empty, high-calorie temptations.  Be true to yourself and your commitment to a healthier tomorrow.

Easy calorie-cutting tips!

With all the holiday “treats” lurking on every counter top, here are some simple tips for calorie-cutting:

  • Use cooking spray or low-sodium broth when pan cooking
  • Drink water or 0-calorie beverages instead of soda or sugary drinks.  Even low-calorie drinks can add up to to 100 calories or more by day’s end.
  • Use non-stick pans and replace oil or butter in your holiday baking recipes with natural applesauce.
  • Avoid sauces, cheesy spreads and creamy dips.  They may seem like little harmless toppers but you’ll be adding 100’s of calories without knowing it.
  • Substitute recipe ingredients like whole milk with skim milk; whole eggs with egg whites or egg substitutes; buttery crackers with buckwheat crackers; ice cream with yogurt.

Enjoy your favorite holiday treats with a few creative changes, for a healthier, more calorie-conscious mind set!
