This month I did a complete overhaul on my BodyJoy Slim Down Challenge. I've learned so much the past few months being part of a private study based on scientific research with clinical nutritionists, registered dietitians, scientists, and functional & traditional medical professionals. Now that I know better, I had to incorporate it to help others KNOW and DO better too!
Here's a comment from one of my new participants who dropped 5.6lbs. in 7 days...
“I'm actually really proud of myself for week one and super motivated by the results. I found ways to eat things I do enjoy by putting it in my log and making decisions around that. Planning ahead of time has really been key….I thought that I would have a harder time staying within 3-4 meals a day, but I end up being so full. In fact, it made me not crave treats because I was so full. I also found on busier times how to pack the right food that I need. Tonight we have a BBQ so I'm taking my own sides and logged the chicken before hand. This week my goal was to make dinner meals that my family and I can eat together but maybe I have less sides etc. It's hard with a house of all boys...most trying to put on weight. Thanks so much Mindy. This really has been an eyeopening experience.” Marni R.
Because Marni is eating real food and adequate amounts of calories I know she didn't starve herself the past 7 days. Inflammation from food is a REAL problem that most people don't realize. Removing those possible foods decreases bloating and water retention, an can even decrease pain as well as help burn body fat. Results aren't just about calories, they're about nutrients and other important factors too!
If you don't think 7 days can make a difference, try making just one change and do it consistently for 1 week! I promise you'll have a positive result that can fuel your motivation to continue the process. The hardest part is actually starting! So today, commit to your one change. Use your BodyGym daily, replace your soda with 64 oz. of water (infused with sea salt and fresh squeezed lemon or lime), watch your portion sizes are just a few ideas!
Tell me what you'll do different and next week by commenting below then check in to share your progress! I'll keep you updated on my June participants because they're going to be right there with you making the next 7 days successful too!
