Maia's No Fail Weight Loss Program Week 2

Now I'm sure that you all have been eating three meals a day, right? Now that wasn't too hard was it? This week, I'm going to add something to that.  I want you to take at least a half an hour to eat each meal.  Why, because most people who are heavy are mindlessly and quickly shoving down the food  I know I did.  You are eating so quickly that you don't even have time to taste what your putting in your mouth.  And that's a problem.

When you start to slow down the meals, you are going to really, maybe for the first time, in a long time, taste what you are eating. Does all that grease and fat really taste good? I don't think so.  So this week I want you to really taste your food. You can do it.  And while your at it, make a list of what you like, when you really taste it and what you can do without.

How hard is this?  Now I've heard that some southern university has published a study that says if you count how many times you chew and you only chew 1000 times, you are guaranteed to lose weight.  Well who in their right mind has time to count how many times they chew their food?  Just slow it down and you'll do fine.

Oh yes, if  any of you want to see how Dweezil and Squig are doing out west, head on over to:

Maia's No Fail Weight Loss Plan Week 1

Since I lost the 35 pounds and have kept it off for a year now, I am constantly being asked, how did you do that.  So i have decided to give you my step by step no fail weight loss plan. Now I know that most horse people are already thin.  So for those of you who are not horse people, let me clue you, the horse isn't the only one getting exercise here.

So what are you going to do this week, to propel you on the course for a thin new you.  You are going to eat three meals a day.  That's what you are going do.  I don't care what those meals are, but there are going to be three of them.

I can here that muttering, "Oh Miss Maia, it's so easy for  you to eat three meals a day, you don't have my high stress job, hideous commute, never ending chore list.  I don't have time to eat three meals a day."

Well get over it.  I have all of the above and if I can, you can too.  Did say what those meals had to be?  Nope, I'm leaving that up to you.  If you want to drive to work eating a McGriddle and tater tots, washed down with a Mocha Latte, it's entirely up to you.

There is some science behind the three meals a day rule.  When you skip meals, your body goes into starvation mode and super utilizes every calorie you take in. This makes it almost impossible to lose any weight.

So take a nice long look at yourself in the mirror and if you think you could stand to lose a few, find a way to eat those three meals

PS:  Remember, I don't care what those meals are, if you hate breakfast foods, eat something you like in the morning,  This diet isn't about deprivation and feeling miserable.  It's about looking and feeling fantastic.
