God Has Done a Miracle Weight Loss for Me

                God Has Done a Miracle Weight Loss for Me

In the last week of April, first week of May 2013 I started the Team No Sugar diet. I listened to the TV new reporter on channel 3 WBTV news. She said she lost 40 pounds in 3 months. So far, I have lost 30 pounds since 1st week of May and it is now August 22nd.

Team No Sugar diet is no processed cane sugar at all and no sweets or soda or juice that has sugar in it. No sugar is 85% of the diet plus no carbohydrates including no rice and no dairy products.

The diet is Team No Sugar diet is by Brigita Mack on WBTV.com channel 3 local news in Charlotte, NC. 

I was 245 pounds and I’m now 215 pounds and still losing. Last week I was 220 pounds. I eat whatever meat and vegetable besides potatoes that I want. I eat all the salad and fruit I want. Instead of sugar I use artificial sugar packets. I drink water, hot tea, coffee and iced tea that I make with tea bags.

God is ALL behind this weight loss thingy because I been praying for it for years. AND…God had me home at the right time to see this on the TV news. If God wasn’t in it, I would still be around 250 pounds today. I have figured it out to be me losing 2 pound a week for the last 15 weeks!

Thank God, Thank you Jesus!!!

Please be very careful.  The artificial sugars are often carcinogenic.  Carbohydrates are necessary for you as well.  The trick to losing weight is a change in lifestyle, not just eating.  It's good to eliminate most sugars, but be aware that fructose (fruit sugar) is just as much a sugar as cane sugar. 

Here is a trick I learned:  protein in the morning.  That keeps your metabolism quite steady through the entire first half of the day.  Whether its nuts or eggs or meat or whatever, but you should have it with some kind of carb for the start-up kick your body needs.  I have a handful (small) of raw almonds and half a slice of my own oatmeal toast along with green tea for breakfast.  But I also snack through the day, and carbs have to be part of it, but in small amounts.  In addition, having some kind of carb, such as a little oatmeal, before bed, helps you sleep much more soundly and that sleep will make the next day ever so much better. 

Again, though, please stay away from artificial sweeteners.  What you need to do is stop your 'sweet tooth' altogether.  I learned that due to diabetes.  I was kicked by a horse when I was 21 and lost my spleen and half my pancreas.  I did not become diabetic for many years after that (I am 65 now), but I have learned that you can basically kill your sweet tooth, so that one or two bites of something sweet is all you can tolerate.  It's just 'too much.'  That is a very healthy place to be.

Good for you on your weight loss, but please remember that whole grains are very good for you,, and brown rice is a whole grain.  Potatoes are also very good for you, actually -- you just don't have to load them up with butter and such.

Wow you are doing well. Trouble is that I rarely eat sugar anyway, or white flour, or bad fats, but still struggle to loose weight. I dont need to loose much, just 20 lbs or so, but the older I get the harder it gets to loose it.

It is harder to lose it, but I lost 25 lbs this spring and it's staying off.  I'd love to lose another 5, but that's negotiable.  The trick was activity and having been sick.  After a bout of something or another, when I couldn't eat much, my stomach had shrunk and I was perfectly happy with very small amounts after that.  With spring and the outside work ramping up, the weight almost fell off.  I was ecstatic. 

Now the trick is not to gain that winter ten.  That would mean getting my next size clothes back out and I REFUSE to do that!  But if I lose more, then I will have to buy all new clothes, and I can't afford to do that!  I am at a healthy weight now, one size more than I was in high school when I was doing some 'catwalk'/runway modeling.

So I'm happy.  Green tea does boost your metabolism a bit, by the way, but it takes a little while (a month or two?) and I do drink 3-4 cups a day just because I like it.

I exercise every day,(we have a dog who has 2 daily walks), and try and swim regularly. We also stay away from sugar, white flour, pastry, cakes, biscuits,  potato chips, fizzy drinks, fried food, puddings of any sort and don't eat many carbs, but still I struggle to loose any. I have lost 8 lbs this year, but that took an extremely strict food intake.
The older I get the less I can eat to stay the same weight. In my early adult years I was mega thin, less that 110 lbs, and I never want to get back to that, but would like to loose another 15-20 lbs. No more than that as the face starts to sag.

Really amazing; I have been suffering from overweight problems in the beginning of my teen age. But through the help of a strict diet plan I am able to deal with my overweight issues. In my point of view "No Sugar" diet works better; as we have found that people those are addicted towards sugar like sugary drinks (soda; soft drinks; juice) are suffering from overweight issues. I consider regular cardio exercise; yoga practice; strict diet and less calories to reduce overweight problems.
