Carbs are fuel, and whole food sources, like fresh fruit, whole grains, and potatoes, are bundled with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Cutting out carbs completely deprives your body of important nutrients. This can lead to unwanted side effects like constipation, fatigue, and irritability.
But after age 40, your daily carb requirement may decline. Many of my clients find that they can’t eat large carb portions without either gaining weight or struggling to lose weight. The best resolution is to optimize the quality of the carbs you eat (say butternut squash over processed bread), and think of carbs as a smaller add-on to a meal, rather than the main attraction. or example, one client frequently ate veggie burritos, made with a whole grain flour tortilla, brown rice, black beans, salsa, and guacamole. Despite being a walker and practicing yoga, the scale wasn’t budging. The culprit: a carb surplus. That burrito packed 120 grams of carb, and even half of it was more than her body could burn in a given meal.
We worked out that in order to get to and maintain her healthy weight, her daily calorie needs were about 1,750. I find that a target of 40% of total calories from carbs is ideal for most of my over-40 female clients who are active, but not athletes. For her, that meant 175 grams of carb per day, or roughly 40-45 grams in each of her four daily meals. This moderate carb budget does allow for carb-rich foods—just in smaller portions, paired with larger servings of non-starchy veggies, lean protein, and healthy fat.
When we swapped her burrito for a salad made with a base of leafy greens topped with fajita veggies, salsa, black beans, and guac, the carbs came down to 42 grams. She still felt full, satisfied, and energized, and the scale started moving. The lesson: carbs aren’t inherently fattening or bad, so you don’t need to banish them completely. Nixing carbs altogether generally isn’t sustainable long-term, and it’s not optimal for health. The goal is to opt for quality carbs, and aim for balance—enough to meet, but not exceed your body’s fuel needs.”
I’m Carol. And I did it all.
Keto, vegan, Atkins, jogging, push-ups and squats.
I ate a healthy breakfast — eggs, oatmeal, berries and for dinner — chicken, brown rice and vegetables…
Just like my doctor ordered.
And yet, each day the scale would remain the same — the same 220 pounds every day for the past 20 years.
I was extremely unhappy, insecure and pretty much had no desire for, well, you know…with my husband.
I was on the verge of giving up completely when…
One sleepless night, I came across a Facebook post.
The post was written by Todd Pittman, a civil engineer from Asheville, North Carolina who’d stumbled upon a weight loss solution that helped him lose 68 pounds after years of failed diets and feeling hopeless.
The biggest revelation from Todd’s post was that the real cause of unexplained belly and body fat has nothing to do with how many carbs or sugar you eat…
Or how much dieting or exercise you do…
Or your genetics, thyroid hormones or even your age.
Instead, it all comes down to a low core body temperature — the temperature that’s deep inside you, your internal organs and cells.
When your body’s core temperature is low, your metabolism is slow, making it impossible for you to burn off excess fat.
So, no matter how much you work yourself to death in the gym or restrict your diet as much as you want, a low core body temperature makes absolutely certain you never lose an ounce of fat.
At that moment, it dawned on me that it wasn’t my fault that I could not lose weight.
All of the things I thought I was doing right, all the advice I’d receive from health professionals – starving myself, running until I ached, eliminating carbs, yadda, yadda, yadda — they weren’t really helping me because I wasn’t fixing the root cause of weight gain.
All that time and effort, not to mention thousands of dollars down the drain…
Because I was fed lies by these so-called health professionals who merely helped me treat and mask the weight gain “symptoms”…
While all this time, a low core body temperature was slowing my metabolism and making it impossible for my body to burn off fat.
Can you believe that?
Todd continued to explain that by following a simple 10-second “morning trigger”, no matter your age, shape or size, you can effectively target your body’s low core temperature, accelerate metabolism and burn stubborn fat.
Despite Todd showing a “before” picture and an “after” picture of himself from a couple of months ago, I was skeptical about the 10-second “morning trigger.”
But I owed it to myself to at least give this morning trigger a try.
And really, I was desperate to try anything.
You won’t believe what happened next!
In a single week, I lost 9 pounds and could really see the difference right away. My hips seemed slimmer and my jeans started to loosen up.
So I kept following Todd’s advice and I actually lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
I’m not down to 130, but at my age and for my height, I think 145 is pretty darn good.
And, at 44 years old, I look amazing in a sun dress and I feel 20 years younger… and to tell a bit of a secret… my husband can’t keep his hands off me!
Since then, I have found out that Todd made it his mission in life to share this healthy weight loss discovery with women all across the world.
Todd’s discovery has made such a big impact on my life that I would regret it if I did not share his presentation with others.
Imagine waking up every morning full of energy and loving what you see in the mirror…
Imagine enjoying the foods you love: pasta, wine, or even a dessert — completely guilt-free…
And imagine feeling good and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…
All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing rituals ever discovered.
If you’re a woman who has struggled with weight loss, you owe it to yourself to watch Todd’s presentation and finally have the solution you need to lose weight and take full control of your life once and for all.
The consequences would have been disastrous had I not have strapped on my faith and followed Todd’s 10-second “morning trigger”.
I would never be living the life of my dreams right now…
And I would have continued to gain more weight and be inundated with a whole set of chronic diseases including heart-attacks, diabetes and chronic joint pains.
I really hope it has the same impact on you as it did on me. Because the information you’re about to learn has literally transformed my life.
