“9. Plan your meals
You know that friend who casually chats about the healthy meals she whips up for her fam like it’s NBD?
She’s planning ahead, and you should be, too.
When you plan an entire week of dinner in advance, you’re way less likely to go off course and indulge in foods that aren’t good for you.
Science backs this up, as those who spend more time prepping food at home eat at least eight servings of fruit and 13 servings of veggies each week, while those who don’t tend to eat only six servings of fruit and just under 11 servings of vegetables.
So get into a routine and, after weekly grocery shopping, kick the kids out for playtime with Dad so you can knock out as much work ahead of time as possible — cleaning and slicing veggies, portioning out chicken breasts for each meal, etc.
Come dinnertime, there’ll be barely any work before food is on the table.
10. Pay extra attention to labels
By now you know to swap out regular yogurt for the Greek stuff and white bread for whole-wheat.
But if you don’t look closely, a product labeled “”Greek”” or “”whole-wheat”” may not be what it seems.
A typical one-cup serving of plain Greek yogurt (like Fage 0%) provides 23 grams of protein and 9 grams of sugar, making it a smart choice.
But another version of what looks like the same product can have over 18 grams of sugar.
Not good, as the American Heart Association suggests women only eat 30 grams in an entire day.
The same trickery goes for whole-wheat bread packages. Some companies are loading it with high-fructose corn syrup, an unnatural additive that’s 20 times sweeter than sugar and not recognized by the brain.
Studies show that eating the stuff confuses your body’s hormones so you don’t realize when you’re full, essentially forcing you to overeat when you thought you were making a healthy choice.”
I’m Mary. And I tried it all.
Atkins, Southbeach, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig.
And I even listened to that silly baseball guy who talked about the shakes on TV for all those years.
And yet, since I had my son at 39, I had gained even more weight and had not lost any…
Well, maybe a few pounds for a little while but then it all comes roaring back when I stop whatever gimmick I’m on that month.
You should’ve seen me in my college days. I was tall, slim and had been blessed by the good Lord with an hourglass figure that always turned heads.
Hey, it’s how I attracted my husband Tom!
But after my first-born… I couldn’t get back down to my normal 130. I’m 5 foot 7, and that was always a great weight on me.
Yet I’ve spent the better part of the last 20 years pushing 220 pounds.
A lady I work with had just started this 2-minute “after-dinner ritual”…
She explained that age and genetics didn’t play a part as to why women in their 40s, 50s and even 60s don’t lose weight.
Instead, we were all gaining uncontrollable weight because of shallow sleep syndrome.
So, no matter how much you work yourself to death in the gym or restrict your diet, if you weren’t getting deep sleep, your body makes absolutely certain you never lose an ounce of fat.
But with this 2-minute after-dinner ritual she lost 22 pounds in 16 days without exercising or eating any weird foods.
At that moment, it dawned on me that it wasn’t my fault…
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, I wasn’t getting the deep sleep I needed causing my body to gain more and more weight.
Can you believe that?
So, New Years Eve 2019, I had my last “healthy” meal…
Comprised of cabbage soup, raw vegetables and water.
On New Year’s Day, I started the 2-minute after-dinner ritual.
I followed it day-after-day, without missing a beat.
All of my friends know that I HATE routine…
But this was different…
It was incredibly easy…
And I got to eat everything that was delicious.
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 the 2-minute after-dinner ritual and I lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
I look amazing in a sun dress and I feel 20 years younger… and to tell a bit of a secret… Tom can’t keep his hands off me!
This ritual has made such a big impact on my life…
That I would regret it if I did not share it 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 find out more about this 2-minute after-dinner ritual 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 this ritual.
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 saved my life.
