Fung, Jason (2016-03-03). The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss

what_to_eat_to_look_youngerSo according to Dr. Fung there are 5 basic conditions that will help us lose stored fat. It appears to me that if I simply switch my diet to eating mostly vegetable with just small amounts of meat and fish I can easily follow this food pattern. Although I am still making a few mistakes with my diet my intentions are to turn this all around very soon and develop an ideal diet and stock up on those foods that I know I should be eating each day.

I was able to increase my time on the treadmill yesterday while also doing a low weight, high rep workout on the Bowflex for Shoulders. I am really starting to feel as if I am getting back in the groove. I am starting to feel less stress on my belt line and it is inspiring to get a little more active.

Yesterday I once again practice intermittent fasting by eating my last meal at 6:00 PM the night before and waiting until 12:00 noon before having lunch. 18 hours without food and I felt fantastic. We visited our new Grand Daughter at the hospital yesterday and decided to have brunch at one Portland’s local favorite restaurants called the Screen Door. They are know for their all natural and organic ingredients. I ended up ordering Huevos Rancheros which was absolutely delicious. The hour and a half wait to get in was well worth it. For Dinner I decided to fire up the grill and cook a rack of ribs with light BBQ Sauce. I also prepared a salad of Romain Lettuce, Cucumbers and Tomato and drizzled Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic over it. It was a perfect meal.

Wine drinking went well last night with just a few 1/2 glasses slowly sipped over time. It provided me with a nice mellow feeling within getting drunk. I am starting to get the hand of this also.

    It takes discipline to eat healthy and workout…good for you for doing it!! I’m just getting back on track myself. I took a little over a year off from working out, and of course gained weight in the meantime. So I started back today with Yoga and cut out my nightly ice cream, I’m adding more fruit and vegetables to my diet also! Wishing you health and a new way of life!! 🙂

    • Thanks Deb, I love yoga too but find I just can’t seem to fit it into my schedule. Good luck with your re-start. It’s tough but as you remember gets so much easier with time. Billy 🙂

        Thanks Billy. I do remember and that’s what I keep telling myself. Fitting it into my schedule is the hardest part too, I have to get up earlier in order to do it. Hence I need to go to bed earlier which is where I’m off to now! Goodnight. 😴
