A: Alcohol spikes your blood sugar rapidly putting your body in fat storage mode. Additionally alcohol causes your liver to get drunk and prevents it from metabolizing. This causes more fat storage.
Started at 138.2 pounds. Wasn’t working out previously. Have started going to the gym for 1.5 hours and about 3-4 times a week. I’ve eaten more veggies during these 6 weeks than I have my entire life combined. I learned that I actually like salads, veggies, and backed fish. I realize I’ m probably going to still dabble in sweets and starches, but will over all be eating healthier day to day. Sadie Bryan Coppell, TXEating healthier day to day

I have yo-yo dieted all of my life and I have been on every diet out there. This class has taught me it’s not about drastic dieting, but eating healthy. I plan to continue with the tools I have learned. I am not able to take the next class (work issue) but I would like to come to the class after that if you come back to Coppell. I am getting cholesterol checked this week and I know I will see improvements. Dana Chandler Coppell, TXTaught me it’s not about drastic dieting
Just because you’re ‘thin’ doesn’t mean you are healthy. For YEARS I have cycled on & off of various fat-burners. Not just for the appetite suppressant but for the energy. One thing I noticed when taking these supplements was that various knots in my body would grow when I was on them and would shrink when I stopped. Sure, all of the advertisements touted the ‘safety’ of these products, yada, yada, yada, but REALLY?! If you have cysts in your hands and wrists that grow when you’re on a certain product, something isn’t right. But still I continued…. Honestly II feel so much more energetic these days.
Still on journey – 25 pounds down and happy!! Catherine Collins Dallas, TX25 pounds down and happy!!
