‘I Did A Low-Carb, Intermittent Fasting 18 6 Diet To Lose 70 Lbs.’

My name is Charmaine Canida (@_coachceecee), and I am 28 years old. I’m from Houston, Texas, and I’m a case manager and wellness coach. After seeing a loved one deal with health issues as a result of poor nutrition, I changed my lifestyle by eating a low-carb, intermittent fasting 18:6 diet and doing Camp Gladiator boot camp workouts.

Removing the tonsils was at one time the fashion, and was supposed to relieve throat infections, although evidence suggests that there is not a significant … Read More

Lose Weight With the 60 Day Food and Fitness Program & Journal

Put these two weightloss tips to work for you with The 60 Day Food and Fitness Program & Journal by Brad Peterson, one of the most comprehensive weightloss journals available.

Why Keep a Weightloss Journal

Often people believe they are eating much less than they actually are. They don’t pay

attention to portion size and often estimate that they are eating many less calories than they actually consume. We kid ourselves that that little handful of chips or that cookie didn’t really count.

Keeping a weightloss journal allows you keep track of all the calories you actually eat throughout the day and stop estimating.

You might even see some interesting patterns, like empty calories spent on snacks or eating too much after dinner … Read More
