The Journey Continues

May 3rd, 2010

In an effort to continue educating myself on nutrition, health and yes, weight loss, I’ve been researching and reading on various foods and also things that we don’t always think about when considering weight loss- and that’s stress, sleep, and negative thoughts. For the most part we all tend to think that weight loss is all about calories in -vs- calories out, and while that is true, there are also obstacles that can stand in our way to keep us from being as effective with our journey as we’d like.

Something I’ve also recently come to realize is that because our bodies are different, and because the way we metabolize things differently, some people need different things in order for them to get the most out of their bodies. I’ve recently started trying to up my protein levels because as we all (or most of us) know, protein helps build lean muscle mass. I do eat a lot of protein, but I’m still under what I’ve been wanting to eat and wondered about possibly investing in protein drinks weight loss to see how that would help me along my journey.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want or aspire to be a body builder, but I do want to boost my muscle mass, because in turn it will push my metabolism up and I’ll burn more calories per hour even when resting than I would otherwise. I think it’s going to make a difference- that and getting rid of the negative psychobabble that upon observation found that I give myself far too often. The important thing is to be healthy, and I’ll be expounding on that in the near future.

    My grandma has been making smoothies with fruit and vanilla protein powder. It sounded like a good plan to me!
