Help! When I eat healthy I’m always hungry!

11 Jul

summer 2

This morning, a few of us gals got together so the kiddies could play and the moms could drink coffee on the patio and chat! 🙂

One mama mentioned how she was hungry a lot of the time, which led us to talk about some good food choices.

In addition to taking my all natural Visi Trimma in the morning, (which fills me up,) as well as my Probita protein chews, (which help with late night snacking,) I make sure to do something that many health experts suggest – eat around 5-6 small meals a day instead of the three huge Sunday buffet sized portions that many of us have grown accustomed to!lol…

Here is a sample of what a day might look like, (just to show that you can still eat, and that wellness isn’t about starving yourself.) 🙂

Disclaimer: this is just what I eat on average; it’s not doctor prescribed! ;p

Breakfast: Visi’s Trimma, and a smoothie – water, 4 frozen strawberries, one banana, one orange, coconut flakes

Trimma – http://www.teamvisi.com/laurenholmes/products/trimma/index.html

Snack: sliced fruit, 2 all natural chicken nuggets (I eat the kiddies leftovers..lol..), coffee w/organic sugar and creamer

Lunch: whole wheat tortilla chips, bean dip, grilled or baked chicken

Snack: yogurt, fruit, Probita protein chew

Probita – http://www.teamvisi.com/laurenholmes/products/probita/index.html

Dinner: soup, vegetables, chicken or fish

Snack: fruit, Probita protein chew, or veggies and fat free dip

It may sound extreme, but believe it or not, after a few days of eating mostly fruit, veggies, chicken, fish, and healthy/low fat dips, it really doesn’t feel like you’re starving yourself.  By seasoning your foods and making it flavorful, you won’t really notice that you’re not eating carbs, overly processed foods, or cheese.  Of course I do the occasional cheat too!

I hope this helps!  See – it’s possible to eat right and still be full.  🙂

Blessings,

Lauren

Zumba your way to flat abs

4 Jul

After having two babies, it felt like my stomach muscles had flown to Mars never to return!lol…

But I am happy to say that they are returning thanks to two things! 🙂

The first is Zumba, (which allows you to twist and turn your core,) so you are getting an awesome work out every time you do it, and the second is Visi’s Trimma.  It helps to up your metabolism and decrease appetite using all natural plant based nutrients.  I can actually feel my stomach muscles tightening at night on it. 🙂

So even if you’ve had two (almost) ten pound babies like me, all hope is not lost!lol…

The last thing that’s been helping me in my awesome journey is an oldie but goodie: a strawberry banana smoothies in the morning and at night as dessert – just throw in a banana, a few frozen strawberries, and some soy milk, and viola, you’ve got what tastes like  a Frosty from Wendy’s.  You’re welcome!!lol… 🙂

Blessings and remember that it’s ok to eat that extra hot dog or hamburger today…you can Zumba later!!
