Our WW at work will resume with the new program the 2nd week in Jan. Have a glass of wine with dinner and just savor. Actually you are entitled to 21 points- anything less is very difficult to maintain. I need support for motivation!!!! So I just used the formula to calculate my points and I come up with 20 points. I think the best thing we can do is realize we didn't gain it overnight and we can't lose it that fast. He travels a lot, hence the restaurant food is putting on the pounds.
Instant Pot Weight Watchers Recipes to the Rescue
I have several friends that have been very successful with the Slim 4 life plan as well as other plans that are availble. The internet is a great resource for research. You are absolutely right. I was saying the same thing when I was reading what the doctor said.
What in the world could an herbal drug do to hinder your prescription drug except for maybe keep the prescription side affects from killing you? You should really be looking at what that prescription is doing to your system as opposed to the herbs.
I was on Weight Watchers for over a year and lost alot of weight but did not stick with it so I have gained half of it back. I just joined Slim 4 Life because you can talk to someone for support daily one on one instead of once a week in front of a large group. I have high blood pressure and high colest.
Can you tell me what program they use for people with these conditions? I started slim4life Dec. I did loose down to lbs and really maintained at about to as the year finished out — however I began to show symptoms of something.
Went to doctor and turns out that my liver has been affected and that something has brought this on — I do wonder if it was all of the thermoboost powder which I drank on a daily basis for the year along with the thermo snacks required during weight loss.
If you have had a similar issue please respond back to me ASAP — I am unable to find out much since slim4life is now slimgenics and they no longer allow past participates to purchase product. I am interested in anything that might be similar to my situation. Hi, I did slim 4 life as well and lost about 35 lbs.
Before I started, I had normal liver function tests. When I had my blood tested, post S4L i had elevated liver function x2 , I recently went back and had it checked again and now I have elevated liver function x3.
The only thing in my life that changed during that time was that I was on S4L. I highly suspect that either the carb blockers or the red grays have affected my liver. I am no longer on S4L and I no longer take any of their supplements. I never used the thermoboost powder but I took all the supplements as directed during the program.
I too am being evaluated for elevated liver function. It started with a dull ache in the liver area right after I started slimgenics. I have an ultrasound tomorrow, will keep you posted. I have been off the supplements for at least a month but am still having the pain…. I started slim4life in May, at lbs…am now at and while I love the way I look, my hair is falling out and my kidney function is out of whack as well as my ferritin levels have bottomed out.
I would just like to know how the product work? Another thing is how much it cost to get started with the program? Is this something i could do without paying a large amount of money? What are the key elements to losing weight on this program? What makes this program different from the other programs out? Slim 4 Life is a good program.
They do teach you the essentials of eating healthy. However, the weight that you lose is great but, you may also be losing muscle since they do not incorporate working out into the program. You do take supplements such as a daily vitamin, essential fatty acids fish oil and an appetite suppressant they call the metabolizer not to mention the protein bars and shakes that run more than I went from to in a short amount of time.
Once, I hit I plateaued miserably. I did all that they asked me to do and could not lose any more weight. I was basically told, they could not help me. I left Slim 4 Life and they still call me wanting me to come in. I work out now and still eat healthy but, I eat corn, carrots, and cheese. All of which is forbidden until you lose ALL the weight.
I am happy and healthy and still am losing in a healthy way on my own.. Wish I had read this page before I spent almost two thousand dollars on Slim 4 Life. I was on the program for aproximately three and a half weeks going to the store four times a week for weigh ins.
I lost six pounds by drinking tons of water and taking there suplements which ending up making my heart race. I ended up in the Doctors office thinking I was having a heart attack. Believe me there is no money back guarantee. This turned out to be one big mistake….. Hi, l feel the same way two thousand dollars on slim 4 life.
The pills did not do a thing for me. I need to get some of my money back. I tried slim for life a year ago and it is so disappointing. Once you break the diet down you are allowed to eat between calories a day! I spent over 2K on slim for life to lose 30 pounds. I took all the nasty pills and drank the nasty power boost and did the whole thing. I lost about 28 in 12 weeks.
But I am healthier and happier. I was not obese but took off the weight for vanity. I lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks…. Dieting is about Calories in and Calories out…. I only had 18 lbs. I feel very jittery and weak. I am a mother and cannot really focus and be there for my kids the way I need to be because of the way I feel. I did the Atkins diet years ago and went from a size 12 to a 2 in months and never felt like this. I have lost maybe 4 lbs. Now here i am at 5 months and one thing i have noticed is that even though i am not doing the diet that well, i am still using supplements and i am loosing hair like crazy.
At first i thought it might be my age as i am 58, or maybe a medication, even though i had been on it for months, but this is crazy loss. Yes, I too was losing hair like crazy. I have very fine thin hair so this was a real concern. I also thought it might be my age as I was 50 the first time I did the program. I gained all the weight back and went back a second time and had the same issue with hair loss.
I only wanted to loose 23 lbs. I did loose 6 lbs, though, and felt pretty good. Any by the way, my stomach started to hurt really bad about the 4th week into the program… and yes, this is absolutely a no money back program, which to me is horrible. If the pills are causing sickness, their should be some type of refund, even half would be great. My reason for trying the program was to get off blood pressure meds, which for 4 weeks I did.
I am also trying the green smoothies now, and walking more. I really want to get off the meds for good and loose the weight as well…. I may be different from all. My wife got in to slim for life three months ago weighing LB. But now she is LB she really enjoys the food she is really energetic. So she loves it and she said it is worth paying the money. Because she tried south beach diet and all appetite suppresant pills which most of them deprive her sleep and reacting with medication which she used to take.
So I may not agree with you in this matter. But thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to express my opinion. I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I was very excited. I highly recommend it. It was way to expensive for us.
You said you followed the food rules and lost… did you also use any of the over the counter bars or thurmal boost pills to try to help it along??
Find Omega3 and a Carb blocker. My mom paid for the program and lost about 45 lbs in 4 months. I am on it right now and have lost about 16 lbs in 5 weeks. This is what I eat: Tuna or chicken for lunch, a protein bar I prefer the Zone bars and chicken or fish for dinner. The first 3 days are only protein and veggies no carrots, corn, or peas. Very simple diet to follow. My husband has lost 20 lbs in 5 weeks. My mom started this diet a few years ago and lost 45 lbs in about 4 months.
The first place you lose it is your stomach which is great but you must follow the program which is fairly simple. My husband and I have been doing the diet for about 5 weeks. I have lost 16 lbs and my husband has lost 20 lbs. My mom gave me the diet plan.
I ate 2 boiled eggs and 1 orange for breakfast. I felt satisfied and lost 5 lbs the first 3 days. After that I added in one starch per day and a protein bar I prefer the Zone bars-which a counselor told my mom is the same thing as their bars.
You are not suppose to eat cheese but my husband and I will sometimes eat string cheese as an afternoon snack. I probably could of lost more over these 5 weeks but I drink beer on the weekends. It is a simple plan to follow and it does work. My stomach is flatter now than before I had my daughter in February. The 3 day prep is. You can also have as much Kraft Fat Free dressing as you want to go with your vegetables and to put on your meat as well.
You are basically doing the Atkins diet during your prep phase. Also make sure you drink plenty of water oz a day. You pee your fat out, that is why it is so important to drink water. I cannot afford the program. I have tried pretty much everything out there with no success. I visited with a slim4 life an program is way too expensive for me. And also the 3 day prep diet. I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much! Hey Rose, Would it be possible for you to share the list and prep with me?
I would greatly appreciate your help! Could someone please send me the list of foods. I truly want to lose weight but need a quick start for now. I would appreciate it so much, I am getting married in July and really need to lose about 20 pounds. Try Somersizing- you could drop 20 effortlessly — kindof the same as Slim4life with more choices and variety — can get the book at a bookstore — even the used bookstores have it.
You can cook at home or eat out. Did they check all the galbladder ducts? If you have a stone in one of the bile ducts it can cause extreme pain. I agree it did sound like gallbladder because when you lose fat at a high rate of speed it gets all clogged up in the gallblader ausing stones.
This happened to me and I had mine out also. Yes the same happened to me after being on their plan. I just started the plan and had the same severe pain after taking the first day of pills. My friend had similar problems, she got really sick several times. They also thought she had something wrong with her gallbladder.
I joined the Slim4Life program in the spring of I lost 70 pounds quickly and was so happy buying new clothes, etc, wanted to lose pounds more. Then I started having regular diarrhea at times uncontrollable and excessive gas and could not find relief.
She suggested I see my doctor. Finally had to stop program because of stomach problems. Was prescribed 2 antibiotics and problems ceased….. Problems recurred every months. Antibiotics are not helping the same way they had the first time.
With the Instant Pot's wide range of cooking abilities, it's easy to get overwhelmed when trying to figure out the functions: The best sous vide machines and cooking devices according to Amazon reviews. Sure, there are healthy-eating vloggers who put their recipes on Instagram, but those sped-up videos are way too hard hard to follow — and when your meal doesn't end up looking or tasting as perfect, getting frustrated is inevitable.
Well, actually, most of the good ones also have Kindle versions, but I digress — it's the same idea. There are a ton on Amazon, but we've picked out the ones with the best reviews — so you can be sure that the books actually teach you stuff and don't make you more confused than before. There are, of course, the general use cookbooks with traditional American dishes and dinners that even the pickiest eaters will like, as well as books that home in on a specific diet or cuisine like Indian food or a vegan or ketogenic diet.
There's even an official Weight Watchers Instant Pot cookbook. These are your "traditional" recipes that would probably be found on the menu of any American restaurant: BBQ ribs, soups, seafood, bacon and egg breakfasts, the works. Most aim to be healthy and cut down where they can, but they're not specifically about any certain diet or weight loss plan.
If you've got picky eaters in the house, these are the books you'll want. After reading that this book has 1, days of recipes, do you really need any more convincing? You could have a different food experience every single day for over two years. With the Instant Pot Cookbook: Seriously, even the world's pickiest eaters me included can find multiple things to eat in here.
The variety of recipes is outstanding. There aren't a thousand recipes, but in the back of the book there are menu plans for days which matches the title of the book. Cruising through the cookbook makes me hungry. Many of the recipes are gluten free I'm cutting carbs to loose weight which helps the way I'm living now. These recipes are not the same recipes borrowed from other recipe books and pinterest pages.
They are different and original. I'm looking forward to cooking them. I'll update my review with the sure to be delicious results. Even if you live in the most divided household on the planet when it comes to favorite foods, this book has got you covered with a variety of traditional beef and pork dishes, soups, vegetarian recipes, seafood, and more.
Regardless of the mood everyone is in, you're covered. The book has a rating of 4. Another bestseller comes in the form of the The Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook — claiming to have sold over , copies, this book is not messing around when it comes to recipe variety. You'll make things like chicken tikka masala, corn on the cob, pulled pork, lamb curry, beans and rice, and a cinnamon raisin French toast bake.
You can preview a good amount of the book on Amazon, and you'll see that everything is hella detailed and laid out with easy-to-understand comparison charts, and they'll let you know which recipes are vegetarian. This is a book officially endorsed by Instant Pot, so you know you're in good hands. This pot is amazing and I love it. I got it for my wife, but so far I've done all the cooking in it.
My first meal was a Sunday pot roast dinner. I've never attempted to cook a meal like this in my life. My wife has always done this in the oven. I was stunned to have this pot roast come out about as perfect as you could get it.
The inner cooking pot is easy to clean and you'll want to do more and more with it with each success you have. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a new adventure in cooking. Do what the book says and you'll have amazing meals right from the start. You should buy this. As we learned in the reviews, we'll warn you that this is not the recipe book for a family of picky eaters. Many of the recipes aren't traditional American foods, which isn't likely to go over well with kids who won't eat anything past BBQ ribs or chicken noodle soup.
This book does, however, list out specific recipes and pages for holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, the Fourth of July, and Jewish holidays, which I thought was a nice touch. It also has a 4. It'd be nice if you actually understood all of the things your Instant Pot can do, right?
Though the other cookbooks will obviously explain steps, if you're new to this, somehow being able to make yogurt and roast chicken in the same gadget can easily get a tad overwhelming. How to Instant Pot is your ticket to the ins and outs of this fancy contraption, basically acting as an "Instant Pot for Dummies" manual. Yes, "Instant Pot" is totally a verb. Each recipe walks you through how to use and set each Pot feature particularly with the Pressure setting , and while this might seem redundant to repeat these things at first glance, it actually reassured me that I was doing it right.
Eventually that knowledge will become second nature, but in the meantime I feel confident in just following the clear instructions. The recipes are delicious and varied. I highly recommend this book as a first Instant Pot guide, with the added benefit of outstanding recipes You'll have the option to make a spread of things, from meat and potatoes beef stew, to chorizo, to corn on the cob, to squash soup, as well as a ton of mouth-watering desserts.
That's lava cakes in the picture up there, by the way. Overall, the book has a 4. Not a meat eater? On that old school paleo diet? Yup, there's a book on that, too. Think keeping up with a vegan diet is hard?
