The baths have been the most difficult part as it is November & having arthritis. A quick Google search of the benefits of cold baths strengthened my resolve. They do make you feel energetic, warm & rejuvenated for the rest of your day. That alone is changing my life for the better. The cold baths help joint inflammation very much.
I've never cared for eating breakfast, when I do I gain weight. You get used to the black coffee if you're moving around as suggested. Again, very much helps with energy and appetite. I sip ice water the rest of the day which again helps with appetite. I haven't gotten hungry once, which is a miracle because I'm only eating 2x a day about 20-30g of carbs & mainly veggies & protein. I've struggled w/emotional eating & self control when it comes to food my whole life, finally I feel in control without trying. When your body is running the way that it is meant to, it becomes second nature to eat right.
There's a lot of other good information and suggestions in the book. This isn't just for 6 wks, it's a better way to live every day. This is the only weight loss program that I haven't counted down the days until I'm done and can go back to bad habits. It just feels better to live this way.
A lot of people are dismissing this book, but I'm very glad to have read it. Can't complain about losing at least half a pound every day, having a ton of energy, my skin looks better than it has in years, saving $ on groceries, & feeling happy & relaxed in general. It feels like magic, but it's better, it's science.
To be honest, I was completely skeptical about his ideas. I have been a die hard health nut for the last 12 years of my life. I have religiously ate breakfast every day of those twelve years, thinking I was revving up my metabolism by eating first thing in the morning. I became a runner about a year ago, and increased the amount of carbs in my diet to 60% daily intake because that is what all running experts tell you to do. And yes, they were the good carbs, whole grain, non-processed, lots of fruits and vegetables. Imagine my disappointment when I had my average weekly running mileage at 20+ miles and cut my average mile time by more than a minute and I GAINED 5 pounds. What?! I was supposed to be losing weight, not gaining it.
I injured my ankle and foot a month ago and have not been able to exercise at all except some upper body and core exercises since I can't put any weight on that leg. Knowing I'm not expending anywhere near the calories I used to, I tried counting calories to keep from gaining weight. All I got was frustration and the weight still creeping up.
When I saw a news segment about Venice Fulton's new book that said to skip breakfast and take a cold bath, I became intrigued, mainly because I am injured and can't really exercise. If I was healthy and still running 3-5 miles every morning, I never would have taken a second notice at his ideas. But because I am injured, I was much more open to hearing his ideas.
I'm only half way through this book - busy life with two small children. But I've been putting his ideas into practice as I read them. The cold baths - Whew! - but if it can rev my metabolism for the whole day just by sitting in cold water first thing in the morning, fine by me. I hate black coffee. I love my skinny lattes artificially sweetened, but after reading why this is so bad, I have cut the lattes and choked down a cup of coffee every morning. Yes, I have gagged. But again, small sacrifice in the morning that sets you up for fat burning the rest of the day.
Skipping breakfast was something I didn't think I could possibly ever do. It's actually been quite simple. It easily is my least social meal, so it has been easy to skip, and having Fulton explain why eating first thing in the morning is unnatural helps. My other diets that told me to eat like a king in the morning, a queen at noon, and a pauper at dinner really didn't work socially. It was really hard not to overindulge at night when everyone else is eating. So it's nice to eat with everyone else again and not feel guilty. And not that Fulton encourages over eating. He says not to snack, which - being a die hard frequent meal eater is not easy to change - has actually made it easier for me not to overeat during my three meals of the day.
The amazing thing? I've lost 3 pounds in less than a week exercising less than I ever have in the last 12 years. Give it a try. It's mentally challenging at first, but it's amazing how fast the body adapts back to the way nature intended it to be.
