I Reached My Goal!

designI blogged that I hired a nutritionist to create a personal meal plan a few months ago. My focus was to reduce my BMI (Body Mass Index) based on a recent health assessment from my 9-5 job. As I shared in my December post Nutrition: The Missing Link, the foods recommended in the meal plan I already had in my kitchen! It was simply a matter of eating the right foods in combination, increasing my water intake, and exercising regularly.

During this journey, I’ve learned much about clean eating and its benefits. Clean eating is primarily about meal preparation and nutritious food choices. I’ve also experimented with some quick and easy recipes recommended by my nutritionist that accommodated my busy lifestyle.

Within three months, I lost a total of 20 pounds and 16 inches! I lost the most inches from my waist; 8 inches to be exact. I reached a few weight plateaus during the process but, increasing my water intake and exercise was a quick resolve.

Overall, this was a wonderful and much-needed experience. I decided to continue with the nutrition plan and have since exceeded my initial weight loss goal of 20 pounds! I’m so glad that I made my health a priority and sought the service of a nutritionist. My nutritionist ShLanda at Balanced By Burton was very knowledgeable and my biggest cheerleader. Her expertise was key to my success and I highly recommend her services. Click Balanced By Burton to reach ShLanda on Facebook and begin your healthy nutrition journey!

Childhood Obesity Awareness Month Followup…

One of our blog followers, Dr. Chris Nagy, commented on our Childhood Obesity Awareness Month post-“…how about the, Let’s Eat Real Food Campaign. Exercise is important, diet is CRITICAL! When we get diet right, many of our health woes will significantly improve. We need to work and improve on both.” We agree with Chris and decided to share additional information on eating real food. Click on link for an introduction to a Real Food Campaign called 10 day Real Food Pledge http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/take-the-10-day-pledge/. Also, view Chris’s video below about a community wellness program he’s starting that incorporates real food.
