So, I have been quite busy getting things together. I realize that I have not posted in quite some time and I want to change that today. I hope you guys know that you can always reach me on face-book and you can track my weight loss updates on my you-tube channel here.
I want to take this time to answer some questions that I get quite frequently regarding my diet plan and weight loss. If after reading this post you still have questions, please feel free to comment below.
Q and A with Jay!
Are you on Atkins?
While I am not on Atkins, I do follow a low carb lifestyle. I had a hard time staying on the regit Atkins Induction program. So, now I eat between 25 and 30 carbs daily and I am seeing amazing results.
How much weight have you lost so far?
To date, I have lost a total of 30lbs!
Why don’t you list the nutritional information for your recipes?
In the beginning when I did list the nutritional values, I would get comments from readers questioning the carb count of the recipes. Carb count can fluctuate based on the food brand that I use versus the food brands my readers use. I would have to spend time breaking down each ingredient by carb count to show how I achieve the final number. As you can imagine, this was quite a tedious task for me. I now realize that this information is vital to many of you on a restrictive diet. So, I am working on getting the counts for each recipe added and in the future all recipes will be published with the nutritional information attached to them.
How has your health improved since doing low carb?
Since doing low carb I have seen amazing results with my health.
1. I know longer have diabetes.It is controlled with my diet.
2. I lowered my cholesterol by 30 points. That is right people, eating fat does NOT make you fat! It gets you healthy!
3. I have so much more energy!
4. PCOS and issues associated with this health syndrome, are no longer an issue for me.
Do you exercise?
Yes! Exercise to me goes hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle. I try to go to the GYM 5 days per week. I do 30 minutes of cardio and every other day I do strength training along with the cardio.
How much more weight do you need to lose to reach your goal?
My goal weight is 140lbs. I have 95 more pounds to lose, and I am working on doing that this year. Feel free to follow my journey here.
When will you make more recipes?
I have so many goodies to show you guys, I am constantly writing and creating new recipes. I love cooking and I am always excited to share my recipes. I am reorganizing this blog before I start cooking again. I should have a recipe video up really soon.
I notice that you have not done a podcast in quite sometime, are you still doing them?
Yes! I am working on getting that organized too.
Do you have any advise for someone who is just starting on a weight loss plan?
I am so flattered by this question, so here is my advise I say these words to myself daily- NEVER GIVE UP!
I love you guys and I thank you for reading my blog and for the support I receive daily.
