Why diets don’t work

    April 16, 2012. That was the day I stopped eating sugar. In fact, that was the day I stopped eating Carbohydrates in most forms. Less than 20 grams a day was the goal to my new Way of Life, and I have been faithful.

    It has come at a price, however. My doctor wanting to know how I was able to lower my cholesterol. Asking me point blank, “Have you been seeing another doctor and what have they been prescribing?” After I told him how I lowered my Triglicerides – Blood Pressure and Cholesterol into the normal ranges through what I have been eating and without any other doctors and medication, he said, “Hum, isn’t that interesting…” That is all he said… 🙁

    There is that, and there are also the issues that I had going on with my eyes. I used to wake up with these puffy and crusty eyes. That was an every day thing. While speaking with clients, I’d notice that they were staring at my eyes in a way more than just wanting to be polite. There was a yellow substance that would start filling the bottom of my eye – between the eye and the eyelid. That stopped… I miss people looking and the constant leaking 🙂

    I also did not have the issues, I have now, with clothing and comfort. My Single Pair of elastic waist band equipped pants did not fall down and I filled them out nicely. In fact, at 355ish, My XXL shirts looked custom made to just “cover” my belly. I was also able to wear my shirts on the “outside”. That was nice because I did not have to worry about wrinkles forming from being tucked in. That has changed too – I now have to wear my shirts tucked in to take up the extra space in my pants – 11″ of waistline girth being reduced does cause problems 🙂

    The other thing that has changed is my foot wear. My shoes no longer feel as if I was poured into them. Now I am faced with having extra lace length. That had never been an issue before.

    There are so many things this change has started in me – Oh, by the way, today I’m 285. I will be starting my 6th month on a High Fat, High Protein – ketogenic eating plan on the 16th of September.

    I know for a fact the difference in this time versus the last times I have tried to lose weight, was just that, I was trying to lose weight. Now, I am losing weight. As Yoda Said, “Try.. Try not, either do or do not…” The other HUGE factor was me talking to myself, sitting down and actually setting the record straight. I said, “If it is not part of the allowed foods – you cannot eat them – you will not eat them – you will go hungry or starve…” I know for a fact I won’t starve. I also know that Willpower is a muscle – exercise that baby. It gets stronger and easier to use, the more you flex it.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
