BDW Biggest Loser ~ Season 10!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

I went to see my Naturopathic Doctor today and asked her about the ACV.  She said that it can have benefits, and she does recommend it to some patients, but that it can also be very harsh on your system (especially if you have ulcers or other stomach issues).  Her suggestion for me was to take half a lemon and squeeze the juice into a hot mug of water first thing in the morning and to drink this before breakfast.  This will act as a bit of a liver detox, stimulate my metabolism, and give many of the same benefits as the ACV without being so harsh.  It also clears the skin as part of the liver detox and doesn't taste as bad.

 

In any case, just thought I would share in case anyone else might have concerns about the ACV, or feel that option might not be suitable for them.  I'm going to try the lemon and see what happens.

 

Other recommendations included green tea, Fish oil, B6 supplements, a complete probiotic supplement, and lots of fibre.

Oryx - Thanks for letting us know =] I drink green tea daily, so I'm glad to hear the benefits from a specialist. I drink lemon in my water in the mornings too, but does it have to be hot? I usually drink it in cold water, but wonder if it makes a difference what the temperature of the water is.

 

 

thanks again!

shoot I just got back from the grocery store - I wish I had read this before I left so I could have picked up some lemons!  I like that option much better than the ACV.  I tried it but couldn't handle the taste.  Thanks for the info Oryx.

I have actually heard about the lemon in hot water I'm going to try it tomorrow.  I guess I should go buy some fish oil tablets also.  Thanks for the tips !!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

No problem!  I'm sure everything works differently for everyone, so it's nice to have options.  I'm e-mailing her to ask about whether the cold water works just as well as hot for the lemon water.

Here is what she said about the cold water: It can be either between room temperature or as hot as you can handle. Not cold, however.

 

She didn't say anything about lime... I'll ask her.

 

It's funny -- I have one friend who is a Naturopathic Doctor, and my best friend is a Clinical Dietitian.  You'd think I'd have an easy time losing weight by having such good resources and learning everything I need to do and just following it... but knowing what to do and sticking with it are definitely two different things.

 

I hope everyone has had a good week!  I think I did alright, but camping may have ruined my weigh-in for tomorrow.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
