Also, her love of hooping has turned into a business!  She now makes customs hoops which you can special order from RubyHooping! The best part about hula hooping is that it’s so much fun, it doesn’t even feel like exercise.
My mindset on that started to change at the beginning of this year, when I joined a gym and started working out five days a week. So, that little flicker in the back of my mind of becoming a hula hoop girl started to slowly grow. So to make a long story short, I went home and got on Google and started reading everything I could get my hands on about hula hoops. I was, of course, pleased to also find that hula hooping helps you lose weight and tones your midsection like nobody’s business.
Also, I have received so many wonderful compliments about how small my waist is since I’ve been hula hooping. Honestly, hula hooping is the only form of exercise aside from yoga that has ever ignited this kind of passion within me. Just spend a few minutes on Youtube watching hooping videos, and you’ll quickly realize how hula hooping can keep your interest for a very long time. I truly hope this blog post has inspired many of you fitness-conscious plus size women out there like me to give hula hooping a try. At any rate,  I was quite surprised to see that the Engine 2 Diet is a plant based diet, in other words no beef or meat of any kind. The Engine 2 Diet was created by firefighter Rip Esselstyn to assist members of his Austin, Texas fire department to get back into shape.  Vegetarians don’t normally impress me much, as I see a lot of vegetarian junk food being eaten.  Coke and fries may not have meat, but that is not a meal!
There are two phases of the program, you can do the ‘firefighter’ version and go all in, or you can do the ‘fire cadet’ version and ease into this new way of eating.  Either way, the dieter is encouraged to have their bloodwork checked and go on their 28 day challenge and then recheck the bloodwork.
Unless you are really committed to a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, this is hard to stick to.
Interestingly, my own son has been a vegetarian for 7 years and he is strong and healthy.  He is an air cadet and goes on weekend survival trips and just does not eat meat for ethical reasons. The book outlines the 28 Day Challenge and has many recipes.  There are also some online resources out there on Facebook and Pinterest to keep you motivated. Green Coffee beans are flying off the shelves both literally and in a cyber sense.  It seems that anything mentioned on the Dr. This diet is a long time ‘weigh and pay’ program, having been around for 35 years.  It is a very low calorie, medically supervised plan that promises (and delivers) rapid weight loss.
I honestly do not know how you can maintain muscle mass without exercise but this is their claim. I would love to hear people’s experience with this one.  Did you go through this program and successfully keep the weight off?
There is a caloric cycling element to this diet (although no calories are counted), so it’s more like a nutrient cycling. Counting calories or not, on the Phase 1 and Phase 2 days, the calories are very, very  low.
But certainly I feel this one is worth a try and I would love to hear from people who have done it.  How did you find the switching from phase to phase? You will follow Cycle 3 during the week and eat a wider variety of foods on the weekend, foods not normally eaten by dieters!
The Omni Diet has been ‘scientifically designed’ by Tana Amen, BSN,RN to help you lose up to 12 pounds in 2 weeks. The book The Omni Diet: The Revolutionary 70% PLANT + 30% PROTEIN Program to Lose Weight, Reverse Disease, Fight Inflammation, and Change Your Life Forever is available on Amazon. So basically the plan is that you eat like a gorilla.  Did anybody over there bother to Google the phrase “What do Gorilla’s eat?’ ? Gorilla’s eat greens, with maybe a few insects that happen to be on the leaves.  In fact, in my hometown of Vancouver, BC we have a restaurant called Gorilla Food which is a raw, vegan restaurant.
So far I’m confused about this diet!  But let’s continue on, because I am nothing if not persistent!
On the Omni Diet you try to aim for 70% plant food and 30% protein.  There is no dairy, sugar, grain, processed food, alcohol, soy, corn, pasta and all those other refined and processed foods we should not eat! So while I seem to be stuck on this whole Gorilla thing, take that away and I like the eating plan itself. In fact, I did not realize until I was looking at their books on Amazon that I actually own three of Dr. The Visalus Weight Loss program is probably best known as being one of the first weight loss companies to use Social Media to take their program viral.
For the diet itself, it is a meal replacement program that happens to have one great tasting shake mix along with product kits that are chosen depending on your goals. Transformation Kit: 2 meals a day, energy drinks, metabolism booster and hunger control for people who are wanting to lose more than 20 pounds. The shake mix is probably one of the best I have ever tasted.  When I first heard that there was only one flavor I was disappointed but then w hen I started to try some of their recipes I was impressed by the way I could keep it interesting and have a different shake every day!
Distributors will want you to go on a monthly shipment plan, but most will let you buy with cash as needed.
This diet works as a meal replacement program, offering cookies, muffins and bars as a meal replacement in the same way many other programs offer shakes. The cookies are low calorie, around 100 calories, therefore this diet works because it is a calorie restricted diet. How much you lose and how quickly will be determined by how many meals and snacks you replace.  Many people will replace 2 meals a day plus snacks for the at least the first week to kick up their weight loss, then switch to replacing one meal per day. A recent look at 87 long term studies have proven that when it comes to burning body fat, reducing your carb intake DOES work best.
I went from near sobbing fits over my computer not working properly to hysterical laughter at the thought of even undertaking such an experiment.
You see, your brain NEEDS carbs just to function properly so doing without any at all was an extreme example of how your body does need to get some carbs to function.
So how can you burn fat using low carb diet plan WITHOUT worrying about whether you'll be fitted for a straight jacket? This is a little twist I've created that allows you to EASILY reduce the WRONG kind of carbs WITHOUT counting calories and NEVER going hungry. You see, you need more carbs on training days to help your muscles recover from your exercise. I know this is a very different way of looking at the food you eat and doesn't really follow the normal "low carb" pattern.
First, the theory behind LCHF diets: By restricting carbs you force your muscles to burn more calories from fat and less from carbs during exercise, thus ‘sparing’ valuable glycogen stores and allowing you to exercise longer before experiencing fatigue. Indeed, studies have indicated that the body adapts to LCHF diets by producing more fat-burning enzymes (such as hormone sensitive lipase) although the jury is still out as to whether this translates into superior performance in events. So, while a low carb diet may be useful if you’re trying to drop weight or if you’re focusing mainly on high volumes of low to moderate intensity training, it is not useful for training at high intensities (usually defined as anything over lactate threshold). An evidence-based sports nutrition guide and recipe book rolled into one, Food for Fitness dispels popular myths and gives you the tools you need to reach your maximum performance. For me, nothing beats a gorgeous rib-eye or sirloin steak, cooked so that the meat is rare but the fat is translucent and brown on top.
When eating out, desserts are usually off-limits for obvious reasons, so let’s thank the French for introducing the custom of finishing a meal with a cheese course. Low carb high fat means you don’t have to follow that cliched advice of removing skin from poultry, and chicken does taste so much better for it!
So we can’t have traditional sugary desserts when on a low-carb diet, but who cares when we can have double cream instead!
Duck breasts are another example of a food that is clearly meant to be eaten with skin on – discarding it makes the whole experience plummet dramatically. Egg yolks are obviously an integral part of the egg, and in my opinion much more fun than the whites! I realise that this post is a shameless ode to fat, and reading it alone is probably enough to give a heart attack to a low-fat advocate.


LCHF works if you are very strict keeping your carbs low – then you can indulge in having high fat foods. LCHF suppresses appetite so although you would eat high-calorie, high-fat foods, you would be likely to consume less calories overall. When on strict LCHF, your body will eventually switch into ketosis, and start burning fat for fuel instead of carbs. By the way, in less than a year on this diet, I have lost 130 pounds, dropped all three blood pressure meds I was on, and gained such good control of my blood sugar, that I now have a lower A1C than many healthy, no diabetic people.
This small dish contains 15 grams of protein that can make you feel full & energized for longer. Because whipped cream cheese contains more air, so it has fewer calories each scoop than the regular cream. You just need to microwave this light snack for some seconds, and you will get the Italian nachos with enough proteinA & fiber to keep you over until the next meal.
The antioxidants found in this fruit may boost your brainpower & even help you obtain your weight loss goals. Because edamame is packed with protein, so it may satisfy your appetite like almonds and other nuts. The chia snack pack is made solely from coconut milk, chia seeds, and blueberries, so it has fewer processed ingredients and less sugar than most flavored yogurts.
VKool encourages comments, but please remember: Play nice, keep it clean, stay on-topic, and avoid promotional content. So I have started calling her Hula Hoop Girl, but even luckier for you, I convinced her to write about it here for you guys!!
I love talking about the many health benefits of hula hooping, but I’m especially happy about this opportunity to talk specifically about plus size women and hula hooping.
I knew a few girls in my greater circle of acquaintances that were hula hoop girls, and I always thought that the many dance moves you can perform with a hula hoop were fascinatingly beautiful. It only took a few weeks of that for the endorphins to start kicking in, and I could already feel my body responding well to the exercise. Then one day, I was browsing through a department store on my lunch hour and happened to walk past a glittering display of hula hoops in a rainbow of colors. I have never been happy with the way my middle looks or feels, but ever since I started hula hooping, I notice more and more each day that I am enjoying how my hips and stomach feel strong and tight when I walk, and I actually like my reflection in the mirror. Don’t do like I did for so long and dismiss it as an exercise not suitable for your body type.
That averages about 20 pounds plus per month!  Those results are astounding, but you do pay for them.  I spoke to a friend of mine who is currently doing this plan and she is paying over $1000 a month.
I suspect that because it is so low calorie (about 800 calories a day) they may want to protect you from passing out!
Bernstein, however it occurred to me that they would be more useful and affordable for most people and they have excellent reviews! Oz, complete with an A list  celebrity clientele.  (I think I should create a category for this site for those diets featured by Dr. On the Cycle 2 days you can have natural starches such as yams.  You can also have more variety of protein such as pork.
Honestly, we eat way too much of all that processed crap and a diet like this can get you back to what real food is.  Tana Amen had great credentials as does her husband ( a brain doctor no less!) and they also have other books and supplements you can check out. For use with the Formula One Diet Plan, Includes Allowable Foods List, Basic Diet Instructions Guide & Our Top Rated Customer Service. But overall, the program he has published and promotes is called The Primal Blueprint.  This program encompasses a whole series of products and services ranging from his blog to supplements and even hosting retreats and conventions for the primal lifestyle. Now YOU can have the lean, sexy body you've always wanted by using the same exact strategies used by the MEN AND WOMEN of the world's finest military units! Many people also experience a (desirable) drop in body weight and body fat, which is regarded as advantageous in most sports.
Well, if you’re more interested in high intensity performance as opposed to long distance low-moderate intensity training, then LCHF diets will not help your quest for gold. Eight competitive mountain bikers were placed on either a low carb high fat diet (15% carbs, 70% fat, 15% protein) or a balanced diet (50% carb, 30% fat, 20% protein) for four weeks in random order. I could literally have this every day, it would make me very happy (maybe one day when I am rich and own a cattle farm). I prefer mine unsmoked and have a rather idiosyncratic method of cooking it in the oven – it takes much longer than frying or grilling, but is well worth the wait. Many British restaurants now include this option to their dessert menus, and there are plenty of British cheeses that can rival their continental counterparts. Double cream plus a bit of sweetener forms a base of many low-carb sugar-free desserts, and definitely fills the void. When on LCHF you don’t have to put up with any nonsense that advises you to discard the yolks and have just the whites. If you are not bothering to restrict carbs, then eating extra fat as described above is likely to lead to weight gain. Weight loss rate varies by individual, but keto diets work much faster than other types of diets, so hopefully you will notice the changes very soon.
Per serving (including one oz of lox with one Pepperidge farm English muffin) is packed with 15 g protein, 160 cal, 2 g fat, 740 mg sodium, 1 g sugar, and 1 g fiber. Therefore, you should skip high-fat chips & munch, and this homemade veggie version can instead. Per serving (including 1 tbsp of chunky salsa, 10 baked Tostitos scoop chips, and 1 tbsp of reduced fat Kraft parmesan cheese) is packed with 3 g protein, 110 cal, A 2 g fat, 310 mg sodium, 1 g sugar, and 2 g fiber. In addition, because it is richer than milk chocolate, so you can eat it to satisfy your cocoa craving.
Per serving (including 6 oz of blueberry chia pod) is packed with 130 cal, 10 g fat (5 grams sat), 3 g protein, 5 g sugar, and 7 g fiber. After reading the writing of 11 best healthy low calorie snacks for weight loss to choose from, hope that this writing helps you get more choices to change your actual food menu for good. But I couldn’t even get the hoop to go around my waist more than once before it crashed to the ground. I grabbed one in a courageous impulse and gleefully raced back to my office to try the hoop out. Even though I am still a curvy, thick woman, my body looks and feels so much more fit than it ever has, largely thanks to hula hooping. There is something very calming and relaxing about the rhythm of the hoop rotating around you. The truth is, hula hooping is perfect for plus size fitness, and it will inspire you in ways you never dreamed of before. I checked the ingredients and they look really good, especially compared to other shake mixes.  Definitely worth a look and the cost works out to less than $2 per serving. Those following the low-carb diet became leaner than those on the balanced diet (11% body fat vs 14.9%). Rib of beef is another favourite – basically a gigantic rib-eye joint – lots of fat and utterly delicious (read more on roasting beef). Put bacon rashers on a roasting tray, add a couple of spoons of water, stick it in a very hot oven for 10 mins or so, then turn it down to about Gas Mark 4 and roast for another 30 mins.
For the simplest option, whip up some double cream with sweetener and unsweetened cocoa powder. Use it for frying, spread it on low-carb bread, make gorgeous sauces like hollandaise, add it to boiled vegetables to give them some extra oomph. However, it does taste better when the skin is crispy, so make some criss-cross scores on the skin and gently fry duck breasts skin-down for about 5-10 minutes, spooning the fat out of the pan.
Per serving (including A 1 cup kale chips) is packed with 80 cal, 5 g fat (0.5 gram sat), 2 g protein, 230 mg sodium, and 2 g fiber. You just need to spread each square of dark chocolate with 2 teaspoons unsalted almond butter for a healthier snack habit.

I figured hula hooping was not something that plus size women like me could do successfully.
I suddenly became aware for the first time in my life that I could indeed be a fit woman while still being plus size, and that my weight did not have to be the barrier that I was allowing it to be in my life. I was disappointed to find that, as I’d suspected, I couldn’t keep the hoop going for more than a couple of rotations. I never have to force myself to hula hoop, as I sometimes have to force myself to go to the gym. And there’s just nothing else in the world that makes me feel the way I do when I am dancing with my hoop.
When you are hula hooping, you’re not thinking about how you’re going to pay your bills or what to make for dinner.
Your muscles cannot generate enough ATP (“energy”) per minute from just fat to keep pace with demand. But the fat loss that the athletes experienced on the low-carb diet was associated with a significant drop in performance.
Atkins, Keto) are also high in fat, allowing the most indulgent and hedonistic meals while still losing weight. Lamb shoulder or neck and pork belly also have plenty of fat – I think the best method for those is slow-cooking. Then stick them in the oven for another 10-20 minutes (depending on whether you like them pink or well-done). Bone marrow is basically fat but it tastes utterly delicious and absolutely melts in your mouth. If you have any question, or you discover other healthy low calorie snacks for weight loss, please leave them below.
Within just a few days, I was able to keep the hoop going indefinitely and felt ready to start thinking about learning some basic hula hoop tricks. And because there are so many things you can learn to do with your hoop, it can take many years to become a true hooping master. Pick a song I love, design a routine to it, and then it’s just me and my hoop, celebrating the swing of my hips and the elegance of my curves. On the balanced diet, the subjects managed 257 watts at lactate threshold intensity and 362 watts during a 15-minute maximal effort. This post focuses on gorgeous low-carb high-fat (LCHF) foods – let’s count our blessings and rejoice!
Finally, I always keep my eyes open for any hog roast stands– tender pork meat with some crackling, ooh – I have in the past attended music festivals just so that I can get to eat some hog roast. Finally, if you can’t be bothered to do any of that, you can always get a ready-made roast chicken from a rotisserie.
This writing is a collection of top delicious and healthy foods for weight loss from reliable sources. I now had the confidence to truly know that I could teach my body how to hula hoop and become the lovely hula hoop girl I dreamed of being. However, it is not intended to give medical advice and it is solely for the informational purpose. These days, many doctors and other health professionals recommend meditation on a regular basis for reduced stress and anxiety. What’s more, high intensity exercise actually suppresses fat breakdown (lipolysis), making exercise feel much harder.
According to the study authors, the cause of the decline on the low-carb diet was impairment of the muscles’ ability to burn carbs, which is critical to performance at higher intensities. Many have the same information and ground rules, although each site will tweak the concept for what works for THEM. Clearing your mind and allowing it to rest regularly makes it easier to handle all the stuff life throws at you each and every day. In other words, high-intensity training on a LCHF diet feels an awful lot harder than training on a higher carb intake.
So when you hoop, you’re not only getting your body in shape, but you’re improving your mental health, as well!
The basic principles are to combine a restricted calorie diet, aiming for weight (fat) loss, with a high protein diet, to maintain and build muscle mass. This ensures that your body is always kept guessing and optimises your fat burning and muscle building. This was because it works with my training much better than a random cycle, because I like to train on the same days each week. I know that it is the only way you can truly lose weight extremely fast and get to the holy grail of 4% body fat, but I am not a bodybuilder and within my current lifestyle I often don’t have time to fit in any more exercise than my lifting splits above.
They take priority.However, what this does mean is that this whole experiment will be a true test of the effect that diet alone has on your body shape. I may also alter my training days to coincide with a 3 or 4 day cycle for the same reasons, such is the beauty of the diet plan.Personal Daily LimitsIn terms of where I have set my personal carbohydrate and protein limits for each type of day, it is all relevant to my starting weight and basal metabolic rate (BMR). I then utilised the Harris Benedict Formula to determine my true daily BMR based on how much exercise I do a week.
Some encourage more carbs, some encourage less protein and the calorie total is simply based on the fact that we do need a percentage reduction from my BMR in order to lose weight and expend more calories overall than we are consuming.All these figures are subject to change based on how the diet is going and my body is responding. As Maximuscle are sponsoring the project, they are providing us with the right supplements in order to help achieve our goals.
Fast acting whey protein, BCAAs and a whole host of other ingredients should help ensure I keep as much muscle mass as possible. They are packed full of high quality carbohydrates and calories, so they are strictly for use on high carb days, but also contain 22g of protein per bar AND a healthy dose of CLAs and creatine. The casein ensures the nutrients within the shake are released slowly over time, almost like drip feeding your muscles consistently. As you can imagine, this is great during the night when your body grows the most and you are in starvation mode. I wanted to try Thermobol as I have always heard good reviews about it from magazines, friends and the like. I am not expecting miracles, but I am hoping the blend will help increase my fat burning potential and I will even be able use them just before training as a type of pre-workout pill (due to it containing caffeine amongst other things). The only days where I felt I could eat more food were the no carb days, and generally my work kept me busy enough that it was a non-issue. That is one way that a cycling program such as this can help you stick to the diet.On low (200g of carbs) and high (300-350g of carbs) I actually felt full most of the time. I’ve been training 4 years but the diet has always let me down so hopefully this will change that!Could you list a few other foods you ate a lot of during the program which are not listed in the article if there were any please?
Great article.I’ve calculated both my protein and varying carb levels based on my bodyweight in pounds but how do I work out my daily fat allowance?Also, on low and no carb days, should I be increasing my Protein and fat intake to compensate for the lack of carbs and always hit my recommended calories ?
Just had a question around your level of carbs – in the article you have low days as no more than 95g. However given that I am a dad of two boys, busy at work, frequent traveler and married to a Greek who loves food, how do you see life post-diet? Given my personal circumstances I would probably find it difficult maintaining the regime as my lifestyle. I’m following your diet and work out routin, but I can’t see any where your abs exersice! My chest and arms are much better now, but still I’m suffering with my mid section, so can you please advise what should I do?
