The scale eventually stopped moving for me. I was still exercising a minimum of 3 days a week and trying to track my calories. Still craving sugar like crazy and giving in at times. The Holidays hit me hard and I found myself falling off the dietary wagon with a hard thud. It was time to try something new.
My younger sister was doing Atkins but I knew I was far too active to simply cut myself down to 20 carbohydrates a day. Instead I started by decreasing my carbohydrate intake to no more than 100 grams a day. This helped me to gradually ease into ketosis without feeling like I had suddenly been hit by the diet truck. Now I’m cycling my carbohydrates based on my energy requirements for the day. I stay under 90 grams on exercise days and under 60 grams on non-exercise. Guess what? The scale has finally started moving again and I am now under 240 lbs (110 Kg) for the first time in years.
I’m still Thriving every day–the B vitamins keep me energized while the pre & Probiotics keep my gut in tip top shape. The link to learn more about the Thrive experience is below.
I found Thrive by Le-Vel when my Facebook feed started to periodically have postings from a person who was clearly in love with this product. I would frequently roll my eyes as I scrolled by her posts about having more energy, making it through her workouts more readily, sleeping better at night and even having increased mood.
I obtained a little 3 day “mini Thrive experience” package from her. I approached the product through my usual skepticism, but boy was I impressed! The best part is that this is not one of those ridiculous meal replacement systems. This is a nutritional supplement system that leaves you feeling great! You can learn more about Thrive here: Le-Vel
