This post has been hard for me to write. I’ve always been someone who feels that eating right and working out is the way to go to lose weight and be healthy. Unfortunately, after eating really well and working out for two years, I’ve decided to take the plunge and get a little help jumpstarting my weight loss again with Omnitrition.
After talking to my doctor in depth about how my body’s chemistry is so much different than other people, I’ve decided that maybe taking something like the Omni Drops is exactly what my body composition needs. I have heard from a friend and a family member that both said I just needed to work out more or eat right. They don’t live in my body. They aren’t with me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to see how much or what I eat. I really, honestly, feel like I eat healthy; whole foods, whole grains, low sugar. From January through April, I worked out at least 4-5 days a week. What did it do for my scale or clothing size? Nothing. It’s so easy for someone who doesn’t struggle with their weight to pass on advice to those who do struggle and just because you were overweight and something worked for you, doesn’t mean it’s going to work for someone else. We are all different and our bodies are different. Hence while some people can’t eat gluten or eggs or peanut butter.
Omnitrition’s Omni Drops have a strict protocol that needs to be followed in order to gain maximum benefits from the drops. The drops are very similar to HCG drops but they are from a very reputable company and come with a 30 day money back guarantee.
So here I am – day one of the Omni Drops, Phase 2. Phase 1 consisted of eating a high fat diet for two days to help open up your fat cells for the Omni Drops. This morning, I woke up not hungry at all. I was feeling so uncomfortable last night from loading that I went to bed early. I feel like I didn’t get a good nights sleep because of it. It was exciting to start this journey today. I took my drops at 8am (when I woke) and at 10:00 I made the Strawberry Smoothie for breakfast, although I’d call it more of a Strawberry Slushy.
At noon I was starved and couldn’t wait to eat lunch. 4oz ground beef, 1oz onion and 3oz lettuce. I added chili powder to my ground beef and when it was cooked added a bit of water to make a “dressing” to add to my lettuce. It was good although I was missing my cabot cheese.
The next five hours went by soooo slow. I was so hungry when 5pm hit and couldn’t wait to cook dinner. We had cabbage and hamburg. I measured out my 4oz of hamburg when I came home from the grocery store earlier this week and that helped with portion. I measured out 4oz of cabbage and set that aside. I then cooked the rest of my family’s meal – the rest of the cabbage plus a pound of regular hamburg for them. In a different pot I cooked my hamburg and then sauteed the cabbage with the hamburg in a bit of water. It steamed the cabbage. I added in some pepper and sea salt and then decided to put a minced garlic clove in with it. OMG it was so good. We have this from time to time but never with the garlic.
For dessert I decided to microwave a chopped apple sprinkled with cinnamon and allspice. I then crumbled up a wasa cracker and mixed that in. Yummy! Just the thing to end my day of eating. Oh, and I got my gallon of water in (minus the 1/2 of the glass I still need to finish drinking).
