Dear Madame secretary;
I saw your picture in the tabloids the other day with the headline,
“HILARY TOPS OUT AT 250 POUNDS”
showing the worst possible picture of you with heavy bags under your eyes. I just shrugged it off as photoshopped junk. Then I saw you in the debate and noticed that it may not be 250 but definitely gaining.
I know that you are stressed, who wouldn’t be? But girl seriously you have got to get some of that weight off! Please don’t be offended you know I am only looking out for your best interest. I know the negative effects that stress can have on ones mind and body. I’m here to show you how to make it work for you.
I broke my little toe a few weeks ago, and because I know that it would not do me any good to go to the emergency room or a doctors visit because what will they do? Take an xray and say “YEP you broke your toe” It cannot be casted or splinted. The only treatment is immobilize it with a good pair of shoes, ice and ibuprofen until it heals. Oh yes one more thing, REST it. That poses a problem for me. As walking is my main calorie burner. I could still go to the gym, but the pain makes me not want to do anything. I could go on about how my pain is nothing compared to those that I serve in my job as a Hospice nurse, but let it suffice to say I am grateful for my broken toe because I know that it will heal and I will be back on my feet in a couple of weeks.
So let me tell you Hil, what I did. I had to create an even greater caloric deficit. The best way to do that is with protein. Protein is a natural appetite suppressant and also help to burn calories through a process called gluconeogenesis, it is all very scientific and slightly rocket science but it works like a dream. In fact a lot of it happens while you are sleeping so it is important to get a good nights sleep.
I happened to have just purchased by mistake what could possibly be a lifetime supply of a super great protein drink. It is balanced with just the right amount of whey, cassein and milk to make it the best on the market. Two scoops provided 27 gms of protein and only 150 calories if you don’t add anything else. So I thought perfect! I will use this through my recovery as I know that protein is the major building block of cells and tissue repair so faster healing right? Makes total sense.
First ditch the sugar. You simply must. I know it is a comfort during these stressful times but it is so detrimental to your overall health.
Extend your fast a bit. This is especially good for battling insulin resistance and it also creates a new brain pathway of only eating when you are hungry.
Start your day off with protein.
I drink 2 shakes a day and then maybe some protein in the form of chicken, egg or tuna for one meal. Always include the green leafy carbs for a good vitamin B source which is essential in the synthesis of protein. It is carbs secret weapon. An easy way to remember what are the good carbs is “if it is a leaf eat it.” Other high vitamin b sources are, asparagus, brussels sprouts, chickpeas, lentils, beets, broccoli cauliflower and peas. Are you seeing a pattern here?
These are all whole foods that are good for you.
No MORE JUNK!!
With the help of these protein shakes and my secret carb weapon of green leafy veggies and other yummy foods listed above I have been able to keep my weight the same and possibly lose a couple pounds by the end of the 6 weeks of rest it takes to properly grow back a bone.
A presidential candidate needs to be in good health now and for the next four years.
So girl PLEASE clean up you act now and then keep it maintained with my Happy Weight loss course.
