I was really frustrated about gaining 60 lbs following this program. However, I have seen some health improvements and I feel great about not dieting anymore. I still desire to take off these extra pounds. Weight has always been a struggle for me.
About a month and a half ago I read Jon Gabriel’s book “The Gabriel Method”. I was at first hesitant because I have spent so much money on nutrition information to only feel extremely confused. I’m so glad that I have read it, because it made so much sense to me. He teaches us that there are many factors that cause our body to want to put on weight. It does this to protect us. His method is not about dieting. He incorporates adding healthy foods to our diet while eating the same way we normally would. There is never any calorie counting. He also talks about the importance of working through the emotional and mental issues that have caused our weight gain.
I highly recommend you get a copy of it. I first borrowed a copy from the library. Also, check out his site. Google his name. There is lot of information.
I am down a size in jeans. I don’t weight myself and I don’t count calories. It is really easy. Very peaceable. I spend more time focusing on other things in my life.
I hope this helps you. I wish you the best.
