Big deep breaths in through your nose, and out through your mouth slowly. That's how you relax and relieve the stress build up that causes the release of the hormone cortizone, causing that middle belly fat. Calories need oxygen to up-the-burn in your metabolism.

Your calories are distributed in the body for certain functions daily. Here's the break down:
75% basic needs
10% digestion
15% activity ( or lack of, stores it in empty fat cells)
100% percent of what you eat is your choice, do the right thing, and use up the 15% for spending time just moving around more than usual. Who wants to take the advice of a fat person? Me, I am trying to remind myself out loud, how quickly I forget my own suggestions.

do & don't

I feel limited with this blog, only able to post about once a month. My low-carb diet is working when I work it. I usually only use it for a few days at a time, have my free days to eat my fruits, vegetables, and any craving that arises. It usually takes two days to get back in the so called "zone." I should follow the rules and do it for weeks at a time but I can't get use to the restrictions. I say whatever works for you, go for it! I have such a long way to go and years and years of built up bad habits, so what's a few more years matter to be able to change all the unhealthy eating and the sedentary life style? Since I started in around May the fifth, I have lost ten pounds. Don't give me any accolades, I almost regained my last sixty pound lost a couple of years ago.
