"A Second Opinion"  

The Maintenance Diet

(Including  information on "i26 Complete Support") 

 

The time has come, you have finally (although it took far less time than you could have imagined) lost all of the weight that you desire:

Ideal weight for women equals 100 pounds for the first 5 feet and then 5 pounds for every inch of height over that (not including up to an additional 10 pounds for larger frames and up to an additional 10 pounds for extreme muscle mass)

The ideal weight for men is 110 for the first 5 feet and then 5 pounds for every inch of height over that (not including and extra 10 pounds for larger frames and and an additional 10 pounds for extreme muscle mass)

However, in reality, whatever weight loss it takes to make you feel delighted with your body structure and heath priorities is your ideal weight:

To digress:

You have given up quite a few things to adhere to the Second Opinion Diet/ Lifestyle Adjustment Plan:

I am sure you realize by now, that sugars and carbohydrates are of very little importance, but you have had to give up some very healthful foods because they were full of carbs and/or sugar.

This is still a life long diet...but the time has come to begin to add (with great discretion) additional carbs and even sugars: Keep carbohydrates between 50 and 100 grams and add only natural sugars. Make healthy decisions (worth the addition) like some sweet fruits and starchy vegetables that, although very healthy, could previously not be consumed on the Second Opinion intensive weight loss diet:

In addition to the worlds most healthful protein/ fiber recovery drink "Fit", including i26, there is yet another health alternative i26 shake which offers 100% of the daily requirements for vitamins and minerals, comes in 3 delicios flavors, and one serving of i26 per scoop (one or both can be taken daily)

This product is i26 "Complete Support" and is of tremendous importance (the reason it was not suggested in the original diet is because it contains 12 grams of carbohydrates and 10 grams of sugar) that you can now (if you choose) add to your diet, as long as you can maintain your desired weight:

Another highly recommended book dealing with a total  health and weight maintenance program (written by my good friend and Respiratory buddy...Stanley Bryant and myself is "A Prescription for Wellness".

I am sure that you will find it very informative and inspirational:

Prescription for Wellness

 By Stanley Bryant, Glenn Obst

Paperback and Download: 

Prescription for Wellness
 

 

Your Prescription for Wellness contains the information that you need to develop an individually and personalized meal plans (proper eating techniques), not just some generic diet plan, as well as why many people fail. There are millions of diet books available on the market, but the reality is that you don’t need them. The diet plans that ship you the food that you eat for the month (kind of) have the right idea, but the facts are that they are expensive and you can do it better than having someone do it for you. Your Prescription for Wellness will teach you to stylize an effective program for a lifelong plan to optimize your health and to stay trim. It is your responsibility to provide your body with the means to survive and to thrive. This can only be accomplished by providing the required nutrients (vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids, antioxidants etc) and by not overburdening the body with harmful products which subvert its functioning (i.e. excess fats, simple sugars etc.).
