Syntrax makes an All Natural Thermogenic called Fyre. They suggested I try it on my gluten free weight loss diet, so they threw in some samples with my Nectar Protein. Being all-natural, it is gluten free.
I have always been very skeptical of any “fat burner” in the past, so I had very low expectations for this. I can drink all the caffeene in the world as a bed-time snack and sleep like a baby. So, I couldn’t imagine anything having an affect on me.
The first day, I figured out quickly, that I had to moderate my dosage! The first day, I took two pills about 7 hours before I wanted to go to sleep…. I was up all night! I was awake and wired all night! Didn’t even consider trying to go to sleep! This is the first product that I could tell worked.
It is tough to say if I lost any weight because of it, but when taking it, I felt great and wide awake, so it must by hyping me up. I got much more work done than usual and just felt good. I continued taking one pill 3 times per day before meals.
I would/will purchase Fyre again. Despite helping me lose weight, it just made me feel wide awake. It wasn’t a bad or jittery feeling, just a revitalized type of feeling.
Fyre is for sale on the Boosters4Health site. You can use coupon code: MH3090 to get 40% off of your purchase on that site.
It is relatively inexpensive, with the 40% off, compared to other thermogenic products and I can verify that it works! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Do diets always consist of boring and bland food? NO!
There is no way I could stick with a diet if I couldn’t still eat foods that taste good and eat a variety of foods. Especially in the beginning, I have stuck to 45% protein, 35% carbs, and 20% fats in each meal. My daily total of calories started at 2300 and has slowly dropped to around 1800-1900 calories per day.
I do eat a lot of boring and bland foods, because they are quick and easy to make, but I usually have one “good” meal each day which takes a little more time and preparation. Below, is a photo gallery of some of the “good” meals I have made. Each one sticks pretty close to the nutritional breakdown of 45/35/20. Some of these meals I portion out and save some for later.
I try and use any kind of sauce or dressing in moderation… something that is new to me. Wild Thymes and San J have a wide variety of sauces that help keep my meals interesting.
I don’t have any photos of my breakfasts, because those are usually the boring ones. I usually have 2 whole eggs, 4 egg whites, a red potato(or brown rice), and some vegetables(onions and green peppers).
You will even see some fried chicken! Believe it or not, with the chicken, corn meal, eggs, and olive oil, the nutritional facts are pretty much perfect. I may be a little over on the oil sometime, but I am usually lacking in my fats each day.
No, I didn’t drink the Redbridge beer… that was only put there for the effect.
My weight fluctuates so much every day! Seriously, I can change 5 pounds, up or down, every day. It really drives me nuts during my diet! I know I’m not supposed weigh myself every day, but I do it anyway before getting in the shower. A lot of things play into this: salt/water intake, cheat meals, and ya know… going #2.
2 Quick Points:
Start you diet after your temptation days! I started my diet on a Friday(just because Jan 1st fell on a Monday). Never again! After I weigh in on a Friday morning and see that I have lost weight, I subconsciously think that I can cheat over the weekend, since I have seven more days to make up for it. For example, I weighed in last Friday at 201. On Tuesday, I was 206! Now, the whole week, comprar viagra generico, I am fighting just to get back to 201 and then praying that I am slightly lower by Friday morning. I hate this and am sick and tired of it. No more! I am now treating every day like I day I have to weigh in.
Treat every day as if you are getting on the scale that next morning! No cheat meals, no big portions, no more “it will be OK by Friday.” I realize weight will fluctuate a little every day, but I’m not allowing it to do so more than a pound or two. Cardio every day! I used to take the weekend off of cardio and pack it into the end of the week. Real weight loss doesn’t work like that! Every day! Every day! Every day!
Thankfully, I lost some weight this week! 2lbs! I’m very happy with this! Coming off a week where I didn’t lose anything, I stepped up my diet a little and kept a better eye on it. 203 to 201- Started at 220.
I was really worried about this week, since I went back home to my parents house Friday to Monday. I saw a lot of old friends, and most of those meetings revolved around food and alcohol. I didn’t drink much at all, but I can’t say the same about eat. It seems we always go to my favorite places when back home. The type of food and especially potions are not diet food material.
I’m happy with losing 2lbs per week at this stage in the diet. Next week I HAVE to lose at least 2 more, which puts me under 200lbs!!! I haven’t been under 200lbs since I started college.
I’m disappointed in myself. I didn’t lose any weight this week- stuck at 203. My goal was to hit 200lbs this week.
I think I have lost some dedication to the diet. I’m a firm believer that eating healthy and exercising should be a lifestyle change and not just a “diet” determined by a time period. Recently, I have stopped counting every calorie and eating my meals at a certain time. Maybe I was premature to think I could handle my new lifestyle without writing everything down and counting every calorie.
I wouldn’t say I have lost motivation, but I have gotten off track a little.
I also believe that around 200lbs is the end of my “easy” weight loss. Each pound from here forward will be harder, but it will be real weight. No more easy water weight losses, only real weight.
I may have to go back to my old routine of counting calories and every nutritional fact. Once I make it to my goal, then I can try going back to a “lifestyle” instead of a tracked “diet.”
I lost 2 pounds this week! 205 to 203(Started at 220). I’m happy with this. This puts me in a good position to hit 200lbs at the end of week 6, which would leave me with 10 more pounds to lost in the remaining six weeks of my diet.
There isn’t much to say about this week. It was a normal week of solid work.
Start your diet on a Monday. I weigh in on Fridays, so over the weekend I have the tendency to cheat a little. If you weigh in on Monday, then you don’t want to cheat over the weekend.
Keep a healthy snack around for those moments when you are staving or it is time for another meal and you are tempted to cheat. I keep Nectar protein packets around, since I can eat them anywhere I have water.
