Finally found a use for the cool urban slang “smh” (means shaking my head if you’re not quite as cool as me yet :-) And why do I SMH? I can’t begin to understand why dieters feel it’s a burden to search for amazing food to help them succeed on The EET Timing Diet! For example, this new popcorn I found at Costco is very low in net carbs for a portion size of 4 cups and tastes great watching TV at night when that’s what I need!
People spend hours studying Yelp or restaurant guides to find new places to eat and sit glued to the Food Network or scour food websites looking for amazing new recipes, but, apparently when you decide you want to lose weight, you try to close your eyes and act like amazing food doesn’t exist, right? Gotta be something like that? Even though I assure them finding and timing amazing food is THE KEY to long term weight loss! As I said, I’ve got no clue because I can’t wait to find new foods that fit different times of day! smh…..
Anyhow–throughout this blog post you are seeing 5 foods that I’ve found recently that fit times each day I’m looking for lower carb meals. Hope these help others as they are helping me lose weight while loving all my food on my diet. I’m not gonna list all the nutritional data. For that you can search Google and find the numbers. Then, if you don’t like these foods you could find others that might work for you that have similar numbers? No? WHY? smh….
Know that I have many more, and I expect to find 2-3 more this weekend. I also endlessly search for amazing HIGH CARB foods, but dieters get all upset when I post those pictures so we won’t even go there for the moment. In any case, I’ve embraced “The Search” in my EET Timing Diet. What’s The Search? You can read all about it for free if you go to EET’s Book and click Look Inside – Guideline 4 Don’t Enjoy It? Don’t Eat It!
With the upcoming release of EET’s new Personal Training Guide, I am really hopeful I can stop smh very soon…..
No hype. No gimmicks. Science says long-term weight loss and fitness is nearly impossible. The EET Timing Diet is built to change that. Now we want to show you all the details. We want to put an end to Yo-yo dieting forever, and we strongly believe we know how.
It’s been a long time coming, but EET Fitness is pleased to announce we have new pricing plans that will allow anyone to learn how Thg EET Timing Diet works for long-term weight loss and fitness!
Here’s what the new Plan Options look like (NOTE: Current EET Memebers are Grandfathered at your current fees as promised the day EET started– you have full access to any help you need for as long as you maintain your membership!!):
For those who want to learn about the EET Fitness Plan on their own through EET’s Website, Book, EETfit Timing Kit and other online resources, as well as connecting with other EETers in our Facebook and other online communities, you can now do that for only $9.95 per month (of course you can cancel at any time–EET forces no one to do anything!)
We’ve spent the last 6 months planning for these changes to make The EET Timing Diet easier to learn and to get help when you need it.
And even more good news: We have even bigger announcements that will help all those interested in “putting science on your side” using EET Fitness coming in the near future!
In the coming months, you’ll see that EET is ready to do our part to make these quotes a thing of the past:
Check out this chart I made comparing obesity statistics in the US 2013 vs 2014. Maybe it’s the ex-accountant in me, or maybe I wanna be the guy in the The DaVinci Code, but I like to dig into numbers and compare them. I noticed some key info was not included in the RWJF’s just released page turner 2014 State of Obesity vs their 2013 F as in FAT reports that have me wondering how they can claim to have made progress:
FROM THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The Issue: There is increasing evidence that obesity rates are stabilizing for adults and children—but the rates remain high, putting millions of Americans at risk for increased health problems.
FROM THE LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: After decades of bad news, we’re finally seeing signs of progress….
FROM THE RESEARCH PAGE 8 Between 2011 and 2012, only one
state had an increase. Between 2012 and 2013, six states had increases.
FROM THE CHART ABOVE (which was not included in the report though other comparisons were): Obesity rates for the US as a whole are moving up at every level. Heck, they had to create a new “red” level for 2 states that have now gone over the 35% obesity rate. Maybe it’s just me who considers progress obesity rates going DOWN not up??
The takeaway here? If you’re serious about learning what science has to say about weight loss and fitness, you better do your own homework.
At least I hope dieters are starting to see the truth about the current state of the weight loss, fitness and nutrition industries. The spinning of information and constant promise of hope “if we just keep trying” the same proven failed strategies are doing far more to create the obesity crisis than they are in solving it. I’ve found more interesting clues in these reports that reveal some interesting possibilities that I’ll cover in future blog posts.
NOTE: I didn’t bother adding up the beige states above–i just subtracted the other colors totals from 51, so my exact counts might be off–don’t really care as the key data is accurat. Here are the reports so you can review and make your own decisions:
No such thing as speicfic food addictions? But what about the pleasure centers? The Heroin like reaction of refined sugar? I told you this was all a myth years ago when I realized everyone was only addicted at certain TIMES and that I don’t like and won’t eat Oreos no matter how much sugar they contain! Maybe you’ll listen to the latest research?
Well, now that you’ve learned your not addicted to any particular food — what excuse, errrr… issue will you chase next to explain your frustration at reaching your weight and/or fitness goals? Gluten? Processed Foods? Fast Foods? Trans Fats? Pesticide ridden Fruits and veggies? The list of myths just keeps growing as does the obesity crisis. Hmmm…. wonder if there’s a correlation there?
Oh and one more thing: Though were all addicted to eating (gotta do it to survive!) EET Timing CURES OVEReating addictions too. Happy to prove it to anyone who cares to learn :-).
You can read more about the study here:
Above is a 1 minute quiz to help you understand how EET Progressions fit into the EET Timing Diet. Give the quiz a try! Answers are at the end of the post.
I’ve always said EET Guideline #24 Phase It Don’t Force It should be Guideline #1 on The EET Timing Diet, but dieters simply won’t allow it. The demand for fast results and all their belief they can be perfect on a diet day 1 is simply too ingrained in their heads, courtesy of crash diets, 30 day cleanses and 90 day transformation exercise routines.
If you learn one thing from EET please learn this:
Fast weight loss and fitness results on a diet are NOT an indicator of success — they are in indicator of WEIGHT GAIN and REDUCED FITNESS. It’s just a matter of WHEN you’ll gain all the fast weight loss back, or lose your 90 day fitness transformation.
But don’t take my word for it:
Here’s a little preview from Guideline #24 in EET’s Book:
This is the hardest Guideline for dieters to accept and definitely the hardest Guideline for them to apply. I know this from years of experience as well as clinical studies about dieter’s expectations like this one:
Great Expectations: I’m losing 25% of my weight no matter what you say 
It doesn’t matter that this Pain-Free Guideline is the reason I and so many others have achieved great successes beyond our expectations using EET. Even those who experience its power have great difficulty in continuing to apply it. I’ll lay out the details, but let me start with the most important takeaway:
Phase It, Don’t Force It is the reason for my (and my clients’) success in weight loss, fitness, relationship with food, and in applying every other EET Guideline.
And, as promised, here are EET’s answers to this quiz. How did you do? If you want your best chance at long-term weight loss and fitness, please keep this answer key handy, and refer to it often as a reminder of how The EET Timing Diet Works.
You think I’m joking, but you’re very wrong. Read on to see why everyone hates dieting but I LOVE my EET Timing Diet!
Finally got a chance to try Little Caesar’s Pretzel Crust Pizza. Figured I would love it because I love Little Caesars and I love pretzels. However, I braced myself for serious disappointment. I’ve chased many a pretzel crust/bun and every time they let me down because THEY WON’T SALT THEM! When I went to Hole in The Wall Burger Joint, they told me it was because they got so many customer complaints about too much salt being “unhealthy”. Other restaurants and Costco with their pretzel buns told me the same sad story.
Serious EETers know better. We know there are:
NO UNHEALTHY FOODS, ONLY UNHEALTHY TIMES
So, I just stayed with my “go to” SALTED Pretzel treats like this one from The Bru Haus so I wouldn’t feel deprived and risk resenting my diet.
I will add, the only possible exception to this EET cornerstone “no unhealthy foods, only unhealthy times” is amazing food made without key ingredients like SALT ON PRETZELS — that could very easily be unhealthy as it could leave me very unsatisfied!! EETers also know
WE TIME OUR TREATS TO LOSE OUR WEIGHT
Most yo-yo dieters and the weight and fitness obsessed think eating a Pretzel Crust Pizza should be considered “cheating” and never encouraged on their diets. Sounds like a guilt ridden, eating disorder waiting to happen to me. Thanks anyway, but I think I like EET’s approach just a tad better:
We MUST routinely have access to the foods we love in the amounts we love ON OUR DIET PLAN at the right times to succeed on our diets!
And, so, with some skepticism, I put Little Caesar’s on my Daily Timing Menu — I cannot tell you how excited I was to open the box and see those gorgeous chunks of salt all over the crust!!! Complete Satisfaction ON my Timing Diet! And my 6+ years of weight loss and fitness success as I love my diet continues…..
Got another Pretzel Crust Pizza already on the menu for later this week!! THANK YOU LITTLE CAESARS!!
If your problem is obesity, Science very clearly says you can’t run from it, that’s who. The Just Do It philosophy for exercise is only making things worse as recent studies confirm.
Next time see a powerfully motivating Nike Ad and think, “They’re right. I’ve just got to do it! No more excuses!” Take one more minute and consider these “slogans” before you lace em up if you’re goal is weight loss:
Health enthusiasts all over the country can breathe a collective sigh of relief. According to the results of a new study, the number of Americans getting sufficient exercise has increased steadily over the last few years. But don’t break out the celebratory ice cream just yet — unfortunately, that same study also found the number of obese Americans continues to climb…..
In fact, new research suggests that people who think exercise is the most important factor in weight loss have higher BMIs than people who think diet is more significant ….
Quotes are from the following blog post which also sites the specific studies with links:
EET Fitness has been preaching from the same gospel as these studies since 2008. Here’s a few quotes from EET’s Book and a couple of blog posts we feel are worth your time as well:
Yo-yo exercise is just as much the cause of our nation’s obesity crisis as yo-yo dieting. Decades of on-again off-again weight workouts and mountain bike rides resulting in 25 lbs of weight gain said a lot. Science confirming all plans requiring exercise can’t produce lasting weight loss said even more. [11, 12, 13, 154] These revelations about “yo-yo exercise” led to another revelation: If I was going to rely on exercise to reach my goal of losing 15 pounds for 50 years, then I would need to exercise consistently, for 50 years. …
Newsflash: Exercise is not the key to weight loss!
Look at all the major commercial diet plans. How many of them have a workout facility? How many of them even have a specific exercise program they recommend to their clients? None. Yet, people pay these weight loss industry giants tens of millions of dollars every year for help with their dieting efforts. I’ve found many stories of short term weight loss accomplished on these plans without a single pushup. [140, 141]
So, “Just Do It” for exercise if you must, but if weight loss and making progress against obesity is part of your goals, what your “just doing” won’t take you where you want to go. EET hopes you’ll learn more about how to “put science on your side” using The EET Timing Diet and not use diet and exerise plans that are proven failures and recently led experts to say this:
