I have 2 days left on Ignite!! I lost about 11 pounds so far!! Did not have to reignite. Sometimes I would get a temptation, like going to both of my nephews birthdays this month and the cake calls me. But I looked for about 10 seconds and starting talking to my family again and forgot about it. I always made sure I was not hungry and raided the salad bar for a healthy snack to keep my mind clear. I'm almost there! I'm so happy! I am a little nervous to go to the balance stage and add more calories to my diet. I may just stay on Ignite a while longer to get to my goal and then maybe use a couple of my points. I'm still learning how to coordinate my dinners with my families, so I don't look out of place.
I drink a 16 oz. cup of water when I get up in the morning. I add either coconut milk or rice milk to my shake as well as a serving of fruit. I also put a tablespoon of Chia Seeds in my shake every morning. It's weird at first but I'm used to having the seeds in my shake now. I have my shake around 7:30 and my stomach starts to growl a little at around 11. My lunch is at 11:30. I also sip on another 16 oz. glass of water between breakfast and lunch. I noticed that if I don't drink enough water to keep me full, I end up being hungry before my meal. That can lead you in alot of trouble! Also, some of the Ignite shakes have more protein in them. Like the Almond Butter one.
I made it through Ignite and lost 18 pounds! I exercised 7 days a week for an hour and a half and never lost weight. When I changed the way I ate, it fell off! Exercise helps, but the diet is key!
I use the light coconut milk at trader joes. Its in a green can. Just coconut milk and water, that's it. Its not thick like Thai, but for my fuel shakes it doesn't matter to me. For thicker recipes, I use Thai.
I've been using the vanilla and chocolate but need a change! Strawberry!
Make sure your getting enough protein in your diet. When I skimp, I get hungry.
I go to the very top. It would be hard to make a level scoop if you went to the other line. I hope I've been doing it right since it's been severeral months doing this!
I noticed I lost more weight faster when I ate more lean protein. Reducing food will force your body into starvation mode. I eat alot of protein and drink lots of water. Use your Dailyburn tracker to help you with the right amount of protein.
When I started Ignite, I had a small allergy to raw almonds. I had no problems with drinking the almond milk and almond butter. Now two months later, I'm now getting an upset stomach, bloating, and constipation after consuming those products. The days when I don't consume them, I'm fine. Now I need to switch to Coconut milk more often, but the calories and fat are way higher:( I thought about rice milk once and a while but I heard it's like drinking sugar to the body and it has non Ignite oils in them. What to do???
Sounds good to me. Kale is rich in calcium like broccoli, but without the gas!
How can he use my Dailyburn videos without messing up my progress?
Id love to buy it but not sure it's a safe idea.
Oh my gosh! I had a small slice of pizza and a small slice of the ice cream cake. It was good, but the guilt is killing me now!! My calories were within my limits, but about 200 calories more than I usually have. I don't think I'm going to do this for a long time! Once a month tops!
I finished the Ignite stage and on the first few days of the balance stage. I'm scared to death to use my points in fear of gaining. I got a heart shaped pepperoni pizza from Papa Murphy's and small heart shaped ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins for my family. I wanted to have a little to celebrate with them but scared. If I don't go over my calories for the day will it hurt me??
Started the balance stage today and was offered M&M's at work. I looked at the ingredients and it looks like they have sugar, milk, soy and other added ingredients. Should I specifically look at the main ingredients or the ingredients in the parenthesis too? Confused!! I may give these to my son instead.
