SLIM50...The Free weight control program for the "Over the Hill" gang.

You might ask, "what does my age have to do with my weight"? The answer is your body and lifestyle takes on a number of changes as you begin and enjoy the mature years. When you were younger, your metabolism and physical activity were operating in full swing do to things like children at home, full-time job, etc. Combine todays reduced physical activities along with your metabolism is not as reliable as it once was we all tend to put on those extra pounds.


The SLIM50 program is an effective way to control our body's urge to acquire more food then the body requires. Most diet programs fail for one reason. They become very boring after only a couple of weeks and we don't like boring so the diet ends.  The SLIM50 plan does not require that you start eating piles of rabbit food (salads) or portion control meals that you purchase on a diet plan.

LOSING WEIGHT IS SO EASY, YOU WONDER WHY EVERYBODY IS NOT SLIM AND TRIM

YEA REIGHT. Everyone knows that reducing you daily calorie intake, you will lose weight. We start out with a super diet plan we heard about and have great anticipation that we will be slim again. Guess what happens after about 2 weeks on the super diet plan?  We get very bored with eating the same type of food day after day. The super diet plan comes to an end and we put back the few pounds we have lost.
Why is the SLIM50 Program any different from the many other weight lost programs I've seen?

UNDER SLIM50 YOU EAT AND DRINK WHAT YOU ENJOY

The primary reason we eat is because we get hungry, not because our body is requiring the extra calories.  This differs from the reason we take a drink of water as our body is requiring the water to survive. Of course if we never eat our body will shut down. SLIM50 combines our stored fat along with our food intact to reach just the right amount of fuel our body requires to function in a healthy manner. 

AVOID EATING THE TYPE OF BREAKFAST YOU HAVE ENJOYED IN THE PAST

Throughout our life we have been told that breakfast is the most important meal. Although this may still be true with growing children and young adults it is not the case as you get older.  In fact the type of breakfast we all normally eat is a great contributor to our excess weight.  Here is why:
Our normal breakfast usually consist of cereals, breads, donuts and other tasty foods.  All of these are high in  carbohydrates.  Its the carbohydrates that are the problem.  While eating foods high in carbohydrates serve to  temporary satisfy your hunger, that satisfaction is short lived.  Within a few hours our hunger will return and we will  satisfy the hunger by eating. 

The SLIM50 program advises that for your morning meal eat fruit such as oranges, grapefruit, peaches, apples or even a banana.

Another technique to help eliminate mid morning hunger is to take an antacid tablet such as tums or various store generic brands. Most of these contain calcium carbonate which acts as an appetite suppression and  will help with any mid-morning hunger pains. Another benefit of this is you may want to skip breakfast and combine the calories for a larger lunch.
Warning: Check with your doctor if you are taking any prescription medicine as the components of these antacid tablets my reduce the potency of certain  prescriptions. You may check here for more information.

WEIGH YOURSELF ONLY ONCE A MONTH.

Weighing yourself every few days can be very discouraging and by waiting to weigh on the same day every month you will be very proud of what you have accomplished. SLIM50 is not a "lose weight fast" program.
