Quick Fix for Weight Loss?

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

When it comes to getting healthy and losing weight, it’s safe to say that many of us are looking for the quickest route to get there. These days, it’s all about fast results. However, that weight wasn’t put on in a day. Using a quick fix such as medication sounds appealing, but is it healthy? It took time for us to gain weight, so losing it in a healthy way should probably take some time as well. New drugs, designed for diabetes, are being used off-label for weight loss to get that quick fix that so many people are looking for. Will we ever learn? Is there really a quick fix for weight loss?

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

whats-your-resolutionReady to reach your goal weight in the new year? ITG is here to help you get there in 2024! Many of us have gained weight these past few years due to the Covid-19 outbreak, being at home more often, and turning to unhealthy foods and drinks during bouts of stress eating. Have you made a resolution to be happier and healthier next year? Are you already on the ITG Diet Plan and need to make a resolution to help keep yourself on track to reaching your goals?

So you haven't started a diet plan just yet and are planning to start one in the coming weeks. We know there are many choices out there.

From my own personal experience, the ITG Diet Plan is the only one with coaches who will actually educate you on how foods are processed in your body and monitor your progress each week. It definitely was the only diet that really worked for me and allowed me to keep those extra pounds off!

Where Does Water Weight Come From?

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

water,weight,scale,help,diet,keto,lifestyle,itg,carbs,sugar,sodium,saltYou’ve been doing great on the program, sticking to the guidelines, watching what you eat, not cheating, and losing pounds every week. Then, that day inevitably arrives: you’re invited to dinner at a friend’s house; a surprise guests brings over wine and snacks; you decide that you can take a day or two off to enjoy some fun foods and beverages. Then… the next day, you feel puffy, bloated, tired, and fatigued. You check your weight on the scale. It has spiked dramatically!

Have you noticed that when you eat or drink off-program foods, your weight tends to immediately increase? It may be one or two pounds but could add up to even more! What is going on inside your body, and why does this happen so quickly?

Whether we see it coming or not, it can creep up quickly. You look back over the past week, the past month, or maybe even the whole year and you realize you've been going back to old eating habits. When eating gets out of control and you no longer seem to care about what goes in your mouth. Clothes are getting tight. You have no energy.

Starting Your Diet Before the Holidays? Here are the Benefits

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

itg, diet, weightloss, itgdiet, weight, pounds, fat, keto, ketosis, holidays, christmas, thanksgiving, new, years, resolutionIf you have been carrying extra weight for too long, making the decision to get to work on your health and weight loss goal is a big step to take. You must also realize that it is a major commitment, changing how you think about the foods you eat for life.

Getting started on this goal in the midst of holiday season might seem like a recipe for disaster. FOMO kicks in when you think of all the holiday dishes that you WON’T be eating. However, it’s better to get your mindset right and your program started before the holidays arrive rather than waiting until the New Year.

All Runners-Up Receive a $10 ITG Gift Certificate!

 

How To Register

Please call Coach Joe at 727-641-1679 or click here to email Joseph@ITGdiet.com to register for the Slim Down Challenge. You must register on or before November 10th, 2023 to participate. You will need to submit your Friday photo by that day. Miss the deadline? Don't worry! We'll have another Challenge you can join soon!

 

During the Challenge 

Your regularly scheduled check-in day with your Coach still applies, and is separate from the Slim Down Challenge.

If you will be out of town or unable to weigh at any time, please get in touch with Coach Joe immediately to arrange for an alternate day.

 

Weekly Tracking 

To make the competition fair for everyone, ITG will use "percentage of body weight lost" for tracking, rather than number of pounds lost. The highest percentages lost by December 22nd, 2023, will be tallied and winners announced the following week!

 

Winner's Results 

After all results are received on December 22nd, 2023, ITG will contact the winners for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. We will get in touch via phone and/or email to give you more information on redeeming your reward! All runners-up will receive a $10 reward code via email!

Eating Healthy While Traveling

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

Traveling-For-The-HolidaysSo you’re making the trek to visit family and friends soon? Going on a business trip? Starting to have hunger pangs? It’s a familiar scene in any travel situation: you’re waiting for your connecting flight in an airport near the snack stand, or sitting in a car for hours looking for the next rest stop to grab something, anything, to eat. You’ve been doing very well on your diet over the past couple months, up until now. Traveling makes many of us crave snack foods; it takes us back to driving cross-country for vacation with the parents and siblings, eating an assortment of chips, cookies, candy and soda. The snacks help to pass the time and give us something to do with our hands during a long trip. Whether you’ll be taking a car, plane, bus or a train, there are many temptations to be avoided in order to stay on track with your diet. Keep yourself happy and healthy by following some of these travel tips.

Weight Loss Drugs: Are They a Recipe for Disaster?

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

itg,diet,weight,loss,drug,drugs,injection,wegovy,ozempic,diabetes,diabetic,magic,side,effect,keto,ketosis,education,plan,symptoms,diarrhea,stroke,pressure,bloodBeing overweight or obese in the United States has grown to critical levels over the past few decades. Throughout 1970-1980, foods with added sugars surged in popularity. The obesity rate in the United States in the 1970s was 15%. Today, in 2023, it is more than 42% of the adult population. Sugar intake increased in children back then, and our addiction has continued to spiral out of control. Recently, prescription drugs meant for diabetics have come into focus as celebrities and many doctors have promoted the benefits of using them to reach weight loss goals more quickly. However, off-label use of these drugs could spell a recipe for disaster, especially since their long-term effects are currently unknown.
