Step 3 Interview - Success For Life!

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

diet-changed-life.pngWe have helped so many people reach their goal weight and more importantly, maintain that goal weight over the years. Once you learn how you can lose weight and keep it off with ITG by following the program, it is much easier to notice a few extra pounds creeping back here and there as is natural with our busy lives, vacations, holidays, and more.

The biggest takeaway would be recognizing when those pounds start creeping back and how you can use the knowledge you learned with your ITG Coach to help you reboot, tune-up, and get back to that goal weight quickly and efficiently. Life happens - but significant weight gain doesn't have to be a part of that!

We recently interviewed one of our successful Step 3 dieters who has been able to maintain his weight with a few tune-ups along the way. Continue reading for excerpts from his interview about Step 3 - Success For Life!

Don't Like Water?

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

itg,diet,water,enhancer,hydration,keto,ketogenic,ketosisWe've been told time and again that water is very important to our health and extremely important while on the ITG Diet Plan. Water helps flush out the fat we are burning while in ketosis, and too little of it will cause dehydration and stall our weight loss. Every basic function of the human body takes place in water so it is important to stay hydrated, but what if you just don't like water?

The Problem With Healthy Fast Food

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

problem,healthy,fast,food,itg,diet,weight,loss,ketogenic,ketosis,keto

If you get hungry on-the-go these days, your options for food are endless. When you’re trying to stick with only healthy foods from fast food restaurants, your options become much more limited. Many fast food restaurants are now offering “healthy” menu selections which can come in handy for someone on a diet watching their fat and carb intake. The problem is you will need to be cautious of all the hidden ingredients that will turn that healthy salad or wrap into a roadblock on your path to your weight loss goal.

Thanksgiving Survival Recipes

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

thanksgiving

It's getting closer by the day: Thanksgiving Dinner. Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce... the list goes on and on. You may have anxiously awaited this giant feast every year in the past, but now you're on a diet. The ITG Diet. And you are a little nervous, as you've only got your protein covered, turkey. Now what to do about all those carb- and sugar-filled side dishes? ITG is here to help, and to show you how delicious a healthy Thanksgiving Dinner can be (and probably should be!)

If you will be partaking in a big family dinner this Thanksgiving and you are on the ITG Diet, have no fear! We have seen people have a very hard time on the diet due to one major factor: lack of planning. Start planning now so that when the big meal is being laid out on the table, you can make informed decisions on what to eat, what not to eat, and what you can substitute in place of the unhealthy sides being served in (over)abundance.

4 Reasons Why Most Diets Don't Work

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

fads-and-yoyo-diets-do-not-workA lot of us have been there – chances are if you’re reading this, you have been there – just starting a new diet, feeling completely confident it will work and that THIS time, you’ll be sure to maintain the weight you lost by either sticking to the diet forever or making sure you’ll exercise every single day once you’ve lost the weight. And wouldn’t you know it, you lost some weight on this new diet! Now you look great and more so, you feel great! And yet, little by little you start going right back to your old ways. Or as I like to call it, you go right back to being a red-blooded human being! Coffee with sugar every morning, beer and pizza while watching football, chomping on that yummy ginormous sandwich for lunch and enjoying a butter loaded piece of toast for breakfast or potato at dinner most nights of the week. Oh, and let us not forget the NEVER-FAILS-at-being-YUMMY that is Fast Food. And these are just the average routines of people. But besides the average routines, we also have the more than average amount of refreshing ice cream in the Summer, Holiday treats galore in the Winter, Pumpkin & Apple Caramel EVERYTHING in the Fall and the grease-tastic Fair Food in the Spring. But admit it, you don’t just like these things, you LOVE this stuff! And you absolutely should, you’ve been taught to your WHOLE life! Especially since food isn’t just something we have to eat in order to survive – foods & drinks are a very real and very emotional part of who we are to our deepest core. So, now that we’ve admitted the very obvious truth about who we are as a species, it’s time to find out just how the corporate world has been using this knowledge against us for a VERY long time.

Curb Hunger with Veggies and Lean Protein

Posted by on in ITG Diet Weight Loss Blog

curb-hunger-protein-veggiesThroughout the course of your ITG Diet as well as maintenance afterwards, it is very important to be eating lean proteins and the proper amounts of vegetables. The reasons why? Lean protein curbs your hunger. It also helps you to retain muscle mass, instead of many diets that shed pounds-worth of water and muscle. Non-starchy vegetables will deliver water, fiber and nutrients, and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Here are some more tips on lean protein and vegetables.
