I am still reading.
I wish I could read it faster, but there is so much information to digest in there.
I am so glad that I went ahead and purchased the PDF book because my Christianbook.com order arrived yesterday and apparently Trim Healthy Mama is backordered and was not available (so it did not come). It won’t be available until March (insert tears here).
I have made it to page 110 so far. That’s chapter 11. When they first started talking about the S meals and E meals my brain started working overtime to fully understand, but then something clicked.
It is so simple and it makes so much sense. I have much experience with reading food labels and identifying carbs, so I may be ahead of the game, but it really is simple. With S meals you get your fuel from fat, so you have to keep your carbs super low. With your E meals you get your fuel from carbs, so you keep your fats super low. Alternating between the types of meals is what keeps your body burning fat. Remembering those two things will be the key to being successful.
As I was reading, I realized that the only piece of information I need to fully grasp right now is what the S and E meals are and how to use them. Since I need to focus on losing weight, I don’t need to know about S Helpers or Crossovers or Fuel Pulls right now. If weight-loss is slow or I hit any rough spots, my next step will be to learn about Fuel Pulls.
I don’t need to know or remember everything. What a relief that is.
PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT a medical expert. I am a mom sharing my thoughts after reading Trim Healthy Mama.
