Most Effective Weight Loss Protocol For Over 40 And Questions
I am 49 and have about 30 lbs to lose. I've been on BPD for a week and have noticed little difference. (I don't own a scale - but just judging by the way I feel in clothes). I think this diet could fit well with my lifestyle, but I've had many frustrations with trying to lose weight in the past. I even went on a 500 cal HCG diet a few years ago and couldn't lose more than 6 lbs! Ever since perimenopause, I've been gaining weight like crazy. I went from a size 6 to size 12 in just a few years.
I think I messed up my eating during the first few days by eating 1-2 apples, some almonds and having 1-2 glasses of dry white wine. Could this be the problem? I also do 30 min of intense exercise 5 days per week, alternating cardio with weights. I've been doing the intermittent fasting, but I've only lasted 15-17 hours at most.
I really want this to be the answer to my weight loss woes, and would appreciate any suggestions. I'm beginning to feel I'm immune to weight loss, but that can't be right, can it? Please help!
