Nutrition: How to eat

So like every mom, I have been trying to maintain or lose weight.  I’m not loving the gym.  It’s a struggle; however, I found this amazing nutritionist who knows what he is doing.  My mom has been with him for 3 years and has taken off 35 pounds and kept it off.  Why? Becuase she is eating.

I’m going to let you in on her bible that Derek Smith has given her.(He charges around $500.00 for the first visit) It’s expensive because you have to commit to seeing him for months at $35.00 a visit. He is worth it because the trick to keeping it off is having to answer to someone.  Not your husband or your best friend, but to a professional who clearly knows who you are.  Stress will keep weight on, not sleeping will keep weight on, trying to hard will keep weight on and most of all NOT EATING WILL KEEP WEIGHT ON!

So Take a look at this:


1. Make sure to drink 50 ounces of fresh bottled water in a

12 hour period for the first 2 days.

Day #3 and #4 drink SIXTY ounces of water in 12 hours

Day #6, and #7  you must drink at least 70-80 ounces per 12 hours

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not guzzle the water.

Drink 8-16 oz. every 3-4 hours

2. Do not restrict serving sizes when you eat.  Don’t weigh or

measure the food you eat.  Eat until your satisfied.

3. Your must eat every 3 hours the first 3 days

IMPORTANT NOTE: After the first 3 days eat every 3 hours

or hunger first

** If your not hungry and it is your scheduled time to eat, eat anyway.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you don’t eat this will not work.

4. Eat breakfast within 15 minutes of waking. You must

eat breakfast early……..(hungry or not).

5. After dinner, if your hungry then follow the suggestions on your meal plan.

** Remember being hungry is a great thing. If you don’t eat this can’t work.

6. White meat: chicken or turkey – white meat only

white fish- tilapia, mahi,

tuna – low sodium tuna in a can or tuna steak


IMPORTANT NOTE: Have 1 cup of hot tea in the morning

and 1 cup of hot tea in the mid afternoon


10. No Splenda/Sucralose etc……..

11.No alcohol


12. You must keep your SODIUM/SALT levels as low as possible

** Keep the EXTRA SODIUM below 300 mg. per serving added to

the base of your foods.  All foods have some level of sodium.

You must keep a watchful eye out for Dressings, Sauces, Spices,

and Food Preparation….

If you can prepare your own foods you will make progress at a 10 to 1 ratio.
