I Don’t Know How I Put on Weight Doing This (Looks like an ‘F’ in Herbology then…)

Love Herbology? Not so much...

I honestly have no idea how I put on weight on my 'Back to Hogwarts' Herbology diet this week.

On top of the herbs, teas and supplements, I walked 8-10 miles a day, which my pedometer says should give me around an extra 1200 calories to play with.

Beginning weight: 213.3lbs
Ending weight: 215lbs

I did get hungrier and eat more than usual, but I didn't think I ate that much more. I think the biggest difference was that I ate more bread.

But I also ate all kinds of herbs and vegetables for energy, metabolism boosting and weight loss, not to mention the herbal teas every night that were basically laxatives. I put so much into the 'output' side of the equation, I can't believe I still outweighed it!

But I do love this shirt... 🙂

Still, some things were good this week. My insomnia (waking in the early hours) almost vanished this week, which was a fantastic improvement.

I felt much better for walking so far. Strangely, it made me want to go swimming.

The herbal teas weren't bad either, and I'll have them there if I need them.

I learned that prunes aren't that bad if they're still soft, but it's so not worth giving them to toddlers, even to keep the peace.

I learned that Spirulina Live Granola bars taste a bit like dried bananas and soap, but if you can get used to that they do produce a nice little energy boost later on in the day.

I also learned that green tea in a can isn't worth it: just make it with a tea bag and leave it to go cold in the cup for the same taste and effect.

And finally, I learned never again to get whichever of the weight loss supplemments from Jamba Juice doubles the size of your smoothie by filling it up with gross disgusting whey protein. Yum.

Let's hope it goes better next week!

Jelly-Baby-like Weight Loss 4 Gummies: Any Good?

Weight Loss 4 Gummies

Weight Loss 4 Gummies: available in many supermarkets, including Target.

Ok, I admit it: I didn't really expect Weight Loss 4 Gummies to be any good. But they were.

After gaining 6 pounds back in Captain America Week, I was still in a less-than-enthusiastic mood about the dieting and didn't feel like trying hard, but it wasn't hard to eat 3 Weight Loss 4 Gummies every day and so I did.

They tasted nice, and although I did feel a little jittery (perhaps from the Green Coffee Bean extract), it wasn't that noticeable. And probably a lot better for the diet than real Jelly Babies!

Beginning weight: 215.8 lbs
Ending weight (after a week): 215 lbs

For a week of not especially trying (we had friends round for dinner twice and I had ice cream with the kids too!), I think losing half a pound is pretty good, and a great motivation for getting back on the weight loss wagon again.

Jelly Baby? Or Weight Loss 4 Gummies? (Review)

Jelly Baby? Or Weight Loss 4 Gummies? (Review) Dr Who Badge: Would you Like a Jelly Baby? available from Etsy

Dr Who Badge: 'Would you Like a Jelly Baby?' Available from DareWearbyNaniWear via Etsy

As a Dr Who fan who grew up during the Tom Baker years, I've always had a soft spot for jelly babies, so I couldn't resist trying a weight loss supplement that looks and tastes a bit like them.

Weight Loss 4 Gummies are also one of the few weight loss supplements that don't say 'consult a doctor if you're pregnant or nursing', which helps in my case.

So, do they work? A little bit 🙂

Adipose or Alli?

Adipose (Dr Who)

An Adipose baby... now where did that come from?
(Thinkgeek, I suspect!)

I admit it: I completely failed to boost my metabolism like Captain America.

Instead, I put on 5 pounds, and felt quite discouraged about it too.

So I thought it was time to try a weight loss supplement instead of another week of dieting: something I could take to make the pounds go away by themselves...

I'd heard good things about Alli: apparently it's a non-prescription version of Orlistat, and is the only over the counter weight loss aid that's approved by the FDA.

According to the official website, it's a pill that stops about 25% of the fat you eat from getting absorbed.

The website also offers a free personalized support plan that helps you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Sounds good to me.

Alli works by blocking the absorption of fat during digestion. And, a little bit like our favourite product from Adipose Industries (up to a point!), if you do eat too much fat, it allegedly leaves quite suddenly 😉 although not in the same way!
