The Buffer Zone Diet

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): WHAT'S YOUR LIFE WORTH? 

When you're drowning, the last thing you do before you go unconscious is take a breath. The carbon dioxide rises so much in your blood it overpowers the last few molecules of oxygen in your body. You reach your breaking point, then you inhale. I inhaled food my whole life and I reached my breaking point in my battle with weight loss.

Right at the moment I was ready to give up, I had some last thoughts:

What if there were things I believed that weren't true? What if calories in and calories out had exceptions? What if we don't all metabolize food the same? Why can't we successfully lose weight and keep it off? I had to find out - my life depended on it. In my quest to break my weight loss code, the Buffer Zone is the space where I found my truth. 

The Buffer Zone diet is the answer to all of these questions and more. In this book you will learn:

  • The Top Ten lies we've been told about our diet
  • Tips for distinguishing between emotional hunger and physical hunger
  • How to create nutrient-dense meals to keep physical hunger at bay
  • Science between weight loss and weight gain 
  • Five distinct blueprints for designing the new and healthiest you 
  • Strategies for breaking through weight loss plateaus 
  • The Four Laws of Weight Management 
  • And most importantly, the formula that regulates weight for the human body!
No matter where you are in your weight-loss journey or quest for a healthy lifestyle The Buffer Zone Diet is a must-read to help you get started on a path to success!

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Do you struggle with your weight? I sure do.  I often need to read books like The Buffer Zone Diet to get my head back in the game. The end of March, I gave up McDonald's Coke (the absolute best Coke in the world), which I HAD to have daily.  Cold turkey gave it up because I got mad at my doctor, who told me I had to do something NOW (thanks doc)!  I have lost 20 pounds.  However, I haven't lost anything this past month.  Buffer Zone I come.

I was pulled in by the first chapter and the ten lies.  I am not sure I agree that they are all lies, but that is okay.  As I continued to read the book, it helped me layout some "rules" to follow.  As the book indicated, most people get more than enough protein, I realized I am not getting nearly enough protein.  I have a list of foods that will help me up my game in that category.  

The other thing I really need to do (and I knew/know it) is exercise.  I liked the different options in the book and allows me to tailor my weeks to ensure I get my daily dose of exercise. I am hoping this will help me past my plateau.  

I find the slow steady weight loss makes me feel better, have more energy and want to continue to eat healthy instead of sucking down my McDonald's Coke.  Don't get me wrong, there are stressful days that I would love to drive thru and pick one up, but I have to keep in mind that is emotional hunger not real hunger.  This is also discussed in the book.
