Yoga Vida NYC
I took a class tonight at Yoga Vida in Manhattan. (99 University Place @ 12th St., 6th Fl.) I’d been meaning to go there for a while, ever since I discovered they offer one week of unlimited yoga to new students for $10. I love those deals. Their 6pm flow class tonight was good. A solid, hour-long class complete with a little bit of everything, including ab work and a nice long...
So far so great!
I’ve been doing this 400 Calorie Fix diet for a week now. I haven’t been blogging my meals because I keep forgetting! But the results so far? I lost 5 pounds! I’m not a huge proponent of starving myself, over-exercising, or reducing calories severely. I think that stuff ultimately leads to regaining the weight. So eating four meals a day in 400 calorie increments is...

adamnorwood: From Jamie Oliver’s TED talk urging us to teach our children about food, for the sake of ending our chronically poor (and ultimately fatal) eating habits: For the last 7 years I’ve worked fairly tireless to save lives in my own way. I’m not a doctor. I’m a chef. I don’t have expensive equipment, or medicine. I use information and education. Love Jamie Oliver…

It’s the end of Day Two on this eating plan. So far, I’m really enjoying it. I’m still eating the same things I always eat (Author Liz Vaccariello says we all tend to eat the same 10 meals week after week!) but I’m eating them in slightly smaller portions. I’m measuring stuff. That’s something I don’t want to do forever, but Vaccariello says to just...

materialista-deactivated2012030 asked: Congrats on taking the challenge. I'm glad you've a healthy way to lose weight. I love the idea of the 400 calorie meal. I try to stay between 300-400 cals unless I just have some food with ridiculously low cals, like egg white(18) or salad. Good luck with your goals and thanks for following. Feel free to chat me me (superslimme)
youaintshitbreh asked: Seriously, watching your calories works? Ok then, so what do you suggest as for meals? You say eat 3-4 400 calorie meals a day but it's kind of hard since all the bad stuff tastes so good haha.
My Weight Loss History + Qualifications
Full disclosure: I am not being paid by anyone to write this review blog. And I will be totally honest about my experience with the 400 Calorie Fix. In my early twenties I lost 115 pounds. I used portion control and exercise. It wasn’t easy to change my terrible lifestyle habits, but I did it. Being fat was one of the hardest experiences of my life and I am thankful literally every single...

dg-philosophy writes: Alright so my sister’s starting this calories diet thing where she stays within limits and watches what she eats because she needs to lose weight to get into the Navy. She wants me to do it to but what the fuck is the point? I don’t really think it would work but then she wants to do long walks and exercise on top of that which is cool but still, calories?

Day One Recap
1600 calories total! Right on target. I didn’t feel hungry at all and was so excited at 10pm when I realized I’d only had three 400 calorie meals throughout the day. I decided to have a big dessert (as meal #4) and it was delicious. Goodnight!
