From now until the end of the year, I will be writing about my weight loss goal of losing 90 pounds in 9 months. I’ve been wanting to write a blog about nutrition for the longest while but never had the courage or self-confidence to just do it. I’m passionate about the subject and have devoured numerous tomes in this fascinating field over the years. By the end of 2015, the urge to add my voice to the chorus of health and fitness advocates was stronger than ever so, when January 2016 arrived with its New Year’s Resolutions, I finally bit the bullet and bought a domain. However, it took me another month and a half to actually go live. 

I’m a private person who is deathly afraid of being exposed on social media, I’m also very uncomfortable with being accountable to the public (or to anyone, for that matter) for achieving my goals as I dread the public humiliation if I fail. Like so many others, I have struggled unsuccessfully to lose weight for years, repeatedly losing the same 10-25 lbs then gaining them back with interest. But somehow, as spring arrives every year I feel emboldened. I’m a spring baby myself, so this is the time of year when I feel most upbeat and willing to take on new challenges. This year’s challenge is a huge step outside my comfort zone: a public blog inviting people to accompany me on a weight loss journey. 

So, what is my strategy: 
  • Commit 100% to the paleo/primal diet
  • Use different programs and tools to rev up my weight loss and keep me motivated
  • Actively seek out products to help with my weight loss
  • Exercise regularly for toning, improved mood, and sleep
  • Make sure that there is always an element of novelty to keep the process exciting and fun!

As a person of extremes, I never take the middle road. Lately, however, I’ve been an extreme couch potato and a bit of a hermit, so blogging to the world is a shift to the other extreme. After a terrible bout of the flu last week, I realized that instead of trying to suppress my extremism, which defines me in a sense, I should harness it for good.  So, I have set lofty goals: to lose 90 pounds in 9 months (affectionately called 90 in 9). I plan to reach my target weight of 130 lbs by December 31, 2016.

Through this venture I am taking charge of my destiny and asking you to be my witnesses and cheerleaders. For those who would like to join me, just fill in the form below. Participating is so much more fun than just looking on. There is nothing like a community of like-minded folk to prop us up and keep us focused. Feel free to jump in at any time, there’s no deadline. However, I’m starting the journey today to coincide with Dr. Mark Hyman’s Eat Fat Get Thin Challenge, which  I'm using as a launchpad for  my  90 in 9 Experience. On Monday, March 14, 2014, I will be off to the races!

I’m looking forward to a wild and exciting ride and to turning the weight loss into a health win for us all, for the Paleo/Primal lifestyle and for the Paleo Caribe community. Cheers!

Defining your goals will be the start of your journey and the process will be the greatest part of it. Weight loss is not an easy task, you have to be fully committed to it. I have tried losing weight before and I did not succeed because I was too negative and not committed. I can see it that in 9 months you will achieve your goal! You can do it!

Building muscle at the fastest possible rate requires you to consume at least 25 percent of your calories as protein from both plant and animal sources. You should only eat complex carbohydrates, and try to eat only vegetables that contain protein as well. 25 percent of your diet should consist of fats and fibers. Avoid refined sugars and starches, and keep your caffeine and alcohol consumption to a minimum. To boost your protein intake, you can supplement your diet with protein powder, eggs, desiccated liver and kelp tablets. Wheat germ oil will help your body metabolize protein and will provide you with additional endurance.

Trying to lose weight is not an easy thing to do. It is an activity that can be physically and emotionally draining. This is the reason why many people stop in the middle of their weight loss program. No matter how seemingly easy or attractive the weight loss program is, many people are not able to finish it. If they do stick to the program, it's because there haven't been any weight lost yet.

The food list for the Atkins Diet is divided into three phases. Phase one restricts carbohydrates to 20 net carbs per day. Net carbs are the grams of carbohydrates minus the grams of fiber in a single serving. The list of foods seems pretty long so it may not be too hard to follow.
