Profile by Sanford

Sunday, March 18, 2018

I am two weeks into a new journey. I have a couple of co-workers who are on the Profile by Sanford plan (basically a ketogenic diet with much medical backing), and I asked them about it. They had really good things to say so I considered it. Then I was a a conference and they were one of the many exhibitors there. My co-workers introduced me to his coach who was at the booth, and I put my name in a drawing for a free membership. I also decided to have a free consultation, no strings attached. When I went in for the consultation, I learned that I had won the free membership. So, I decided to commit to it. Yes, I am buying many of their food products for these first few weeks. However, I do get to use my own food for lunch and dinner. Also, I don't have a lot of weight to lose (15 pounds or so) so I am thinking that the transition to more of my own foods will happen sooner rather than later.

Here has what has surprised me. I haven't been as hungry as I thought I would be. Yes, I have had a few cravings and a few extras once in a while, but for the most part I have stuck to the plan. I have also discovered that I do not need to eat as much food as I have in the past. I have also managed to lose about 6 pounds so far. I know it will get harder as I move to more of my own foods, but my membership is for one year so I am committed for the year. After that, it's a much smaller membership fee so I am planning to stick with it so I don't have the re-gain that some people have.

Anyway, I just wanted to post an update. Hope everyone is doing well!

    Aha! Let us know how that's going. I used to work at Sanford, but I've always been leery of the packaged food thing. I also have this unhelpful personality thing where my knee jerk reaction to instructions is to do the opposite. Just for myself, not where anyone else is concerned. emoticon emoticon

    Terrific! It’s the reduction in carbs (sugar) that eliminates the hunger. Grains, fruits, beans...not just sugar. emoticon emoticon
