Smile Book Study /Chapter #11/ Aug 15th to Aug 21st

Greetings to all lurkers and posters.
This is going to be a new thread topic focused on "studying" Dr Phils The Ultimate Weight Solution
We invite you to read the entire book or take it one chapter at a time, following the discussion within this thread.

Each Sunday we will start discussing a new chapter for that week.
This will be a 12 week program. We hope all of you join in every week.

If you just now found this site... be sure and go back and read all the threads for each previous chapter we did.
If you are joining us late... just go back and read each chapter and add your comments in that chapters thread. Be sure to let us know in the current thread so we can go back and read your comments.

It is recommended you have a pen, pencil and/or a colored highlighter with you as you read.
Mark every word, sentence, phrase or paragraph that hit home for YOU.
Read each chapter as if you are going to be tested .. (You're not going to be tested)
Then come to this thread and share what hit home for you... what you took away with you from that chapter and how you are incorporating it into YOUR life.
Feel free to post often ... you may get a dozen different topics you want to share per each chapter.

I know many can read the entire book in an evening... others will need a week... while some of us may need the entire 12 weeks. There are 12 chapters ... plus a few extra topics at the end. But the idea of this thread is to share what we learned from each chapter and learn from others insights.

You do not have to be a Dr. Phil fan... many here are not. BUT... let's face it... we can all learn something new that just might be what will make a difference.
Each Sunday anyone can feel free to copy and paste this introduction and then start the new study.
Be sure to title it Book Study /Chapter #/ date-date
We are looking forward to reading everyone's input.

Am I Weight Loss Resistant?

I'd love to use that as my excuse. I don't think its a meds issue. However, I have wondered about my metabolic rate as I have read in several other places about the apple body shape being linked to poor metabolism. And also the most dangerous place to carry weight.

I do carry the majority of my weight around my midsection.

I do know that even if I do all the right things, the weight comes off very slowly for me. I've never been able to say that I made a few lifestyle changes and the weight starts falling off.

I was intrigued to read that those with the apple body shape have trouble metabolizing sugar. I have been able to get more weight off when following a South Beach inspired eating plan. A low-fat, low-sugar diet is recommended.

Time to get back off the bread and sugary items.

Terri, that sure is the theme of all diets now. I would think there is a third issue along with those - exercise.

There was a family of 2 brothers and 2 sisters that lived on a farm by us that were pretty poor. My Grandma used to visit them and I remember they made 19 loaves of bread a week! but they were all very slim. I assume it was the hard work they did along with all of that bread!

I reviewed my vitamin consumption and realized I had quit taking chromium and CQ10 so I am adding them back into my regime.

Lucky -

I have to agree. I have a bunch of cousins that are big time farmers. And as lean as they come despite growing up on homemade bread, potatoes, rice, and corn. But they worked outside from sun up to sun down. I don't think that the normal person can exercise enough to burn off the carbs from all the high sugary foods that we eat now. Hence, the need for low-carb eating. And more exercise.

I'd love to be able to go live on a farm and work all day. I'm so tired of Corporate America.

Terri, Be Careful What You Wish For...

I left corporate America 3 years ago - live on a farm, have a low paying job, no social life, and am lonely. There are many days I miss corporate life.

But I know any situation is what I make it and I have to improve my situation or learn to love it!!!! (okay, maybe just not hate it)
