After watching I Can Make You Thin With Paul McKenna Sunday, I started following the 4 Golden Rules yesterday –
As a reminder, here are the four rules – with links to Paul’s website –
I had four ‘meals’ yesterday. I was never ‘really, really’ hungry – but I did feel like eating. I ate at 10, 2, 6, and 10.
For supper, I wanted a steak. So, I went ‘big-time’ and purchased some fillets. I grilled them with a little salt and pepper. After bringing them inside, I cut one in ‘half’ and put about 4 ounces on my plate. I also had a small portion of potatoes and some corn. Read rule 3 for what happened next! Here’s a hint… It was amazing.
The idea for this rule is that you ‘think’ about what you are eating – and that you eat slowly. So, at each of my meals, and especially for the meal where I had the steak, I would take a bite of food, and slowly chew it. After swallowing, I would simply ‘sit-there’ for about 45 seconds. And, amazingly, after 10 minutes, 8 bites, and 2/3 of the steak, I was FULL. I’m telling you – under ‘normal’ circumstances, I’m eating that much steak in 3 bites and I’m ‘starving’ for more. But, with this plan, my stomach, apparently, has a chance to tell my brain – hey, I’m cool – and then I can just stop eating.
Later, I felt a little ‘hungry’ – not starving, but I felt like I wanted something to eat. I drank a glass of water and then I fixed a plate of chips and salsa. I used ‘rule 3’ and – after eating EIGHT bite-sized chips – I was full.
So far – and I realize that it’s only 1 day – I’m LOVING this program.Click here to read my summary post about the 4 Golden Rules
