If you missed my last week's post: Week 1 of the 80Bites diet, you can see my review here!
I'm happy to announce that I am trying a new approach to weight loss. It's the 80Bites program! The 80Bites program is a whole new take on dieting and a close look at how much we are eating. Thanks to the wonderful folks at 80Bites I am getting to review their full length program, which consists of 12 weeks.
Week 2 of the 80Bites diet includes the goal of getting your bites to the magic number - 80!
Now the first week I had noticed my bites were not that far off from 80. I was totaling between 100-110 bites. I found that by knocking out my late night snacking habit, combined with removing one less snack I really didn't need a day - I hit the magic number of 80 bites! There has actually even been days where I came in under 80!
Week 2 also involved measuring and really taking a look at how big your average bite is. I found out that I am taking larger bites than normal, so I have worked hard to fix that during this past week. It makes sense though - smaller bites are easier to chew and digest, which also leads to needing less bites! Since I want to hold myself accountable, and give my readers a true review, so I will tell you that when I started this program two weeks ago I weighed 183. Ouch, that hurts to write that! Good news is I have lost 2 lbs. since starting the 80Bites program! Down to 181! This program is fantastic and so well put together. I encourage you to check out the 80Bites website and have a look around. If you want to get the same membership as I have, the 12 week program, the cost is $49.99 available through their site.
* If you're not quite ready to start the program, but would like a take on counting and keeping track of your bites, the 80Bites app is available through the iTunes and Android app store!
