No more. The infamous thyroid battle of Woman vs. Food.
I’ve had it. Now, however, I am over the Moon with that spelled backward.
Never really filling full before, this approach to eating is very different.
All along I’ve had the right foods in my house and in my stomach, just never enough.
YES, I have not been eating enough, not nearly.
A glitch that can TOTALLY impede weight loss and maintenance.
Now, that does not mean I am eating burgers, fries and all that, because it’s not Fat Bomb KETO kind of lifestyle.
Rather, this lifestyle is manageable, maintainable and will be with me for the rest of my life.
Today, I just want to share my recipe with you. That’s it.
My Big Bowl of Yum is my Noom Green Meal and it’s just ONE of 3 meals I eat in a day.
Is my stomach super full after I eat this? Um, yeah!
This meal is so flexible as you can eat it as a salad or as lettuce wrap sandwiches. FOODGASM!
Since there’s so much mystery behind NOOM, let me share just a glimpse of a meal.
NOOM Green Foods.
This recipe is mine. It’s unofficially part of the Noom Green Foods list, so check out the list to verify.
Inside the recipe, if you want to be a real rebel, you can spike it up with some fun Yellow and Red Food List items.
Yeah, I did! Don’t hold back. Splurge.
You can Google and find a list of Noom’s Green Foods, or you can join the plan for a 2-week trial.
Absolutely FREE for 2 weeks.
Want to know something, FREE Is a great thing because those 2 weeks are going to define you.
It’s not challenging. Well, it could be if you eat junk food only, but, most of us are not that eater.
Honestly. with about 10 minutes on the NOOM site, filling in a little about you and then subscribing to the FREE trial, you can’t miss.
Your lifestyle sits in the palm of your hands, the smartphone.
Yes, you need a phone to get the app that will be used for about 5 minutes a day.
There’s not a large learning curve, other than eating more than you might normally have (in my case).
For others, it is going to be getting in more of the GREEN foods.
Honestly, it’s sinfully easy, and you feel good and hydrated and it has nothing to do with glasses of water you have to check off.
You should already be drinking water. NOOM Is not about consuming mega glasses of water and sitting on the latrine all day.
That’s those other FAD DIETS that come and go and count points or load you on things you never would eat!
Today, It’s About The Green Noom Food Choices and my Recipe
For those that are Costco ‘ites’, those disciples that love and live out of the club, you will love NOOM even more.
Also for anyone who shops at ALDI, or other large warehouse clubs, they work well for pricing and food options.
Why? At warehouse clubs, a lot of the items you normally would buy are GREEN and better yet in larger quantities.
I simply went in with foods I love, purchased and checked each one along the way with the FOOD Scanner.
As the Food Scanner lit GREEN, I popped it in the cart of course with recipes already planned based on my eating preferences.
When something registered Yello, I considered other ways to purchase, like big box stores, for lesser quantity.
But, that said, that’s just me. For some of you, when you find a Yellow, you might be more committed.
I, however, am not gonna eat chickpeas, more than once a week. Just not my gig even the vegetarian that I am.
Get NOOM to make the change and you will totally NOT regret it.
At the end of 14 days, if you don’t like the FREE that you just had to learn NOOM and see what you are doing wrong when you eat, stop it.
Don’t continue on. I mean, it’s really a no-hassle program.
To be honest, I investigated NOOM before I started. All I have found is that NOOM Really wants you to stop your membership after 4 months.
It is no hassle because you should KNOW what you need to KNOW by then. All you have to do is keep on, keep on at what you’ve learned.
Not convinced. Dive in, take the Free Trial and you will see what I mean. Heck after one week, you will know more about what you are not doing right in your current eating lifestyle.
Small changes LEAD TO huge improvements.
