Sass Yourself Slim Book Review


I have a desk job and I find myself snacking a lot.  There's always cake for anniversary's or candy around.  Does this sound familiar? Over the last few years the extra snacking has certainly tipped my scales in the wrong direction.  We're heading to a long weekend getaway without the kids next month and both hubby and I need to lose some extra weight so we can enjoy this trip to the fullest. 

I was given the opportunity to review the book S.A.S.S Youself Slim by Cynthia Sass.  The program promises up to an 8lb loss in the first five days. This certainly is appealing considering I can shift 1lb up or down with the wind.  The plan consists of a 5 day plan that jump starts your results.  You eat only 5 foods (raspberries, eggs, almonds, spinach and yogurt) for 5 days and if followed correctly will lose up to 7 lbs.  I'm sure its not for everyone but like me I want quick results because it motivates me to maintain it and lose more.  Cynthia has put together four daily delicious meals (scrambled egg, parfait, salad and smoothie) that you can repeat for the remaining 4 days which makes it simple for those 5 days.  It does have you drinking a smoothie at 10pm at night though.  The timing of the meals is as important as the food but its worth a shot for the weight loss goal.

Then you move onto the 25 day plan which helps you change the way you eat in a less dramatic fashion.  The 25 day plan calls for 4 meals a day, but not draws from a broad but specific array of food choices.  You may be able to drop a size in just one month! If you want to take control of your eating habits then this book is for you!

Weight Watchers endorsed Green Giant Boxed Vegetables Review & Giveaway

I'm currently on Weight Watchers - its a free program with my work which is a bonus but my goal is to lose weight and educate myself on eating healthily and learn and use portion control.  The Weight Watchers program works well with my busy schedule because rather than count calories, I count points.  Its not about being on a diet but more about eating right.  At first its a learning curve to determine how many points are in the food I eat but with time it becomes second nature.  Weight Watchers points are listed on all the Weight Watchers foods that I eat that makes keeping track a lot easier. 

Green Giant is the only frozen vegetable brand to be endorsed by Weight Watchers®, and nearly all endorsed varieties have a 1 or 2 PointsPlus® value per serving.  That's a small amount of points which is great as you can fill up on the good stuff making room for other goodies in your daily meals.  There are over 30 different Green Giant boxed vegetables varieties.  The best part is the boxed vegetables can also be mixed into family dinners for everyone to enjoy.  As a working Mom, Green Giant's boxed vegetables make their way to my dinner table on a regular basis as it is so convenient and easy to incorporate into my 30 minute meals.  Check out all the yummy recipes here.
