The past seven days, I did an hour of Zumba to exercise. My husband and I also walk and jog in the morning when it's not raining. Apart from the daily exercise, I also closely monitored my calorie intake. I make sure that I have enough fiber in every meal. Sometimes, I get to take C-Lium Fibre twice a day when I eat food that's been cooked in oil.
The Food and Nutrition Institute of the Department of Science and Technology recommends taking at least 20 to 25 grams a day. Lack of fiber not only causes digestion problems but also increases the risk of intestinal bleeding, coronary heart disease, and diabetes. One teaspoon of C-Lium Fibre is already equivalent to 14 tablespoons of insoluble fiber from oats and cereals.
I believe C-Lium Fibre has helped me maintain my blood sugar level in the healthy level. My blood sugar level 2 hours before I took my lunch on Day 1 of this challenge was 9.4 mmol/l. Third day into the challenge and it was down to 5.6 mmol/l. (I'm targeting a 4!)Meanwhile, my blood pressure on Day 1 was 150/89. As of this writing, it's 129/91. I test my blood sugar level and measure my blood pressure at the same time everyday because I'm monitoring the changes. The weighing scale did not show any change but I lost 2 inches off my waistline. Also, my menstrual period finally arrived after close to 4 months of waiting. Take note, I did not induce it with medications.
I know I still have a long way to go to reach my goal. It may even take me 10 months to get rid of the 73 lbs I need to lose. So far, I'm so happy with the numbers!
