G’s Driver’s License Weight Challenge – Nutrition Plan Breakdown Part 1 and Day 7 Results

Nutrition Plan Breakdown Part 1

Vitamins – For my multivitamin, I take Women’s One A Day. The bottle lists that it supports heart health, immune health, bone health, physical energy, hair, skin, and nails. I take Vitamin C with Zinc for enhanced immune support. Vitamin D3 also supports bone and immune system health. My doctor specifically instructed me to add D3 to my vitamin regimen after last year’s annual physical/blood work. He said that most people would have this deficiency unless they literally worked under the sun all day, every day. I’ll say it again, though – do not follow my plan as it is customized to me. You should consult with your doctor, as well as get checked at least once a year.

I take chlorella once a day, and you can read more about it here.

Metamucil is a fiber supplement. I take the sugar-free kind. It tastes like Tang! Though it has other benefits, I take it for heart health (lowers cholesterol) and digestive health (helpful on a high-protein diet). I don’t necessarily take it for appetite control since I’m always eating on this plan, but it does list that as another benefit, as well as maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.

Water is a huge part of this plan. Before, when I wasn’t consistent with drinking lots of water, my weight would always be lower after a day that I especially drank a lot. I was surprised, of course, because you always hear about water weight. But my body has proven to retain less water the more I drink. Not scientifically speaking, I also read that fat leaves your body as water when you pee, so the more water I drink, the better (fat also leaves your body as water when you sweat and as carbon dioxide when you breathe out and that’s where the exercise plan comes in that I will break down later). Of course, water is important for a lot of other reasons not specifically related to weight loss, but for your overall health.
