Dr Oz: Emotional Eating
Dr Oz introduced some Weight Loss Heroes to his audience, and his next story was about Jayme, an admitted Emotional Eater who weighed 304 pounds. She grew up heavy and found comfort early on by eating food. No matter what happened in her life, she would turn to food.
When her sister asked her to be Maid of Honor in her wedding, Jayme hit a breaking point. She was over 300 pounds and her fears and insecurities came to the surface. But she wanted to be there for her sister, so she committed to losing weight. She achieved her goal, shedding 160 pounds and getting into the best shape of her life.
Dr Oz: Weight Loss Journey
Though she said it was hard, she feels that she did it the right way. Jayme told everyone she could about starting her weight loss journey, because she needed all the support she could get. She slowly discovered that she loves running, and now she is working up to running 13 miles at once, a big jump from the two minutes at a time she began with.
Dr Oz: Food Prep & Microwave To Zap Emotional Eating
Jayme used the microwave as a secret weapon in her weight loss plan. Each Sunday, she would get her food for the week and spend the day preparing and portioning her meals, storing them in the refrigerator or freezer. That meant she could just pop something in the microwave and have it ready in minutes.
Before this plan, she did not know good portion control and would eat until she felt full. She now has three to four ounces of protein as one serving, along with two cups of vegetables and a cup of fruit.
Dr Oz: Brown Rice & Sweet Potatoes
On Sundays, she makes a large batch of Steel Cut Oats, portioning it in muffin tins and freezing this as breakfast each morning, when she eats it with a serving of fruit.
Jayme told Dr Oz her favorite carb choices are Brown Rice and Sweet Potatoes. She also cooks using Coconut Oil or Olive Oil. She told Dr Oz that this has transformed her physical as well as emotional health, and she has never felt better. What do you think about Jayme’s strategy for sucess? It is hard to argue with her results!
