Somersize – Explaining the Diet and Getting Support
When you hear someone say “I Somersize,” you might be wondering what they mean by that. It can get even more confusing when you find out that the term is directly related to popular actress Suzanne Somers.
When people say they’re Somersize, they’re talking about a specific way of eating to lose and maintain weight that was popularized by Suzanne Somers in a series of books. This weight loss program is all about combining foods, eliminating certain foods from your diet entirely, and emphasizing the consumption of other types of foods.
First and foremost, if you decide to try Somersize, it means eliminating foods like sugar and refined flour from your diet entirely. It would be hard to fault that; It’s well documented that these foods not only contain empty calories but can also be harmful to your health. When you eat carbohydrates on this diet, you are eating complex carbohydrates. Second, you need to follow some guidelines that you need to get used to.
When you eat Somersize, don’t eat carbohydrates with fats or proteins, although you can eat them with vegetables. You can eat proteins, fats, and vegetables together, and that includes things like cheese, butter, sour cream, and cream. Fruit must be eaten alone.
High carbohydrate meals or snacks should not be eaten within two hours of protein/fat meals and vice versa. No type of meal can be eaten within 20 minutes of eating fruit.
What does all this have to do with losing weight? Obviously a lot. People report great success with this diet, and one of the things they love about it is that they don’t have to count calories or carbs; You just have to stick to the rules.
People who are Somersize do better with support, especially since this type of diet can often be confusing. Support groups and online forums can be an invaluable way to keep up the incentive and sense of community that can help so much.
