How Hubby lost "A Pound A Day"

You all have heard my stance on dieting.
Well, I'm a woman and entitled to change my mind.
Because change it I have.
Now whether I agreed with it or not I cannot deny results.
When my husband first told me about his plans to diet,
I had my concerns. He reassured me he would loose weight
in a healthy way. No tobacco sauce concoctions.
So, here's how he lost a total of 16 pounds since January 1st, that's a pound per day.
Knowledge is key.
Know your weight, height and BMI.
Find out how many calories it would take for you to maintain your current weight, gain weight or in most cases...loose weight.
Then, Count those calories.
Eat smart and know what and how much you are putting into your body.
My husband has been following 'Michi's ladder' for his diet.
He is eating ONLY from tiers one and two of the ladder.
This is considered a "near perfect" diet.
Which is no eas feat by the way.
I mean I'm eating from tiers 1,2, and 3 and still feel deprived.
No sugar, no butter, ONLY whole grains, fruit, veggies, the LEANEST of meats.
Combine the tiered diet with calculating calories down to the ounce; we use the My Fitness Pal app(which is awesome by the way).
Exercise. It takes a healthy diet and exercise to see a significant change.
Hubby has been working out two hours a day four days a week and using a program called ActiveTrax to customize each of his workouts. 
I am so proud of him!
He is just a couple of weeks away from his goal and I couldn't
be happier for him.
He made a plan, researched, executed his plan and is looking
MIGHTY FINE if I must say so myself.
Now, the next challenge....Coaching me as I go in.
I want to loose ten pounds and tone, tone, tighten!
Wish me luck. ;)
