Conny Van Dyke
The #1 thing that I have learned when accepting the custom Zig-Zag meal plan from my trainer, Sam Page is that, when you are given the plan, don’t question it; do it. Do not start substituting foods or asking Sam if you may substitute foods. You have engaged a professional and it makes no sense to augment, delete or substitute information which you have decided to follow. No more than you would second-guess your auto mechanic, your doctor, your lawyer or your accountant. If you adhere to the plan, you will see a marked change in your health and in your body contour/shape. After only 10 days, I began to see difference in the way my clothing fit me.
Conny Van Dyke is an accomplished actress, singer and songwriter whose career has spanned 20 years. Her guest starring role on CBS’ “Cold Case” last fall marked her return to prime time.
Although looking at the numbers on a scale can be helpful, it is also noticing the change/shift in your body shape. Muscle mass develops and body fat decreases. Both things are necessary to achieve a healthier and more physically attractive you. I have adopted the plan sincerely enough that it has changed the way in which I perceive food and it has broadened my understanding of how my body is happier. Even on my “Cheat Days” (Wednesday and Saturday), there are so many things that I would have eaten last year which I now wouldn’t think of eating! This includes the portions of these things. If you pay attention to your body, you will notice that it is repulsed when you even think of consuming a huge lump of something heavy and laden with sugars and starches. Your body has begun to respond to the right things it has been given and no longer wants to break-down for utilization the junk with which it was once forced to work.
Yes, I have lost 27 pounds. It has made a huge difference in my appearance but, and more importantly, it has made a huge difference in the way I carry myself, my ability to think more clearly and to be present. I do not have the same pain intensity in my back because I am not carrying the same load around. That means a lot to someone like me who has had 2 back operations and has some arthritis.
My skin tone is much better, I am less apt to have bags under my eyes and my muscle tone has vastly improved. I have more energy and I am less likely to sit around or to turn-down opportunities for activities.
So, when Sam gives you a food plan, like I used to say to some of the men in my romantic life…JUST SHUT UP AND DANCE!
