I’m back on track now. I have been walking everyday for an hour or more and then I ride my bike at least 1 hour. So far I have lost 6 lbs.
I have dumped the Atkins thing but I am still doing my own low carb thing. I am not eating any sugar or anything that is a simple carb. I am eating tons of veggies and enough protein. when I eat a carb it is a complex carb so my body will digest is slowly. I think this will be the best for me. When i took a break from Atkins my weight came back so fast and I gained more than I had lost so now I am working off 7 extra pounds………yuck. I know there is no way I am going to give up fruit and carbs all together. So I had to rethink my diet and think about what I will do forever not just for a short period of time.
I have not problem giving up sugar. I need to do this for my health. I am a sugar addict. I need to give it up for my self not just to lose weight ;so that is gone. I can live without french fries, white potatoes, and white flour; there is however no way I can give up bread, whole wheat, pasta, again whole wheat, or fruit. I love these things and I don’t see the point in denying myself for life. I just wont do it. So I read tons of info and think this will be better for me. I can still have my treats when i needs them but my over all food intake will be smaller and healthier.
