I have been reading about different ways of eating (for want of a better way of describing it). Now I know that I’m probably going to repeat what many others say on the www yep probably right but I want it here…. for me….so I can look at this and reinforce my thoughts.
If my www mutterings and musings help someone else then that’s great because I have honestly found so many different writings on the www that have helped me at different times why not add one more to the mix. I know it’s not easy to put yourself out there because people can read it and judge you – but hey people look at you and judge you so what’s new …the www just puts it more out there.
I want to make sure that I can keep this up this time and not see this as a diet but as a way of eating forever…..I’ve tried every other thing going (I think) …every faddy diet I can think of I’ve tried it…and.they.don’t.work.
Oh yes you lose the weight quickly initially..and sometimes you need that when you’re starting out but it’s about all things in moderation (like so many things in life …sucks I know).
This time no faddy crap I’m going to use this style of eating of eating as a template because it reduces carbs and because I know carbs don’t do me any favours either weight or digestion wise. I’ve discovered some of it could be considered “Primal” if you want to label what I’m doing… as I’m trying to avoid processed anything….to be honest I do’t really care what name you give it as long as it works. All I know is I’m not sure I can commit to eating Paleo as I’d miss cheese too much and given I like cheese A LOT and I’m not prepared to give it up because that is a sure fire way for me to fail.
I am going to be quite strict with myself to begin with and track my calories, exercise and carbs. I’m hoping after a while I won’t need to be so strict with myself once I’ve got the visual of quantities seared into my brain. …and if I slip …well I’ll have all the tools to get myself back in check.
Enough muttering now though time to keep on keeping on.
Good Luck where ever you are in the world with your eating journey.
