Speaking of New Beginnings...
I have me some fat to lose. Yes, about sixty or seventy pounds worth. I could even lose eighty if my body suddenly decides to be thin. I doubt my body will decide that. At any rate, it's time to feed myself differently.
I already started an exercise program. Got a head start on that score when I joined Curves last November. I love going to Curves.
Now, what's my diet plan, you ask: The Metabolism Miracle. Yes, I know. Low carb again. But here's the rub: I counted SO MANY calories last year, and all to no avail. This diet seems smarter than others I've tried. And if you want to diss it, do so on your own blog. It also seems long-term liveable beause after an 8 week phase one of low carb eating, the purpose of which is to rest my poor beleaguered pancreas, the diet introduces careful amounts of very healthy carbs like milk and fruit and whole grain bread again. So the low carb is not forever.
If you have a spare tire around your belly that you can't seem to get rid of, this might be the diet for you. If diabetes runs in your family, this might be the diet for you. If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, this might be the diet for you. If you are an "apple" instead of a "pear" this might be your diet. If suddenly you can't lose weight the way you used to, this might be for you. Check it out.
By the way, I stole the image above from www.amazon.com. It's a great place to buy this book.
