Ok so yes I have heard about cutting out carbs but I am a walking loaf of white bread and it was so hard to give it up. So, what I did was two weeks ago I made a plan to cut out the cookies and breads. We have food bank day on fridays and you would not believe the goodies the bakeries and grocery stores give to us. I always said to myself I will just leave before I get to the baked goods but every week there I was picking up a cake or some other decadent yummy thing.
The first thing I have done is skip the free food and to cook duplicate meals so the next meal was ready. The second is to allow my self 4 pieces of sourdough bread a week. I had a fried egg sandwich and two days later a steak sandwich.
In two weeks time I have lost 8lbs and do not feel hungry all the time. 120 more to go. Yes I have gained 80 lbs due to first. feeling sorry for myself and yes I would eat the comfort food. Who would have thought you’d get the munchies from prednisone.
My rhumy told me to eat a huge bowl of salad every night. I choose night because that is when I used to eat the most. Anyway I eat 3-4 salads a week. Sometimes I throw a piece of chicken in or an avocado. And yes the bowl is huge. We have pre made salads in bags n I use those and can almost eat the whole bag. The left overs I eat for lunch with a piece of meat with it.
So in closing, I eat meats and veggies and fruit. Not as much fruit as veggies.
I will do it this time because I have to. My doctor said I am pre diabetic and not to worry about it but I do as I don’t want to deal with diabetes also.
I really craved the sweets the first week but this week I don’t. That would be nice if the cravings stay away..
