Today marks Day 7 on my new diet. I joined a 12 week diet club that a friend of mine was starting. We are following the Transitions Lifestyle program and meeting once a week at her house. We are paying $5.00 a week with the person who loses the 2nd most percentage of weight getting their money back and the winner taking the rest of the money.
This diet is a Glycemic index plan so basically it is low carb and low fat. When I first looked at it, I wondered what I would be able to eat but I have found that it isn't that bad.
I have discovered that:
Egg beaters in the microwave is a very yummy and easy breakfast - esp. when you throw in some peppers and onions and top it with a little salsa
My son is a vegetarian and I have been stealing his fake sausage and fake bacon products. The fake sausage is pretty good.
Green bananas have lower carbs than ripe bananas.
How much I like a good stirfry.
I have a lot more energy when I eat fewer carbs.
That fruit just doesn't cut it when you want a "dessert".
That the worse thing about a diet is that you are planning what you are able to eat so you
think about food all of the time.
I really need to work on drinking more water.
I welcome any and all diet tips - what worked for you and what didn't work.
Here's to being healthy and (hopefully) looking better!
