Have been checking out marks website and finally bought his book which arrived in the mail yesterday. Everything seems to make sense to me, I had a late night reading! Oops failure on one of the steps about getting enough sleep. :-)
I'm 47 and probably carrying about 4-5kilos (about 9-12 lbs) of extra weight, all around my middle. I have no waist to speak of anymore but am mostly tiny everywhere else. I feel lethargic and bloated most of the time. I do not want to continue feeling like this.
I am going to start with a vengeance come 1 April ( on the PB. At the moment I am in the middle of home renovations and have no kitchen for at least another week or 2. I also figure that if I have the low carb flu thing, it will be best when I am at home over a long easter weekend and not having to come to work.
I think I will find it hard as I dont eat fruit, and am not really big on salads. Perhaps I just need to get more creative. I love meat though and my vegetables cooked. My partner and I tried a few days "carb free" about a month ago and it was hard, although we probably didnt eat enough fat then. We are more mentally prepared for it now and have decided we need to have a meal plan. I dont want to be going down a heavy duty path of calorie counting or figuring out ratio's. I just want to feel healthier and happier about myself... and have a waist again :-)
I would be grateful for any advice that anyone has to give.
