About two years ago I started overhauling my diet and lifestyle, which at the time was largely fast food based. I started distance running and decided to become a vegetarian. I lost a lot of weight in that time, going from 260+ to around my goal of 185, but I'm not happy with my body composition... which seems to be almost the same. I'm just a smaller version of the chubby guy I was. To top it off, I'm gaining some of the weight back and it's extremely frustrating.
I'm sure some of you could have seen that coming a mile away, but I had no idea what I was getting myself into. After reading about how chronic cardio and very high carb diets lead to the situation I'm in, I decided to give the Primal Blueprint a try.
The problem that I have is that I can't seem to stick with it. I start out every day with the best intentions, and end up caving when I get within 50 feet of something sweet. I've basically been running off of sugar for so long that it feels like I'm having withdrawals.
Is this a normal part of the transition? And is there a way to make it easier to get through?
I really want to give PB an honest shot, but I can't seem to get out of the starting blocks.
Thanks in advance for your help.
