Copying this from another post so I have a reference for later..
Dr. Phils weightloss program
American Heart Assoc. 3 day diet program
The Cabbage Soup Diet
Jorge Cruse eating program
Sugar addiction diet
10-12 glasses of water daily
A doctor 800 calorie salad all day restricted protein program
Whey protein shakes and bars
I will not take pills..
and I am sure many others...
None of them... NONE OF THEM!!!!!
had or have brought me to the level of WELL BEING that I feel inside my mind and body... pay attention.... WELL BEING!!!
I am losing weight at a very slow and steady pace.. very slow.. and weight loss is why I am here.. but its goin..
the "side effect" if you will has been WELL BEING....
a strong balanced mood (wasn't expecting that)
a level, balanced energy that carries me throughout the day (wasn't expecting that)
free moving joints and lack of joint pain (wasn't expecting that)
no more headaches (wasn't expecting that)
no more sugar/carb cravings or binge eating even at that time of the month (wasn't expecting that)
no more night sweats (wasn't expecting that)
an optimistic outlook and anticipation of the day and what is to come (wasn't expecting that)
no more hypoglycemic episodes, I can go 24 hours or better effortlessly and naturally, not planned, without eating and not even care (definitely wasn't expecting that)!!!
NO GUILT.. NO SHAME.. NO BLAME..
I can go anywhere, any restaurant and find SOMETHING as close to primal as possible and eat it and not feel denied..
I feel completely comfortable and EMPOWERED by my choices now.. I feel STRONG.. mentally, emotionally..
I think you get where I am going with this...
I am not on any major supplements.. I don't do any major exercising (would like to start sprints today though!)
I eat bananas , I had a small hot fudge sunday (no nuts) the other day to celebrate the opening of our local ice cream shoppe with my children!
I have kept dairy in my life, occassionally.. I like my meat!!! I like my veggies.. fruit, seeds, nuts.. YUM!!
I miss the ease of bread products but oh well!
This is right for me..
