How nice to see people visiting and leaving comments! Hello, NarcoJenn, Stratford Man, and Siobhan! My husband is just fine with me cooking Primally for dinner, and he will eat it without complaint. Well, he does complain about the amount of steak but other than that, as long as I cooked it, he'll eat it. Oh, and he doesn't really like veggies; only green beans, corn (um, Love, that's a grain), maybe steamed carrots. Now, I do sometimes make mashed potatoes (homemade!) or white rice.
Right now I am watching Dr Oz while prepping dinner. He's talking about the HCG diet. I can't believe people do this! I have a friend who did it, and she and her husband lost weight, but once they stopped with the injections the weight came back quickly. Shocking, I know! It's a lifestyle, people! It's not a long term solution! If you truly want health and to not be fat, change your life forever, not for a few months. And change your mindset.
I've decided to say Screw It to my family (really, just the Husband) and eat how I need to eat for optimal health and wellness. It's not going to be easy but I need to do this for myself. I miss M&M's and I miss Publix roast beef sandwiches, but I don't miss the yeast infections that come along with those things. Or the headaches I get trying to give it all up again. I want to live healthy and for a long time. I want to be the active old person who gets around easily then drops dead when it's time. I don't want to be dependent on medications or doctor's appointments or surgeries.
Dr Oz, GO AWAY!!
