I am starting over on a diet I did a few years back and lost over 80 pounds.
I went off it and gained it all back. I have several types of arthritis, the newbie being gout.
Got very tired of trying to do other peoples reditions of diets, e.g. richard simmons, dr. phil... so I made my own up called by my name lol
it was a mixture of the mediteranian type style eating and ours here in the good ole usa.. Even tho so many times my fat content went well past 35% it was good fats i was eating. Olive oil, avacados, nuts..etc... Maybe a few ounces of meat a day and lots of lugumes and beans.. I NEVER felt hungry, not ever.. and my caloric intake was between 1200 and 1500 per day..
Started out with a blood test showing cholestrerol very very high and also my blood pressure. That is what prompted me to diet.. within a month both problems were solved. Because I went back for another blood test to confirm.
I felt great... but, but, but......
I HATE MY KITCHEN. I dont want to be bothered by cooking all the time.
With me, eating every 2 hours did very well for me, I lost very nicely and like I said before, I was never hungry. My hatred for my kitchen is really what caused me to shuck my diet. haha... Now.. Im back at it again, because now I have gout to add to my ailments, which has came back since I decided I hated my kitchen, more than I loved myself. haha
Ok, enuff of me... how are you all doing with your life changes?
