My 2 cents worth ~
Start making 1 better choice after another. Choose the next best thing.Well, I do the "Good Ole' Fashioned Diet". Actually, I like to think of it as a Food Plan that I use every day. I make choices according to the Food Pyramid.
I aim to eat . . .
*Within the various food groups AND spaced out throughout the day
2. Within Caloric goal. Logging regulary is a primary focus.
3. Per proper portions. Teaching myself portions & I'm becoming more accurate.
4. Better/Smarter choices. Lots of reading, being online here helps. Example: More wheat versus than white.
5. For long-term/Lifestyle - the marathon versus the sprint. Working on good habits to become 2nd nature. Already some are.
6. Consistently Healthy.
I've whacky blood levels (tendency toward hypothyroidism, do have high triglycerides, & indication of leading toward pre-diabetes). A dietician from the Dr's office has been working with me. We'll see how my blood levels are the next time they order it. BUT so far I'm losing weight, gaining strength & endurance, and leading by example for my family. It's a lot of battles to fight, but so far it's worth it!
Hope you soon find your way to eating healthy.
