I've been on this journey for a month now, and in that time, I've started to see food in a whole new way. I no longer see a bbq chicken breast with bbq sauce...I now see 17 g protein with 3 g saturated fat. Carrots are no longer carrots, they are now 5 g complex carbs. I'm obsessed now and find that everything I eat falls into 1 of 5 catagories: protein, bad fat, mono fat, complex carbs or simple carbs(avoid white food). I see food more as fuel & nutrients now, and I want to keep it that way.

The "diet" process is very important because thats where we are truly learning about the food we eat and the activity we need. That is also where we develop the "if I can do this, I can do anything" attitude.

With everything you have learned on your journey...I'm sure you'll do great on the next journey, whatever it is.
