Wink introducing myself

Hi all,
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?

Karen,
welcome to FitDay! It sounds like your plan works well for you when you are on it. Good luck with it. I assume you are eating more red meat, which is why you have gout??
