So far, I’m 50 for 50.
I’ve gone 50 days without eating sugar, flour, potatoes, or bread. I haven’t had a single piece of candy – or gum. I’m completely done with soft drinks and I only drink water.
On September 29, 2008, I finally decided to focus, with all of my energy, on losing weight. I created my Health Optimization Plan and my Weekly Workout Plan – and I’ve (religiously) stuck to them both.
My diet, such as it is, consists primarily of –
Strawberries, almonds, cucumbers, lemons, lettuce, cashews, green apples, grilled chicken, turkey, lean beef, pecans, eggs, and water.
Basically, I’m following a lower-carb diet, as suggested by Doug Kauffman from Know The Cause. For the first four weeks, I was taking several anti-fungal supplements and now I’m taking pro-biotics.
I’m rarely hungry, and when I am, I simply eat one of the foods on the above list. I feel great – I feel better than I have in 5, maybe 10, years! Seriously. I’m exercising (a minimum of) 5 days a week, I’m sleeping better, and I have so much more energy.
I’m going to do this. I am going to reach a healthy, sustainable weight, and I’m going to feel good about myself. This time, unlike any other time in my adult life, I’m absolutely committed to being healthy.
50 days down, a lifetime to go. Rock on!!!
