Yes its suposed to be balanced, and yes I ate like a pig, but I tell you the first two weeks I lost 9 lbs and thats eating everything in site, I mean everything. The week after that I didn't lose b/c I wasn't exacly a good girl. My fault, not the diets. I'm buckling down and I have a ton of salad and fruit in my frig so I can gorge on that first and then eat a normal (what ever that means) meal.
I plan on measuring out everything (except fruit & salad). I know I'll definitly lose this way.
I was going to do atkins but I have 3 parties this month and atkins being restricted and me knowing how I am, I will not survive those parties. Why torchur myself right !
I've tried every diet known to man kind, I can not follow them. The minute I stick a piece of bread or what not (carb) in my mouth for breakfast it sets a bomb off in my body and I eat continiously all day long.
This low carb eating has really calmed the beast for the most part. No matter which plan I chose, I know I will have to put up with something, wether it be starving, or giving up your favorite foods. With CAD its no different. I'm hungry during the day which is fine, I can bear with that, but at night I can go home and not worry about what I can and can't have.
Tonight is salad w/blue cheese dressing (yes the real stuff), watermellon. Then I will portion out the whole wheat pasta and stuff a few meat balls down the old cake hole and wahlah! I can have desert but I will skip it. Maybe this weekend
Angi, I just purchased new book, got it used from amazon for $1.50 can't wait to get it !!
