Well, today is the day that I am officially starting my new WOE. For the last couple of weeks, I have increased my physical activity, you know, the dreaded E word.
Anyway, I have started today on the South Beach diet. I have been doing a lot of research on the plan. Are any of you following this plan? Basically, this plan was started by a cardiologist in South Beach Florida thus the name. This is not a low carb diet, or low fat per se. He claims that we need to learn how to eat good carbs and good fats. It is divided into 3 phases. Phase one is the hardest and most strict. It lasts only two weeks, and you have to rid your body of sugar and flour....and by doing this, your body stops craving the refined carbs...the stuff that packs on the pounds....(and the ones I love by the way!) You know, the pizza, pasta, baked good, fast food. UGH.....anyhoo, after the first two weeks you slowly start introducing "carb foods" back into your diet, like fruits, whole grains, and such.
So, this is my deal. Funny because it really makes sense to me. I am a firm beleiver that any plan will work for people, as long as they stick with it, and makes it work for them!!! Now that is the part I usually have trouble with...the consistency. SO, I need you all to help me be disciplined with my physical activities, and keep me consistent. Thanks
