I defiantly have refined sugar and carb addiction. So I'm doing the ideal protein to detox. Thx for all the advise and support.
Me too, bread--I love it--and I ate too much of it, along with sugary items. I don't eliminate anything from my diet anymore, I just eat a lot less of it.
So for bread it's fairly easy to eat one slice instead of two--cake for me today is a sliver--and again what really is a huge help to me is myfitnesspal. I can eat breakfast and tell how many calories I have left that I can eat for the day. And just being aware
of that, for the day, is a huge help to me.
I lost about 18 pounds within a 6 month period, then it started to slow, then I was stuck on 6 pounds for months, until I uploaded myfitness pal--and I've lost another 2 pounds just because of being aware of what and how much I am eating.
If I am just starving--I will eat a tablespoon of all natural peanut butter
to get me to the next lunch--dinner whatever. I have been doing it for some time now, and I rarely get hungry anymore. I think my stomach shrank along with the rest of me.
