I wanted to share something interesting that happened today. I have been on the SBD for almost a month now and have lost 12 pounds. I have found it pretty easy and am really impressed that my cravings have just about gone away. Today I was running errands and I didn't eat breakfast this morning because I am not usually hungry when I first get up in the morning. Before I started on the SBD, one of my worst habits was having breakfast at McDonald's or Burger King. I would have a breakfast sandwich just about every morning and I remember thinking to myself on more than one occasion, "This is so delicious. I know it's VERY bad for me, but I don't know if I can live without being able to have this". How ridiculous is that?
But that's how I felt. This morning I went off SBD and had a breakfast sandwich from McD's, mostly out of habit and laziness. Miracle of miracles -- I didn't think it tasted that good after all. I can make a much better one at home with WW english muffins and low fat ingredients. And after I finished the sandwich, I just threw away the hashbrowns.
I assume I won't have a "craving" for that again any time soon.
I'm just having a lot of fun discovering different foods and recipes I can have on plan. I thought it was interesting that for me an experience of going off plan will, hopefully, actually help me stay on plan in the future.
Anyone else have any similar kind of experience?
