I also feel really good health wise. When I told my husband I'd lost 6 more pounds which brings the total up to 30 pounds in exactly 2 months he was a bit surprised," But you don't seem to be dieting at all! You eat really well." I get his surprise- he's seen me eat pancakes with butter and honey, eggs & Toast , all kinds of muffins, fried chicken fingers and catfish to name a few. I truly now believe that Linda Goodman is right-it's not about calories. It's about only eating when physically hungry, and for me the artful combination of foods that keeps my Glycemic load at an even keel. It's about moving my body more as well. All those things I listed above add up calorically, but they don't have sugar or refined flour in them. They are homemade in a way that is healthy for my body.
I'm still studying what those healthy ways are, how different foods effect me and my weight. If I feel like a nap as soon as I eat, then I know something in my meal has a higher glycemic load than I thought and I eliminate it. I've also come to realize that if I have really sudden "cold" symptoms it's really an allergy to something I just ate . My body is way smarter than I am and lets me know when it's not happy with my choices.
Read past post and you'll understand how I am managing to eat only when I'm hungry, stop when I'm full. Leaving that last 3rd piece of toast or eggs on the plate is brand spanking new to me. For that matter, eating a healthy breakfast is new as well, breakfast use to be basically- well-sugar-even if it looked like a "healthy" cereal or breakfast bar.
Another new thing is tapping the Saints game and heading out to work in the garden instead as I'm about to do right now. Have a joyful day-I know I will.
