OK..I needed to do one more blog tonight
First off I know how to eat.
I have read just about every diet book.
My husband did Body for Life and was successful!
I have also been successful at losing weight but just never stuck with anything very long.
I do not believe that one way of eating or one plan works for everyone.
You may do low carb and that works for you or high protein.
When I started this way back in June I started with doing weight watchers once again and once again I quit but I did lose...some
It was not until I decided to count calories that I realized that I had to do what works for me.
So I get that "they" say to have 5-6 meals
That you should have protein for breakfast and not skip lunch.
I get all that and for some of you that may work.
If you read skinny bitch it is ONLY fruit for breakfast and that is what works for me.
I don't have a set regimen. I don't have 6 small meals or eat BLD and snacks.
I eat when I am hungry. I eat NO PROCESSED FOODS.
I eat NO CANDY
I pretty much eat WHOLE FOODS.
If your great grandmother has no idea what the heck it is I don't eat it!!!
That pretty much is my plan. Lot of fruit,veggies,lean protein and natural sugar.The way it is suppose to be. So no matter how I ingest it or at what hour I just make sure that I stay at about 1200 calories.
I am far from perfect. Some days I go over and many days I go under.
I also am not very active. I also sleep a lot more then the average person.
So having less wake hours means there are less hours in the day to eat.
That can be a good thing. I use to have insomnia pre-eating healthy and I would sit up all night and eat. I started eating healthy and what would you know??? I now sleep!!
But since I have fatigue so bad from the MS I am only up about 12 hours. Try fitting 6 meals into 12 hours.
I am NEVER hungry at lunch and if I do have lunch I am not hungry for dinner and I miss the only meal I have with my husband.
So as you can see. It works different for everyone for different reasons.
Don't get me wrong...I appreciate all the advice but felt I should explain my reason for the way I do things.
I may try add a very small something mid day. But eating when I am not hungry just won't happen.
Oh and if I drink any more water I think I will float away.
120 ounces is more then enough.
Talk with yah later..I have to pee ( :
