Being advised by a psychologist who specialises in eating disorders...he wants me to follow optifast program but I had a bit of an episode on it So Im considering just replacing 2 meals a day instead *sigh* Im all over the place! I just want to know what to do to get this ball rolling! lol
I'm doing a mutant version of Sureslim. It's basically low carb and reasonably low fat and high fibre. This time round I'm also aiming to have unprocessed and the freshest foods possible. Have been getting my veges from the farmers market etc, spending extra on organic free range eggs. I have found it much easier to include more vegetables in my diet when they have much more flavour then those from the vege aisle in a supermarket. It takes effort and planning, but if anyone is worth effort and planning isn't it me and my family?
I'm also exercising 3-4 times a week. I've joined a "curves" gym mainly because it is a couple of streets from work and I can work out first thing in the morning while my kids are still being looked after.
Weight watchers again .. I lost almost 20 kg with ww a few years ago, put it on again for a variety of reasons, and am now slowly removing ity again. Like SHelbel, I like the structure and flexibility. Counting calories does not work as well for me......
I'm following my own structured program. I was counting kilojoules but I became to obsessed by the numbers and felt constricted by it. Now I just eat clean. Avoid processed food, cutting back on bread (my one vice which lets me down). So lots of fruit and vegetables with a little bit of protein. I also exercise most days for about 2 hours. Spilt with a morning run and then evening exercise of aerobics, cardio equipment or weights. Although I hate doing weights so I don't usually do a lot of it. This seems to be working great for me and I'm getting good results. It's something I can stick to for life. I'm enjoying all my home made fresh unprocessed foods. Sometimes I do splurge on my alcohol consumption just not all the time.
