How is your Wednesday going?? I'm happy its hump day! With swim team practice, band camp, soccer camp and swim lessons this week I'm feeling a little stressed getting out the door in the mornings. We are supposed to be on summer break, right?! lol. Not so much this week. 6 days ago
I sent you an email answering your questions :0) When I posted that fruit was just sugar with vitamins I expected some backlash on my comments section, lol, but its true. In one of my books the authors states that your body doesn't know if you are putting in a 30g carbs/sugars of Coca Cola or a 30g carbs/sugar extra large banana. There are obviously more vitamins in the banana but what your body does with the sugar found in each is the same. I used to eat a banana every day. 30 g BOOM. I am trying to stay UNDER 30 g total now. Geesh. I figured between my Cliff Bar and my Banana I was eating like 65 g of carbs BEFORE lunch! Ugh. No wonder I felt crummy.
I think its really good that your DH has kept his weight off. My DH is trying. He has about 100 lbs to lose. But he relies on me heavily for information about what to eat and he doesn't keep track of his carbs or calories at all. In order to really lose he is going to need to take ownership of his journey but I cannot convince him of it. 6 days ago
And I'm so happy for you about how much better you are feeling! Its amazing how many symptoms are caused by the foods we are eating....what general society is pushing frankly. The government nutritional guidelines are actually making people sick and that is really unacceptable. Keep up the good work and when you get overwhelmed by the doubters just seek out the LC teams here ...they are full of well meaning people with a lot of knowledge! 7 days ago
