Starting Again! Time to Get Into Shape

This is my 3rd attempt with Spark People; I wanted to start fresh with the new year since I gained the weight I originally lost to begin with. My previous work schedule had much influence over my tracking abilities, but alas that has changed!

Here is to keeping accurate records of my food and activity habits! 2013 is the year of change!

The greatest piece of advice that I have to give you is make the base of your food pyramid vegetables and fruits-in that order-instead of starch/grains. Whole grains ARE good for you but vegetables are so much better. When I eat them, I am fuller faster and stay full longer. When I have processed foods, I find myself craving them more, and getting hungry more. It takes a little while to not crave sugar so much, as our body does need SOME sugar, such as that in fresh fruits.
Eat non-processed foods as much as humanly possible. Frequent the public/farmers markets in your area. Drink enough water.
If you have Netflix, watch "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and "Hungry for Change"...It didn't turn me into a juicer, but I sure do make sure I get my veggies, fruits, and other plants!!!
