"DIET"

Monday, April 25, 2011

SO I've done this before and maintained. Then I put some back on but I've maintained that. Now it's time to drop the extra & maintain again. So hubby says, "just DIET instead of lifestyle change" then maintain, which we already know you can do". He might have a point BUT I don't wanta hurt/shock/mess up my body either. Anyway, his suggestion is the ZONE diet (which his program promotes). I've done a little research on it & I'm just not sure. Then I saw a post from DIETITIANBECKY on here and I quote "Usually the ZONE is about:
40% carb, 30% protein and 30% fat

    that is pretty much what I stick to ...I go paleo/zonish....paleo says no dairy ...but I can't give that up...so sort kinds both...but the ratios and the combining protein/carb/fat at EVERY meal and snack def work for me!

    I recently switched back to a "diet." I wasn't having much success with tracking and it was making me insane, so I am doing the "17 day diet." It is new. I took a little heat on here for it, but one week into it I can already see the difference in myself. So do what you need to do, and get to that goal weight any healthy way you can. emoticon
