I am ready, but...

Thursday, October 04, 2012

I am ready to make a change.. ready to feel better, look better and be better. I am still so confused though that I don't know where to start or what to do. I am the type of person that believes everything they hear and when it comes to health no one can seem to agree on anything which leads me to become overwhelmed and just give up.

Low carb eating allows me to lose weight without dreading meals or feeling deprived but no one can agree on if it is healthy or will cause heart attacks.. my family has a history of heart issues so that terrifies me. I am fine with being a vegetarian and have done it in the past but only gained weight steadily for the year and a half I ate that way. I have recently become interested in Paleo (primal diet) but with all that fruit I know I would not lose any weight, besides the fact that every Paleo diet preaches organic produce and grass fed organic meats which are not in my budget. Even cutting portions does not work for me, not to mention the fact that I still hang on to the beliefs of every diet I have tried... while eating low carb I cant stop thinking about the fat and while eating low fat I think about the carbs.

I wish this could be simple, why can't humans survive on water and air? lol
