Today is the first day

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I keep trying to figure out all this nutrition stuff and no matter what I do, my weight goes up. Maybe down for a day or two, but then up again. I really think I need to give up wheat, but my husband loves bread, pancakes, etc. Then there is so much confusing info out there - eat carbs, don't eat carbs, eat fat, don't eat fat!!!! We do like to eat organic when possible and are getting much better at that. So many diet programs want you to eat different processed foods, and I think the whole foods way is better, sort of the hunter/gatherer type. I saw an ad last night that talked about added fruit flavor. I'm sure that flavor was chemically produced. Why not just eat the fruit?? Anyway, now that I have finally figured out how to blog, maybe I can keep at it and figure out the whole food thing. We are also trying to reduce my husband's blood pressure naturally so are working on that along with his chronic pain issues and my anxiety and depression!!! Lots of stuff to work on!!!!!! emoticon

    Welcome to Spark.
I think you should look up the Paleo lifestyle. It sounds like it's something you could really benefit from, especially if you're considering giving up wheat. I've given it up and it's the best thing I could ever have done. AND - for an added bonus - I've found delicious ways to make 'bread' and 'pancakes' wheat-free! There are so many recipes out there that you'll be surprised that you don't have to give up much.

I think it's just all about trial and error...finding out what works for you. Once you have and you're in your groove, you'll be flying. Good luck emoticon

    Make sure you track everything you eat on the food tracker and I'm sure you'll get it figured out pretty quickly. Losing weight is simply a matter of burning more calories than you eat, but I've found I have to be very diligent at keeping track of food amounts. Our eyes deceive us... get a food scale if you don't have one, you'll be surprised at how much you're really eating! emoticon
