I hope all of you are well, and going STRONG
My eating "issues" have been no secret... I have blogged very freely about my struggles
Sorry you have had to read about my whining and all my frustrations.
So I have been Praying... crying... maybe even throwing little tantrums
During all of this The Lord has led me to a NEW way of eating.
I had to get down to the root of the issue... Those darn CRAVINGS!!!
And how strong they were.
I don't like to talk about it... But I was diagnosed with diabetes as a teenager.
I believe in God's Healing... I have to do my part though.
I am insulin resistant. So I have always been taught to watch my carb intake...
BUT... Never to this level. I believe The Lord led many of my friends on Spark to email me... ALL of you that did emailed me about the SAME THING.
This new plan is just simply a Low Carb Eating Plan. I am eating foods I have cut out for years because they are so rich in fat.
I was shopping for the foods that were LOW in CALORIES and FATS. Therefor I was ALWAYS hungry...Never satisfied. Even though I stayed in my " carb range" on my Food Tracker I was still consuming too many carbs.
I know that this isn't right for everyone... But this is right for ME!
My body is EXTREMELY sensitive to sugar... And it was ruining my health. Even with meds, even with insulin my blood sugars were CRAZY.
I have been on this now for almost 2 weeks... The cravings are GONE!!!
The first 3 days were rough...I was
I'm shopping now for:
I should have done this all along, but I was just looking for low calorie, and low fat.
Last night I ate, pork chops with a mushroom gravy, spinach and romaine salad, and stuffed mushrooms... It was delish!!!
If you have any tasty recipes let me know.
This takes more time because I'm cooking different, putting everything together myself... Nothing from packages. BUT I must be prepared, because the other foods still call my name
I'll keep you posted about how this new way of eating is going... This can not be a diet... This MUST be a way of life.
I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST!!! So CAN "YOU"
God Bless all of you~Christina
