How are you all going to do with the Holidays this year? I know what I am going to do. The same as I have been doing. I don't plan on eating anything I know that will destroy all I am working for. I am looking for recipes that will work for Holiday fare.
Since I have really put strict rules on what I eat, it's going to be pretty hard finding suitable ones. I will have Turkey, never wrong with that. And sweet potatoes and yams are always good. And there is several pumpkin recipes for picky eaters like myself. Even though I am not the biggest fan of pumpkin.
I will look for recipes then blog them to share with any others that are trying to watch their sugar and carb intake.
Halloween usually gets me, because of the candy. This year since I have been sugar free for almost 7 months, it seems like I am not interested or craving any of it this year. So I feel a big "WIN" for that. I will swear on my life, you give up sugar most of the war with weight problems and health problems end.
And there is recipes for the sweet tooths where you can sub items for the sugars they post in some of the recipes, so all is not lost, when giving up all the Holiday foods that make you fat. And we all know that for a fact.
How many overeat on the Holidays? I used to get that second plate, because it tasted so good, but I paid for it later, with a bloated stomach and feeling so miserable from eating too much. It's going to be cool blogging what I did over the Holidays. Some of the people I will be sharing the Holidays with, haven't seen my 50lb weight loss, and it is going to be interesting when I see their reactions to it.
I don't believe in saying, it's the Holidays let it go, enjoy blah blah blah. Actually from Halloween on it seemed I was eating the most junk, and letting it go, and that is what gave me diabetes 2. So Holidays or not, find a way to still stick with eating healthy and still enjoying the Holidays without guilt and remorse. I know we all can do it. You just have to want to. This is a lifestyle change, not a diet, where one is deprived. It's an eating plan to survive, and stay healthy through the Golden years and beyond.
