My Point System

Thursday, January 23, 2014

I've put a lot of thought into this. I have created a 5 point system that started when I began reading: In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan.

This is what I will keep in mind during the day and add up my points for the day.

1 point: Eat Real Food (see how Michael defines this in his book)
1 point: Eat Mostly Plants
1 point: Don't eat too much (oh dear…. the hardest part for me!)
1 point: Savor and enjoy each bite (another toughie! I eat way too fast.)
1 point: TRACK!

I'm doing great on exercise. What goes into my mouth is what I struggle with. I think this may be helpful…. Worth a try! Today was good… 5 points for Judy!

    Excellent! I love the 5-point system. Eating slowly and mindfully is a toughie for me as well.

    I was thinking about getting the same book by him. Is it easy read? How did you like the book? Love your point system. Way to go Judy! Keep on keeping on! emoticon
