So I bought the book The Daniel Plan, and have been reading on it. I think it's a great book and highly recommend it to everyone. It focuses on more than just food, it covers faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends. Just since changing my way of looking at things and really trying, I have lost 5 lbs since Sat, I have more energy, minus the fact I am sick I am still working out some. God is so important in my that I am really looking at my life as a whole, what my past mistakes were with dieting. I wasn't going by it the right way, now my focus is on the 5 F's, well I am a little short on friends, but the ones I have will do. THe only sugar I am really getting is the 2g in my breakfast Atkins shake, and the 1 or 2 vegan chocolate ship cookies I made. I am cleaning house and truthfully the vegan chocolate chips are way to expensive to throw away so I made a batch of cookies. I have enough to make 1 more batch, which I will do on Easter, then they will be gone and I will buy no more of them. I eat a spinach salad everyday, i put mini red, yellow,a nd orange bell peppers on them, sunflower seeds, hearts something (got them from Whole Foods), and 1 or 2 boiled eggs. I do put a little ranch on it to help with taste, something I can't give up. I am eating more salmon that I season myself, which turns out good. Whole wheats, I still wont eat bread though. I am trying to cut out carbs in general, but I do like having rice with my salmon, not to much of it.
I do have the lapband, and hopefully I will be getting it filled to the maximum, and finally have the restriction I am suppose to have. WHen that happens I will only be able to eat 1/4 cup of food per meal, and I will be limited on what I can eat. I just tell myself it will be well worth it in the long run.
