Trying something new!

Monday, May 24, 2010

I went to see my Chiropractor today for a routine adjustment and we started talking about nutrition and losing weight. I told him I lost my weight pretty quickly until now. He told me I should focus on meat, veggies, fruits, seeds, and nuts and cut out grains, pasta, and dairy. Seems a little scary to think about but I am going to try it even if it is for just a few weeks and then slowly reintroduce some of these things into my diet. He even talked about how some people do like a three day fruit fast to flush out their system. We'll see :0) Today I have already had dairy and grains but for the rest of the day I will keep to the diet. Going to start right now with a snack of raw almonds which I love!
Any of you ever did this or eat like this all the time?

Weekend did not go great had Chinese on Fri (made some good choices here though), then went out to eat both Sat and Sun at a pizza buffet (not so good) I did have a big salad before so I didn't completely pig out on pizza!

Going for a long walk in the heat today :0)
Have a good one everyone!

    I eat it all, including the pizza! LOL!!! Seriously, I eat from all of the food groups. No white pasta, rice or bread though, just the brown whole grain stuff. I use the tracker on here to make sure I'm in balance and eating enough. I always have some sort of protein with my carbs and I have to work really hard to get in the healthy fats. I use nuts...almonds and walnuts especially to help with that. I try to vary my calories too. So one day I may eat at the low end of the range and the next couple at the high end and then back down again that way my body doesn't get too comfortable. I also had to increase my calories because of all of the exercise...are you eating enough? Good luck though, would love to hear how it works out for you. emoticon

    Changing things up is always a good idea but I am leery of the fasting. Instead, eat at the low end of your calorie range for one week, then eat at the higher end for a week, alternate to keep your body guessing. It also keeps it from going into starvation mode, which slows down your metabolism.

    Also, within thirty minutes after two of your meals, continue moving for at least twenty minutes. This will keep your metabolism up for a little longer.

    Maybe it is good to change up eating. I read somewhere if you do change the thing you eat (not the same old thing all the time) it can help jump start weight loss! Let us know as you go on this new journey how it goes!! emoticon
