If you do what you've always done...

...you'll get what you've always gotten!
So with this eating plan I am doing pretty much the opposite to what I've ever done before. I've done so many diets - low cal, low carb, low fat, high fat, high protein, vegan, raw vegan, vegetarian, macrobiotic - honestly I have driven myself mental trying to figure out how and what and when to eat!
In the past year I have gained 30 pounds - and the way I have done that is basically I've been on the Sumo diet (so I recently read to my shock!) - no breakfast, lots of sweet milky tea, huge lunch with lots of bread, maybe some crisps for a snack, then a huge dinner often laden with pasta potatoes or rice - often washed down with plenty of wine! I have also done hardly any exercise in this time. I do believe that the medication I am on made the weight gain worse, but I am slowly weaning myself off these which I hope will help with weight loss and give me a bit more energy.
OK - so - here's the plan... I quit drinking a few weeks ago and I plan to keep that going. I am eating breakfast, lunch and dinner with 2 snacks. No sugar, no soy, no bread, no pasta, only small portions of potatoes and rice (measured). Plenty of protein every time I eat, not too much fat, smaller portions but eating more often. I have always loved fruit and veggies so I will keep that up.
Let's hope doing something completely different will give me completely different results!
