New Beginnings: Ideal Protein

My journey is beginning. I have never tried a "diet " like this before. I have also never had long term success before. So, my cardiologist suggested this program and since it is medically supervised and backed by his recommendation, I went to a seminar and signed up that night. I knew it wasn't realistic for me to start until after Thanksgiving because my house would be full of company and way too much temptation. So I began today. I am a little scared of being able to do this because I am a really picky eater, but I realized that I needed some of the decision making taken away from me and thus this "strict"program. On other diets I could easily lie to myself and make excuses and have a sundae instead of a nutritious meal (same amt of calories!) The whole idea of if I cheat, my body knows and will bring me out of ketosis would be sabotage big-time. So...I'm in!

Today was ok except I waited too long to eat dinner and was ravenous...lesson learned! I have a bit of a challenge tomorrow in that I have a stress test scheduled for the morning and I have to fast, but I'll bring my breakfast food to the doctor and eat it as soon as I'm done. After the test I need to plan my meals out for the week so I don't get caught wanting a "quick fix."

I did have an "aha" moment when I was making dinner for hubby and son. After dishing out the parmesan noodles, I was about to lick the spoon, as usual. I stopped myself because one lick CAN hurt my progress!!!
