Protein Problems

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

No wonder I've been craving meat. My protein numbers were not good yesterday, and many of my days are like that day. Or worse in the fat and carbs department. Today was looking to be just like it, so I ate some tuna. It's a little better now, but my fat intake is ridiculous.

I used to be vegetarian, and I got more protein in my diet then than I do now. I was more careful about making sure I ate enough protein, because it can be harder to get. I guess I better pay closer attention. I suspect many of my overwhelming cravings are because I'm not getting good ratios.

This stuff is so much work. Part of the allure of being fat is not having to think about eating. You just do it. Of course, the results suck, but it sure is easier to be lazy. Or is it?

Life is about balance, after all. Sometimes the debt just comes due a little later. Being lazy has caused me all kinds of problems now, and if I don't want to continue to have those problems and more on top of that, I have to pay attention. And get off my lazy, ever-widening behind!

With that, I need to spend some time on the treadmill.

    Yep! It was easier when we didn't have to think about what's in the food we eat. It will all be worth it in the end though! Best wishes to you!
