We speak of yesterday to make amends today. We speak of tomorrow to plan today. Today is what we have and the only template to work with.

Yesterday was not bad at all but could be better. However, yesterday's errors is the guide for today's plan. I have been trying to do low carbs for a while but I desire to just allow it to flow naturally into my lifestyle without forcing it or starting with a mindset of punishment as most diet seems to me. So I saw a plan called 1:1 eating plan i.e. I get to have a low carb day and another day of free pass, free pass but with some check on processed foods.

Today is my low carb day and I am going to make it as exciting as I can too. I hate boring meals.

Today is another day to make things right. I am also looking to having a walk during lunch today as the weather looks good today. I really want those small changes.

Have a great day

    Thanks Ramona for the advice. I do better when I reduce my attention on some things and that's why I just want a gradual process into this. Thanks for the tips

    Desire is always the first step, and you have a good attitude. Baby-stepping into low-carb is wise:

    #1. Eliminate processed foods and focus on fresh, whole foods.
    #2. Eliminate all added, processed sugars.
    #3. Eliminate 'white' foods: breads, pastas, rice, potatoes
    #4. Eliminate starchy vegetables (potatoes, squash, plantains, yams) and reduce fruit consumption

    Every time you eliminate something it's important to increase the good fats in your diet: add in more avocado, fatty fish, butter, full fat cream, saute veggies in oil/butter/meat drippings, EGGS. Also make sure that you are not over-eating protein to compensate for the drop in carbs. Instead, include more fat if you're hungry... and if you are hungry EAT... just make sure it's not carbs.

    I don't find eating low carb at all boring... I now have even more variety in my diet than I ever had, and I love finding creative ways to prepare foods I already love. I think FAT is exciting, LOL.
