Hi 2 weeks in and it is going great, I am over the moon 🙂
Amongst many other nice things!! I am a picky vegetarian, who ate limited vegetables until 1 month ago!!!! (I kid you not) who is now discovering how to eat all over again and that is going great too! The weight loss, mood, self esteem, the view in the mirror and eating, tasty healthy tasty food is working. However, It is going to get very expensive as my wardrobe ALREADY needs changing !!!!
I am counting calories and balances myself (inc taking the advice from the blogs re: carbs and the WHOOSH effect etc, re: what can hinder my progress. I putting together some great balanced meals, however, now I am exploring and using my imagination to see what I can come up with, the calories are not so easy to count.
My question is: If I simply put together a salad or a bean burger of choice etc, and count the total calories and then divide it into portions of so many calories each portion, will this work. OR is the science a little more complicated than that.
Thank you and especially for the advice re: whoosh effect, as I lost nothing on one day and put on a 1b on another day and was irate as, I kid you not, I am like the calorie police! and had been very active. It all caught up on me and I aced it the next day after my quiet rant by losing 2lb! across 1 day (not). LOL. I am steadily losing 1b a day, holy wow!
I will be forever in debt to Michael (my new best friend)! as I now throw over my shoulder all the ridiculous nonsense advice I have ever read or been given, re getting fit, eating well and getting rid of the weight. There is no one more surprised than me, to find that not only can I survive on 800 calories, but I can sit and relish the feeling of real food without hardly a pang.
Thank you Michael and all you amazing people, happy Thursday from New Zealand 🙂
