The Fat Lightning Diet
I am going to try and eat better. I hope this will give me more energy and make me feel better as I lose a little weight. I am at 193, 5"8 right now. I have scarecrow arms and the big heart attack tummy. Women love to rub it though. Go lower ladies! Go lower!!!
I find it hard to fix my eating habits a little. I will describe what I do and you can all make nasty comments. Should be fun. One thing that can help a little is my waking up early. Lately I force myself up around 5AM. It cuts down on my sleep sometimes because no freakin way I am going to bed at 9PM... but it gives me more time in the morning and allows me to eat some breakfast if I want to. I have been doing this schedule for the entire year.
So yesterdays eating went something like this.
Honey Nut Cheerio's
8pc Sushi Spicy Tuna
After Snack (I was hungry!)
Stouffer's Stuffed Green Peppers
Girl Scout Cookies
So we can take the easy stuff first. I should remove the coke from my body. I might have a diabetic attack when I do this but it will probably help. I should also keep up with the breakfast thing. I can tell it speeds up my metabolism because I get really hungry by lunch time.
I eat a lot of frozen dinners. I am usually really tired when I get home from work and it is hard to get the energy to make a full meal. I was reading Lightnings reccomendations and he said he cut out sugars and salts as well as fat and red meats. Almost everything I eat is salty.
Like I try lean Cuisine from the store and it seems good but is like 550mg salt good for you? It seems not. Lunch is a big problem too.. half the time I have no idea what is in my food. Sushi probably has salt issues with the soy sauce and rice makes you fat and tired right? gahh!
I order these soups sometime at work.. it's Pork Wanton, all kinds of veggies, in a chicken or vegetable broth, with like some hot sauce and garlic.. I think it must have a lot of salt and the pork wanton is probably not healthy.. the other white meat? no? Blah! This is why I HATE trying to adjust my diet. Eating lunch at work is hard and I am not sure how much I would like taking something to work.
Gary is doing a good diet too one of his keys that Lightbulb did not mention in his diet was cutting out processed flours. I have heard about this. So how do you fricken go about doing that? Is wheat bread good but white bread bad? Is this a screw anything honkey colored thing? I dunno.
Perhaps I need to find some guidelines to how much intake I should be having in a reasonable healthy diet and work towards that... More water (which I HATE the taste of) and less coke would be an easy good start also... Peace.
