I'm gonna be real and say that I had a little cheat day today...
I stepped on the scale and saw that I've lost 45lbs, so I had some chocolate
I'm going to step up my water intake, concentrate on juicing more, and go back to salmon.....I already don't eat bread, pasta, potatoes, or extremely sweet fruit....so I'll do better tomorrow *hits hand*
Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.
High-Fat Dairy: Cheese, butter, heavy cream, yogurt.
Fats and Oils:Coconut oil, butter, lard, olive oil and cod fish liver oil.
If you need to lose weight, be careful with the cheese and nuts because they’re easy to overeat on. Don’t eat more than one piece of fruit per day.
If you’re healthy, active and don’t need to lose weight then you can afford to eat a bit more carbs.
Tubers: Potatoes, sweet potatoes and some others.
Non-gluten grains: Rice, oats, quinoa and many others.
Legumes: Lentils, black beans, pinto beans, etc. (If you can tolerate them).
You can have these in moderation if you want:
Dark Chocolate: Choose organic brands with 70% cocoa or higher.
Wine: Choose dry wines with no added sugar or carbs.
Dark chocolate is high in antioxidants and may provide health benefits if you eat it in moderation. However, be aware that both dark chocolate and alcohol will hinder your progress if you eat/drink too much.
I'll be starting today and I'm starting with a bowl of scrambled eggs and a glass of water. :D
You know, doing research into this, it is not as hard as I thought it would be. I've always turned my head up at diets because I like food and feel I can be healthy without food restrictions that aren't caloric.
If I go into ketosis and my breath stinks, at least I'll be losing the weight. Since high school, I've plateaued in my weight range of 170 to 180 (highest being 185.)
This seems like a lot yet on me it doesn't appear that way because I'm quite tall. I do like my body, but I'd like to slim down some. I don't have a specific goal weight but a goal range and that is from 160 to 140.
To aid in my journey, I am taking Raspberry Ketones and Garcinia Cambogia. I'm using the ones from NatureWise- they're a fantastic brand!
