Start Weight:(04 Oct 13) 212.0 lb
Current Weight:(22 Jul 14) 161.0 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: Tulipgirl6's own diet
performance: losing 0.3 lb a week

So I hit the 50 pound milestone! Will my chart ever turn green? I am going for another 10!

I'm going to put my basic plan that I started with down here as a reminder to myself:

Calories: 1250
Carbs: 2-3
Protein: 10
Fruits: 2
Fats: 3
Dairy: 2

This month (July) I am focusing on my nutrition and trying to come up with a new exercise plan!

Veggies: Unlimited.
Nuts: 6 walnut halves, or 8 almonds, or 1/4 avocado = free
2 green teas
2 fiber / flax / chia drinks
8-12 water

If you are looking at my food log - I usually don't track my veggies. So if it says eggs - it's probably a fritatta or a panful of veggies with an egg mixed in . .. . .

I have also cut out milk . . . . I have a gluten intolerance, so I cut out out bread and pasta . . . .

so, what are the ideas on "reprograming" and improving insulin sensitivity; do we have any choice but to go low carb?

So I'm poor....
Thanks for simplifying it for me! I also don't eat much beans and legumes; gotta get rid of my big belly! I thought they are good for diabetes as they reduce insulin spikes???

I also am on a limited budget. Just me one income. I eat lots of beans and legumes, luckily they are amazing!! Lots of ways to cook them from many cuisines. I eat lots of veggies, whole grains. even from whole foods you can stretch complementary proteins of whole grains and beans/legumes to be a good source of complete protein, usually the most expensive part of one's diet. lots of dark green and various colored veggies are great for you. lots of nutrition for not much $$$$.buy what's on sale or marked down. if you have any ethnic stores in the area you might want to see what they have available.

@wholefoodnut : how do you know what proteins complement each other? this is advanced stuff! and what if you don't have "whole" proteins? I think I need to look into this topic more!

So far so good
Today I have to remind myself that I am doing well so far, and I just need to continue! Some days it's harder than others, and old habits creep up on you!
