Weight History

Start Weight
212.0 lb
Lost so far: 34.0 lb

Current Weight
178.0 lb
Performance: losing 0.7 lb a week

Goal Weight
135.0 lb
Still to go: 43.0 lb
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: 1450
Carbs: 2-3
Protein: 10
Fruits: 2
Fats: 3
Dairy: 2

As of September I am focusing on strength training, and doing cardio 4x / week! I need to re-focus on my nutrition!

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 . . . .

My first day
You can do it! It just needs incredible planning; try to keep low on foods that don't have much value - like processed foods - breads, anything with SUGAR - (you might experience sugar withdrawal). Use healthy natural fats like avocado and nuts olives while you're making this transition. Eat your veggies - the real ones green leafy ones you can tolerate. I keep trying Kale and other things, but I just don't like them. Arugula and good lettuce are my staples. Boring but it works. Try mixing 1/4 teaspoon of pure baking soda in water. This alkalizes your body; you can add a spritz of lemon to it; it tastes reasonably good and helps too! You can also try just pure fiber to help feel full. Psyllium husk, flax seeds, cinnamon, I buy a mix from my x-nutritionist but this helped me like magic when I started. YOU CAN DO IT!
