New to Nutrition
About a month ago, my boss gave me a book "Eat this, not that" and I was amazed that some of the things I was eating that I thought was a "healthy choice" were actually horrible! It inspired me to purchase a diet book by the same author called "The Abs Diet", and this book has changed the way I look at eating.
I was an extremely skinny child and teenager, not thin, skinny. Bones showing skinny. I hated it, and was pretty happy, when in my early 20's I started to gain weight. Unfortunatly for me, it came all in my belly, and in the 20+ years since then, I have had 2 children by c-section, lost and gained and lost and gained etc., but my big problem area has always been my middle.
I have followed the guidelines in "The Abs Diet" for about 3 weeks now, and I have lost 6 pounds. I would like to lose 20 more, but mostly I want to be healthier. I have found I have more energy (and boy, do I need it) and I am sleeping better too. I am NEVER hungry, which I always thought was a major factor in losing weight (if you ain't starvin', you aint losin).
I am really interested in recipes. Healthy ones that my kids will eat too, because I'm not running a cafeteria. Please send me any that you like, and I am happy to share the ones I have found successful in my family.
Next step - exercise.
