So, what am I doing in the 1st week of my diet?
I have decided to cut out sugar and carbs. I will get back to complex carbs in the near future, and I will also be eating fruit again. I don’t want to cut any specific food group out of my diet completely, but this week I’m sticking to protein and good veggies only.
Oh, and I had a little bit of yogurt, and a wee bit of cheese with my omelet. And I drink lots of water.
No exercising yet.
I’ll have to weigh in once a week, but don’t know which day I’ll choose. I only started with the diet on Monday, but perhaps I will weigh in on Fridays or Saturdays, as I want to be able to eat one ‘cheat meal’ on some Sundays. To be honest, at the moment I don’t have a need for a cheat meal, but I want to keep my options open.
My first weigh-in results will determine my next plan of action as far as eating goes. If I lose to little in the first week, I will have to start counting calories, or something drastic. This is not going to be a diet, this is ultimately going to be a way of life, therefore I’m hesitant to go overboard and cut out things left and right (for too long). I do understand that I need a kick-start to drastically lose weight at the moment.
And just so you know: I’m NOT cutting my morning coffee! 🙂
