Now, I figure I eat well... Not in the fitness sense, but I have a very discriminating palate, which allows me to say that most of what I put in my mouth is pretty much healthy. I have never followed food trends... I eat based solely on how food tastes. Not only that, but I don't degrade my taste. This means that once I've eaten the golden standard of a food, I can't downgrade my taste to a gross version of the item and eat it.
Anyway, I won't babble anymore on food, but I just wanted you to get my drift on why I'm not very good with diets. No, I have never been on a diet, and thankfully, my weight has been pretty stable and stayed around my current weight for a very long time. Still, I would like to go back to my pre-children weight... I think that's fair given that now I have no excuse to carry these pounds around since I don't have my kids sucking the life out of me. You guys, have no idea how much stress maternity puts on a woman's body. That, and the usual wreck that hormones cause to our bodies and minds. This is no joke, so bear with me and keep that in mind when offering advice.
At the moment, I'm following High T's advice and prepping my body to get into this diet. I am planning to eat less or more... Okay, maybe a little less, but I will not starve myself. I think that would go against everything I believe in terms of having a good life. However, I have almost eliminated most sugars from my diet, except the Splenda I put in my coffee, and the ones that you'd normally find in whole foods. I have also eliminated bread, except the equivalent of a third of a slice. Now, this is awefully hard, and I have to admit that my hormones are going havoc. At first, I was feeling deprived, but after a couple of weeks I feel I'm turning into a glorified bitch...
