… or in my case, 100 pounds, begins by taking the first step.
So far I have … 1. increased my water intake to 6-8 12 oz glasses per day
2. decreased my caffeine intake to 2 cups of coffee in the morning
3. cut grains from my diet.
What I haven’t done yet : 1. increased my level of exercise
2. Tried any Primal recipes
But at least I am moving in the right direction. 🙂 I think the fact that I am craving those grains is actually a good sign. Even my husband admitted to me this morning that he is craving doughnuts this morning which is unusual for him as he generally doesn’t crave sweets of any kind.
Also caught an interesting vid on YouTube this morning by way of a FB post by Julian Lennon.
Check it out here please? Video. I posted it also on my FB page so if you are one of my FB buddies and you already saw it then just ignore the link , lol. But if you ignored it there *glare* don’t make that mistake twice. It’s a good use of your time, I promise.
And in other news, my daughter Heather gave me a link to the Food Renegade site. There is a boat load of info there folks!!! Not as much as Mark’s Daily Apple, mind you, but still. I could dive in here and not resurface for days, lol. One page I found helpful since I am a ‘newbie’ to the idea of eating food that is as close to it’s natural or raw state as possible is the one entitled Newbie Tips
That’s all I’ve got for now gang. I’m still a bit over saturated with the info. Trying to process what I’ve been reading and adjusting my mindset to be more proactive about a lot of things in my life, not just the food. 🙂
