I have been really flip flopping with my lifestyle choices lately and I know that I have been making some irresponsible choices.
I thought that if I went back to my veggie ways I would loose the extra pounds and all would be good. Nope ! I was cheating, I have been eating crap lately – chips, candy and processed garbage. This is not what I have been taught.
I went back through my old notes from my post weight loss surgery journal and realized that in order to effectively loose this weight I need to focus on more protein and definitely less carbs.
Post op it is highly stressed that you eat small amounts of protein and veggies. So what went wrong ?
Complacency happened… I got comfortable, I stopped “dumping syndrome” and found I could eat more garbage.
Slap me back to reality and get me back on track .
Now I am not huge, obese or anywhere close to my prior 284 lbs BUT I do have to get back on track .
I do not diet and always consider this my life , I made this choice and If I want to succeed then I need to follow the rules.
I have my annual appt with my WLS surgeon in July and I need to make sure I am doing this right.
So how am I going to do it ?
First off , I am going to blog the hell out of it and make myself responsible. I have had a few followers inquire about this and I have promised them and myself that I will make myself accountable. My plan is to post daily my meal plan for the day with pictures and step by step recipes.
If my blog needs to shift focus a bit , so be it.
Here is just a sample list of foods I will be eating and buying
Meat: Beef, lamb, pork, chicken and others. Grass-fed is best.
Fish: Salmon, trout, haddock and many others. Wild-caught fish is best.
Eggs: Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs are best.
Vegetables: Spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and many others.
Fruits: Apples, oranges, pears, blueberries, strawberries.
Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.
High-Fat Dairy: Cheese, butter, heavy cream, yogurt.
Fats and Oils: Coconut oil, butter, lard, olive oil and cod fish liver oil.
This is a big change for me to focus on eating meat first , then veggies but it is what my surgeon always said to do.
Small meals , small bites and never drink with your meals !
So if you are interested in following this blog I fully appreciate any feed back and insight from you all . Send me your recipes and tips and I will post them!
So again , sorry for the flip flopping on what the heck is going on in my head , but I gotta do this for me .
So let the meat fest begin and I gotta get to the butcher!
