I totally understand my body and I know what foods I am and am not able to eat. High carb foods now literally hurt me, not only do they bloat me, I hurt for three days after! That has taught me now to steer clear of them, they are just not worth it. I am now able to have high carb foods around me and I do not even want them (I was the biggest bread lover ever born), but now I don't even "pinch" a tiny bit from my husband etc. I love this way of eating and I am still able to choose from sooooo many foods. I eat out regulary and I "party" every weekend, my lifestyle has stayed the same but my food choices have changed. I am finally happy with my body. I am the healhiest, fittest and happiest I have ever been in my life!!! xx
What was the biggest challenge to adopting a carbohydrate-restricted or paleo diet?
Myself!!!! I only lost a lb a week. I wanted to see big losses and that wasn't happening but thankfully I accepted the small losses and after lots of weeks it added up to lots of poinds lost.
What advice (if any) would you give to someone interested in trying a carbohydrate-restricted or paleo diet? Were there any obstacles that you overcame that could help future dieters?
Have only the "right" foods in the home, it is easy to be tempted until you learn to choose the right foods. Thankfully I had no little ones at home and I was able just to have "my type" of foods in the cupboards. Drink lots of water, this is so good for you and helps with weight loss. Also, do not scrimp on foods, eat until you're full and make sure you are getting plenty of fats in.
