I read a fantastic book this weekend...no not 50 Shades, but even better...Jackie Warner's This is Why You're Fat. Wow. Amazing information. I am beginning her plan today. Took the blasted measurements. Ugh. Her plan doesn't seem to ridiculous and this is why I know I can do it. She doesn't ban carbs. I have tried that. It's insane. You have to have carbs. I am upping the GOOD carbs and cutting the crap. Her plan let's you eat clean for 5 days then you can have 2 treat meals after that. Yes please! So here is to lower sugar and no crap!! So far today, I have had a low-fat yogurt (which is AGAINST her plan because it's not GREEK, but I already own it and am NOT wasting it), strawberries and granola, with a whole grain English muffin. The first two weeks of The Plan, you don't cut anything out of your diet. You just add in certain foods. It jumpstarts your body. So that is what I am doing. The eating plan includes a cardio/resistance plan as well. Here we go!!
