Looking Toward the New Year!

2. Eat Healthy

As we look at the new year we need to focus on a few things if we really want to heal this next year. Get ready to leave the panic and anxiety behind!

What does your plate look like?
Take a look at your dinner or lunch plate today. What's on it? Sugar, Starch, & Chemicals?

I love the taste of treats, but they make me feel miserable. I know that if I eat sugar and starchy carbs I am not worth two cents to anyone. I feel run down and plain yucky. Have you ever thought of your body as a machine? That the food that you put in = what you get out of it.

Personally I like to stick with the lower carb diet. I choose to eat mostly veggies, small amount of protein, a salad at almost every meal & mixed with a little beans and some complex carbs. I try to stick to around 60-80 carbs a day. This plan makes me feel really good. Last year after changing to this diet I lost almost 50 pounds as a result. I wasn't trying to loose the weight I was more focused on my mental state, but it's a great benefit.

On Saturday night my family has a cheat meal, we can have whatever we want for that meal. It really makes eating the junk taste even better! And then I don't seem to want it for the rest of the week, really is a meal to look forward to & it's fun to plan.

I don't know exactly why this plan works so well, but I eat small meals every 2-3 hours. I don't have those sugar and carb comas anymore, however I do seemed more focused, have less congestion, and feel more energetic.

If you are interested in trying low carb, please make sure it is OK with your Dr. I want you healthy! If you have questions feel free to email me or a great low carb site is Livin' La Vida Low-Carb it's run by a great guy named Jimmy Moore & he has learned from personal experience too. His blog is a great read!
