How do I start this one?
* Why wouldn’t you do it?
* How could you not do it?
* You need to do it!
I read Thinner This Year. Which is a great book. I was part of the Beta Test Group. Follow the directions in the book for six months, get to your goal weight. Pretty simple.
I couldn’t do it. Good sound nutritional advice. Almost Vegan. Which I get. But I couldn’t do it. Eat red meat once every two weeks? An egg yolk once a week? I thrive on protein. I’ve worked hard to ditch most grain/dairy/legumes (except for cheat meals) from my daily diet. I just don’t want to reintroduce grains and legumes to my diet. The TTY book recommended 50% of my diet be whole grains and legumes. I was a vegetarian for a few years and went back to eating meat because I felt so much better when I ate red meat.
So. Epic FAIL -EO. I want to be Pal-EO.
I want to lose 20 lbs. But this book just didn’t resonate with ME. I suggest reading it when it comes out. It’s good. It will change lives. But I don’t think every diet is for every person. I have no doubt I would have lost weight on the TTY program. For that I feel like big crybaby, loser. But I like the way I feel with this getting there Paleo diet that I strive for.
Next up on my reading list: It Starts with Food. It starts with Paleo for me. This book is written by the Whole 30 couple and I’m pretty excited to dig in.
