Epic Fail-EO

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.
