Once again

Posted by on September 26, 2009

Well, as a result of my cardiologist visit, I am back on a diet.¬† Having a teacher almost have a heart attack at school only sealed my commitment.¬† The doctor recommended the South Beach diet — low carbs, no sugar, and high protein.¬† I went to the book store to get a book, since he said it explained why this is supposed to work.¬† I haven’t finished the book yet.¬† My other health problems make me fall asleep when I read too long.¬† But¬† I must say that I started this diet on Wednesday, September 23.¬† From Wednesday to Friday, I’ve lost 4 pounds on this diet.

YAY!!!!

The first two weeks I am supposed to eat no sugar and no sugar added foods, besides the low carbs.¬† So that’s no bread, no pasta, no potatoes, and no fruits or root vegetables (like carrots, turnips, beets)¬† I have not been hungry, and I have not really craved these foods.¬† But it is an inconvenience.¬† I was used to eating cereal for breakfast every day.¬† I didn’t want to get up any earlier than I already am.¬† Now I cannot eat cereal.¬† I’ve replaced my usual breakfast with 2 boiled eggs and some canadian bacon.¬† I can boil eggs for the week ahead, so that helps in the mornings.¬† Lunch has been troublesome.¬† I usually ate a SlimFast bar, but it is too high in carbs.¬† Now I eat some raw broccoli, cauliflower, and raddishes with yogurt, and a couple of slices of deli turkey.¬† But that takes some time to prepare each night.¬†

My next goal will be to restart the exercise.
