OK, I know this is gonna be a long post but hopefully you'll bear with me. After reading more about the G.I diet or Glucose Index Diet I realized that this is not a diet at all but rather a totally new a easy way to change your eating habits for life. If I were to keep living my life the way I have been I will quickly become a canidate for heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and many more horrible things that I would rather not mention. Well that's not gonna be me.
By eating food that a low in glucose (sugar) thousands of people have been able to loose weight the healthy way. Not by starving themselves but by eating three solid meals and three snacks a day.
So many people think that they are making the right choice by cutting carbs out of there diet when it has been proven that our body and brain need carbs to function properly. All we need to do is learn the difference between GOOD CARBS and BAD CARBS.
This diet makes it so simple by giving you a stoplight guide to which foods will benefit and which will harm.
- GREEN: Foods that are low in glucose (sugar) that you may eat freely.
- YELLOW: Foods that have a slightly higher glucose content that should be used in moderation.
- RED: Foods that have a high glucose and saturated fat content that you should steer clear from.
It even teaches you about portion control and gives hundreds of recipes to make hearty meals so you can never get bored with what you eat.
Well, I've said enough. I have decided to take control of my life and someday soon be able to fit into all those clothes still hanging in my closet from a skinnier day.
I know my blog has been dedicated to my passion for metal smithing but who says you can only have on passion. So I will be posting my progress along with some yummy recipes that I will be cooking up for myself. I know I cant be the only one out there that feels the way I do about myself, so hopefully this blog will reach someone else out there struggling with the same issues.
I will also be posting some new photos of some pretties later tonight... TA TA for now...Erin
