After yesterdays post about just how much weight I'd lost I thought I'd use today to talk about the diet itself that I'm undertaking. You see, taking two days to say something and having some kind of mini storyline is pretty much the only way I can keep this thing going. Well anyway, dieting. It's easy.
No, seriously. It's easy. Too damn easy.
The "diet" that I'm on is the only kind that actually works outside of an all fruit diet, which is just dangerous to your health. As well as the no carb diet that my friend is currently on. That just sounds brutal and I have no idea how she's done it for so long. So anyway, I'm on a calorie controlled diet. This means that I have to track what food I eat and as long as it doesn't go over a certain limit, then it's fine for me to eat. Pizza? Eaten. Pie? Eaten. Chips? (home fries for my friends from the Colonies) Eaten. Why just yesterday I had a BLT and today I plan on having pizza again as I watch the last episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation.
The only time I've ever really felt like I'm missing out is when it comes to some of the higher fat things like pizza and take out. I wanted to have a cheat day and eat actual take out pizza with my Star Trek, but decided I really couldn't do that. But there are low(er) fat versions of just about everything out there if you know where to look.
So the next time someone tells you their diet is tough, laugh as you eat pizza and tell them that you eat less than 1600 calories a day eating pizza. Then watch as they cry.
Seriously though, eat some fruit too. I am eating much much better and eating a lot more fruit and vegetables too. My nutritionist also knows exactly what I eat, as she has access to my food tracking, and didn't tell me off for any of this. If it falls into the parameters, it's acceptable.
