So the idea is to eat whole fruits and veggies paired with lean protein (think chicken, turkey, fish) and whole grains (brown rice, quinoa) staying away from sugar, white flour and chemicals.
It doesn't sound difficult, does it?
But it definitely has its challenges, mostly because just about everything you can buy in a traditional grocery store is loaded with all the things you're trying to avoid from high fructose corn syrup (more on HFCS is a later post and how much the new commercials make me mad!) to aspartame and preservatives.
So, this means more cooking, but so far its worth it, i've lost 5lbs in the last week, without exercise....and i'm adding that in tomorrow. I'm looking forward to being slimmer, healthier and to having more energy to play with my 3 young boys! Stay tuned to see how it all works out!
