Sorry, I am TIRED.
I had a long day that I don't want to discuss...it involved door to door cookie sales, gym time and grocery shopping.
So, I thought I would talk tonight about "Diet" food.
I was grocery shopping.
I think I mentioned once that I used to like to look in skinny people carts to see what they were eating.
Well, now that I am over half way to goal...and feeling skinny in the relative sense...I look in bigger peoples carts to see what they are eating.
It turns out they are eating diet food.
What could I possibly mean?
I mean two boxes of special K. Low fat snack cakes...fake wheat bread....you know the kind..it's brown but doesn't have any grain in it...just molasses.
I see a lot of fake, highly processed and highly chemicalized diet food.
I remember eating stuff like this and feeling proud that I was 'eating healthy'.
all that processed food triggered binging behavior....caused my blood sugar to spike and left me feeling hungry.
I have a feeling it does the same for a lot of people.
I never would have thought of ADDING fat to a salad, or eating nuts.
Or eating eggs....or yogurt...not 'no fat, chemically sweetened' yogurt....but lowfat yogurt with honey and peaches.
Diet for me was what was in the 400 lb women's cart three back in line.
Special K and no fat cheese and white bread with turkey. Limp iceburg lettuce with 'low fat' dressing.
Not a nice vinaigrette.
Lots of veggies...grilled or perhaps an awesome salad with nuts and feta.
Eating the way I eat now...those lean protiens, Good dairy, veggies and fruit...
It makes a huge difference in your blood sugar and your feelings of fullness.
I think there are some huge misconceptions about weight loss out there, and it's too bad.
Half of that crap should have a warning labels.
It gives people erroneous ideas about nutrition.
I am not typing this to judge her...she is doing the best she can. I am p*ssed at the diet industry for promulgating bs and sucking in desperate people.
I ate clean today and kept my calories to 1440....I exercised for 1 hour on Christian.
I didn't do my upper body workout today....I was sooooo tired before I even got on him that I barely made it through my cardio. I'll make it up on Wednesday.
Hope you all are having a great night.
I am going to get some sleep now.
Talk to you all later.
