Here is the deal .Addicts… Read full post »

Seems this has been a summer of starting over most days.I have not been putting the effort into my program that I should be.I can't really figure out why either.I could say that the reason most people don't do something is it just isn't that important to them.If it was they… Read full post »

Since my last post I have had a hard time getting my food under control.But for the past six days it has been nothing but hard core healthy eating.My only downfall has been not enough (sometimes none ) veggies.Thats why I always try to stay stocked with v8.

Here I am again.Day two . Yesterday I didn't have any sugar and consider that a great accomplishment.I had a flour tortilla and thats all the flour I had .
It was a day free of cravings and zero food thoughts.That is a miracle .There is no other explanation for it.Usually… Read full post »

My body has become accostomed to natural fruit sugars.Tha amazing thing to me is that the more fruit I eat, even the faintest thought of sugar is pushed back so far in my mind,that if it is calling to me I can't hear it.
Last night I did a little bit… Read full post »
