The first step is admitting it, right? Steve had some bloodwork done and got the results a few days ago. His triglycerides (sp?) were high so his doctor recommended the south beach diet. Being the amazing wife that I am, I’m joining him–kicking and screaming a bit. We spent a chunk of change on groceries last night. We had almost nothing we needed to make the change to better eating. This morning for breakfast I had eggs with canadian bacon and veggies with a little light mozzarella cheese sprinkled on top and earl grey tea. I felt empty (both pysically and emotionally–just kidding!!) so I had some cottage cheese. The point of this diet is to eat good fats and protien and veggies and to limit carbs. They say you can eat as much as you like, so you should never feel hungry. So far I just can’t get that nice full feeling that pure sugar gives you. McDonald’s cinnamon melt, it may be a while before we see each other again. Anyone have any sage advice?!
