You have to do what works for you. This is what worked for me along with exercising, and if you decide to use it, awesome! I think the major thing is just eating more healthy, watching your grain and sugar intake and the amount of calories we put into our bodies. I now know what I am going to do to get back down to weight after I have another baby! I have been off the actual eating plan for a little over a month and I had two days were I struggled and ate to much because of parties and such and I paid for it, I had major stomach ache and felt awful. I have maintained my weight and have been able to add grains to my meals. I also let my self have something sweet a few times a week, but have started to used mostly honey or agave instead or sugar.
I have learned a lot from eating this healthy way. I know what is good and not so good for my body and that I need to watch what I eat. I have learned how to eat way healthier, and plan on doing that. I have also learned to stop or not snack as much, and also to stop eating after dinner. I have come up with a new plan for myself of how I want to eat, because I don’t want to have to “diet” the rest of my life, I just want to have a healthy eating plan. Every Friday on my blog I will post some ideas of yummy healthy meals, exercises, and also good ways to not feel hungry and get rid of that 9:00 pm food craving so come visit me there!
