Some days I feel like such a fraud because I am not able to follow all of my "rules" about food and I keep changing my food rules in an attempt to get to my goal weight. I find I am so tempted with "bad" foods and tire of the "good" foods or I tire of all the preparation time involved. I try to follow all the different tips and tricks but the reality has been that I have maintained a steady 20 - 30 pounds over my goal weight.
I have tried so many different "diets" and food plans and am still looking for the results. I have gone from Vegan to Paleo and everything in between! I had a time several years ago when I lost 40 pounds and felt amazing but then after a little bit of time my food changed and slowly the weight crept back on. So now here I am always feeling challenged and always judging everything I eat and even more how much I am eating. I can't seem to figure out the best plan and now I am at the point where the weight won't come off even with very mindful healthy eating.
So now I have purchased Sara Gottfried's book, The Hormone Reset Diet which is about resetting 7 hormones in the body. I am hoping will help me get my body healthier and that the weight will begin to fall away. We will see what happens - I'll let you know and I would love to hear from you as well. Do you have these similar challenges?
