I don’t sit down and eat an entire bag of chips, down a gallon of ice cream or polish off a pan of brownies; but I DO love all of those things, and before I decided to make this lifestyle change, I just simply wouldn’t restrict myself from any of those foods. It’s as straightforward as that.
I’ve been getting GOBS of emails from everyone begging me to post about my eating plan, and before I start listing or recommending anything, there’s something that I have to tell you that you may or may not know already.
BEING ON A DIET
(aka: restricting a lot of the yummy foods you like and eating much less)
I had my hormones tested, got my thyroid checked out, found out I had a very minor pituitary gland issue and was even diagnosed with ADD; one of the BIGGEST reasons I overate. My mind and body were always trying to stay busy and active (no shocker, because I’ve always got a trillion things going), but since I wasn’t releasing off the specific chemical in my brain, naturally, that made me feel good and relieve stress, I would do it with food; which sent it off for me. It sounds crazy, but that’s why I have such an emotional connection and even borderline addiction to how food makes me feel.
