How Do I Change My Diet? Part 2

Updated on June 26, 2011

Low Carb Diet

What am I Allowed to Eat?

Well I am going to tell you what my Doctor suggested I do to lose weight. He has been on me for quite some time to lose weight or become a Diabetic, which I am border line every single time I get my blood work done. So this last time I was up 4lbs from my last visit 6 months ago from 251lbs to you guessed 255lbs, Not good. He asked me what triggered the fast weight gain ? I told him been threw a lot within the last 6 months with my Dad getting sick and spending more time in the Hospital then at home. He passed away on March 1, 2011. Now my Dad has always been on my butt to lose weight or I am going to run into problems, so while he was on his death bed I promised him that I would lose the weight as I was giving him permission to leave us in this world that we would be all right.

So this is what I suggest to do to lose weight especially if you are like me always working and never have any time to go to the local health club to exercise, yes I said exercise is to avoid carbohydrates, yes I said carbohydrates.

Now to start where I left off in How Do I Change My Diet? Part 1, if you haven’t read it then I suggest you go back to

You should eat when you are hungry. Stop when you are full. Remember – you don’t lose weight by restricting calories. You lose weight by restricting carbohydrates.

Final Thought

Remember; there are recommended daily requirements for certain proteins and fats; HOWEVER there are no recommended daily requirements for any carbohydrates!!!
