Since I've been sidelined from the workouts for a bit, I've turned my focus back to the food. My current discovery and hopeful path to success is a book called "The Sugar Addict's Total Recovery Program". It's a 7-step plan to "detox" from sugar. I've talked before about the fact that my compulsive at times eating of chocolate and sugar is not that of a normal person. She gets it, and has both an explanation and a program to help.
Step 1 is having a very protein-centric breakfast, within an hour of waking up. (Not as easy as it sounds when you are allergic to eggs!) Step 2 is to start a food journal. I've been trying to master these two for almost a week now. Thankfully, she says NOT to try to achieve the steps all at once. Step 3, which I'm about to start fooling with, is apparently one of the tougher, and is called "Three Meals a Day with Protein." It includes limiting food to three meals a day, with protein and a complex carb, and with no snacks between breakfast and lunch.
The 4th step is when you'll think I've gone coo-coo. More on that when the time comes.
