Just letting you all know eating is still going really good here…I am already seeing the benefits of the eating rules I mentioned yesterday. The only reason I’m being a bit vague about it all (if it seems that way) is I don’t really know if there’s a copyright on the program itself or what it intails??
The ‘nibbles’ are such small bite-sized pieces of food that I’m actually only eating 1/4 of a pepper, 1 stalk of celery, 1/2 cucumber and about 6 baby carrots, but all cut up and they last me throughout the day.
I am eating 3 meals per day, not just the Veggies. There are set meals that you are to choose from, but I haven’t followed that to a ‘T’ as of yet…I’m incorporating a few things at a time while still watching my points with what I intake.
The reason I’m doing this is because of my PCOS. I need to get my PCOS page back up here so that you can be more familiar with what it does to my body. I have been told several times that the only thing that works for women with PCOS to lose weight, is low-carb (which isn’t true in my case because WW works just fine ). I’m not big on the strict low-carbing myself, so following some of these rules and getting more veggies in and a 3 fruits per day rule, and making sure I’m drinking my water (which I normally do easily anyways), things that are tailored to counter-act the results of having PCOS. I have basically cut out the ‘white’ stuff to put it simply.
I’m finding that my body is very sensitive to carbs, and have a horrible bloating feeling from them that is miserably uncomfortable. So, having some carbs is no biggie, it’s certain ones…and it seems to be the ‘white’ stuff…the starchy carbs…the BAD carbs…so that’s basically what’s being incorporated here…I’m sorry if this is all confusing to you…I’m trying to explain it the best I can…I know what needs to be done for my body though, and so far so good. Today I feel refreshed. I don’t feel that ‘weighted down’ feeling from the wrong, heavy foods, that kind of thing. When I find out more about this program, I will give more info…I just don’t want to step on any toes with too many details at this point. There is a link to it in my previous post if you are curious. Alot of the info and tips are free. I just paid like $17.00 to download the Starter Diet that they give you…that’s kinda what I’m not saying too much about, for that reason. I should mention too, that it’s not something for just those with PCOS, it’s for anyone that needs to lose…it’s just a way to raise your metabolism and get things going again. I am still watching my points and everything else as normal
I have your site saved to my favorites and I check up on it every so often. (this is my first attempt at a comment in someone’s journal, lol, I hope I do it right)I was reading today’s post and I was wondering if you have every tried WW’ers Core program? That is what I am doing. It is based on low carbs, but you still get 35 flex points a week. I was a die hard Points counter and when I rejoined WW’ers this past time (April 2005), I decided to give Core a chance. Anyway, I have lost nearly 30 lbs in 2 months. If you ever want to talk about this (or anything else for that matter), feel free to email me. You are a wonderful inspiration. Thanks for making your journal public! (((((BIG HUG))))))
