I know exactly what put the weight on and made me feel so lousy. I would say I was almost "addicted" to white bread, white rice, chips, and many many fats using butter, mayo etc. I haven't been a "sweet" eater, but now I understand what I was doing was about the same thing. After a month of eating a very controlled 1400 calorie diabetic diet, I don't crave those Bad things anymore-at least not right now. I realize I am a long ways from making this eating plan a part of the rest of my life-one day at a time, but I am amazed at how much better I feel. All my life, for some dumb reason, I have fought doing "the healthy" thing. Now unfortunately I am paying the price, but I can still make a difference right now. I admire the young people who eat healthy for their futures. I 've never been disicplined, but I am realizing it's just a matter of choice-healthy or unhealthy. Maybe I'm thinking too much. I am just grate for this past month.
