Tis a Writer's Life for me! - writers on diets.
But I digress. (How did I get on that topic?) Anyway, many of us have no choice but to sit down for our modern day jobs, so how do we keep in shape? I can tell you that this past year I've put on at least 10 pounds, and I'm determined to shed those extra pounds and lean up as much as a middle-aged woman can. Not for vanity's sake (I'm way past that!) but for health's sake. You see, I've come to believe that many of our modern day health problems are related to what we eat and how much exercise we get. In fact, I just got done reading a book my daughter loaned me called: The Beauty Detox Solution, and although the author goes a bit overboard for me, I leaned so much about eating right.
So this is what I'm planning on doing in 2012
Avoid Gluten as much as possible
Don't mix proteins and carbs
Don't mix fruit with any meal
Start every meal with a salad
Take a probiotic and digestive enzyme with each meal
Grow my own sprouts to put in salad and sandwiches (super easy)
Eat a mostly vegetarian diet (turns out many veggies have protein in them!)
Walking fast at least 40 minutes a day or getting on my exercise bike for 30.
How about you? Want to join me?
