Diet?

I have been struggling with this new diet.  It’s a lot more complicated than Weight Watchers and a lot stranger then anything I’ve ever tried before.  It’s called The Zone Diet.

It is not really a diet per say.  It is more of a lifetime eating change.  A change that for a number of reasons I am not ready to totally commit to.   To begin with, I have a hard time following any one thing blindly.  Nothing else is as good, ignore all other things, and you must follow this exactly, sends up red flags immediately .   It makes me feel like a sheep being led to slaughter or a cult or something.  Imagine the scandal being part of a diet cult!   Not for me. So when it say pepperoni is as a protein (a bad choice, but a protein) and high fiber low-fat legumes should be kept to a minimum the whole think loses its appeal.

To give it some positive points, I am feeling better.  Less blah less bulky. No Bulkies on this plan.  I have only lost a couple of pounds in the last couple weeks, but I feel lighter.  My pants are not cutting off the circulation to my legs and I don’t feel like I am dragging another person around behind me. The reason is probably because I am eating less and making better choices.

A weeks worth of oatmeal

Will it become a new eating lifestyle for me?  Don’t think so.  Give up my coffee, the spiritual experience of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, or an occasional tango with the Captain? Not happening. Some things are just not living without.

    I totally agree; I think the word “diet” scares a lot of people. You have to make the extra effort to make a “life” change, not a quick diet – that usually lasts a few days or weeks.
