Got an email the other day asking how the low carb thing was going and realized that its time for an update- four weeks yesterday of no sugar, no wheat, and no flour and the results are: three notches on my belt.
People are starting to comment, even straight guys whom I would not expect to notice. That part I like. For the most part, all is going smoothly. Once off the sugar roller coaster, my energy levels are much more even without the crashes at the end of the day. I even seem to sleep better and wake up more rested. Biggest hassle so far is the way overcrowded Trader Joe's in Santa Monica- it's like a blue light special in purgatory.
How many pounds? Don't know- haven't weighed and don't plan to for another four weeks. Because it's not high school, I'm not cramming for a test and then instantly discarding the information. It's not about a number, its about a healthy sustainable eating plan.
Now off for the morning oatmeal.
