7/9/13 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Thursday

Questions people usually ask me are:  Aren't you still hungry?  How did you feel when you first changed your eating habits? 


            I am rarely ever still hungry on this diet.  Eating so many small meals a day helps my metabolism keep working and maintains my energy level.  Vegetables are always a good choice if there's a day when you're still hungry.  If you really have a hard time stomaching vegetables munch on a handful of Fiber One or bran cereal.  At least since it is a lot of fiber your body will not store it as fat.  Although beware!  you may have to go to the bathroom a lot!  My husband tries to model my diet for his own health reasons but he usually wants to slip in a Fiber One bar or Fiber One flavored cereal such as, Caramel Crunch.  Now those are NOT good options to snack on if you get extra hungry because they are high in calories and sugar.  Don't let the words high fiber or low-fat fool you on labels.  Typically they are always high in sugar.  Trust me, since lowering my sugar intake I credit that as being a large reason why I have been successful with losing the weight.  I make sure to eat sugar-free gum and even my cold medicines - I just had no idea how much sugar they insert into those liquids and throat losangers!


            I will warn you:  the first two weeks could be pretty rough.  You may have headaches and actually be very hungry.  These smaller portions are a different way of living than your stomach will be used to.  As you approach the third week you should start to feel more energy and accustomed to the diet. 


            Something to ask yourself is: what kind of difficulties might I encounter as I am trying to reach my goal weight? Until tomorrow...
