I am 58, overweight again, and trying to get healthy. I am blogging about weight loss and everyday issues for women. My blog will include ramblings about the daily life of a mother, grandmother, wife and friend. I would love to have you come along for the ride!
Day 8, Wednesday:A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
My piece of advice it to give up wheat and sugar. I know some of you probably don't agree with this. If you have read the book Wheat Belly, you will understand why I advise this. Wheat has been altered so much to be able to fight off disease and to speed the growing process. This allows the producers to make more money. Some of these genetic changes make the wheat harder for your body to handle. So for your health you need to give it up.
Processed sugar is very addictive and does not have any real benefits to your body. Do you really need to consume processed sugar? No!
I have found that giving up wheat and sugar is not as difficult as it sounds. Just eat meats, fruits and vegetables, nuts, eggs, and some dairy. Make everything as fresh as possible and organic if you can.
If you give up wheat and sugar your excess weight will quickly melt off.
I have tried to give up wheat and sugar in the past and have done very well for a long period of time. My weight was where it should be and I felt very good. Then I decided I needed pizza, and I ate something with sugar. That one taste of something with sugar got me craving it again!! My weight shot right back up! This time I intend to stay away from sugar permanently, and wheat most of the time.
