I’m down 5 pounds! Woot! The slacks I wore today didn’t feel as snug as they did last week. Hooray! This is probably the best motivation possible when you’re changing your diet and hitting the weight loss trail.
You’ve probably noticed that my lunches haven’t been full-on “healthy eating”. I’m not eating just salads and organic foods, “clean” foods only, etc. This is why I love the “Great Taste No Pain” diet. It’s the diet I used two years ago, to combat my acid reflux/GERD. Not only did it take it away, I also lost 15 pounds! The main key to this diet is what types of food you eat together (for instance, the old “meat and potatoes” is one of the worst things to eat together) and to make sure you allow enough time for your stomach to digest food before you drink anything or add more food. It’s that simple! Really! I can be the most undedicated diet follower ever so if I can do this, anyone can.
The only side-effect to this change in my diet that I have noticed is some slight stomach cramping. I can deal with that. I think my system is still trying to acclimate to the lack of caffeine, cookies and general sugary junk food that have given me an energy burst and gotten me through the day.
Give it a try. You can find information on it here: Great Taste No Pain.
