Thanksgiving Eve

Not the way I wanted to start my day. There are days when you just can't seem to get on top of things. I woke up this morning in pain, just overall pain. My back hurts, my legs ache for some reason and I just want to sit around and eat comfort food.

I have for the most part avoid the comfort food and remember what I read yesterday. I picked up the book that was suggested to me from Kim, that was recommend to her from Kerrie and power read it. Meaning I read most of the stuffed that pertained to me.  After reading a ton of 'diet' and 'fitness' book it is easy to get to the stuff that will help you.

The Metabolic Effect diet, in simple terms helps you determine what type of 'burner' you are. They have three plans to choose from based on survey results.  Without spoiling the fun of the survey that helps you determine this, I quickly learned I am a sugar burner. Overall, they suggested a diet full of lean proteins, veggies, some fruits and minimal carbs.  All of which I know, I know that my body is at its best when I can keep my carbs under control. I plan to implement some of the techniques I read on diet and exercise starting the December 1st and will write more about the work outs then. But to get through Thanksgiving without binge eating I am going to try to eat only 5 bites of carbs at each meal. Of course, the means rolls or stuffing? That is the real questions. Potatoes are already out as I know they will be made with lots of dairy and I am trying to be dairy free for the little one.  I can eat a roll, although I am sure it has minimal diary, but stuffing oh so good.

What is your favorite food at Thanksgiving? Do you limit yourself or go all out?

  1. Wow, you got right on it! Really looking forward to your thoughts on the book and what you choose to do with it....
    The workouts and eating make intellectual sense to me and I was definitely ready to buy into this.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
