I love this time of year - "Guy Foods"
And Fatty Treats that are otherwise hard to find.
See, I never sat down and said .... "GOSH - I am sure a Fattie!
OMG Becky - look at my butt - it's so OUT THERE!
Hmm... I think I'll try Atkins! I've GOT to try something..."
I kind of fell into the whole LoCarb thing...
And I never ever get tired of telling the story.
In 4 years, a person could earn a college degree. But
I keep flunking out, and making the same Sophomoric mistakes.
Now I really GET what Atkins is - and what it is not.
This is the butter and coconut oil I take with me to munch on at work!
It has taken me every bit of 3.5 years to wrap my brains around
the concept of eating fats - and ketogenic diets...
It goes against everything we are taught....
Which SHOULD have been my first clue - to trust it!
Atkins is not a LoCarb diet; it is a High Fat diet.
Lots and lots of Saturated Fats.
Turns out that even the experts are now saying
That Sat Fats are not the evil we once thought they were.
And cheating on Atkins is a very slippery slope -
A simple glass (or two) of wine at night - can, and does
REALLY show up!
The good Doctor himself wrote that the only reason
his diet ever fails is because of cheating - or alcohol!
Am I really able to "give up" all kinds of sweet "treats" ...
And let them lose their appeal once and for all?
Maybe I had better leave the candy and cookies
For the kids, and "grow up" to a better diet for me!
So this Way Of Eating is becoming a real commitment to me.
Not just a bunch of words in a blog.
Not just a way to drop a few pounds whenever I need to.
I am a slow learner - better later than ever, I guess!
The unexamined diet is not worth eating!
Can you see the birds flying south for the winter?
Too cold here in Dallas!
Happy Holidays continue!
