Ah don’t worry! I failed my first time as well. I followed this 30 Day Challenge right here. With the exception of allowing myself to cook with grass-fed organic butter and put a little bit of heavy cream in my coffee.
Often times when people start a new diet they’re more focused on the weight loss aspect rather than the diet themselves. So they end up incorporating advice from various areas when they should just be focused on adjusting to a new lifestyle.
Yeah, I think those are some of the more important basics that I kind of learned through trial and error. I’m always here if you have any more questions! :) Definitely give it another shot.
Yes definitely! I’ve always found pasta and bread to be empty calories for me. I could eat a 1200 calorie chicken alfredo or something like that, be stuffed until I could pop, and then get cravings and be hungry again an hour or two later, not to mention I’d get really sleepy after eating that kind of meal. I could eat a sandwich and be hungry an hour later. (IE: peanut butter sammich with 2 slices of whole wheat toast, topped with strawberries)
That’s not normal.
Cutting those foods out has helped me take control of my hunger. Now when I eat a large meal, I am full for hours and hours and hours. I don’t even think about food. And I have lots of energy.
So yeah, it has definitely helped indirectly. :)
