…Be Green With Amy!
How do I consume more food now than I ever did when I was overweight?
In 2012, I was 40 pounds overweight. My annual blood tests confirmed that I was genetically headed towards Type II Diabetes and high cholesterol. Heart Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis ran in the family.
My husband was 100 pounds overweight and on 3 prescription medications for hypertension and high cholesterol.
Each year, the pounds kept creeping on both of us.
I thought I was eating a relatively healthy diet!
I exercised daily, used olive oil, took the skin off my chicken, ate egg whites, made turkey burgers, rarely ate fried food, and asked for my salad dressing on the side.
I tried really hard not to over eat, and felt guilty when I did.
But still the pounds kept creeping on….
After much reading, I learned that I was not eating a healthy diet, and was amazed by how much I truly didn’t know about nutrition!
Moreover, how processed foods, salt, oil, sugar and animal products that we ingest, not our genes, greatly determines our health destiny!
To make a change, I learned as much as I could about changing to a healthy lifestyle. It was difficult and not very tasty (at first).
