Okay maybe that is a bit harsh but I am really getting tired of my own justification on why I can be happy at my current weight. To be honest I am not considered overweight but as I had posted before I have a high percentage of body fat which is very unhealthy. I have joined a gym and although my body fat percent is lower and moving in the right direction each month I am still not getting the results I want as fast as I would like them. After meeting with my trainer after two months he said to meet my goals I MUST change my eating habits. Why would I put all the work into coming three times a week to work out if I was going to sabotage myself with what I shove into my face?
In a nut shell it is a day of high carb foods followed by low carb foods and the real reason I want to sing its praises.....you get a cheat day. Well hello potato chips and Ice cream! Yes once a week you get to enjoy the foods you have refrained from eating all week and it won't sabotage your progress. I am still in the research phase but this diet combined with my workouts will be the ultimate combination to bring me to my goal weight, I just know it. I have ordered the book from the library but plan on starting tomorrow with what I have found on Dr. Oz and other articles from Joefitness . Although they are all a bit different they do share the same basic principles.
