This is the answer I give to most who ask me the question…
On January 18th, I started eating to live instead of eating to lose weight and I can honestly say that it was the best decision I have made.
The details may shock some and most of my friends have given me their defensive rebuttals but I understand why. Everything we know about food in this country has been “spoon fed” to us by a corrupt government and the mis-informed media.
Why do I love the way I eat? Here’s why:
- It’s inexpensive
- I feel fulfilled most of the time
- I forgive myself if I slip (aka eat meat or processed food)
- I have a lot more energy
- I bond with my kid (the vegetarian) through food
- I look great!
The last bullet wasn’t meant to brag. Realistically, I’ve lost a few pounds, but the combination of having more energy, more freedom, and more “glow”, gives me a certain level of confidence no scale ever could.
I’ll keep you posted in future posts; revealing more and more, but first let me make the following food reading recommendations:
