About 30 minutes after we finished talking, I had pizza for lunch, and dutifully opened the MFP application on my iPad. After recording the slice of pizza and the salad I saw a question posted by a friend on MFP - "How many of you went over on your sugars regularly and still lost weight? Is this negotiable at all?" It is the kind of question I used to struggle with. Maybe you do, also. Here's my advice, for what it's worth. It's not just about the sugars, or the sodium or the protein. You have to balance with your daily exercise. Calories in. Calories out. Eat Right. Exercise. So, before you stress too much, do some reading. Here's a good blog post on nutrition. I have not tried the recipe, but I found the information to be very good.
I Want To Lose Weight Fast: Nutritionally Smart: Seven Simple Ways to Eat Healthier (with Strawberry Orange Sorbet recipe)
Another good resource is Tim Ferris' book, "The Four Hour Body." Get a copy and at least read the first 4 chapters. You can get the hardback, paperback, audio, or eBook by clicking over to buy.com.
OH, and if you have some old photos or scrapbooks from times when we might have been together in the same place at the same time, please send them to me privately by clicking this email link for firstname.lastname@example.org. Please! With sugar on it?. Trust me - they won't end up here unless you give me permission.
Be sure to get some breakfast, and take Clif Bar with you.
Eat Right. Exercise. Get plenty of rest.
