Sorry for all the questions this morning. I was just thinking about this after I posted the workout plan question. I know some of you guys are using Weight Watchers and I'm not sure what everyone is using. What plan (even if it's your own plan) are you using and how did you decide on it?
I am loosely following the diabetic diet plan I had when I was pregnant. I eat a little bit more carbs than I think I should. I try to eat 3 meals and 3 snacks. I have tried to increase how much protein I am eating too. I don't have a strict plan. I just try to eat fruits and veggies every day and space out my meals so I am eating something every 2 to 3 hours. This way I don't get hungry and I think it's better for you. The only thing I'd like to work on is my carbs. I don't eat a lot of sugary carbs but I think I eat too many starchy type things. I'd like to be eating more veggies and less breads/pastas/rice etc.
I decided to go with the diabetic plan because it really helped me to control my weight gain when I was pregnant. The last 4 times I was pregnant I gained 50 or more lbs. I only gained 35 with Shawn and I think the diabetic diet made all the difference. I also picked this because I am at risk for diabetes because I have a strong family history so I try to control my diet as much as I can now.
Are you trying to lose weight or get in shape? Stop by the Mommy Fitness board and say hello.
I've read lots of nutrition books, everything from pro-vegan to pro-Atkins to Nourishing Traditions and just about all in between. I think all of them miss the mark in some ways, and are helpful in others. I guess Michael Pollan's Food Rules is the one I agree with most.
