Going Primal?

As some of you know, I have been following a book called the Carbohydrate Addict's LifeSpan Program for almost five years. I found the three guidelines of the program extremely easy and believe it is the perfect way of eating that I can follow for the rest of my life. I am close to losing 100 lbs. and I am really excited to be wearing a much smaller size than when I began.

Last year my husband bought us a book called Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health. After reading the book, I was ready to drop the wheat immediately. I had a little bit of difficulty at first, only because wheat is hidden in many other foods, but I became aware of the foods that include it and found no problem finding the same or similar foods without it. It has been over a year since I have intentionally consumed any wheat and I have found it is not a desired or necessary part of my diet.

I have been changing my eating habits since beginning my program and have always included the foods I want to eat. The changes have been good for me since, over time, I began to eat whole foods and my choices became healthier. I have been maintaining my weight the last year, even though my scale has been jumping up and down, and have been including my homemade dark chocolate almond bark made with coconut sugar, coconut oil, and special dark chocolate cocoa, on a regular basis. One of the guidelines of my program has me dividing my plate into thirds, I do this mentally, placing the same amount of protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates in each section. From the beginning of my weight loss journey, the most important guideline I felt I needed to follow was to keep my portions balanced, and it always worked.
