Lucille talks about her first big win with Eat to Live: (Send us your accomplishments too)
Well, my first big win on Eat to Live (ETL) is that I am LOSING weight. I had gone on a vegetarian diet so many times and always gained weight. So I said....well, I guess that's not for me. But I'm very, very pleased with the results so far - about 4 pounds in less than 2 weeks.
I notice I fall asleep faster and wake more rested. I don't crave anything. I may look in the freezer at some ice cream but then I say...nah. Today I saw a huge chocolate cake at work and I just shrugged. I won't say it wasn't tempting but the awareness of how I would FEEL in about 20 minutes stopped me cold. But also, I really didn't crave it. I can't tell you how much cake and desserts I used to eat at gatherings. I'd keep going back to stuff myself. If someone talked to me, I couldn't wait to get rid of them so I could go back to the dessert table.
I eat less at meals, too. I used to feel like a pig because I couldn't stop eating. Now I know it's because I wasn't being nourished.
Before ETL, it had gotten excruciating to walk up and down the stairs - my knees hurt bad. Now it's about 60% better. It's only been 2 weeks.
My husband is coming around, too. He stopped making French fries and he eats salad every night.
I can honestly say I've found it. It's not difficult at all to eat like this. And I love preparing the food. I made the anti-cancer soup - outrageous! I never dreamed dishes with no oil could taste that good.
I have a long way to go but I know I'll get there.
