Let’s hear some feedback on your “Best 30 Ever“.
Today, is day 26 for me. I have stuck to it and am see great progress. I feel physically better, less stress, on task, more energy, and spiritually strong. However, the components of my discipline still are challenging. Some days I do not want to do anything related to the plan. Eating better has been surprisingly the easiest part for me. I have not had any cravings or bad impulses to eat whats on the ‘no’ list. Getting up earlier is often difficult. Starting to pray has sometimes been difficult, though when I break through it is wonderful.
There are many parts of this that I will continue well after the 30 are complete. I have made so much progress that I don’t want to go back, and the best part is that I really don’t have the same desires anymore. Things that dominated my attention last year, do not seem as important anymore. I know that they will all return as soon as I allow myself to slip back into the old groove.
So, what about you? What day are you on? What has happened in your progress…
Choose good carbs, not no carbs. Whole grains are your best bet.
Don’t be misled by fad diets that make blanket pronouncements on the dangers of carbohydrates. They provide the body with fuel it needs for physical activity and for proper organ function, and they are an important part of a healthy diet. But some kinds of carbohydrates are far better than others.
Read about how to choose healthy carbohydrates.
The best sources of carbohydrates—whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans—promote good health by delivering vitamins, minerals, fiber, and a host of important phytonutrients. Easily digested carbohydrates from white bread, white rice, pastries, sugared sodas, and other highly processed foods may contribute to weight gain, interfere with weight loss, and promote diabetes and heart disease.
