Well the weekend went well. Friday Night I went and joined a gym, and then went grocery shopping.
I decided to join a gym, mainly to get into the habit of going before the weather turns cold, which is when I will need it most. So I am going to try to get there in the meantime three times a week to do cardio, once the winter hits, I want to start some strength training also.
Also a the store on Friday night I picked up the book The Abs Diet. My younger brother who has done this diet and lost weight has been telling me I need to read it, even if I am not going to follow the diet, just read it, because it has a lot of good info about nutritional info in it. And boy does it. I really think everyone should read this book. It's more about eating clean that it is anything else.
all I have to say after reading it, is hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup are like the devil reincarnated, and it's in absolutely everything. I go to my cupboard after reading the book, and I am thinking "I've been eating great for the past 8.5 months I'm SURE there isn't many foods I'm eating that had them in it!". Oh my was I wrong. Everything has it in it. Crazy. Read it, it's worth the read.
So that being said, I got to thinking about health, and how healthy what I'm eating really is. So I started using SparkPeople to track my food and calories. HOLY CARBS! I'm eating way way more carbs than I should, and not nearly enough fat. Protein I should be eating more, but I'm within the range spark people gives me.
So my question to you guys is, how do I cut my carbs, but increase my fat?
Well girls (and guys, I might have a few of those!), I hope you guys had a splendid weekend, and a happy monday!
