I watched a documentary lately, Fat Head. It took me a week or so, with taking a few minutes in the morning to watch, getting interrupted by Lars, watching a bit more, interrupted, listening on the way to work, working, then starting it all over again the next day. Anyway, it was great!
Taken from the website http://www.fathead-movie.com:
Comedian (and former health writer) Tom Naughton replies to the blame-McDonald’s crowd by losing weight on a fat-laden fast-food diet while demonstrating that nearly everything we’ve been told about obesity and healthy eating is wrong. Along with some delicious parody of Super Size Me, Naughton serves up plenty of no-bologna facts that will stun most viewers, such as: The obesity “epidemic” has been wildly exaggerated by the CDC. People the government classifies as “overweight” have longer lifespans than people classified as “normal weight.” Having low cholesterol is unhealthy. Lowfat diets can lead to depression and type II diabetes. Saturated fat doesn’t cause heart disease — but sugars, starches and processed vegetable oils do.
So, I wrote a whole post under this and it has disappeared. Wonderful!
Anyway, I had mentioned that next week I will be starting my newest endeavor of watching carbs. I am not going full Adkins on anyone but I will be limiting them a bit more than normal and watching carbs more than anything else for a bit. It really is an experiment sort of. I was on Adkins a long time ago and was on it for about 2 months; I was strict on it as well. It did not work for me. In the entire two months, I lost 10 pounds and that was just in the first two weeks. It was extremely limiting for me. Doing it the way I will be trying is not so limiting. It is just watching them the same way I watch my calories currently.
I am starting this next week because, well, I will say I am not pregnant, and leave it at that. Next week will be a much better time to start. :O)
Damn, I sure liked my deleted post better.
