Uncharted Territory

I'm doing something I've never done...well, two somethings.  I'm going on a diet and I'm going to post daily on my progress.  Or, lack of progress.  I have never gone on an "organized" diet.  I count calories religiously.  In fact, I bet I could correctly give you the nutritional rundown of any food about 80% of the time.  I'm ridiculous!   Let me say this is not so much a diet but a lifestyle change.  I've done extensive research (and loved it) on this eating plan.  It seems scientifically sound and reasonable.  The worst part will be having to give up caffeine and refined sugars.  Meaning, my love affair with Diet Coke will end Tuesday and Sonic will take quite a financial hit.  If you own Sonic stock sell tomorrow! 

Why am I doing this?  There are many reasons and I'll go into those as I post my progress.   I will say God has been sifting me and part of the sifting has included some food issues I have.  As much as I don't want to, I'm going to share them here.  Why?  Well, because it's what I feel led to do.  So, if anyone is reading keep coming back.  I'll post everyday for the next  29 days for sure.  A big part of me hopes no one is reading because bearing my soul to others is hard for me.  Strangely though, this times it feels almost cathartic. 

Oh, if you are curious about this "diet" or eating plan you should Google it.  The Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy.  I'm certainly not endorsing anything but if you are interested in what I call "cleaning eating" then you might try it.
