I used to make a resolution every year. My resolutions ranged from working out more, dieting, reading more for fun, and education. Like most people I was successful for a while, but then stumbled and went back to my old ways.
This year I didn’t make a resolution, but want to try to listen more carefully to God’s guidance in what I eat. I need to lower my cholesterol and sugar numbers. I am cutting back on the carbs I eat and keeping a journal with my count for each day. There are many different plans and diets available for any type of way you want to stay healthy. I don’t believe any one plan is meant for everyone. We all have different body types and reactions to the food we eat. Some people can eat a lot and never gain an ounce. We have to figure out what our metabolism is and work with that. We can look at our family and see what traits we have from our parents and grandparents.
Once we have a better handle on what works for our body, then we can work on finding the best type of eating plan we should be on. If you’re like me this can be very frustrating, I have worked at keeping my weight down most of my life. The older I get the harder it is because our metabolism slows down. I work out more and eat less, but still struggle with loosing.
These are some of the different plans you can follow, after talking to your doctor:
You can also check with your doctor for recommendations for you and your health conditions. You should always make sure the plan you want to try is approved by your doctor.
I really want to make it work this time. Where are you in this struggle? Can we work together and help each other? Let me know what you think. Please leave a comment on this blog so others can benefit from your experience.
