And, I had a lot more energy. I've continued that. And portion control is key, and no processed foods. I do eat a lot of protein. I am a protein junky. I don't eat a lot of complex carbs, but eat a lot of veggies and fruit. And I suffer no guilt drinking whole milk or using butter.
Yes, portion control is
the key. I used to be able to eat an entire large pizza at one sitting, but my meals are no larger than my fist these days. Fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and water are my favorites.
