Ready For Summer

I’m looking forward to an active and fun summer thanks to the InShapeMD Countdown diet.  The program helped me with my addiction to sweets, fats and carbs.  Instead of craving bread, cookies and butter, I now love the taste of fresh veggies, fruit and whole grains.  Roald and I are even experimenting with a Vegan diet.  I know that I’ll never be 100% Vegan due to my fondness of aged cheese and a good steak, but I’m going to transition from weekly indulgences to quarterly indulgences. 

In addition to watching my diet, I’m also getting weekly B-12 injection at Any Lab Test Now which increases my weekly energy levels.

With all of these changes, Roald and I are now faced with helping our children transition from a high carb diet to a diet based on fruit, vegetables and whole grains.   Of course, we’ve worked with them for years to model a healthy and balanced diet but we, like most parents, yield to the convenience of snacks filled with fat and carbs. So now the challenge is to purge our pantry of high carbs, but we also have to balance with issues of self image and convenience.  Our youngest daughter is already looking at herself in the mirror and commenting on her lean physique.  So how do we balance a healthy diet with a positive self image? This is a complex question…do we comment on the calorie count of product?   Do we tell them to watch the number of ounces of yogurt the next time we visit YogliMogli? 

We’ll keep you posted as we try instilling new habits during the toughest time of the year —- summer vacation.

    I have a real addiction to carbs! I could eat bread, pasta, etc all day long! I will take a look at the InShapeMD program. My blood work did indicate alleviated cholesterol which is no surprise and why I need to change my diet.

    As far as the B12 injections – I just had a physical and there was no indication that I was deficient in B12. Doesn’t there need to be problem in order to request injections?
