I’ve been on the thinner side my whole life (thanks to stress). I’ve never had to go on a diet or meal plan to lose weight. I just had to practice self-control, and voilà.
It always bugged me when someone would decide to go on a diet, they would receive encouragement from everybody. But if I dared say I wanted to start working out or eat better, I was always given the side eye.
We are all made different. God is a God of variety. And I’m allowed to make healthy choices, even if I’m “thin”.
But the reason why I’m doing this is NOT because I want to loose weight. It’s because I want to see a change in my skin. That’s my focus.
I started my journey to healthy eating on April 10th, 2022. Here’s what I’m aiming for:
• Drink water more often
• No cow milk (I’m allowing myself to eat a “healthier” version of cheese, and a few other milk derivatives).
• Whole wheat bread and pasta
• Using vegan recipes (yes, I’m still going to eat eggs and meat)
• Snacks low in fat and sugar
There’s nothing set in stone. There’s actually a lot of leeway, so technically I can’t call this a diet. It’s more of “watching what you eat” but at the same time ENJOYING what you eat (don’t ask me to eat tofu on its own).
Basically, I’m trying my best to stay away from potato chips.
