I was ignorant about Nutritional health.
You only know what you know...
There is a element of truth in that statement. I only know what my parents have taught me and what I've heard in the media. I've had hardly any interest in health and nutrition until last year. Ive always been the type of person that puts on weight very easily. When I was 18 years old I weighed stone. I cut out some of the sugar in my diet and I lost over 4 stone. After some years though I had put a stone or more on again, but not it all.
I lost weight by using an App - myfitness.com I think it was. I calculated the calories of everything I ate and drank, and reduced my calories by 500 per day. I was hungry all the time. Sure enough over the space of a few months I lost a stone and I was down to just over 14 stone. A year later though I was back to nearly 15 stone.
I knew I had to do something to stop the weight going on, there was no way that I wanted to be back upto my previous weights, and I felt awful in my clothes.
That's when I started to educate myself
I've friends that are on every kind of diet you can imagine. Atkins, WeightWatchers, Slimmingworld and more. Do all roads lead to Rome? Are they just different methods to getting to the same goal?
So what about you? Like me, have you tried some of the above diets?
I called this blog - Mydiet-no-mydiet because there is so much confusion about diets. Each dieter believes his is the best.
So that's when I started to educate myself and continue to do so. The more I learn, the more i'm happy to say the less I realize I know.
Id like to share some of the things I've learned. From all the diets I've tried, I think I've found the best one for me.
Lets discuss the science and information, my diet - no - my diet.
