After re-reading my previous post about the year in review, I realize the problem.
I started a true lifestyle change back in 2007. The changes were drastic, but effective. I lost weight, and got much more fit. The changes centered around eating sensibly and getting exercise.
I realize that although I’m still much healthier and fit than I was when I started, my eating habits have slipped gradually back to horrible. Overall, I’m still doing well due to the exercise I get but I need another lifestyle change.
I’m considering a six-day diet. A strict low-carb diet six days per week, then eat what I want on the seventh. This will allow me to lose weight, yet still go out with Kristy for dinner, or have a beer or three.
The low-carb, high-fat, high-protein diet is a bit controversial, but will be easier to fit-in with Kristy’s cooking habits. It’s also similar to what I was eating during my best period of weight loss.
I still need to track everything I eat, and weigh regularly. Both of those things mostly disappeared for the month of December.
