When I lost most of my weight is was with a low-calorie diet. I had to track everything I ate. I’ve had more problems doing that now with much more going on in my life. I’m busier, and more likely to “grab and go” rather than think, eat, and write it down. This has led to some weight gain.
I did some reading and found the paleodiet. It certainly sounds good. It would mean I don’t need to track calories. I can eat a lot of good food. This diet may actually work, but apparently not for me.
My problem is carb-cravings. I’ll do well for a few days then I’ll binge on high-carb food. One of the main points of the paleodiet is to avoid the carbs. I seem to have issues doing so.
So now I’m faced with a new decision. Do I:
- Work harder on the paleodiet, and control my eating?
- Start tracking everything I eat and control my eating?
Either way, it appears I need more self control. Self control isn’t fun. Why can’t it be easy?
Oh, it isn’t about exercise. I get a lot of exercise these days. I’m a bit bummed out that I’m not riding my bike to work tomorrow, but I really don’t want to get stuck there with snow on the ground. My wife is out of town until at least the end of March, so she can’t pick me up if weather gets bad.
