Oh happy day.

Thursday, February 02, 2017

On Feb. 1, my wife and I have been on the Ludwig eating plan for one year. I tried on, and got into a pair of jeans that were 4 inches smaller in the waist than when we started. Do wish I have taken body measurements when we started to have a reference. Am also down 31 pounds for the year. We both continue to slowly lose weight. The first thing we did was to get off the deadly whites: white flour, sugar, white potatoes, and white rice. To keep out sugar, and questionable chemicals, we mostly cook from scratch. We are both partly retired, so have time to do the extra cooking. Lots of veggies, and chopping and dicing. Have a garden, and all food grown is organic. Like that a little chocolate is fine as long as it is more than 70 percent cocoa. Have a little bacon, but is uncured. Don't feel I am missing out eating as we do. We will continue to eat on the Ludwig plan, and I don't consider it as a diet. On to year two.

    I never heard of the Ludwig plan. I googled it and it actually sounds a lot like what I was doing before I went full Paleo (which I have realized is too restrictive for me). Good for you and your wife - you have made a LOT of progress!!
