Day 69: The Diet

The nice thing about having 12 weeks to lose 10-20 pounds is that I am not on any ridiculously strict diet. Recognize the diet in the photo? Forget that! For me, no major food groups are restricted. I eat high protein and go easy on the bread but carbs are not off limits. I do try to eat them more in the morning and get most from fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. I eat a lot of black beans, pinto beans, bananas and almonds. Like most diets I stay away from real junky food like sweets and anything deep fried. But a free day once a week means even that stuff is not totally off limits. Interestingly, this far into the challenge that stuff doesn’t sound as good as it used to.
