When I started on my lifestyle upgrade one of the first things I had to change was my diet. I lived and worked in New York City and a standard breakfast for me was a bagel and a cup of coffee. Lunch was a ‘junior whopper meal’ from Burger King. Dinner was the only time I had a decent meal with the proper proportion of nutrients.

Unfortunately, breakfast and lunch resulted in me adding unwanted weight in all the wrong places. The job didn’t help either since I was trapped in a cubicle for most of the day.

To fix my diet I started eating a proper breakfast each day to include healthy protein and cut the amount of carbs at each meal.

Growing up in a West Indian home meant eating a lot of starchy foods such as rice, cassava and yams at every meal. Once I eliminated these foods from my diet it took little or no time before I started to lose the excess weight.

I also joined a gym and got serious about working out regularly. It took a while to reach my goal of getting to an ideal weight (those last few pounds are very stubborn) but with perseverance and encouragement from some of the programs I bought into I have much more control of my weight and am healthier and fitter now than when I was in college. I applied the basics of the 3 week diet . . . .  only over a longer period. You can check it out here.

One Response to Want to prevent pre-diabetes and improve your skin tone?

  1. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Many thanks!
