Since getting married a year ago, my husband and I have both gained weight. They say it happens after marriage, but we were just lazy. Lazy with workouts. Lazy with meals. Turns out... laziness = unhealthy. I've gone up a whole pant size in the last year! Realizing that something needed to change, two weeks ago I weighed myself (which I never do). Turns out I'm the heaviest I've ever been. I'm a firm believer that muscle can cause weight gain, but most of my weight is NOT from muscle. I barely work out. I like to call myself a runner... but I WAS a runner... two years ago. Now I run, occasionally. So the scale is not lying about where the weight is coming from. There is no denial here. My husband also gained a few pounds, so we both realized that something had to change. That's when I bought a book. A book full of deliciousness.
It's called 28 Days of Clean Eating: The Healthy Way to Kick Dieting Forever. It has recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, smoothies. You name the meal, they have a recipe for it. Plus they give you tips on how to switch to a more clean lifestyle and WHY making the lifestyle change is good for you.
Two weeks into (mostly) clean eating and my husband and I feel fuller longer. We aren't snacking as much and those crazy cravings for dessert aren't as strong. Many of the recipes that I will be posting on this site will be from the book, because I love it so much.
If you feel like you need a life style change and NOT another diet, you should check the book out, too! It is delish!
Be inspired, my friends!
