I have decided not to calorie count on this diet or follow a strict kind of diet. I have tried these diets before and they work when I am on the diet, but when I stop, I put the weight back on. Logically I know I need to educate my mind into what I should and should not eat, but I like the food I eat. I like the foods I cook. I don’t think I eat to badly but I do eat to much and don’t know when to stop.
