My Gut Felt Like a Stuffed Sausage

I’ve studied at least twenty eating plans, and I’ve finally decided to follow . . . them all. I figure as long as I choose a balanced menu and don’t overeat, what’s the problem? Who cares that some of the plans are total opposites in principle? I’m simply tired of being indecisive.

After eating volumes of Christmas junk that tasted delicious, I felt like a stuffed sausage. Worse, I felt like a sausage stuffed with hardened chocolate. But in ONE DAY I turned that feeling around. On New Year’s Day, I ate no chocolate, none! I drank lots of fluids and ate small portions of vegetable soups, salads, half sandwiches, and fruit juices, even whole grain crackers and cream cheese, but I spaced these meals out every 2-3 hours (forcing myself to stop grazing constantly on junk), and my gut thanked me! I am encouraged that the body responded quickly.

I'm a fifty-something woman, with half a dozen grown children, who plans to prove once and for all (I hope) that I can get healthy in every way by eating real food, exercising gently, finding a satisfying purpose, and reducing stress, without starving or torturing myself. I'll keep you posted.
