I too believe in the benefits of MB but i am not completely MB either.
my excuse is that i love food!! All kinds of foods
(Jeez, i apologize if i sound foolish by saying this).
When i first read "Confessions, i was so "gung ho" about changing my eating habits that I incorporated it with my Weight Watchers routine, i have done that and till this day I still do. I have tried a few of the foods that were mentioned and liked them..Leeks have become a favorite with me as well as dandelions (they grow like weeds upstate!!!)
i did manage to cut down on meats and dairy and i eat lots of beans as well.(i know i have mentioned this before, but that book changed my life.)
I have thought about going MB but i am just not ready. This is selfish of me but i am not ready to give up the foods i enjoy--Dont get me wrong, i am not eating ice cream,cookies,chocolates bread so on.. every day, but every once in a while i do "cheat" or what i would like to call "reward" myself.. I know that once i eat something out of the ordinary my stomach feels it right away. i have also controlled my eating habits which is something i never thougt i was able to do.
I have been battling my weight for years and now i am actually trimming down i still have 40 more lbs to lose, but now i am battling exercise,it is my main focus as well as eating right. i would like to attempt MB sometime in my life.. but i need to take one step at a time. I do love to cook!!! whenever i get a chance which is only on the weekends, In the summer i cook alot of veges cause they come from our garden, big huge garden full of peppers, tomatoes, escarole,dandelions,onions,garlic,basil so on...
