Banting drop-out

This has been a week of hell. Even though I lost 3 kg on this eating plan, I felt like crap the entire time. So, I decided not to do banting anymore, even though my family is still continuing on with it. I will be trying another health plan, one that includes more fruit and I'll still be avoiding the refined and junk foods. But at least I can eat a potato again. Yay!

I've been doing all kinds of diets since I can remember and what I learned is that you have to choose a plan that you can follow long term. I would never be able to do banting forever. The past week I've been craving all the bad foods, which means the first time I get to cheat, I'll end up eating more than I normally would and would most definitely head for the bad foods. Also, banting played havoc with my moods. My depression reared its ugly head again and I had another episode.

Me and my family have struggled with our weight since forever. But I will be turning 30 next year and I want to shed some weight before then. Or at least look and feel healthier. Not to mention that me and exercise need to get re-acquainted. Did you know I was a dancer? I did ballet and modern dance and when I got to college I stopped and obesity set it. Unbelievable, I know.

Have you ever struggled with your weight? Got any health tips for me, please?
