Here I am. At my heaviest weight ever: 238 pounds. Today, July 1, I begin my Eat To Live program. Based on Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s best selling book, Eat To Live. A friend recommended the book to me after he read it and lost more than 50 pounds in less than six months, and has kept it off.
It is not a diet book. The tag line says, “The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program For Fast And Sustained Weight Loss.” My friend confirms that Dr. Fuhrman’s program helps folks transition to eating foods rich in nutrients as a high percentage of the calorie count.
I’m still reading the book, but I’ve read enough to get me started doing some of the things I need to do to change my eating habits. I decided to write about my Eat To Live journey to help me remain devoted to my goals and committed to my plan. I’ll be sharing tidbits from the book occasionally I think you might enjoy reading.
Here are my main goals:
- Lose 49 pounds
- Walk or jog at least 30 minutes five days each week
- Walk around Stone Mountain (five miles) on July 30.
- Walk up Stone Mountain on August 21.
Editor’s Note: I actually started warming up last week. Walking and eating some of the healthy ways from the book. I chose today to kick off the plan because July 1st sounds more romantic than June 22nd, don’t you think?
