An attempt to gain control of my diet and life again.
It is 6 AM, and I am planning the new start that I discussed yesterday. I have really let life and the stress of my summer vacation get ahead of healthy choices. I know this happened to everyone. Do not let this discourage you from returning to the path to health. We can do this.
Yesterday, I weighed 217 pounds yesterday with a body fat of 23%. My total cholesterol is now 212 with an LDL of 140. These are all signs of an unhealthy diet or poor genetics. I think mine is the prior and sugar is the evil minion that is the cause of all that ails me.
My plan is simple: cut out the artificial sweeteners and reduce my sugar and high-fructose corn syrup and see what happens.
