I have to tell you, I laughed so hard when I read this! I mistakenly thought that your husband counted out the nuts & bagged & hid them, then he only put out one nut
on your desk in the morning... LOL!! Once I re-read it, I understood that he put out one bag
for you. Thank you for the laugh, that made my day!
ClassyLadyWithin- I 2nd that cutting up the veggies & putting them in containers as soon as I got home from the grocery helped me a lot. That way when I wanted a quick snack, they were ready for me.
I was also nervous about having no sugar, because the main reason I had put on my extra weight in the first place was because I was munching on sweets every time I got hungry. I was a sugar addict! I was absolutely shocked that once I started the SB diet, I didn't even crave sugar after the first day. Luckily for me, I have always enjoyed raw veggies, so the transition to them wasn't painful. Once I eliminated the sugar I noticed I had much more energy. When I want something I know is bad for me now, I think about how unhealthy it is for me. My attitude about cooking has completely changed, now I want
healthy foods instead of always filling myself up with 'convenient' junk.
The most amazing thing that has happened is that my 20 year old, size 3 daughter has eaten my new, improved cooking; loves the taste of the healthier foods I've been making; and has begun cooking the SB way, not to lose weight, but because of the health benefits!
Good luck, you can do it!
