Day one is out of the way. I am feeling very good and optimistic about the zero carb diet. It is way too early to really have any set thoughts. I can say that I totally flopped at the exercise yesterday. My goal was 30 minuets, I struggled to do 10 minuets. I know that exercise is not necessary on this diet, but I want to condition my muscle and bones to a healthier state.
So far I don't feel any different. I am not having any cravings at the moment or any physical discomforts. I guess the big thing for me is the morning fast with black coffee. I love coffee so that is not a big deal. I really don't plan to eat out during this time, but since I need to lose up to 60 lbs that may change. I am afraid that I may lose control once at the restaurant. I have control for the most part at work and total control at home since I live by myself. That is it for now. I an not too excited about the weight loss today. I know it may be water loss among other things. So until a week or two I will feel confident that it is real fat that is gone. Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone.
One more thing, I almost feel funny not adding a picture at the bottom of my post like Denis and Dave. Do you think I should follow that tradition?
