My Goals:
You have to eat to live, but I don't believe that food should be mere sustenance. Food should be a pleasure to eat as well as healthful. I love to travel, and I don't buy designer bags or clothes - I enjoy regional cuisine and adventure! I want to be able to enjoy food, explore the countryside and be healthy doing it.

My Program:
Low grain/starch and exercise.

- Home cooked meals. One dining out option per week.
- 90g protein minimum
- 80g carbs maximum
- Clean eating - high quality vegetables, protein and fruits
- Minimal processed foods
- Low to no sugars
- Low glycemic fruits
- Occasional breads or starches, if desired.
- Sweet treat rarely.
- One glass of wine, if desired
- 30mins light to moderate exercise 4x per week
- 2 hours extended exercise on weekend (hiking, biking, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, etc)

Personal Information:
From Colorado originally. I lived 6 wonderful years in Seattle. I am currently located in Savannah, GA.

Other Information:
I'm a software engineer.

    LOL. I feel that way about my thighs. They have been the last thing that have seemed to shrink in this journey and the thing I couldn't wait to shrink!

    Absolutely love your blogs ! I read over many of them this AM and will get back to them this evening. I love the way you experiment and try to figure out what works for you. You are very scientific and mathematical with all of it. Would you mind if I referred to you in a blog ?
    I was all about experimenting for a while, but my style is more psychological /intuitive (or something like that anyway).

    Thanks for the comment and encouragement on my blog! emoticon

    I actually found my dietician at a bariatric clinic. I really like her.

    Thanks for commenting! Natural deodorant isn't supposed to stop sweating, it's natural to sweat. It is supposed to stop smelling though. The one that gave me a rash did work awesome, for over 24 hours with no smell!
