As I continue my research in preparation for my new lifestyle (launch date: Monday!), I'm finding more and more articles that confirm what I've suspected-- a fad diet isn't going to cut it. I'm going to have to make real lifestyle changes to both my diet and my exercise routine. I found these articles especially helpful:
International Herald Tribune
The Eastern Progress Online
So I'm making my grocery list, including plenty of fruits and veggies and whole grains and making sure I have breakfast before I go!
If anyone has any tasty, healthy recipes or product recommendations, feel free to share. As I become more knowledgeable, I'll do the same.
