Jumping on Alton Brown's epiphany trail...

Alton Brown's Guidelines

So what is he eating? According to his fan blog (Thanks for the heads up, Jimmy Moore!) he ate these foods.

Daily
- Fruits
- Whole Grains
- Leafy Greens
- Nuts
- Carrots
- Green Tea
3 times a week
- Oily Fish (He loves sardines!)
- Yogurt
- Broccoli
- Sweet Potato
- Avocado
Once a week
- Red meat
- Pasta
- Dessert
- Alcohol
NEVER!
- Fast Food
- Soda
- Processed meals/frozen dinners
- Canned soup
- “Diet” anything
PLUS: Eat breakfast every day, no exceptions.

These are his guidelines and an idea of what he does and does not do.

Ironically, this is exactly what my ex-trainer, Ralphie told me what I had to eat to succeed over 2 years ago!

It keeps coming back to him.

This week I will have my thyroid rechecked and see if there are problems or something else. I am gaining weight. There is no point in denying the obvious.

I must do something now. I know I can do it. I've done it before.

The good news I am meeting up with a new trainer. She is for training only and does not give out nutrition information. I want to fire up my techniques and get my body going in the right direction once again.

As for nutrition, I'm doing this on my own.
