Bread was a large part of my diet until I hit my late teens and early twenties. At this time, I started to workout obsessively with my friends at our local gym. The gym became a social place for us to bond; it became a place to escape our pains, stress, and frustrations. Since our fitness goals during those days were to gain muscle, protein was king. This is all I had known for the first years of my twenties with regards to food intake.
Meeting Dr. Carson
A few months ago, I found out Dr. Carson was doing a 90 Days of Bread project. This sparked an interest, mainly because for the last few years I’ve been attempting to avoid bread due to its high level of carbs. I asked Dr. Carson to give me more information about it and what her goals were with the project. After hearing her out (being the early adopter that I am) I decided to try this out.
90 Days of Bread
I started my own 90 Days of Bread in April. Here are some of my experiences:
- Eating bread has kept me filled throughout the day.
- Prior to this, I was accustomed to eating two large meals per day. This helped me transition to smaller portions throughout the day.
- Which has resulted to less crash and burns, and more energy. I do have to admit, the first few days were tough since I felt heavy and bloated due to the bread,but after a week that feeling went away. My clothes now feel looser; and I have lost 3 pounds to date.
- The biggest challenge to date has not been the eating (I love eating). Its been getting in the habit of recording each days food intake via MyFitnessPal.
