Hello everyone, I have to say I really enjoyed Kay's "confession time" and Dawn's "why is that" posts. I love our little blog community, I love hearing how you all are doing in your personal lives your success's and stumbling blocks. Sticking to our low sugar/better carb diet/lifestyle is hard especially when there are so many yummy things to eat.
I believe that diet soda is terrible and even if it helps with weight loss and maintenance everyone should stay away from it. My biggest reason for saying that is that diet soda consumption is linked to depression, which is such a serious thing and should not be taken lightly. Plus all the stuff Jorge says about why we should avoid fake sugar. From a vanity point diet soda can cause hair to thin.
I agree with Kay I hate how the posts are getting farther and farther apart. I wonder if it is because a lot of bloggers feel that if they don't have positive sunshine and roses like things to say about the bfc and how they are doing no one will care. I admit I have felt this way sometimes, as if I need to toe some kinda line to be able to share.
On the meatless front I think it's good to have several healthy bfc meatless meals on hand. I wish Jorge talked more about how to do a vegetarian version of the bfc in the book. He addressed being veg in the Q & A section of the book, but most of the recipes and meal plans rely on meat.
I guess that is all for now, today is our friends wedding and I need to start getting my stuff together to go out of town. Have a wonderful day friends :)
