Oh yes... did I tell you that I don't cook? That I don't know HOW to assemble something even reasonable on a plate for a meal? That, in my life, I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner from McDonald's ... in my car? (Notice, I am not sure if breakfast, lunch and dinner should be capitalized....but I know FOR A FACT that McDonald's is)?!!! But it never mattered. I was skinny and thought there was nothing wrong with going to Dunkin' Donuts for a dozen glazed and a large Diet Coke!
I was miserable went back to the source and picked up Katherine Tallmadge's 2011 edition of, Diet Simple. After reading the first edition of Diet Simple, I knew this was a credo by which I could live. No, "You can't have....." No, "points" no "Not alloweds". Diet Simple is just a down-to-earth book that validates what medical professionals and people with a 'lick 'o sense' already know.
So. Fast-forward to my appointment with my Doctor in Feb 2011. Yep. I was 20 pounds heavy. Yep, I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol and all that junk.Yes. Yes and Yes. Of course, the Dr. wanted to put me on meds for BP, cholesterol.....you know....those wonderful non-mind-altering drugs of middle age. Shoot. I didn't take drugs in the '70's, the '80's or the '90's, so why start now? I told Dr. C, "You know? I can fix this. I already exercise, so the thing that is missing is my diet. I told Dr. C that, "I am on a diet.". He rolled his eyes and said, "What diet?" That;s when I laid out the basic principal of "Diet Simple" and Katherine Tallmadge. Good, healthy nutrition.....activity....no, "NOs". Common sense and GREAT recipes! Dr. C said, "I don't know this girl, but I really like her'!
We all live on this great-big ball of dust. And, our lives are so precious. Katherine explains to us how we can live full and bountiful lives without the 'No. You can't....".
Her recipes are wonderful! She has really done her research and from a non-cooker.....I have 2 of her salads in my fridge now to eat for lunch this week; a jar of the most wonderful (and healthy) dressing for our dinner salads and (hehehe....) I am going to surprise my husband with one of the pork dishes which is in the latest revision of Diet Simple!
So. Here is the last testimony. It is May 23rd as I write this.
My husband LOVES Katherine's recipe (which I make) for oatmeal. He doesn't start his morning well without it.
I "cook" on Sundays.....which means I make Katherine's delicious "to keep" recipes. Only problem is that they do not last the week! Husband and family find their way to my house with 'doggy bags'.
But, selfishly to me? I am back in single didget clothes. Not a 4, but; then......Why would I want to?
Buy this book, Buy a pedometer. Do at least 10,000 steps a day (as recommended in Diet Simple and let me know how it goes!
When I graduated school, got married and began my work in the Foreign Service, everything changed. I lived all over the world and my work hours became extended. There was not much time for sports and physical activity, and I got busy with my family life. I was outdoors less and less. I also started eating more food that wasn't traditional Indian food, more sweets. I had more access to money so I ate what I felt like without thinking about it. I began gaining weight.
After being stationed in the United States I was put on anxiety medications. I was having symptoms like heart palpitations. After one year I got pneumonia. The doctor found I was diabetic. This was a shock to me as I was still so young. The doctor told me about Katherine Tallmadge's "Diet Simple" program and said if I changed my habits and lost some weight I may be able to control my blood sugar without medications. Well, I'm happy to say I achieved even more!
"Diet Simple" helped me and my wife lose 25 pounds. On top of that, I no longer take any medications- for anxiety or for diabetes.
I read "Diet Simple," then asked my wife to read it and follow it as well. We both brought it into our lives and she lost weight as well. We both chose a few of the strategies, and began cooking delicious meals. To some extent I have gone back to a more traditional Indian way of eating and living.
Now I feel good, very good, much better. My wife is also maintaining the weight she lost. Katherine explains things that you didn't know before. Like WHY you need to be physically active. What it does for your metabolism. These are the kinds of things we are not always aware of generally. That kind of awareness is required to lose weight and change your lifestyle.
"Diet Simple" really helped me learn about my body and how my body functions. Now I feel that I don't need to go to the doctor as much. One can keep away from medicine if one controls one's diet and exercise.
