Two days ago I started an new workout program, The Masters Hammer and Chisel, a weights and sculpting program, having completed two rounds of Body Beast, a weights program. I’m pleased with the results from Body Beast with one exception: my belly. I can’t seem to get rid of my excess middle!
So I’m going to try something for a while. I’m going to consciously minimize-not eliminate-my intake of refined carbohydrates. For example, last night I had leftover organic spaghetti with homemade marinara. While the spaghetti was organic, it was still a refined carb. Ever since I went vegan, I think I have unconsciously gravitated toward carbs. When I do have refined cards from this point on, I’m going to seek out whole grains.
Lucky for me, I have a Fitbit that I can use to help me track my intake. So far today by mid-morning, my refined carbs have consisted of two fig Newtons. Wish me luck!
