The site was actually quite intriguing. There were several places where a link would take you to some other site where you could put in your information and get a 'result' of sorts that gave you some information about where you stood on that issue compared with the general population. I did all I could at every opportunity and also answered the whole of the questionnaire about what I generally consume in a week. Of course I did my best. I ended up being above average on some of the survey and just below on others.
At the end I was told not to snack so much between meals, eat more green vegetables and less saturated fats, (I think they said.) Anyway, the fats that are bad for you. In fact they will guide me through the first four weeks of change with a detailed diet for only $49, they said.
Looking further at the website, I see samples of what should be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as occasional and snack foods. Quite frankly, I could not eat that much food if I wanted to. Well, if they paid me well enough I guess I would have to have a go at it, but not when I have to buy the information to follow. And there is another matter connected to that, what will I do about learning to cook it all. My preference is anything that has at most, four ingredients. I can throw it into the stir fry and in 10 minutes I can eat.
So, I am going to pay $49, all my food budget for two weeks, to then scrape together money to buy food that is not at my favourite super store on special? I don't think so. I can see that following that track could cost me a lot more money than just the $49. And then there comes the question of trying to cook it, especially if there are vegetables, etc. which I have not eaten before or which I just don't know how to cook.
If I need to lose weight, then I will use my fool proof method that has never let me down. "Half the input and double the output." So, smaller portions and more activity. It is actually the activity side that has to increase and hopefully it will if I get rid of this pain that stops me from walking, especially walking quickly or fast. But that is another story which I may, or may not, get to writing about sometime in the future.
