OK So I have the walking thing down, no abs of steel yet. I think miss VH was WAY wrong about the 11 miles a week thing. But I do feel better and sleep better after walking.
I put Devin on a diet about a year ago. No my son is not heavy at ALL. Actually the little bugger is 5'3" and weighs in at 85 pounds. Last winter during wrestling season he weighed 73 pounds. And we needed him to bulk up a bit (most wrestlers cut weight) so we put Devin on a diet. Really all we did was cut the soda, sugar, and snack foods. We made him eat a lot more meat, milk (with protein power), ice cream and yogurt. In about two weeks time we got 5 pound on him. There was a HUGE uproar in the house from MD and Devin as there was no snacks in the house other than popcorn.
Wow I went on a rant there, sorry. Back to the topic. Previously I said I would never go on any diet. I should clarify no FAD diets. But I do believe in eating well. I found a little website called 3-A-Day. I will have to say that at least Devin and I have followed their instructions. Mainly by eating TONS of yogurt (Devin's favorite snack). And one cannot forget the food pyramid. This website designs a personal caloric intake and food pyramid for you. I guess we shall see. Time to plan meals and grocery shop.
