Healthy Eating Plan/DASH Diet

Heres my plan:

DAILY:
6 grains
4-5 fruits
4 vegies
3 dairy
2-3 proteins
2-3 fats
1 potassium rich food
1 treat (sherbet or popsicle)
2 Coke Zeros MAXIMUM then lemon mint water and Crystal Light

Angel Food Cake on Sundays
and an icecream treat one time a month!!!

Thats my DASH diet/healthy eating plan!
I have NEVER been able to stick to a diet. Never. But at my last doctors appt I have high BP. I already had high cholesterol and 30 extra pounds. I have been on cholesterol medicine a year and it has worked. I really dont want to add more medicine so I asked my doctor to give me two months to try to lower my BP by diet and exercise.


Here I go yet again!!!!!!

hugs, train

Good luck Train. I'm back from vacation and need to grocery shop for the diet I'm starting.

With a few adjustments, I am back on this eating plan once again.
I have been diagnosed with pre diabetes and that was the scare it took to get me serious.
When I tried this "diet" in 2012 I was not able to stick to it, just like I've never been able to stick to any diet I have ever tried.

This time I have! I started on February 21 and have lost 9 pounds so far out of a total of 30 that I need to lose. (Yeah, the same 30 I needed to lose 2 years ago!! HAHA!!

I tweaked the plan a bit and it is working for me now!!

hugs, train
