Tomorrow will be a new year. Even though next year and last year are separated by an imaginary line, people like to start new things in the new year. It is a good way to measure how long you can stay committed to those things you decide need to be changed. For my part, I am once again going zero carb and sugar in the new month. We will see how dedicated I am to that course.
If you are going to go carb free in the new year the time to start is today. If you are serious then you will need to start eating breakfast, starting tomorrow. Your new energy supply will be from protein and fats, so you will want to begin the process of converting your body away from carbs first thing in the morning. Make sure you have breakfast meats for tomorrow. My breakfast will be breakfast meat and two fried eggs. This will supply my with energy from the fat and nutrients from the meat. The fats in my breakfast will carry me without hunger all the way to lunch time.
Lunch on January One will be meat. This first day make sure you have meats to eat for this first day. For me, it may be some venison sausage provided by a bountiful hunting season this year. I may have some cheese to go with it, and it will be washed down with water from the tap. Tap water has no plastics that have bled into the liquid–this is a problem with bottled water. The plastics in your drinks from plastic bottles are actually hormone-like, and they act like estrogen in the human body. Who needs that?
Dinner own January One will be meat. Thaw it out today. Brine it tonight if we need the meats brined. I will have brined pork, chicken or turkey for roasting on this day, and I will eat it. I will save leftover for lunch on January Two. The bones I will pick clean and then boil into a meat stock, you might call it bone broth, and that will be a base for soups and sauces in the coming week.
Being successful at changing one’s diet takes planning and consistency. Planning and consistency is one are of my life that I will be working to improve, and that will coincide nicely with my efforts to correct my diet in the new year.
