No-longer-dieting Food Critic

In the past several months, I've blogged about all the dieting books I've read, trying to find the magic elixir to losing a few pounds. All it's done, though, is confuse me on what it is that I really need to do. Now, I have a new tactic. It's tried and true; it's proven; it's been used forever. It's called, "Exercise More; Eat Less."

I know, I know, it's really a departure from the instant gratification that we, as Americans, are so used to now.

The things I've learned from reading all those books, though, have not been for naught. For example, I am now eating mostly whole grains and reducing the amount of sugar I intake. Good things to go along with my "Exercise More; Eat Less" plan.

Some aerobic interval training here, some lifting there, and I've noticed a positive change in my body structure. I think I'm looking better. But more importantly, I'm feeling better.
