I started keeping a calorie count yesterday in preparation for our upcoming 28-Day Diet to determine the body’s metabolic rate. While Dr. Siegal (Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat?) allows diet sodas and other non-nutritive diet foods, we are going to take a higher road here on OsteoDiet. We may be cutting back on calories for 28 days, but we are going to make every calorie count for nutrition, strong bones, and healthy eating!
By my count, yesterday’s total calories was about 1500. I’ll start decreasing my calorie intake today, gradually aiming toward the 1000 calorie-per-day mark. That way Day 1 of the 28-Day Diet will not be a shock to my system!
Only 9 more days until our 28-Day Diet adventure!
