4-20-11 new addition to post: I unfortunately fell off the vegetarian diet because it was too time consuming and I love eating out. I eventually gained even more weight (354 pounds at my heaviest) I am all for a healthy vegetarian diet but I found a system that works even better for me and doesnt rely on any one particular type of food!!! I eat whatever type of food I like and am currently down to 307!! I blog about it here http://www.healthtrucker.com
I love to eat. There is no better way in my opinion to reward ones self for a hard day over the road than a good sit down meal. Preferably at a top notch restaurant. Unfortunately those meals where taking a toll and I ballooned up to 340 lbs. With the weight came Pre-Diabetes, High Blood pressure, and Sleep Apnea. Then I started to have Panic attacks and I knew it was time to make a change. I tried quite a few things but it wasn't until I went vegetarian "oh yeah, and started taking the Metformin my Doctor had prescribed for me" that I met with success. In five weeks I lost thirty pounds. What has been really amazing though is that even though I fell off of my Vegetarian Diet I still have kept most of the 30 lbs off that I originally lost. That is where the Metformin may be helping, also I still bring fresh fruits, nuts and veggies with me on the truck. I will blog more tonight about some of the things that have been helping me on the health battle. Untill then "Eat a Grape" Peace Highwaym.
