A new year, a new project

I have to admit that I feel that my body betrayed me.  With MS it just does not behave the way it did and I don’t really like it.  But somewhere along the way I betrayed my body.  I will begin the work of changing that today.

When I was diagnosed and put on such a large dose of steroids my weight went up.  My B12 levels dropped dramatically and my weight went up further.  I am now afraid to work out, so my weight went up more.

I am starting a slow carb diet.  I found it in the Four Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss who was featured on Dr. Oz.  He seems to make sense from everything that I know so here it goes.

Four meals a day, 6 days a week.  Each meal to consist of a protein, a legume, and a vegetable.  No bread, fruit, potatoes (or other white starches).  On day 7, as he puts it, Dieters Gone Wild.

Lets see where this goes!
