I eat too big of portions of foods that are good for me. When i eat things that are bad for me like a hamburger, i only eat half and dont eat frys. but I eat somthing bad for me every day along with the things that are good (oatmeal) I really dont have a clue how to eat right. My wife had a car accident 5 years ago and had a massive head injury, she does pretty well taking care of house and such but can not cook anymore. I work 10 hours a day and just try best i can to eat right. best i can is a cop out.View Thread
I wish I was as disciplined as alot of you guys. Its been 5 months since my 5 bypass surgery. I walk or ride a bike for 1 hour a day , 5 or 6 days a week but gaining back weight. I can seem to eat right. Then i feel worthless for not being disciplined enough.View Thread
