Ever try Dave's Killer Bread?

No, I haven't. It sounds...killer. Is it as expensive in the store as it is to mail order ($23 for two loaves)?

One thing I should do is start using whole grain flour. I don't make all of my bread--not even close--but I do like to make it.

I think it was like $6-7 a loaf back in California. On the east coast  I'd have to mail order and no bread is worth $23.

I have a bread maker but even when following the recipes the bread always seem brittle. Slicing it is out of the questions so I end up biting chunks off it like a giant muffin.

Getting into a good diet is really the hardest thing for me. Every time I say I'm going to switch my diet and work on eating healthier, I always go back to my old ones about a week or so later. It's at the point where I don't even tell my family and friends anymore because they don't believe I can do it.

Yeah. Been there and done that a few times. I did actually stick with the South Beach Diet some years ago when I first found out my cholesterol was not good. I lost about 18 lbs. and my cholesterol started shaping up. Then I very slowly fell off the wagon. Can't let that happen again.

The winter is ruining me because I want hearty food. In the summer it's too hot to eat so I can eat light meals.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I tried Beachbody's 21 Day Fix recently. It helped a little with motivation but wasn't a solution that kept with me in the long end.

If you can get past the first 10 days to 2 weeks, the South Beach diet can really get you moving in the right direction fast. It's just your stuck eating nothing but meat and veggies for a while, and that's tougher than it sounds. No bread, fruit, milk, nothing. For the first phase, it's hard. After that, it gets easier... and results come quickly.

It seems I have jumped the gun on my blood pressure, as it seems to be normal according to my doctor. My recent readings with an arm cuff at home confirmed this to me.

However, it does not matter. I am determined to stick with what I have changed. Today was day four of that change. I've noticed my pulse has been high these past few days. I read that a dramatic cut in caffeine intake can cause what is called a "rebound" effect, increasing pulse, blood pressure, and having other effects on your body. My guess is that is why my pulse has been higher.

Last night I avoided having a snack after dinner. If I keep that up it will be a good cutback.

My main change with "snacks" is the type of snack. Switching from sugary cereal (most generally) to an apple, banana, oatmeal, or a cheese stick.

My snacks are pretty healthy but maybe too much. Like pikachulover with eggs even though they're healthy in general, I'm not sure about the benefit of cheese in the quantity I consume it. I do also like carrots, fruit, and cereal though. For me non-sugary cereal like regular Cheerios or Rice Chex (although I buy generic brands) is great. I like to mix them up.

Added sweeteners show up in store-bought, factory made sauces. Sugar just doesn't sound right in my tomato sauce! So I cut up tomatoes myself. There's also canned tomatoes. Whether I just cook diced tomatoes or roast and reduce them to a real sauce, it's better than Prego. And it's pretty easy.
