Congrats on your excellent Zone results and I wish you continued success!
Thanks! Little Jamie is coming home from the hospital this morning. He's been in the NICU for 10 days. As I type this, I'm sitting here in Maryland with my 2 year old grandson on my lap (he's helping me type...ha). We're waiting for Mommy, Daddy and his new baby brother to arrive home. You have to be 3 years old to go visit the NICU, so he hasn't seen his little brother in person yet. It's a very exciting day here!
Oh wow, small world! We were neighbors! My street's off Tunnel (through the tunnel, on the left just after curve at top of the hill...not Old Stone, the next one). I'm sure you've already figured it out from this this info. I'm just a few houses before Echo Ridge Dr. My kids all went to Lake Street School. I've lived in Vernon my whole life. Love it! I've been walking/running that very Rails to Trails stretch almost every day since it was completed 16 yrs ago. Absolutely beautiful scenery! I've probably passed by you on the trail and said hi! Actually, my house is about 1/4 mile up over the hill on the other side of the cliffs you come to on the trail after passing Valley Falls. They recently added a Rails to Trails "Rockville Spur" a few years ago. It starts near Vernon Depot, goes over the water at Tankeroosen, under the I-84, over Route 30, behind Center Road, up past the back of RHS and on into Rockville.
One downside of limiting it to one carbohydrate food is you'd be depriving yourself of a variety of vitamins, minerals and polyphenols (they're antioxidants and some are also anti-inflammatories). Also, if you're eating lots legumes, keep in mind they have a higher GL than most of the favorable veggies. This means you probably won't be lowering your insulin levels as much as you could be if you were eating a variety of low density veggies. My tip, keep the bigger picture in mind in the back of you mind. It's not only about the weight loss.
Have a great day Glenn!
