Ok, since my husband was released from the hospital we have been following an 1800 calorie diabetic eating plan. The first few days were a little daunting because I haven't meal planned in forever. I also haven't weighed and measured food since my last attempt at calorie counting.
Fast forward to today -- it has gotten much easier, Hubs is eating what I cook, I am learning some kitchen tricks to keep myself sane and I am not dreading the activity quite as much.
However, I have noticed something that is sort of surprising. I feel completely different. I have lost seven pounds and I feel like my digestion has improved. Those are things one would expect when changing your diet completely.
But......what I wasn't expecting is that my joints are so much better. I am less stiff. I even got on the floor to look for something under the bed. I was shocked.
Is it possible that changing a diet could make your joints quit hurting? Very interesting.
Just thought I would share.
