Runoff

Runoff is a strange topic for me today.  My run mode has been off since I was a freshman in high school. I'm not the exercising type, I'd much rather eat and enjoy my food.

However I have lost about 30 pounds by just making some simple changes in my diet.

Ok I know the runoff this is speaking of has to do with water and I could talk about minimizing runoff in my garden by using drip irrigation but that is boring.

I guess weight runoff is boring too but it seems like everyone always wants to be a little thinner.

You all know we as American's are an obese country and what can we do about it or shall I say what are we going to do about it.

My diet changes started by simply reading ingredient labels.  If there is a word I can't read or a man made ingredient then I don't eat it.

Now I will tell you I was very strict on this way of life for about 6 months and that is when the weight loss happened but I don't feel like its a "diet".

It truly is a way of thinking and changing out American minds to remove the processed junk from our diets.

If it is individually wrapped in plastic and boxed DON'T EAT IT!

There are so many great foods that come straight from God's green earth that we live on that will allow us to be very healthy sustainable people, we just have to fight our urge to eat CRAP and go for the more rewarding piece of healthy pie :)

OK enough about weight runoff I am sure many of you get your run-on.
