How difficult was it to make these changes?
It was not such a dramatic change for me. It was a matter of simply tweaking what I was eating normally. I was already eating a lot of meat, loved fruits and veggies. Most of the adjustment was in the carbs. I loved bread, rice and noodles, as well as beans, corn and potatoes.
The hardest part for me as far as carbs were concerned was getting off rice and noodles. It just seemed such an un-Asian thing to do. It was very much a mental and emotional thing, as are most issues related to food. I made a commitment to eliminate those from my diet and it has been surprisingly easy. And who hasn’t had trouble cutting back on sweets – my big weakness? Ice cream, cheesecake and chocolate. Mmmmmm.
As far as beverages were concerned, I never drank much soda, so eliminating that was easy. Same with alcohol.
In general, it’s been hard finding quality meals, especially since I spend half my time away from home, in airports and hotels. Protein is the hardest to find, so I’m always thrilled when the hotel has eggs for breakfast, especially when they’re free. But as insurance I travel with enough protein to last me 4 days and a pound of almonds. The other difficulty is finding the time in the day to squeeze 5 meals in my waking hours with a reasonable amount of time in between.
