Day 70- Nutrition Bite

The Wed Shed Diet
The Wed Shed Diet is for those who love to eat healthy foods with minimal refined sugar. The diet is also created for those living on a limited budget who shop at the local supermarkets such as Wal-mart. If you are an organic yuppie, you can modify the diet by purchasing foods at a health store. I strongly advocate natural food stores, but they do require a larger budget. The diet consists of 5 small meals and a daily exercise regime. The diet consists of a 1200-1300 calorie diet. If you weigh more than 140 lbs., please increase your portion size. The Wed Shed Diet consist of grains, nuts, fruit, fish, dairy, and fish (basically foods you would find in the woods gathering or fishing). The snacks are only fruit, veggies, and nuts. The Sugar Preacher will post a daily menu for seven days with a daily exercise routine. The diet can be modified to meet your needs. The diet is actually created for the Sugar Preacher's sister, Hilary, who is getting married on July 18th and would like to lose 10lbs.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
Hilary's picture is posted at the top of the site. She weighs 127 lbs., but she weighed 117 lbs. for several years. She would like to obtain an ideal weight for her wedding. I'm also planning to participate in the Wed Shed Diet. I currently weigh 140 lbs. and would like to lose eight lbs. Dieting and exercising can be fun!
