Yup, it IS the final countdown and no I'm not talking about the "Rapture" end of world type thing.
It's the final countdown for massive weight loss before our annual summer vacation to the sunny beaches of Greece. Cue 80's rock band "Europe" and their 'epic' rock anthem of the same name, "The Final Countdown."...
Ok so is the tune playing in your head now? Let that set the scene for you.
Mama is waging all out war with these 10 lbs I've gained over our long
never ending winter.
Health and fitness will prevail as the beach takes no prisoners.
We've got too many important events coming up that require mama to not appear as a stuffed frankfurter in a cocktail dress. All the Spanx in the world can't help that much...
The only option when executing tactical warfare is to bring out the big guns. No carbs.

Don't worry, I'm not going all Atkins on you and eliminating anything with even a trace of sugar. I'm still eating plenty of vegetables and fruits, including lots of fresh berry's.
But I will say that I've eaten more eggs, nuts, bacon, turkey burgers, lettuce, and full fat salad dressing in the last week than in the last 3 years combined.
The fact is that I actually lose weight when I cut out my beloved carbs. AND IT'S SO HARD. Pasta, wine and bread actually bring me joy. I'm no heavy meat eater so giving up carbs seems unnatural.
But based on the blood type diet by Peter D'Adamo, Eat Right 4 Your Type, according to my blood type which is O, I should basically become a carnivore.
Blood type O is believed to be the earliest human blood group. Directly descended from the cavemen.

Here the "prescribed" diet is low-carb, high in meat and fish, low in dairy. And type O's should work out like a Mofo.
So no carbs and lot's of exercise eh? This is sounding pretty basic to me. I think just about anybody would lose weight this way. Thankfully I've spent no money on this book/diet plan.
So far things seems to be working pretty well, I'm down a few pounds and not feeling hungry at all.
My birthday is tomorrow, my son's birthday party is on Saturday, and we have a Baptism and party to attend on Sunday, then another birthday celebration on Sunday nite.
It's going to be a cake/wine/desserts carb-fest.
But this is war, and the beach doesn't care how good that cupcake tastes. Am I right?
This post is what my blogs name is all about.
