"Great Minds think Alike".
We all know that phrase from "our OPRAH".
It summarizes the experience of an internal light bulb going off and to your life change being made so vividly.
I was reading along yesterday in my Gretchen Rubin book, Better than Before. (She is also the author of Happiness Project , the one I so throughly enjoyed, I read it twice as discussed in previous posts.)
In Better than Before she studies habits. How to rid out bad ones, how to create good ones, and summarizes personality types determining how we all process changes. It's a fascinating study, much like I found the pursuit of being happier by doing things that make you happy in the Happiness Project.
Out of nowhere she writes about her finding a book that changed her life by Gary Taubes titled "Why We get Fat" and starts selling the low carb lifestyle sales pitch.
She too found low carb living and it changed her mindset of eating along with her entire body!
I was SO excited to read this, especially from her, and the title of a new download for another "bible" to reference from Taubes. I found it all a little ironic considering I read and re read her fist book and it had such a huge influence on me these last 2 years.
Taubes take seems to be a more scientific explanation of how the body consumes and processes sugar or simple carbs, deals with insulin and stores extra as fat for later.
She was the reason I "thought big" and started this blog!
I didn't know until yesterday we had not only OCD list making, over analyzing, zest for progress not perfection, a sense of order, and a constant need for improvement in common.
Gretchen is a LOW CARB-er TOO!!! : )
I found many low carb communities on my fit bit tracker site and have been reading, sharing and copying new ideas or recipes.
I have several Facebook pages I "liked" that also provide me a connection with like minded people. The PaleoMom.com, Low carb crock pot cooking, Low Carb High Protein lifestyle.
I love Tosca Reno's blog and No Sugar Challenge. She is a fitness model and competitor and at 55+, she rocks.
