I am still applying a few THM principles to my eating habits, but most meals from now on are going to be crossovers. For the most part, I will not worry about keeping fats & carbs separate. I will allow myself to eat anything I want but try to do it in moderation and focus on nutrient-rich foods. I *need* to start exercising regularly again. I also plan to keep a food/exercise journal for awhile...not calorie counting, but just seeing that I'm eating a balanced diet and not a bunch of junk food. That is what worked for me to get to a healthy weight in the past and maintain it for well over a year before I got pregnant with Nathanael.
Moderation is something I can do long-term and apply in any situation.
I happily ate a scoop of ice cream with strawberries last night. I had a piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and honey for breakfast and the cottage berry whip for a late morning "snack" this morning. Wow...I sure did miss my pb & honey toast :-).
Best of luck to my THM friends - I may come back to follow the plan in the future; it certainly intrigues me. However, I think I need to at least wait until I get the book or see a decline in my health before I give it a go again.
