He says in the book that we can have 25 mg of fructose per day which is a couple of oranges, etc. but the whole fruit is what is important as it has the fiber, etc. The book is really good. I know I got fat from drinking two liter bottles of COKE all day long, which I don't do now any more. I have GOUT and I don't want to deal with the pain from it, so I'm making changes.
thank you for recommending the lectures, they were very enlightening. i already try not to eat too much sugar, but at least for a while i am now going to track my sugar intake to ensure i am not eating more than what is made necessary by food manufacturers (a zero sugar diet seems about impossible, but we'll see...) thanks for the advice, i'll be spreading it myself!
i have just recently accomplished my short term goal of the last couple months- to train for and run warrior dash. so this week has been my week off after that accomplishment and starting tomorrow, sunday september 23, i am starting another short term goal and i have a few ideas what i would like to do with this 7 week period (all of my s.t.g.'s are 6-10 weeks). so my STG's for sept 23-november 10 are: 1. train for and run the virtual 5k on sparkpeople 2. run/do cardio 3x/week 3. strength train 3x/week 4. use the goals above to help myself lose 10 lbs and 3% body fat 5. sleep at least 6 hours each day (a hard one due to my work schedule, but necessary)
feel free to chime in ideas of your own that i can use for the november 10 period STG's or to give me honest input about the goals i have set! thanks!
