JERF - Just Eat Real Food!

NO MORE EXCUSES!

Back on Spark. Focusing on personal development and continuing my education. Not everyone here is going to agree with me and that's okay. It's not up to me change people's minds. All I can do is tell my truth and hope to help someone along the way. Hopefully my results will speak for themselves.

Just Eat Real Food (thanks for that btw Sean Croxton).

I am a Certified Personal Trainer.

I eat vegetables, meats, fats, some fruit and dark chocolate. Unprocessed and preservative free. And it's changed my life!

I think my diet can best be described as a High Fat/ Moderate Protein/ Lower Carb diet with a Primal/Paleo/Atkins influence. I get 90% my carbohydrates from vegetables and fruits so that in itself makes me low carb compared to the SAD. I can be anywhere from 50-150g of carbs a day depending on what I feel like eating that day and what's in season.

I have had great success in the past year shifting my focus onto quality not quantity in both my food and exercise.

Blood sugar regulation is really important to me as diabetes runs in my family. I try to keep my blood sugar levels as low as possible.

I love to cook! I typically eat foods that start with these ingredients.

Carrots
Green Beans
Broccoli
Red Pepper
Spinach
Onions

Parsnip

Personal Information:

Food produces hormonal effects in the body. Some hormones say 'store that fat'; others say 'release sugar'; others say 'build muscle.' Study after study shows that diets based on the same amount of calories, but different proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates, result in different amounts of weight loss.

I really enjoy your approach to nutrition, and agree wholeheartedly! The problem we have in our society, (and rapidly spreading worldwide), is the ubiquity of addictive highly processed foods. Kudos for being able to manage your nutrition, and maintaining such a wonderful lifestyle!

Hi, I added you as a Spark Friend -- I hope that's okay. emoticon

Like you, I'm 5'4, although I'm almost 49 years old. I'm striving to eat similarly to you. I've been following Marla Heller's version of the DASH program for over a year, and I lost 40 pounds eating that way. I recently put back on about 15 pounds after injuring myself doing strength training. I'm still trying to get the arm/shoulder to heal, but am back to eating right and exercising. I do eat some grains, especially quinoa and oats, and try to avoid wheat altogether. I aspire to your level of fitness, building muscle has been hard for me, but I'm keeping at it. Anyway, just wanted to say hi as a like-minded soul. Have a great day!

What I said was that if you are diabetic.. and eat foods that spike your blood sugar, you will need to take meds. By simply not eating foods that spike your blood sugar, you wouldn't need to take all those medications.

The recommended way to treat diabetes is to eat food that spikes your blood sugars " in moderation ", and then take a bunch of pills with side effects, while not really controlling your blood sugars. You may go blind, lose a kidney, foot, or most of your teeth, but those are only body parts. At least while you die, you will know that you followed the diet that the government recommended. You lost that kidney the " right way ". lol

I didn't go anywhere. I did cut myself off the diabetes team, because it seems pointless, and would only lead to me losing my account. Plus, I skipped a few days. It gets kind of depressing to have to think about every word I say, and watch as the advice SP recommends kills people on a daily basis. I would always see diabetics struggling, and I want to just let them know that it isn't that hard to manage.

Hopefully one day they accept that the key to not having high blood sugars, is not eating the food that causes it, and I can rejoin the team. At least I have the low carb teams.
