The Million Dollar Question

Wednesday, August 19, 2009


How do you include carbohydrates in you diet in a safe, effective, and controlled way? The “Please KISS Me” (Please Keep It So Simple for Me) plan for carbohydrate control is a wonderful tool that only contains 3 simple rules:

RULE 1: Include the following in your diet:

* Fruits: 2-4 servings daily
* Vegetables: 3-5 servings daily
* Whole grain breads, muffins, bagels, rolls, pasta, noodles, crackers, cereal, and brown rice: 6-11 servings daily
* Legumes, beans and peas: 1-2 servings daily
* Low-fat and non-fat dairy products: 3 servings daily

RULE 2: Limit the following to less than 2 servings daily:

* Fruit Juice
* Refined and processed white flour products (bread, muffins, bagels, rolls, pasta, noodles, crackers, cereal)
* White rice
* French fries
* Fried vegetables

RULE 3: Eliminate the following from your diet or eat only on occasion:

* Sugary desserts, cookies, cakes, pies, candies
* Doughnuts and pastries
* Chips, cola and carbonated beverages
* Sugar, honey, syrup, jam, jelly, molasses

That’s it! A simple, effective carbohydrate-controlling plan that, when combined with your SparkDiet, allows you to reap the countless benefits of complex carbohydrates and fiber while enhancing your health and maintaining a healthy weight. The long term result will be a healthy you!
