I just purchased the book, FOK yesterday. I had been eating fairly healthy, so I thought, for about 6 years when hubby was diagnosed with cancer at that time.
So even before his diagonsis, we basically went from white to brown, no red meats, healthy oils so we thought such as olive oil, and basically no sugar, at least for him. It was because his trigs and cholesterol were outta sight. He became really healthy but alas, passed away about 8 weeks ago.
We ate bascially the same thing as I made all my own healthy sauces, did veggies, salads, and fresh fruit. Also did lentils, couscous, brown rice, and such like these.
But we did eat salmon, chicken, ground turkey, and lean pork. Which I know is not what FOK advocates. But with hubby now passed, I am willing to give this a go as I really would like to be healthier.
But I will be honest, me, all my teeth are sweet teeth. Once I get the sugar out of my system, I am good. But I wonder about all the fruits that you are allowed to eat? I am concerned about spiking my sugar with the fruits although I do love frozen as well as fresh.
And can you lead me in the right direction now for what to do to get started? I've had a lot of hoops to jump through lately to get things tied up but really need to get started now. So any help is more than appreciated.
What is recommended for quick breakfasts and lunches?
Thanks for any & all help.
