What am I learning from the spark experience? There are people out there that have to eat like me... from my food tracker wen I get the daily report, I'm learning that I'm eating too much fat... blah blah blah.... and not eating enough carbs... but I ignore all that! Afterall the food report is geared toward a high carb low fat diet.... I call it the hog fattening diet! Keep up all the good work!! Paula
I agree. Home cooking is best. You know what is in it. I also try to avoid most processed foods and eat fresh as much as possible. Shopping the perimeter of the store really is best.

Me too! There are a few choices you can make when eating out, but not many!
Salad bars are good, if you know what to pick... I just stay away from the prepared salads there like macaroni, potato, even tuna salad on a salad bar can have hidden carbs, like bread crumbs. I usually stick with salad greens like romaine lettuce, cucumbers, raddish etc. Shredded cheese, and lean ham, real bacon bits not the fake ones.... and oil and vinegar dressing... but overall you are right you control the ingredients when you make your meals at home. We Can Do This!!
