This list is great! I use it as a shopping list because I have a tendency to eat the same foods over and over again. This list reminds me that there is variety out there so you eat right but not get bored doing it. I am 17 lbs. away from my goal weight. When I'm done and in maintainance, I will have lost 112 lbs!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!

While this is common sense - I'm putting this on my fridge as a reminder to try and get as many of these in as I can throughout each week.
This list is ridiculous. You could have just written- eat all fruits, vegetables and lean meats and seed/nut sources of protein. Iím glad it helped some, but, honestly, if you have the slightest clue about healthy eating, this list is a declaration from the master of the obvious filesÖ And affordable?? How are good fresh fruits and vegetables affordable when not in season or donít ever grow in your area?
Terrific list...full of good things! I'm going to continue to try new foods and work more of these into our diets. Yesterday I fooled husband and teens with whole-grain pancakes...they didn't even notice the difference!
Hi everybody, this is the first time for me, and would like to get help with my problem, I have diabetes is on Actos 45mg, ever since I've been on it I have gained so much weight. I try to watch what I eat but so far no luck in losing.
Right, BGG. I copied, pasted, printed this chart and take it grocery shopping. I like this positive approach because it is so much harder to know what TO buy, rather than just what NOT TO buy. By now I pretty much have the list memorized from using it so much. The only change I made is to add turmeric to the list--one of the best anticarcinagens--and I must make an effort to work it into my diet in soups and stews since it is not commonly used in American recipes.
You could highlight the chart in the article and copy/paste it into a Word document. Delete any text you don't want from the Word document. That worked for me. It might work with other softwares as well. Good luck.
