There are some good points in this article. Some I disagree with and will not include in my daily eating plan.
No low fat. No low, or artificial sugar items. Eat healthy fats, avoid others. Would rather eat lean bacon,broiled, than some turkey bacon that's full of additives to make it taste like bacon. That goes for any modified food.
I always start out my day with protein, it gives me the energy to exercise and keeps me full. My one carb might be rye bread, the only kind that helps in curbing hunger.
Lunch is usually salads with a protein. You can fill up on salad greens.
Dinner is more protein and vegetables. Dinner is always light. A fruit snack, like grapes in the evening. Nothing to eat after 9:00pm.
Always try to keep my carbs under 100 grams. Almost no starchy carbs. No oatmeal.
What some people can consume in the form of grains ,is not for me..
I work with a dietitian and see my doctor for a check on my weight loss every 4 months.
I'm comfortable in what I have accomplished and what direction my life has taken.
Everyone has to make their own decision. on the types of food to eat. What works for me, might not be feasible for others.
I commend Spark for the articles and giving us more information . It's up to us to go further and learn more, and either use it or not.
