BECK - DAY 2
Monday, February 08, 2016
On Day 2 of the Beck Diet Solution, I'm supposed to choose two diets. One will be my main diet and the other is a backup when I need a change.
My diets are the Mediterranean Diet and "No Sugar, No Starch, No Seconds."
Neither of these diets promote any processed food. They both focus on plenty of fresh veggies.
I don't actually "follow" either of these diets or any diet. I discovered the way of eating best for my by trial and error and blood work. What raises my blood sugar or lowers my cholesterol? Eat this, avoid that for a month, retest. The two diets above closely mirror what I decided was best for me. Eat mostly plants. Not too much. Avoid sugar. Choose healthy protein.
When I described this to my doctor he called it a cross between Atkins and Mediterranean.
Spark People has a team for Beck, of course:
