If only I would follow what I already know!

My downfall is comparing food to deck of cards or dice etc. etc. I am better judging what 1/2 cup of veggies look like etc. or 3 oz. of meat. That doesn't mean I follow it but I at least try. Have a great Thursday!

I suck at all these quizzes!

You know a thing or two about portions, and that's important when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. Way to go! I had heard most of this before. Doesn't mean I always follow it!

"You know a thing or two about portions, and that's important when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. Way to go!" Results 12/16

I'm glad I checked this out! I need to eat peas more often, a good source of protein!

Try watching the excellent and entertaining DOCUMENTARY: "CARB-LOADED: A Culture Dying to Eat." Available free on youtube. Website:

I think SparkPeople is out of line with a lot of emerging research and facts on nutrition and portions. People don't even know what the *macronutrients* ARE (they include protein, fats, and carbs - but ONLY protein and fat have daily minimums required by the human body; there IS NO minimum daily requirement for carbs!!), nor do they know what insulin does inside their own body. Most people have no idea of the latter until they become diabetic, pre-diabetic, or insulin-resistant. People with too much insulin -- NOT JUST those who already have diabetes - do not need "2 to 5" daily servings of fruits (carbohydrates)! It will be interesting to see whether SP chooses to update the nutrition information it espouses, or even WHETHER SP wants to amend its beliefs and nutritional advice.
