Weight Problem

28 May

Everywhere you look people are trying to lose weight and many are going about this the wrong way. They go from diet to diet because they just can’t seem to stick to one and many also expect miracle results.  They expect to lose the weight in an extraordinary short space of time.

I am not a dietitian or a medical person but I have studied food and read a lot about food  over the last 20 years. I feel I understand how food works and the kinds of food that help us to maintain health. 

I have lost about 40 pounds over the last four years by following a combination of diets that makes sense for me.

I eat whole grain, I prepare most of my food myself using the best ingredients. I use only Olive Oil.  I prepare simple foods. I eat fresh vegetables or frozen but rarely never from a tin.

I pay close attention to the the salt and sugar contents of anything that I eat.  I do not cook with salt and I don’t eat sugar. I eat fresh fruits and I pay close attention to serving sizes.

I think if we keep things in moderation people will be able to follow whatever diet they choose. I do a combination of Eat Right for Your Type and the Atkins Diet.

I would like to hear from my readers what works for you.

I would like to share some of my recipes that I use.  Hope to hear from you
