First of all, thank you for finding this page. I’m hoping that the information herein will help you eat your way to better health. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any condition or disease. Please consult with your own physician or health care specialist regarding the suggestions and recommendations on this site. I have no degree in medicine, only a keen mind that searches for truth.
We’re being bombarded with misinformation that has lead us down the path to ill-health and obesity. Every time I hear one of my water aerobics instructors counsel the ladies as to what constitutes healthy eating, I cringe. Why? Because 90% of the teachers are overweight. Something is out of sync. This morning one of them recommended we try Nutella on bananas. Nutella alone has 21 grams of sugar per 2 tablespoons. Bananas, as are all tropical fruits, are very high in sugar. That’s a combo that will spike your blood sugar and then drop it precipitously, thus beginning the hunger cycle.
I’ve been asked hundreds of times about how Bob and I maintain our weight. It became easier for me to write it down and then direct people to this blog. The nature of blogs is to list the most recent posts on top. In order to find the first post that I wrote in July 2010, about what we ate to lose and maintain, you previously had to scroll down the entire page to the bottom. It now resides on it’s own page. You’ll find the tab to it at the top in the green bar. As I find new facts documenting the value of this way of eating, I'll share them with all of you, the most recent being the first thing you’ll see after this foreword.
If you’re new to this blog, click here > Our New Way of Eating and you can read about the plan we’ve been following. Two of my daughters and several friends have found this way of “dieting” painless. My oldest daughter submitted this post: My New Diet Religion: high fat, big loss. One of our friends has lost 85 pounds following this way of eating! The green tabs at the top will take you to different areas. Good luck and stay healthy.
