Thats right I said it...lol I have found that if I eat some type of very fiberous veggie like celery or something along with my fruit and other meal foods.. it helps me keep from snacking so much.. Strange but worth a try...
Food does not have vocal cords. It cannot 'call' me from the cupboard/freezer/fridge. Why should I 'love' certain foods - they don't love me back. Once I put food in its proper context, I can enjoy it, but not give it unnecessary power over me.
I have been cutting about 80 to 90 percent of white sugar and flour, and try very hard to get rid of the gluten as well. I have found that it makes me feel a lot better and the pounds have also come off a lot easier. I also try and not eat processed foods.
Eating a breakfast that contains three food groups within an hour of waking every day sets the tone for the day, gets your metabolism going, and helps keep you satisfied until the next meal. Be sure the meal contains less than 9 grams of sugar.
