I haven’t posted in a couple of months or so because I kind of ran out of things to say and new things to offer. But now that I am back in the game, I might as well share what insights I have attained.
First of all, it is not so important to be strict with your diet. Ultimately, it’s about calories in and calories out. The easiest way to reduce calories is to reduce sugar.
I noticed over this passed time that perfect diet is not really necessary. As long as you are watching portion size and timing of meals, it’s not really necessary to bother people with your dietary restrictions.
The only two really heinous food groups are dairy and grain, and yet, there are exceptions. People literally could live off of bread and cheese, and in some countries around the world, they actually do. But a real healthy diet includes a lot of protein and a lot of fiber and is low in sugar.
Also, I’ve noticed that it’s not easy to eat protein foods all day and never eat anything sweet or starchy. Carbs should be part of your diet, it’s just choosing the best carbs is the trick.
Vegetables is man’s primary foodstuff, and on a low carb diet, it’s easy to neglect them. Also, high quality cooking fats are important. Olive oil and butter come to mind.
So as I continue my health and recovery journey, I will try to strike a balance between exercise and a doable version of the low carb (or Bi-Gu) diet. Grain really is the first junk food, and health increases when you stop eating starchy grains.
