Hi, ALL!!

Welcome, Lindsay! I agree with Molly - good questions and keeping asking! I've read the book about 3 or 4 times now and continue to connect the dots and learn new things.

A couple of key things to think about
  • Moderation - like someone said in a post above...even too much of a lg good becomes a hg food!
  • Avoid consuming high GI foods with large amounts of protein (don't eat fruit with a steak - this is covered in the book somewhere under the chemical interactions: glucagon vs. insulin production)
  • SMALL amounts of "illegal" things periodically aren't going to derail you unless you let it into all your foods (i.e., the small quantities of cornstarch in the Garden Herb Triscuits) I think somewhere on the board is a guideline...avoid foods where sugar is in the first 5 ingredients? (Kate - didn't you post that somewhere?)
  • Some people do better drawing a line in the sand and jumping right in...others do better attacking one area of the food stuff at a time (cutting out nightly desserts, giving up regular sodas, etc...). Do what will keep you going on this without getting frustrated. Molly is right - pretty soon this will be 2nd nature - you will begin losing the taste for certain "bad" foods.
  • Cook once and freeze individual portions if your time is tight, then you'll be able to eat healthier and more balanced meals.
  • PLAN MENUS AHEAD!! If you plan, you will be less likely to grab a burger and fries on the run because of convenience.
  • Drink lots of water - even mild dehydration can negatively impact you.
  • Knowledge is power!! You wrote that you hate reading the nutrition labels. At first it was horribly confusing, but now I even have my 10 year old looking at them!! She's starting to be able to tell what is acceptable and what's off limits!
I hope this isn't overload! Hang in there!! You CAN do this!

Joanie
