Wow! I hardly know where to begin.

Ok - lets start with basics as in have you read the SugarBusters book? Based on the questions you are asking I would guess not. Reading the book is a must! You cannot learn all you need to know from the internet. It is a helpful supplement but is not a replacement for the book. I find it is even helpful to re-read it after being on plan for several months. You will be surprised what you have missed in the first reading.

Second: Why are you on SugarBusters? Is it to lose weight? Gain weight? Is it to restore health? Or is it a preventative measure to insure a healthy future? For me ... I need to lose weight and I need to improve my health as I have a number of physical issues that limit my quality of life. That being said I know that no matter how low GI a snickers bar is - it is not healthy for me ... think of the sugar & unhealthy fats! Common sense would tell me that pound cake (made with white flour and sugar) and Mars Bars are not part of a healthy lifestyle.

Basically on SugarBusters we eat LOW Sugar, moderate fat (with an emphasis on the good fats), lean protein, LOW GI veggies and fruit and complex whole grains and carbohydrates. It is a LOW GI food plan PLUS!

For myself I cannot have more than 2 servings of starchy carbs a day and still lose weight. So I choose those carefully ... a slice of whole grain toast or 1/2 of a baked sweet potato or oats (love the Irish Steel Cut). You can have whole grain pasta. I don't because I don't lose weight when I eat pasta but some people don't have that problem. You will get to know how your body reacts to various foods. Just because it's legal doesn't mean your body can tolerate it. You will find that out thru trial and error.

Foods to avoid... processed grains, white flour, sugar (and any of it's cousins), corn starch, white potatoes, etc. Again the list is in the book.

Don't give up. Keep asking questions. It really isn't hard once you get the hang of it.

ps ...

Your OJ is fine as long as it isn't sweetened but the whole fruit is better due to the fiber in it.

Most breads , even whole grain, will have some added sugar (it helps the yeast to work). I believe the guideline is 3-5 grams of sugar per serving. Ed & Dave might want to chime in here as they have a real handle on that sugar grams thing.

What ingredient was not legal in the triscuits?

You can have carrots in moderate portions & macaroni if it is whole grain.

Hope this helps. (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)





Oh .. here are a couple of sites that I think are top notch for LOW GI info:
