Real Food

What we were designed to eat has seven characteristics:

1.Low glycemic load

2.Lots of omega-3 fats (wild food)

3.Balance of protein, fat and slowly absorbed carbohydrates

4.Abundance of vitamins and minerals

5.Many alkaline foods, which prevent blood from ever becoming too acidic

6.Low levels of sodium

7.High fiber content—food as close to nature as possible: think about the process: apple with skin onà skinned apple (fiber is gone)à sliced apple (biting is gone)àmashed apple (chewing is gone) àjuiced apple (manufacturers did all the work for you!)

WHICH MEANS….

  1. NO transfats
  2. NO High fructose corn syrup, or dextrose, or all these names for extra refined sugar added in foods for taste and preservation
  3. NO MSG
  4. NO aspartame
  5. As little preservatives and artificial stuff as possible!

Now look at what you ate thus far today and what you will eat the rest of the day; does it fit these criteria’s?  Great if it does.  If it doesn’t, well…  Time to get back to basics!  Switch things around if necessary: oatmeal instead of sugary flakes, natural muffin instead of a store-bought cookie, asparagus instead of macaroni and cheese filled with junk, salmon instead of fish sticks… you get the picture!  It’s not time to relax and allow yourself to go back to eating junk; remember how it made you fee? N.E.W.A.Y. all the way!
