Don't Let Being a Picky Eater Make You Overweight.


Don’t let being a picky eater make you fat. Many of you pride yourself in being picky. Many of you tell us what you will and won’t eat.. “… I do not eat vegetables; I do not eat eggs..the only meat I eat is turkey”.

Now while not eating certain foods is ok, I ask that you don’t close your mind to new foods. You must be willing to change your diet and lifestyle. If the foods you were eating before you joined the program are the foods that are making you gain weight, then maybe you will have to change. Switch Yogurt for Greek Yogurt (carbs and protein must be equal). Give up crackers for Low carb pita slices. Give up pasta for Dreamfield pasta.

For every food, you think you must have there is a lower carb alternative. I encourage you to spend a few extra minutes in the store reading labels. Your grocery store visit may take 15 minutes longer but you will eventually get faster and learn the key words (like sugar-free, high protein) on labels that indicate high protein items and low carb items. You and your children did not learn the alphabet or math after hearing it once. You practiced. Practice the dietary concept until it becomes part of your life….just like the alphabet and numbers.

Managing Expectations

They both had been losing weight at some of the fastest rates of anyone in the program, but yet they were upset. Both of these patients showed tremendous dedication to exercise and the dietary concept, so we did not think they would quit.

Making Veggies Tasty

We are finding that a lot of people do not eat enough vegetables. We have heard everything from I do not like vegetables to “I only eat peas corn and carrots (all of which are high in carbs).” Veggies are essential to weight loss because they fill you up,

The Chemistry of Weight Loss

It’s a known fact that anything you do to lose weight will work in the beginning. However, to keep losing weight, you have to get into the chemistry of weight loss. An understanding of the fat storage insulin helps.

Ridiculous Calories

As much as we talk about carb and protein numbers, calories are still important. If someone sticks to their carb and protein numbers and eats reasonably, they don’t need to think about the calories. There’s one exception — ridiculous calories
