I stick to whole grains and they are a staple in my diet.stuward wrote:Good to see you back Hoister and I'm glad to see your health has improved.
I'm just curious if you've made any changes with regard to grains, sugar, vegetable oils, processed, junk or fast foods?
No sugars other than what occurs naturally in fruits and veggies for example. No sweets or candy, etc.
Vegetable oil, olive oil, peanut oil - i do use in recipes, but sparingly.
Junk food and fast food are all no-no's for me. Never really have liked them. When i snack, it has always been using nuts, seeds, fruits, etc. So junk food has never really been an issue for me.
My eating habits are simple. I eat only when i am hungry and let my body tell me when it needs something. I tend to crave things that i need from what i can tell, so i literally go with my gut! I eat only enough to satisfy my physical needs. I have never been one to count grams of this and grams of that. I just go with what feels right at the time. WOrks for me, maybe not others, but that's it really. The only thing i intentially try to do is include a lot of variety in my meals to ensure that i get all of the nutrients, etc. I actually find eating a nuisance so i try to keep it simple. Which is why the vegan diet works well - i don't need a barbeque or broiler to get a good meal in.
