Is Dieting a Four letter Word:  Part 2-

Friday we discussed how crazy, fad diets don’t work for long-term health and energy.  What does work?  Clean eating.  A balanced food plan filled with un-processed seasonal vegetables, lean proteins complex carbohydrates, whole grains, fruits, low fat dairy and water.

What is one of the biggest differences between fad dieting and clean eating?  A boatload of food!  When you make foods from scratch, without lots of added sugars, salts, and preservatives, you have room for the calories to come from pure food.  That leaves you with lots of foods to choose from.  Who can start a day off well looking forward to …hot lemon juice with a squirt of Tabasco (fad dieting) or a sugar laden donut, or a bagel big enough for 2 people?  Rather, try starting off with an egg white omelets with spinach, broccoli, low fat cheddar or fat free feta and whole wheat, low sodium toast with  a slice of tomato, or a spray of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and a sprinkle if straight ground cinnamon (the butter spray is a processed food pleasure of mine).  If you’re short on time, cook some raw oatmeal at night, put cinnamon in with the pure oats, and put into bowls.  Just fluff, add some water and re-heat in the morning.  I would vote for the big egg breakfast for optimal energy and health and so can you!
