Quoted from PCUKSo , fruit is good for you yet if you are a diabetic you shouldn't eat fruit. according to mercola. plonker.
also he says wheat is bad for you due to the sugar.
surely gotta be more to it than that. either fruit is good for you or not.
perhaps generally a little fruit is good for you and fruits of a certain kind dependent on your blood type.
The glycemic index only addresses how fast the fruit will enter into the bloodstream and kick up a fuss..
I think I read that you can ripen them by putting them in a paper bag ??) :-/; but whatever you do it's not good to refrigerate them, apparently... ;) That's how the flesh develops that yucky brown veiny appearance ::)Avocado is ok.. have two unripe ones.. I wonder will they ever get ripe? ...but I have really made a switch to limits.. smaller portions .. way smaller.. smaller steaks to
you're welcome - I think it's a really great informative article...Quoted from PCUKInteresting Possum, think i'll steal that article from you lol
Quoted TextWhen you say assist cancer with fruits like cherries, and veg like onions, are you saying they are bad for you? Or good in preventing cancer? In the food value list I always thought Onions was good to take? And for O's both says Benifical.
I only recently joined on board, so alittle confused ?
Quoted from Peppermint TwistGoodness, gracious, great balls of fire, I never thought I'd be saying this because, well, I'm me and usually folks have to say this to me, but: RELAX.
PC thanks and all others to..
I eat exactly:
Meat steaks, roasted thin fried or stewed - lean mostly 2x a day,
how much and have you tried them a bit less cooked?
you know you should try some fish, try cod once a week to start.
Eggs for breakfast or how many eggs?
how many eggs hopefully just one a day?
Broth and deep green leaves for breakfast
which deep green leaves?
Olive oil.. 1 spoon - not enough.. some mayo every so often (avoid)
what size spoon? stop the mayo for a month
Nuts:Pumpkin seeds or walnuts
how much try a table spoon each time and don't mix them
no grains (unless I am out very seldom)
Veggies, broccoli, chicory, escarole, kale, ... Kohlrabi Romain, onions cooked only, pumpkin, turnip... zuccini, may add carrots again?
just to humour me try a slight variation - go less of chicory, kale and cut onions out for a week. and continue with the other ones medium size portions
Fruit: blueberry, pineapple, plum, prunes. Seldom banana, cherry, figs, guava, mango, avocado
skip all frit for 3 days then stop avacado, pinneapple, plum, prunes, cherry, guava and mango for another week. and tell me how you fell. for one week! keep what fruit is left to a SMALL handfull.
Spices: Sea salt, Fenugreek, Turmeric, Cayenne, sometimes choc 85%
stop the choc for a week!
Tea: Peppermint Rosehip..
water 6x 8 oz in tea or plain.
spread the water out evenly over a day and have a bit more if you like. skip the peppermint and rose hip tea for a week. do plainold green tea - it's only a week. to see how you fell.
Honestly this is it...
I discovered that I am really not feeling water for liquid.. that is why I choose some other foods.. or fruit..
water is your friend - if you are still thirsty drink more. the carbs are making you thirsty don't blame the water! (oxo)
DOES anyone else have the feeling that water does nothing for thirst?? My brain is wierd that way. I don't really feel thirst .,.. I look for food instead to chew or swallow or whatever..
NOW I am not learing after some foods.. I eat enough all day.. but I needed to find ways to take away the loss by finding some other thing to satisfy..like anything that would make me feel like I had coffee flavor or creamy stuff.. not with sugar just the familiar texture..
I no longer look for sweet stuff.. (other than when I am out) Small frozen fruit pieces help a lot in portion and amount..
the fruit is obvoilsy not helping you bare with me and try as above for a week and see.
I used to (years ago) eat 8-10 oz a meal, and many walnuts.. and I lost weight when I did that.. but I have cut to be more like 4 oz.. and less nuts more seeds..
I eat enough veggies.. and I do eat some fruit but it is now less of a fight.. much less.. like .5 -1 oz several time a day.. drinking more water does not help..
drink the water before you east say 20 mins if possible. not during or after for an hour or more.
By the way I have been eating like this for years and years.. and am ok with it.. even my friends know I cook only these things for them also.. and serve mostly pineapple or blueberries with cherri juice sauce.. care to come for dinner?? I am imaginative so I don't get bored..
PC I agree maybe not enough oil.. but I dont know how to add it, as I don't like the flavor to much..
You are much more adventuroues with the foods you eat.. I am just not able to go off BTD.. but I like it as listed above.. (I went of to Gatherer foods for a previous year and blew a hole in my sugar issues..I am sure that others do well with it - but for me it did not ) the above Super and Ben BTD suits me well..
i don't go of swami at all by the way. i read page 54 - left a message re that somewhere.
PC did you read page 54?? ,,,,,,,,,,,,,gosh my whole life here.. Hhahaha
Quoted from ABJoe
This whole post is phenomenal, but I really liked this line from you PT...
Quoted from ABJoeThat said, I think some people have health issues that the sugars in the fruit are making them aware of, that are subdued when they don't eat them...
