Is Dieting a Four letter Word:  Part 1-

When I talk about what I eat (especially when my children are around), I am very careful to use the word “food plan” instead of the word DIET. 

Growing up in the 70’s where fad diets such as the “Grapefruit Diet” “Sauerkraut Diet”, “Cayenne Pepper Diet” and the huge following of the “Atkins Diet” were mainstream; the word diet implies something wacky and unhealthy.   I learned that these diets that had weird ingredients, or just liquids showed weight loss, but were usually followed by weight-regaining when you began to eat regular food that you ate before.  What sense does it make to be able to eat a 12 ounce steak for breakfast, lunch and dinner with no vegetables?  Is that nutrition?  Can any heart artery accommodate that long term? 

You have to look at food logically (calories, where you personally are in terms of age, and metabolism, and your exercise contribution).  The less steps that go into the creation of what you’re eating, the more pure nutrition there is for your system.  The more balanced your choices are, the better odds your overall nutrition and health will be.

Tomorrow, in part 2, we’ll talk about what to include in your ‘food plan’ and what the positive effects will be for you!
