Last week, I read a fine article about some athletes, who came up with another view, about they way they were eating. They participated in marathons and tri-Athlons.
The basic rule in these types of sports is to bulk up on carbs. Especially the few days, before their events. Still, they had weight problems and could not lose extra pounds. They tried different diet plans, to no avail. So they started a basic Diabetes diet, hi protein, very low carbohydrate and higher fat content. When we think of fat content in our diet, we immediately think that the fat we eat, goes right on our bodies. Not true, our bodies need Fat, to work.
I have been trying to live a plant-based diet a.k.a. , vegetarian. It looks like it is not working as I thought. So over the next two or three weeks, I will be changing to a typical Hi-Protein-High Fat and very very low carbohydrate diet. Here is my first meal using a Pork Loin Roast. Pork loin is fairly lean meat, with some fat, Please do not trim all the fat away.
Pork Loin Roast with Steamed Broccoli
Pork Loin Roast (size will depend on how many people will be eating this) Serving size is about 4 ounces per person.
Broccoli flowerets Serving size –1 to 1 and 1/2 cups per person.
Pork loin roast recipe is quick and easy to prepare. They cook quickly, so having a meat thermometer is essential. Roast them, in oven, at 350 degrees. When thermometer reaches 150 degrees it is fine. Leaving it to rest for 5 minutes will raise temperature approx. 5 degrees. Overcooking will result in a dry roast.
Steam Broccoli till tender and keep small stalks, as they contain good roughage. Add a little vinegar and olive oil dressing or a few small pats of butter.

You can always substitute another vegetable to taste, but try to avoid Carrots or Beets, which have high sugar content. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
