Thank you for checking out Carbaholics Anonymous site again. Everyone always ask what foods should I eat, and what foods shouldn’t I eat. Reminds me what my father told me a while back. He said son “if it tastes good, spit it out”. Lets be honest, that is true some of the time. Good carbohydrates taste just as good as the bad ones. We all have to remember our bodies are machines. They need the right fuel to perform well. You are what you eat…. If you put bad food in, you will damage your body, if you put healthy food in, that will help build your body.
First of all, I have never seen a person get overweight because he ate to many vegetables. When I make up my plate, I always put more vegetables then anything else. Lean meats are a good source of protein and low on the carbs too. We like to eat fish, which is easy for your body to digest, and it doesn’t give you that bloated feeling. Every so often you will need to eat a steak or chicken, and try to stay around a 4 to 6 oz portions. Portion control has always been a issue for me personally, but it is something that we have to do. Egg are always another good source of protein too. There are times when I will bowl a dozen hard boiled eggs and keep them in the refrigerator, and eat them for snacks. Fruits are also a good source of natural good carbs vs bad carbs like potato chips, or ice cream. I also recommend about a fist full of nuts like unsalted Almonds. lt is another great snack that grows on you. Healthy oils like olive oil, or coconut oil, and maybe even non-gluten grains too.
