Yes.” I didn’t understand why you could be on a diet and not eat peanut butter for the same duration of time.
What about coconut oil? Doesn’t it have a high glycemic index?
I was surprised not the more you said about coconut oil because it’s high in Omega-6 and saturated, but I knew that already. It’s high in dietary fiber, protein, and the antioxidant polyphenolic compounds found only in high-quality dark leafy vegetables. I learned that because it comes from the South, it’s fermented. In order to get the high polyphenolic content and low Glycemic index value, you need to consume very few calories, which are mainly in fruits and vegetables and in a small amount of seeds and legumes like peanuts. As someone who’s lost, I’m really grateful for that.
The fact that it’s processed food and processed food in general has been associated with weight gain is important, but it’s even worse when it’s processed by manufacturers that just add sugar and sugar substitutes to their new products. Because sugar is absorbed by the bloodstream immediately, even the first serving of it after consumption is considered a “free meal,” so it takes only a few small sips to consume as many calories as it would take to fuel a normal meal.
Is it really hard to change your eating habits, especially on an extreme diet plan?
No, it’s very easy! On this program, I’m on a five-day, four-day, two-day diet and I never eat anything but whole grains with no additives, no sweeteners or anything else. In other words, the food is not processed and is made solely from whole foods, just so it doesn’t contain artificial ingredients. I’m also on a very low-carbohydrate diet, which means I have a maximum intake of 50 grams of carbons/day! I’m on a very intense exercise program and I also keep up to three servings of whole grain a day. The combination is really easy to change my eating habits and not only to lose weight, but also to have great health.
It sounds like most people are not able to change their eating habits and that’s the biggest problem in America today: people aren’t able to just choose healthier foods that are naturally available in their food systems, but also that just because they have access to that particular food doesn’t automatically mean it’s healthy. Are you one of those people who thinks that whole grains are actually worse than refined-
