Include liberal amounts of nutritious food from a wide variety of sources.
Avoid ALL sugars, chocolate, honey, molasses, and maple syrup.
Avoid ALL fruits and fruit juices – no dried fruits of any kind.
Try not to eat the same foods every day, rotate.
Feature low carbohydrate vegetables, seafood, lean meats, and eggs. Try to include one serving of high carbohydrate vegetable OR a single portion of a whole grain at each meal.
Focus on fresh, natural and healthy choices. If it came out of a packet, bottle, bag or box it may not be the wisest choice. When you shop at the supermarket, buy the foods on the outside perimeter – these will be the fresh foods like meat and veg. Most of the food in the aisles is full of preservatives, sugars and colors. Buy fruit and vegetables from growers markets or grow my own if possible.
Lean meats and (pseudo-health fad that won’t die) wholegrains? Your suggestions are pretty food pyramidy.
