It's a beautiful Wednesday morning

Good morning everyone, I really enjoyed your comments the other day. It seems most folks don't want to do the bfc because in some ways it goes against everything they thought they knew about healthy eating. People don't like to hear that milk is bad and there are other better sources of calcium, or that too much sugar is as terrible as it is. I've noticed that people are still so obsessed with fat that they are willing to eat low-fat products that are high in sugar. There is good fat such as olive oil, avocados, nuts & seeds, dark chocolate and bad fat, hydrogenated oils, trans fat, excess animal fats. We need the good healthy  fat just as we need good cholesterol.

I've learned that after eating things that are high in sugar and make my tummy ache it takes a couple of days to become regular again even when I am getting lots of fiber in every day. I know it seems like TMI to share that, but it's important to share. When I first started the bfc Jorge said to get extra fiber, but he didn't stress how important it was especially since I wasn't eating the fiber rich fruits and veggies I was used to. Thankfully Rosalie said multiple times on her blog how important fiber was and that most folks need help.

I now put benefiber in my morning coffee, take the super seed beyond fiber and try to get the most bang for my buck with good carbs and veggies. When I get to where I want to be whenever that happens I think I will try to incorporate more fruit into my diet. I miss not being able to eat the fresh fruit that is in season keep from going crazy I plan to have a some every day in much smaller portions than I used to. This morning I had 8 beautiful blackberries with breakfast. Have a great day everyone :)


  1. You are an inspiration:) Fiber is my number 1 issue on this plan, I guess I used to eat enough fat to cancel the need for fiber, or I never really noticed like I do now. I am excited to incorporate grapes and pineapple in small amounts in. That's of course when I get a grip on the weight. They will probably be out of season by then:)

  2. Katie, good for you for making these life changes at your age. I wish I had done this sooner and cut sugar out of my diet. Maybe the last twenty years wouldn't have been such a struggle. When you know better, you do better. Have a great day!

  3. Yeah - It's like, now we know....
    Before, I thought I was doing good by eating diet or low fat stuff. Its funny by just changing some of the things we ate and you lose weight.
    Even if I knew this before, I still might not have done it.
    You have to be ready for this to work.
    Great post - have a great day :--)

  4. Your right, most people don't realize how much sugar and carbs they eat and how it contributes to their belly fat! And how eating good fats is great for our bodies! I used to always eat low fat and could never loose the extra 10-15 soon as I started eating BFC I dropped the weight (very slowly, but it worked!) AND I feel better too! Yahoo! Have a wonderful week!
