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 now....to 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 :)
