A friend of mine was having trouble loosing weight, yep the same old story. Count the calories, reduce the plate size, do more exercise and still nothing really happening.
So we looked at how it was done in the olden days. And that was very different. It basically boiled down to reducing certain food types, namely sugar, bread, biscuits, cake, chocolate etc. We saw the connection, sugar and carbohydrates. My friend hunted out some books from the library, on of which was the Real Food Revolution by Prof Tim Noakes, which is based on the finding of Dr Banting.
She starting on this lifestyle choice and lost 20kg in 9 months without extra exercise or plate size reduction!
I will be going into more detail in another post and referencing some science to back this up.
If you want to feed you body the propper stuff for healthy living, my suggestion is to go onto the Banting diet, do your research and enjoy life. The minimum you could do is to cut out all the processed food that's on the market and reduce/stop your sugar intake.
More later - eat well 🙂
