    Well done on your eating shanandboc.

    Thanks for explaining! I make my food from scratch, so consume next to no numbers, but I do love my carbs and have the bad habit of baking occasionally!

    Sensible eating. Just thought I'd check if there were any strange rules, but it seems sensible enough to me. Very similar to having a diabetic diet when I had GD.

    Thanks again.

    I should get onto it and try to shift these last few kilos

    It doesn't mean no carbs at all. It means no processed carbs (e.g. white flour). It means plenty of fruit & vegetables (which contain carbs), meat & seafood and some whole grains. No sugar, no processed food. The old "don't eat anything your great-grandparents wouldn't recognise as food" rule.

    Absolutely. Thats a good saying!! Although carbs are seen as s bit of a sin (bread and rice) I dont see why as long as ur not eating heaps of it and its not processed. We do need it for energy. And yes fruit and veg do contain carbs too.

    Good cereals play their role too for me anyway.....im addicted to all bran atm

    The old food pyramid is pretty close to the mark. Although not so much breads and cereals etc.

    Actually I think the food pyramid is way off the mark - it is way too grain heavy. I had a lot of success by following a Paelo way of eating. Well, mostly. I wasn't too strict. But ate grains in minimal amounts really, and got my carbs from fruit & veggies, ate lots of meat & seafood, no sugar and no drinking during the week. I lost 18kg doing that (and being quite dedicated about exercising at the time). I've slacked off & put it back on, although I think major abdominal surgery and now IVF have probably contributed too, to cut myself a break! haha

    I love baking but you still can! Just not with white flour. I use whole wheat flour and the other night I made these amazing pineapple and coconut muffins which is sweetened with honey instead of sugar. DH thought they were AMAZING! Goodgle the gracious pantry .. it tells you all about clean eating and has amazing recipes!

    Yes, I think your food sounds great! I just meant I don't agree with the food pyramid encouraging people to eat so many serves of grains a day.

    Oh i know...Agreed! But seeing those types of foods as 'bad' is way off too imo. Its all about balance hey!
