Very interesting approach. And I agree that we should be eating for health, not just lower weight.

With the exception of the cereals and whole grains, it reads very similar to Paleo. Part of the Paleo approach is to cut down on inflammation. I will say that since I started following it more seriously, the pain in my left foot from plantar fasciitis, which had been dogging me since I healed from the stress fracture is greatly reduced. I was quite surprised and pleased when I got up this weekend and discovreed that my first few steps didn't hurt!

Recently, we've upped our fish consumption to at lest once a week, and we've added red, yellow and orange bell peppers to pretty much every dinner, either sauteed with onions, or just sliced and served on their own. Kale has also become a staple in our house.

No one has it all 100%, I firmly believe that you have to find the plan that works best for you as an individual. I have friends who do Atkins and South Beach and swear by them. One hardcore SB friend hasn't eaten a piece of bread since 2006! I don't have quite that much willpower ;0)

I know other people who eat vegan and run 5Ks.

Currently, I am studiously avoiding bread, starches and cereal grains. The mantra is pretty much "If it's white, avoid it" My energy levels are up and I'm due to go in for another measuring session at the end of the month. I think my trainer will be pleased with the progress. I go in for a yearly check up in November and fully expect to blow the Dr. away with my numbers :0)
