Do Calories Count?

Do calories count? I wish I could tell you that they don’t — and that you should just forget all about the pesky things.  Unfortunately, it isn’t so.   Any type of diet or eating plan can be sabotaged by […]

Yellow Light/Red Light Cereals

posted by sbrown

Cereals seem to wander from one category to another more than any food in my various lists.  One reason for that might be that formulas for the cereals often vary from country to country and the bulk of testing has […]

What Does Thin Feel Like?

posted by sbrown

It’s slump time — the dreaded time when our emotions lag behind our wills.  Do I really want to make these changes?  Is it worth it?  Does it matter anyway? Yes!  Don’t listen to the negative voices inside your head.  […]

Yellow Light/Red Light Breads

posted by sbrown

Most of the breads do fall in these categories and should be eaten in small amounts and in moderation, especially if they are a trigger food for you.  Some of the yellow light breads are: barley flour bread some fruit […]

Green Light Meats and Proteins

posted by sbrown

You are probably looking for it — the “King’s X” food.  Is there a food that doesn’t raise your blood sugar?  Well, yes.  Meats, poultry, seafood, and eggs do not have any insulin response.  That’s because of the fat and […]

Green Light Dairy

posted by sbrown

Look both ways as you approach this green light! Most dairy products have a low GI — including yogurt, some puddings, and even ice cream.  They contain both protein and  fat, which slow down digestion so that you don’t have […]

Green Light Cereals

posted by sbrown

Yes, there are some!  However, do NOT believe those stupid commercials that promote Sugar-Coated Sweetie Blasts as healthy “whole grain” food!  I’m not sure what their definition of whole grain is — but those easy-to-digest and calorie-laden foods don’t qualify […]

Green Light Breads

posted by sbrown

“Man cannot live by bread alone — but a woman can.” I identify with that quote!  If there was a healthy bread-only diet, I could stick to it with no problem.  This is  definitely a category that is easily overdone, […]

Green Light Vegetables

posted by sbrown

Well, here is good news!  This is a category of food that is free — or nearly so, especially when you eat them raw.  The fiber makes them hard to digest, so it’s difficult to eat enough to give you […]
