Episode 119: Food Addiction

Ep: 119 Food Addiction

Today’s episode is a little bit about the book The Pleasure Trap by Douglass Lisle and Alan Goldhamer and I talk about eating food in order of caloric density. Meaning that we would eat your greens first, then your broccoli, then your cauliflower, the your potatoes then your beans. That way we are getting the most nutritious foods first and filling up on the lowest calorie foods before eating our favorites that usually contain more calories per cup or per pound.

We discuss some of the Pleasure Trap, but mostly its and introduction to the book wanting you to get it, read it and study it. I am still reading it myself, hence the introduction.

I also talk about my 30 day challenge of no salt starting tomorrow. I encourage anyone wanting to reset their taste buds to do the same. If you can’t do 30 days, that’s okay, try any amount of time 3 days, a week, a few weeks. The reason we need to do this is to begin the process of really looking at our foods. So that ultimately, we can be healthy in mind body and spirit. And get back to a healthy weight.

Episode 118: Exploring Plant Foods For Better Health

Ep: 118 Exploring Plant Foods For Better Health

In today’s episode we explore Dr. John McDougall’s Book, The Starch Solution. Last week, we looked at SOS which is looking at salt, oil and sugar added to our diets aiming to reduce or eliminate.

This week, we’re exploring starch as a solution to better health. We go over calories in several of the most common starches such as potatoes, rice, lentils, beans and corn. We look at how a person could create satisfaction by adding starch to every meal.

Mcdougal’s suggestion is to have 50 percent of each meal in starch to create satisfaction while consuming the other 50 percent in whole plants such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots etc.

I recommend getting his book and really exploring this way of eating. I also recommend going to his website and exploring his free content Drmcdougall.com

After going over some of his book, I share a faux nacho cheese recipe to put on top of vegetables.

Today’s Episode is all about tracking Salt, Oil and Sugar. I go over how money and food management is of the same vein in that they both require attention, measure and action. Tracking is the first step towards making changes. Those small little changes can become the very secrets to your success.

As much as this step may seem impossible or truly difficult, let’s try together to start looking at what we are doing so that we can add value in all the areas that matter the most.
