This doco available free to watch for the next week or so. Good dietary advice though the presentation is a bit cheesey.

not bad at all - our forefathers knew what was good for us- it's just the last couple of generations that have given up healthy eating in favor of fashionable eating...

My approach is eat what humans evolved to eat: fish, meat, berries, nuts. Sugar and wheat was added to the diet only in recent years.
The only time I have lost weight was following a low carbohydrate diet.
I am a diabetic and they are still trying to tell us to eat more carbohydrate. I prefer my meat and two veg (ie minus the potato)

That's exactly what this doco promotes except go light on the breakfast's toast and potential added sugar in the baked beans. Same message as Cereal Killers and this week supported by British researchers .

For 20 years i followed the low fat dietary guidelines. I was always borderline overweight, and yoyo'd up and down 5 or 6 kgs, always hungry, obsesive about food and as I got older, started to get low blood sugar drops between meals which caused cold sweats, shakes and irritability.
Then 5 years ago I read a book called Sweet Poison which explained my symptoms. I tried low carb and suddenly things became better. My weight stabilised, I don't get the low blood sugar jitters, I can miss a meal without getting famished and I have plenty of energy. Wiith more research I morphed into Primal/Paleo way of eating which (unlike Atkins) emphasized eating unprocessed foods. Now I eat meat, fish and eggs, plenty of vegetables and a little fruit, fats such as olive oil, coconut oil and butter, and ( because I don't have a problem with it) milk and cheese in moderation. When people ask about the way I eat I say I do JERF - Just Eat Real Food.

We were out the other night, and reading a book about what toxins are in various foods. There were 17 different toxins in canned baby food, what a great start to life !

Weston A Price has a shortlist for that:

www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/abcs-.../dietary-guidelines/

www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/abcs-...ion/dietary-dangers/

isn't it funny how his findings have been vilified for years, and are now proven right, one after the other?

muri, there are about 10 natural chemicals in organic apples that are poisonous in excess. Potatoes are hugely worse because of solanin. If the solanin had been found before potatoes became a staple food, potatoes would have been absolutely banned.
I like meat, and used to be 108 kg ..... which is not good for a T1 diabetic with a heart murmur. By going from a "normal" (whatever that is) diet with meat in it to a high complex carbohydrate diet I lost 25 kg, which made getting fit much easier.
So, what is very important is to keep food intake adequate (whatever that means).

What I find difficult is people who say it's so expensive to eat healthy food.......yet the fork out constantly for processed rubbish...and eat all day....I find 'eating food that remembers where it came from' ....you eat less because you don't have the cravings...its easy to eat just breakfast, lunch and dinner no snacks in between....unless an apple, carrot, apricot. At this time of the year fruit and vege's can be really cheap...dinner tonight is a 30 cent cob of corn with real butter and maybe an egg or a fresh strawberry smoothie..

I have to agree, the easiest time I ever lost weight was by omitting, potatoes, rice and flour. I ate plenty of anything else, normal healthy food and remember never feeling deprived, which helps as that's a killer. :)

I so agree. Since cutting out processed food I can afford to buy better quality food eg organic vegies and better cuts of meat, though often I will end up with cheaper meat because it lends itself long slow delicious cooking!
One of my main drivers in returning to NZ is to be able to grow as much food as I can so that I can be sure that I am getting the freshest organic food possible.

My own description of my diet then, was do not eat anything white. (OK maybe cauliflower was the exception). But it was an easy thing to follow.
