Low GI Diet

For the past few years, I have been battling a medical condition.  Little did I know, that this condition also messed with my weight, a lot.  I kept going to the doctor, and I finally figured out what was wrong.  My body does not process sugar and carbs properly, thus it stores it as fat.  Sucks right?  The solution was go on a Low GI diet, so my body not only stays fuller, longer, but so I eat the foods that are good for me.  I had no idea that many of the foods I ate were so bad for me.  Again, I say bad for me, because they aren't bad for everyone.  I went to a nutritionist to see if I was on the right track, and I was.  Sigh of relief.  My best results was when I did Seattle Sutton for 2 months.  I lost so much weight, I was not hungry, and I worked out all the time.  It was awesome.  Definitely worked for me.  Now, I am in the North East, with no Seattle Sutton in sight, so back to cooking and trying my hardest with this Low GI Diet.  The best part of the Seattle Sutton diet was that it was pre-packaged, amazing food.  I can't say enough good things about it, and no, they are not paying me for saying this. 

Many of the recipes I post on my blog are good for a Low GI diet.  I do eat a lot of "carbs", but they are good carbs.   You can look at this link to take a look at the foods that you should and shouldn't eat on a low GI diet.  It honestly takes a lot of planning at the grocery store, and in making my meal lists for the week.  I have realized that planning in advance helps me really stick to this.  This way I am not running out for fast food, etc.  I honestly don't even know where to get fast food in Newport, and that is a good thing. 

I hope to post more about the Low GI Diet as I post more recipes, and document more weight loss success.
