As promised here are my before and after pictures. On the left is a shot of me on December 31st, 2013. On the right is a shot of me that I took on March 31st, 2014. I accomplished my goal of getting my health and wellness back!
I feel better than I have in years thanks to eating one NoOodle meal every day and keeping the glycemic level of the foods I eat low. I think the most important tips that I can share with you about making your diet become a way a life are two fold.
1. It's about a balance of carbs, sugars, proteins and fiber.
Every time you make a meal for yourself or your family consider this formula. On the right side add up the proteins and fiber of each serving of food. On the left side add up the carbohydrates and the sugar counts that serving of food contains. If the left side is higher than the right side I get to look like I do in this picture on the left. If I keep the right side ( proteins and fiber) higher than then the carbs and sugars at each meal I will continue to look as I do on the right.
2. It's all about the color!
If you look down at your plate today at lunch and you see one or two colors you know right away it is not good for you. We want our meals to be as colorful as possible. Reds, yellows, greens, purples, the more color, the better.
