Sugar is probably par of the problem of obesity. In this video Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin. Watch it and enjoy it!!

PerfectHealthDiet.com Food Plate

Since the goverment of the US introduced the "My Food Plate", there
has been a few trying to come up with their own Food Plates.

Here is one from the perfecthealthdiet.com web site, a site that
promote a healthy diet (not for weight loss) based on a Paleo approach
but permissive in whay they call "safe starches" (rice, potatoes,
sweet potatoes, taro, tapioca).

Their approach is the result od the analysis laid out in their book,
which recommends a "perfect diet" which mimics the diet of Pacific
Islanders known for their longevity.

It is is basically, a high fat diet, moderately protein and low
carbohydrate diet. However, their low carb definition is different
from the low carb movement. For them, Low carb means less than 600 cal
from carbs, which translate to less than 150 g of carbs (of course
from the safe starches).(low carbers think of less than 50 g for a
diet to be called low-carb).

Now is your turn, Leave a comment of their food plate drawing........

Thanks,


Our approach: simplicity. Eat well, Move more, Enjoy Life.....
