it was news to me that veggies are a catylist (sp?) for the amino acids. i usually eat protien with each of 4 meals a day, but i generally have a starch with the first 3 and have a big salad and a veggie with dinner. now i’m trying to figure out how to get a veggie into each meal.
Thank goodness, eating really, really healthy is something I’ve already accomplished. It helps tremendously with cravings. I never eat fast food. I eat vegetables (over a pound a day) and 4 oz protein at each of my 3 meals. I eat 2 fruits and one serving of grain a day. I don’t eat processed foods of any kind. I don’t eat sugar or flour either. I keep a daily food log. One tip I have for everyone is to plan your food the day before you eat it. That way you aren’t rooting around your fridge when you are hungry and have a higher chance of making a poor food choice.
