It's challenging to overhaul the eating habits of the entire family even just for one week. But you need to begin somewhere or else it will be more difficult to teach the little kids about healthy foods. You will never go wrong with fruits and veggies.
The reason for the rise in obesity in America probably isn't in the "quinoa and tofu eaters splurging on a glass of red wine with dinner" set.
If you really want to write an article that might actually help someone, use items that the average person facing this challenge might have access to. It's pretty hard to find steel cut oats in some corner convenience store in Detroit but they might be able to find "old fashion oats". Maybe it's not as good of a whole grain but it's better than fruit loops. Explain the differences between the different levels of ground beef and make a good case to some Midwestern suburban blue-collar family why they should buy the one marked "96% lean" and some tips on how to prepare that so that it doesn't turn out dry and tough. You can buy cheap dried lentils in any inner-city Hispanic grocery and most take foods stamps. Lentils are great and an easy to cook protein source if only more people knew how.
The real way to address the "obesity epidemic" is focusing on bottom level basics. Writing articles for the tofu crowd is just preaching to the choir.
Try adding seasonally fresh vegetables to your diet. It is a great way to add nutrition and get the kids involved! http://ntfactor.com/blog/
The food was changed in the USA, UK and Australia 30 years ago when dangerous food chemicals from the USA was allowed into Europe. The food today causes stubborn insulin If you have stubborn insulin you hold fat and have a hard time losing weight. You can eat very little and the weight still does not come off. Stubborn insulin will hold fat and diets won’t work. When researchers used a specialized diabetes diet on overweight people all lost weight even those who did not have diabetes.
just google SPIRIT HAPPY DIET
I believe that the only diet that really works is the one
that each individual creates for her/himself. I lost 10 pounds in two weeks
with a diet I devised for myself. It included two treats a day, which I eat in
the evening when I would otherwise tend to break my diet and overeat. At lunch,
when I am at work, I usually eat protein and vegetables. I am gradually losing weight and overcoming
my craving for sweet things. I recommend the recipes on the website: http://www.naturally-up-to.com...
