I must review and reverse some of the things I’ve discovered about how I am choosing to Taste as a lifestyle. Previously I mentioned that I had used the South Beach Diet book starting three years ago and for a while after my son was born. I’ve found now that we as a family are eating kosher and as well my desire to start eating more whole foods, in a bit of a new style of enjoying the fruits of the earth; I have to reverse my claims to the South Beach diet as a lifestyle and it’s effectiveness. Due to the nature of the artificial sweeteners, artificial butter, and unclean animal consumption encouraged, I no longer find this diet to be within my moral or tasteful desire. It did work initially to shed the weight I was uncomfortable with, however it did not last. As we changed our way of eating to gradually removing unclean animals and artificial food from our habits, the weight and the guilt came right back. I do not think this is due to eating real butter rather than margarine, but rather that the diet was just that, a diet. Not a long-term solution. It was as they say a yo-yo, resulting in my weight only dropping when ever I went back to the limited phase 1. Now that being said, please do not right me off just yet. I am not saying that the diet did not have good principles… I learned a great deal from the doctor about how food works in my body, and that sugar consumption is out of control due to added sugar in 3 quarters of the items sold in a typical grocer. I have adopted his principles concerning looking at sugar and when to eat it as a lifestyle. I did take some helpful and effective information from the teaching. I have simply found that my own preferences for eating whole natural food, and clean animals does not work in conjunction with the diet. So I must not recommend it to anyone else looking for a long-term solution and you who like real butter and real natural sweeteners.
As for new ventures in the book world and foodie lifestyle, I am still currently reading the Great Physicians Rx By Jordan Rubin and liking it so far a great deal. Also, I’ve read the wonderful book by
Mireille Guiliano – French women don’t get fat.
It was entertaining as well as inspiring. This book I do recommend to you.
Happy Reading Fellow Tasteful life lovers
