I eat almost no carbohydrates, except fruits and vegetables. I still eat the skin of the chicken, because if I'd get too extreme I'd end up craving those very things and then eating them. I'm best off doing what I'm doing. I take sugar in my morning coffee, less than in the past, but it's a daily necessity. I don't believe that 0% and skimmed dairy products are healthy, but I don't eat yellow cheeses which have the most fat. I don't even eat white cheeses besides a very occasionally full-fat cottage cheese.
What's my greatest food craving, besides Hagen Daz Mint which I only eat when visiting America? Fruit, yes, I shouldn't have so much fruit. Now I'm craving the totally irresistible no sugar apple compote I made for Simchat Torah.
- sliced apples (unpeeled)
- natural ginger root, a few slices
- water, not too much
PS I'm hoping to do diet coaching, small groups, individuals, meeting or by phone.
