I’ve reviewed the book Body for Life for Women in the reviews section today.
Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP gives sound advice: to control your portions and eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.
She is quoted: “You’re talking 15 almonds, 20 peanuts, or 12 walnut halves.”
A sample day’s meal plan includes 2 light string cheese sticks and 1 medium apple as an a.m. or p.m. meal.
You can have six mini healthful meals throughout the day.
This is the best kind of eating plan. A healthful “snack” counts as one of the six meals.
I’m going to experiment with buying the tuna and salmon in the foil packs. I will report back in here what I think of this option. Bumblebee calls their foil packs “SuperFresh” and I wonder if it is.
My contention is that even if for whatever reason you don’t want to buy organic food, you should be loading up on fruits and vegetables, regardless of whether they’re organic.
I have fallen down in this regard lately. The goal is not to have perfect habits. The goal is to follow your plan 80 percent of the time. This makes sense as a livable option to me.
The goal is to always do your best and to know that your best will change from day to day.
We each of us need to be kind to ourselves and stop chasing perfection, which is an impossible standard to live up to.
80 percent. Something to think about.
