Do Not Eat!

I am constantly working on and refining the 'do not eat list.' I also have a do eat list which consists of foods which seem to aide or help me in my quest for a healthy body weight and physical fitness. My do not eat list is foods that put weight on my body. Seeing the cause in my journal and the effect on my bathroom scale helps me zero in on the culprit or to be honest with myself about what I'm eating. When you have a list you really can't lie to yourself. You know what to eat and what not to eat. Do keep in mind that physical activity, medications, and stress level can also effect the scale. Watch all your factors for a more comprehensive and reasoned approach to your personalized diet. The truth is that once you know what your eating and when you are or are not losing weight, everything becomes very clear. Thats why I really like the daily weigh in, it helps me know what is going on and when to correct it.

My current lists:

Do Eat:
Fats: Coconut oil, olive oil,
Fresh vegetables: leafy greens, cruciferous,
Fresh fruits: berries, avocado, squash
Chicken, pork, or beef
Chicken broth organic, low sodium.
De-caf herbal tea

Do not eat:
nuts (sigh how I love thee, let me count the ways!)
balsamic vinegar
pickled foods
ice cream (any kind!)
snacks that come in a bag (a la chips)
processed food

Good Blog!
Your diet looks paleo to me, same as mine. I also eat dairy and nuts,though.
Have you checked "Marks Daily Apple"? Lots of good diet stuff there.If I really feel the need to lose weight in a hurry, it's nothing but eggs and sardines for a few days.Sounds gross but works like magic.
