I recently watched a "Dr. Oz" episode in which chef Alton Brown discussed losing 50 lbs and keeping, yes, keeping it off. He then shared 4 list of food he eats or doesn't eat to maintain his weight loss. I thought they were really pretty good suggestions, not, by any means, all inclusive of foods you should eat for ideal health, but very much worth sharing with you. Some suggestions I'd add to his list include, for daily: eggs, prepared any way you like (the absolute perfect protein and great for collagen production for those vain ones out there.) Kefir, yogurt or pro-biotic supplements-absolutely imperative for a strong immune system. Wine, just a small glass daily for your cardiac and mental health! In addition, I'd say most of us only need red meat, the blood meat, only about once every 10 days. White starch, never! and absolutely try to avoid anything packaged and very little of food you don't know exactly where it came from or who has been handling it...guess that means: "EAT AT HOME FROM SCRATCH AS FREQUENTLY AS POSSIBLE!" Just my two cents.
