I think...no, I KNOW, there are TONS of "nutrition experts" who are in the dark ages.  It's like brainwashing, and once you've memorized the food pyramid, you don't have the mental ability to accept proof of other healthy eating  plans. 

What's important is that you can follow your plan and enjoy your food (healthy food, that is).  People love eating Vegan....Macrobiotic.....Caveman....Lactovegitarian....South Beach....Ornish.....Atkins....LDL......if it works for you, then that's what you need to do.  Unfortunately, not everyone discovers their ideal eating plan, and many are frustrated with their choices.

You've probably been led to believe that eating corn, watermelon, bananas and peas is bad because of the rest of the "regular American diet" that most people would eat along with them.  Butter.  Barbecued ribs.  White bread.  Fried chicken.  If you eat refined carbs, you'll produce insulin and turn your excess food to fat.  If you leave out the refined carbs, you can eat more fat.  If you sub the refined carbs for starches like beans, corn and peas, but cut down the fat, you won't be storing fat. 

I responded to an inquiry about LDL on another board, and one member responded that we're only "supposed" to have three servings of fruit a day.  Well, yes, if you're following the federal government's guide and also consuming 8 (eight...ocho.....huit....otto) servings of grains.  Yikes! 

They're in the dark about what works.  All sorts of things work, but not for everyone.  There are dozens of people who have signed up for the LDL board and only posted once.  Why?  Did they try it and not like it?  Did they get tired of beans?  We'll never know.  There are millions of people who will never try LDL because they're happy with South Beach, or Ornish, or Atkins.  But many, many are still searching, and the proof is in how many have joined the board in the last two weeks, since picking up First magazine.  I expect the fruit growers are happy.  (Real Foods ought to send Roger Troy a dividend!)

I guess I'm part of the "medical community"- I'm an RN. I personally don't know any health professionals who would want to share information that is harmful to their patients. Medical advice is based on scientific research, and scientific research often finds what works for the majority of people who were followed. My theory is that each body responds to different foods in its own way, and so what works for one person may not work for another.
Like greenheron said, we must each find what we like and what works for us.
To each his own. :D

Hello.  I am a First magazine newbie here too!  What I am most confused about is digestion.  Most diets tell you to always eat a protein along with a carb.  Yet, books and articles about digestion tell you that combining a protein with a carb in the same meal makes it very difficult for your body to digest those foods together.  I tend to believe that not only unhealthy food, but also improper digestion can lead to disease. 

All I want is for my body to work the way it is supposed to work.  There is no question in my mind regarding how eating whole, unprocessed foods is the best way to go.  I just want to understand why most diets, including LDL, continue to stress that it's perfectly fine to slow down the digestive process. 

Right now I gather that slowing down the digestive process makes your body work harder.  When your body has to work harder, you burn more calories.  Okay.  That's great, and I certainly want to feel full and satisfied until my next meal. 

But, what if my body works even better by eating smaller meals more often?  Wouldn't digesting each meal more easily, by eating smaller quantities of easily digestible food combinations more often, still be making my body work throughout the day? 

Which way gives you the most energy? 

Which way is better for your overall health? 

I understand that everybody's body is different.  But, does that apply to how our digestive system works too?  I am serious here.  I really want to know.

Hi mojo,

Welcome to our message boards.  I'm not a doctor or a dietician or anything like that.  All I know is that I have followed the same plan that made Roger Troy Wilson lose 230 pounds, and I went from a size 10/12 to a size 2, 3, or 4 (depending on the brand,) and I've kept the weight off for five years now.  I don't know exactly why it works, but it works great.  I feel better and more energized than ever before, which is what I need being a busy working mom.  Jump in and give it a try.  You have nothing to lose but excess pounds and sluggishness! 

Best wishes,

Mary

to Mom

My dad is a diabetic and his blood sugar was 130+  depending on the day.  since he has been on the LDL his weight is down to 175lbs.  (from over 210pd)  his BS has stabilized in the 90's and he no longer has to worry about his BS although he continues to check it in the mornings.    i would eat an apple with your banana or an boiled egg in the mornings.

Trip was great.  Dad is down to 175pd and doing good.  Mom and i maintained our weight during the trip.  There were several places that is was nearly impossible to get good food.  But we walked several miles a day.  Hiked in the Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion.  We worked 3 days at Best Friends, now that was some hard work.  I worked in Birds, Pigs, Horses and Dog.  Cleaning, feeding, walking.....

I think if we eat the way it is outlined in the book - a proven way to lower our unhealthy numbers - we don't have to worry or be swayed by those who are just trying to sell a product or book. There will always be someone telling us that the next cure for health is processed margarine ( or whatever the product might be) and then then next year we find out it is unhealthy. How can fruit or vegetables ever be unhealthy? God made them.
