Exercise is not the issue

Twenty minutes of walking = 100 calories for an average person = one tablespoon of dry roasted nuts. This illustrates how good the body is at balancing our energy needs but also why many of us gain weight with a high consumption of unhealthy carbrohydrates like sugar and fries. Exercise for health, but don’t expect weight loss.

The Paleo diet http://www.marksdailyapple.com would eliminate grains and most dairy products while advocating less high glycemic fruit like bananas or watermellon unless after intense exercise.

Confusing? Just eliminate sugar and refined carbs (white bread, cereal, sugar, flour). Eat fresh veggies (a lot), fish, fowl, and meat and fruit in season.

The World’s Healthiest Foods

127 foods that can serve as the basis of your Healthiest Way of Eating. Links to the articles about these foods can be found below.

Of course, there are many other nutritious foods other than those that we have included on our list that we feel are wonderful, health-promoting foods; if there are other whole foods – such as fruits, vegetables, nuts/seeds, whole grains, etc – that you like, by all means enjoy them. Just because a food is not on our list doesn’t mean that we don’t think that it can be included in a diet geared towards the Healthiest Way of Eating as long as it is a whole, natural, nutrient-rich food.
