been researching/reading a bunch on these topics and i am getting pretty "dazed and confused". eat a lot of meat, eggs,fish,the cleaner the better. i get that. lose the grains and legumes. i get that. lose the diary. i get that,but maybe only kinda in the light of a recent well done post here. lose the nightshades. well,OK. but,then what do you eat for natural scource vitamins/antioxidents? it appears to me that the things left,available commonly and affordably are: carrots;lettuce,greens,spinach (fiber,water and a minimum of vitamins);celery (fiber and water only). berries and fruit-OK love it,but with type 2 DM they have the same effect as a hersey bar. supplement? tried that-expensive and i hate taking 4-12 horse pills a day. whole 30 doesn't mention nightshades and tomatoes are integral to many/most clean recipies (generic,asian,indian) recipies i have reviewed. ok carbs can come from sweet potatoes/yams and squash (hate it). whole 30 doesn't dis nightshades,as far as i know. yea,got to spend the $40 to get the download. got a bunch of questions re whole 30 lifelong stuff i.e. wild rice being evil forever and a few more. yea,buy the download and consider it an induction plan like 1st 2 weeks of atkins. can even supplement fiber. tastes like s--t,but benefits per the research on citrus pectin are stone cold ++. that said,i am really floundering on the vegtable/vitamin/antioxiden natural food issue. any input,experience,knowledge,opinions,ideas,even rants would be greatly appreciated.
No announcement yet.
whole 30 and paleo diet questions,a bunch and not well organized.
