What types of food are you including in your diet. It's very important to eat an all natural diet (no pre-packaged and processed foods) to lose belly fat. Make sure your diet includes whole foods and is balanced with protein, carbs (mostly veggies), and essential fats. Limit your fruits to two a day, and limit your starches to twice per week.

All whole foods are important for a balanced diet. Please read my article, "How to Affordably Eat Well."

Quoting EthanzMom915:

On a tight budget, what foods would you prioritize?

Low carbohydrate diets are low carbohydrate diets, and low fat diets are low fat diets. I promote a healthy balanced diet that includes protein, carbohydrates (veggies, fruits, and starches), and essential fats as your body needs all of them to function optimally. While losing weight, I suggest you limit fruit to 2 per day due to sugar intake. Also, I suggest you limit starches to 2 times per week after a good workout as you will this is the only time your body really needs them. Vegetables are the most nutrient dense carbs.

Quoting LadyNCVE:

What's the difference between Low Carb, Low fat and what you promote?  It is a little of both?

You are correct. It is based on natural whole foods and is a balanced diet with protein, carbohydrates (veggies, fruits, and starches), and essential fats.

Quoting LadyNCVE:

Is the diet you promote safe for the whole family? I have a 2.5 year old and a 5.5 year old.  I try my best to give them whole foods at home.  When they go to grandparents house (both sides) and their dads house, I feel like they are filled with processed foods and sugar.  So I feel like I have to negate they damage they've done when my kids come home.  I'm assuming the health plan you offer is family friendly since it's basically eating natural.  Is that correct?

As I've stated in previous replies, fruits are healthy foods. However, you can get too many sugars from them if eating too many servings. When you are trying to lose weight, you want to limit your fruit intake to two per day. It would also be beneficial to eat low-glycemic fruits like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples, and pears. Orange juice eliminates the fiber from the fruit which raises your blood sugar levels, so I would also eliminate any fruit juices. Instead, include the whole fruit. Vegetables will help you lose more. wink

Is there any way to eat that can help with thyroid problems?  I have had half of my thyroid removed and even though my levels are normal I have almost all of the symptoms of hypothyroidism.  I've also been sent to many a nutritionist that has told me I eat well and am eating what I should I just need to exercise more (I already go to the gym once a day for 2 hours at a time).  I was just wondering if there is any other thing that could maybe help it along.
