Twizzlers!!!I was recently told that to lose weight permanently I would have to permanently give up flour (white flour that is) and ALL sugar – regardless of the color.
I thought to myself, there’s no way I can do that. For a person who doesn’t particularly like fruit and vegetables, what else could I eat if I gave up flour and sugar???

The thought behind this, I believe is that flour and sugar to the ‘over-eater’ is akin to alcohol to the ‘alcoholic’.
It does make sense when I think about it. Unlike the alcoholic, I can’t NOT ever have ‘another drink’. I have to eat to live (I know, I don’t have to live to eat). But, if I were to permanently stay away from the foods that I absolutely love, which, by the way, ALL contain vast amounts of flour and/or sugar.
But, can I survive only eating foods that don’t have those two ingredients?

That thought took me back to the Mediterranean diet – that was the ‘lifestyle’ I most loved over all these years of trying to lose weight, get healthy and stick with it!

There were a vast assortment of foods that I thoroughly enjoyed back in my Mediterranean days….
Fresh tomatoes
olives
olive oil
salmon, tilapia, tuna
whole wheat breads, bagels
hummus
brown rice cakes
salads
veggie burgers
and so much more…
