How the Last 6 weeks are Different from the First 6 weeks of BLC

Sunday, November 29, 2015

The first 6 weeks I worked on fiber and protein. As I learned the right foods to eat it became easier to reach the amounts I needed. Vegetables, nuts, lentils and Peanut butter are some foods high in Protein and fiber.
The last 6 weeks I am working on adding more fish, lean meats, poultry, eggs, cheese and milk. It is easy to fall back into bad habits so I keep a list posted so I am getting the protein and fiber I need. Some days it is hard to balance both of them.

    I just found out that I can consider lentils a vegetable. That will make it easier for me to get enough vegetables each day! Legumes are both a vegetable and a protein! They're incomplete proteins, which mean they need paired with something else, either grains or nuts or seeds. I'm a vegetarian. I'm trying to make myself a list of three fruits and six vegetables that I can eat each day, without getting bored. So that's why it's such good news that lentils are a vegetable, since I need it anyway, being a vegetarian. One cup lentils is a serving.

    Thank you for your greeting. I like the idea of posting a list on the fridge. Having it as a standard shopping list where you could circle the items you need might help, too.

    I am back to counting calories. I had too much trouble with low carb, but I hope this will make a difference
