Good, Better and Best

Postby bob » January 27th, 2011, 11:57 am


I picked this saying up from John Kohler, a guy that sells juicers, in his videos he usually mentions X is good, Y is better and Z would be the best. I like this style of thinking because I feel like it helps me always keep going in the right direction. Lets apply that to the slow carb diet. Please correct me if I am off on any of these recommendations and please add your own.

Sweeteners for Coffee or Tea
    Avoid: Chemical Aritfical Sweetners, Sugar, Milk, Agave Nectar
    Good: Cream because it is lower in lactose
    Better: Xylitol? Stevia Leaf Powder (not extract)
    Best: Cinnamon or No Sweetener
Dairy
    Avoid: Anything with Lactose including yogurt
    Good: Cottage Cheese (last resort) in moderation
    Better: Lactose Free and unsweetened Kefir in moderation
    Best: Only on cheat/binge days
Nut butters
    Avoid: Anything sweetened or anything with one or more non nut ingredients except for salt.
    Good: No more than two tablespoons per day
    Better: A small handful of whole nuts (I am guessing on this) in moderation, no more than once a day.
    Best: Only on cheat/binge days
Fruit
    Avoid: All fruit except for tomatoes and avocados. Remember Fructose is Evil!
    Good: Grapefruit juice to extend effects of caffine.
    Better: Avocados in moderation
    Best: Only on cheat/binge days
Vegetables
    Avoid: Potatoes, Sweet potatoes, Yams, anything else starchy. Anything high in sugar like carrots should be in moderation.
    Good: Eat vegetables
    Better: Eat more vegetables, remember "A 1/2 cup of rice is 300 calories, whereas a 1/2 cup of spinach is 15 calories! "
    Best: Spinach, Asparagus, Peas, Mixed vegetables Green usually means Good.
Breakfast
    Avoid: Carbs! Bread! Bagels!
    Good: Protein and Vegetables
    Better: Scrambled Eggs, Spinach and Beans
    Best: 500ml of water immediately then twenty to thirty minutes later Scrambled Eggs, Spinach and Beans

Grapefruit juice was recommended both because of the glucose-lowering effect of the fructose, as well as the naringenin in grapefruit juice that extends the effect of caffeine.

Regarding blunting glucose ... I believe that Tim said that the Damage Control steps shouldn't be done for more than a day or two, but I haven't been able to find where yet.

Edit: Check that. Here it is.

"Use the techniques in 'Damage Control' for accidental and planned binges. Keep in mind that the techniques in that chapter will help you minimize damage for about 24 hours, not much more."
Weight Lost since January 1, 2011: 14.6 lbs.
