Day #75 Progress update.
We have completed ¾ of the 100 day project, we are in the final stretch.
Last week we made a firm commitment to make exercise a priority! Going forward we will do more of the same. Our nutrition will stay the same and we will continue to make daily exercise a priority.
Last weekend, Kristen and I met with some old friends. We were asked questions like “What can you eat?”, “What can’t you eat?”, “How do you know what foods are really healthy?” and “Where do you buy your food?”
We thought people who are reading our blog may have similar questions. With the exception of our “cheat” meals (one day per week) here the answers to commonly asked nutrition questions:
“What can you eat?” We primarily eat vegetables, low glycemic fruits (staying away from bananas, mangos and pineapples), lean animal protein. We also eat nuts, almond butter, organic peanut butter and Ezekiel bread, sparingly.
“What can’t you eat?” We stay away from artificial sweeteners, gluten, dairy and use sugar sparingly.
“How do you know what foods are really healthy?” Always read the ingredients. We do not eat pre-packaged food that include ingredients we cannot pronounce and we rarely buy pre-packaged foods that have more than 5 ingredients. **A fact you may not know, ingredients are listed in order of quantity. If an artificial ingredient or sugar is one of the first ingredients, it is best to leave that item on the shelf. **
“Where do you buy your food?” Healthy food can be very expensive, you may need to shop around. We buy most of our food from the local farmer’s market and Costco.
We also advised our friends to pre-plan and pre-make their meals for the week. We have found that to be the biggest key to our success.
