OF THE THREE major macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats), dietary fat is the least likely to stimulate insulin. Thus, dietary fat is not inherently fattening, but potentially protective.

Wow, you mean that fats really aren’t fattening? I have actually known this for several years after listening to Jimmy Moores podcast “The Livin’ La Vida Low Carb Show”. Yes, good healthy fats like the one’s found in virgin olive oil, coconut, avocados and dairy really are good for you along with a whole host of others.
Again I will be working on eating my salads with just olive oil and balsamic again. I will start bringing fish like salmon back into my diet and make a can of sardines an alternative for lunch.
Yesterday I ended up eating healthy Tai food for lunch, but like all take out meals I am sure that with all of the good vegetables the meal contained the sauce was probably laced with sugar. The white rice was probably not so healthy either. At dinner I grilled some burgers and made mashed potato’s and spinach. Burgers I just eat on a plate with no bread and the one I had was delicious but I probably could have replaced the mashed potato’s with a salad. And of course spinach is always a healthy choice.
I lifted light weights yesterday morning and skipped breakfast. By lunch time I was starving. This is probably why I ended up eat Tai food. It is tough skipping breakfast after a workout and I will be thinking about eating a small breakfast on the days that I am working out.
After this small mess of a day where I had some small drawbacks I end up little heavier and see that my blood glucose this morning has risen some.
All of these small steps I am taking are all just a small part of developing a sound whole food diet that will work for me and putting together a workout schedule that works in this realistic world I live in. To all questions we ask ourselves there is always answers to be learned through self discovery.
