As you can see it’s nothing too dramatic. We’re not too concerned about calories, but mainly the quality of food we eat when we’re hungry. The main thing to take from this is we avoid refined sugar, wheat and make up our calories with good quality fats. If you’re trying to make a start on eating healthier and losing some weight just start by cutting out sugar for a week, then start getting rid of the wheat the week after that, you’l be amazed at how quickly start feeling better and losing weight. Or even better and go back and take a look at our old blogs on Ketogenic Eating, and the 30 Day Slow Carb Challenge. Or even better book in for a session where we can take you through it
