Recently I was sent this question: “Hi there i have been eating lots of fruit and salads and
vegetables Can i cut out bread what can i eat instead? I am trying to cut out meat also I bicycle a lot can you give me a good diet today i had tea and vegetables and brown rice?”
My reply: I have written a few articles that may be of interest to you. First, Good bye MyPyramid….hellow MyPlate, this article helps you plan a healthy day of eating. Second, I’m concerned that you are on the “gluten-free fad”, bread is not your enemy if you do not have Celiac or know for a fact that you have a sensitivity to gluten. It’s the amount and type of bread you eat. I suggest reading, Gluten-Free! Is it a fad? Lastly, regarding protein, Americans get more than enough, there’s no problem there, for more detailed info I suggest, Portein – How much and what’s your source?
Hope this helps, happy reading!
