When I first started this blog, I didn't really have a vision. I knew that I wanted to focus on real food, but I hadn't completely researched what real food was to me. One of the biggest things I've found the past couple months, is that those who are trying to eat healthier don't necessarily agree on what that real food is.
There are as many real food diets as there are nasty fake food diets. You can eat primal, raw, vegetarian, vegan. I knew I had to get off the HFCS, MSG, hydrogenated oils, but what I was supposed to eat I wasn't so sure.
I innocently put out a question on Facebook asking for my friends' resources for information on food. I was pointed to Weston A. Price and Nourishing Traditions. I just so happen to be able to start reading Nourishing Traditions (NT). So much of the research and information made sense. What I was reading was supported by many of my friends as well. Apparently, I got on the healthy eating train late.
From NT, I found Eat Fat, Lose Fat (EFLF). As soon as I started reading it, I knew it was what I needed. Between NT & EFLF, all my health problems were described and it told me exactly how I had been eating. It also offered the solutions that made the most sense.
Tomorrow, I will tell you what those solutions are and what 'diet' I have been using to regain my health and lose weight.
