I eat what I want, but watch what I eat...which means, since I'm borderline Hypoglycemic (I fluctuate to normal as the seasons get colder due to less energy use) I have to stay off the Slurpees and bags of Skittles and Nerds I was accustomed to eating daily as a kid. I was raised drinking atleast 3 cans of soda per day! I KNOW!
Now, I'm a chef, cook at home, cook healthy foods with little or no cream, I use 1 tbs. sugar and Whole Milk in my 2.5 cups of coffee. I can't stand Stevia or Nutrasweet stuff. I use butter and eggs as a source of Protein/Fat to keep the blood sugar up, and eat smaller portions for dinner (one bowl of spaghetti instead of two). An 8 oz. portion of Red Meat 1-2 times per week, Poultry once a week, seafood three times a week, and atleast one vegetarian dinner. My breakfast is usually a bagel or 2 eggs (poached or scrambled) or rarely a bowl of cereal.
Lunch is lite, maybe a Sammy, or leftovers.
Being a chef, I make stocks and render fat (not bacon unless I'm making clam chowder or Coq Au Vin) on a weekly basis. I use chicken Schmultz and Duck Fat on occassion But mainly stick to good clean EVOO. And I drink about 30 oz. of juice and 30 oz. water.
I don't care for pasta that much, or potatoes but we eat them about once a week. I like rice if I'm eating a starch, but try to just eat protein and veg for dinner more often, as starches obviously jack my blood sugar up, which, if eaten for dinner, make me feel weak, shaky and grumpy in the morning. If I feel the need to still eat after dinner, I have a bowl of icecream or popcorn.
We eat a ton of veggies in my house and I love fruit!
I love a glass of wine or a beer with dinner, so about 4 times a week.
