Having eaten a ton of sugar in my two weekend trips to New York City in August and early September, I’m more concerned than usual about my blood sugar levels. So I recently posted about unexpected ways your blood sugar can rise and today I’m posting this 7-day no-added-sugar diet plan from Eatingwell.com.
The plan is based on the Mediterranean Diet, which doctors and nutritionists generally is the best to follow for those concerned about their health.
I have to say, though, the portions seem a bit sparse for me. There are tips for increasing daily calorie intake to 2,000 but those are just reminders how little 2,000 calories a day really is for someone with a mammoth appetite like me.
I only half jokingly say my nutritionist’s eating advice for me has been that the only way to stay alive is to slowly starve myself to death.
There are also a lot of items here, nuts, peanut butter, sweet potatoes, that I don’t eat. But hopefully you’ll find more to love in this meal plan than I do.
