Jeff, I gotta lose weight

Answer: Eat the right fats and proteins and kick out the starchy carbs.
Don’t be afraid of fat. Avoid trans fats (partially or fully hydrogenated oils) which are found in processed foods. Get healthy fat from lean proteins (grass-fed beef), wild fish, olives/oil, Sacha Inchi oil, avocados, and nuts.
Avoid starches like grains including corn, potatoes, and rice.
Eat plenty of protein. It won’t raise your blood sugar and helps handle insulin better, build muscle and repair tissue – all essential for staying lean and preventing diabetes. Grass-fed beef, free-range poultry, cage-free eggs, and wild salmon are all good choices.
Eat a lot of vegetables. Those that grow above ground are good choices – cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, mushrooms, green beans, leafy green vegetables, and tomatoes.
Eat fruits such as berries and those you can eat with the skin on. Skip dried fruit and fruit juices (they have added sugar).
Avoid processed foods. They are loaded with bad fats and carbs, artificial sweeteners, and preservatives.
Avoid high fructose corn syrup. It contributes to insulin resistance. Fructose is converted to fat more than other sweeteners. In fact, HFCS has been linked to obesity. And limit natural sweeteners like sugar and honey.
