Fine tuning your eating during maintenance will become your priority. Actually our diets can use some fine tuning. That means perhaps moving from dairy to non dairy. It might mean removing wheat. It all depends on your health goals. Carbs are always a problem in dieting and will especially be so when you make it to your maintenance level. This is especially true of processed carbs, because they provided little if any nutrition value. Flour, especially white flour ,is one of those processed foods that provide little value. The problem with carbs is that have no nutrition and the body is not satisfied with what you have eaten and it demands more. It’s the old you can’t just eat one syndrome. If your body isn’t being satisfied with good nutrition, it just demands you feed it more in hopes of getting the needed nutrients needed for healthy living. We have found that to eat something such as a pastry for breakfast, causes the body to crave more pastry or other carbs. It thinks that the more carbs you feed it the better because it is in hopes of getting something satisfying. It is the proverbial slippery slope of dieting that causes failure. If it’s a carb, ask yourself if it is a nutritious carb. Fruits and vegetables lend themselves to more nutrition than Twinkies and pizza. It’s time to rethink the dieting plan.
