Forget diets—change your lifestyle. Cut out all refined sugar, refined starches, white potatoes, etc. Here’s a guy who offers a Science based approach that really works—without counting calories.
If you’re not interested in going vegan, at least listen to some of his short (3 minutes or less) nutrition videos.
Hope this helps.
Oreo's are vegan.
Up until the 1990s Oreos contained lard—but then Nabisco changed the recipe to make them healthy.
That wasn't a plug.
I'd like to suggest you visit The Weston A. Price Foundation at http://www.westonaprice.org.
Lard is not unhealthy. After decades or error, backed by innumerable food companies, science has finally caught on that saturated fat from animal products is absolutely essential to health and well-being.
I'd also check out Dr. Mercola's site at http://www.mercola.com/nutritionplan/beginner_fats.htm
Here is an excerpt:
A misguided fallacy that persists to this day is the belief that saturated fat will increase your risk of heart attacks. Folks, this is simply another myth that has been harming your health for the last 30 or 40 years. The truth is, healthy saturated fats from high quality minimally processed animal and vegetable sources provide a concentrated source of energy in your diet, and they provide the building blocks for cell membranes and a variety of hormones and hormone like substances.
When you eat saturated fats as part of your meal, they slow down absorption so that you can go longer without feeling hungry. In addition, they act as carriers for important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Dietary fats are also needed for the conversion of carotene to vitamin A, for mineral absorption, and for a host of other biological processes.
Please tell me you didn't just suggest Oreos are healthy?
Witness the inherent idiocy of a system which decries honey, but ooo Oreos...
You mean I can shove my face with Oreos guilt free and in the knowledge I'll live a long and healthy life? Sounds too good to be true...
At least you won't be exploiting the oppressed and voiceless worker bee.
I'd rather stick to honey and not contribute to further bee unemployment..
But, in a world without cruelty, they wouldn't need to work.
Neither would I but then neither me nor the bee would exist. Anyway, I'm going to put it out there and suggest that Oreos cause at least as much suffering in the world as honey.
