The Naturally Low Fat Diet
My Diet Type is definitely a Monkey. I have tendencies toward and have to work hard not to get overheated when the outside temperatures rise above 60 degrees F.
Discovering that you need to give up some of your favorite foods after doing Diet Typing maybe hard to swallow. Food is such a passionate thing â€“ it involves emotions, socialization, and comfort. Who wants to give that up?
As Monkeys, you need to be eating a naturally lowerdiet. If you are someone who likes to eat a lot of foods that tend to be higher in , such as cheeses or other products for example, you may have a hard time giving those up. It is important to realize the benefit in not eating those foods. Realize that when you can give them up, you will feel better – now thatâ€™s such a motivation!
I know that if I eat a lot of, or meat for that matter, I will feel sluggish, , constipated, and hot. Who wants to feel like that?
Here are some tips to help you avoid the higher fat andfoods, but not compromise taste and nutrition:
We donâ€™t recommend low fat or fat free cheese for obvious reasons (if you donâ€™t know â€“ TASTE and QUALITY), not to mention the chemicals! Have some of that delicious Gorgonzola or Asiago cheese, just go lightly on the amounts.
Monkeys are allowed somein their diets, but they canâ€™t go overboard. And it is not hard to do that with cheese! Just a little sprinkle over your potatoes or tends to go a long way with just a small amount.
Milk is where you want to go low fat. Monkeys will do best on 1% or even Skim Milk. Just remember to keep the servings sizes small. Three 10 ounce glasses of milk per day is too much. Use milk as an additive, adding it to your wholecereal or your coffee or tea. If you also want a little cheese, youâ€™ll need to save up! What about Calcium? Try getting as much as you can from dark greens. But if you are deficient, as many Monkeys are, take a good Cal-Mag supplement.
A lot of people find that dairy foods make great snacks. Things like, cottage cheese, and string cheese are common between meal foods. They are quick and easy. All of these foods can be purchased in different varieties, and the Monkeys will do well to stick with low fat varieties. But again, remember, the quantities â€“ as we have said in our emails in the past, the Monkey Diet can easily turn into a cheese pizza diet. Monkeys need and complex ! Fill up on those! I personally keep a variety of fresh , , and plain low fat (I love Greek style) in my mini-fridge at the office. I keep a little baggie of an herb mix so I can whip up a little veggie dip, as well as a little honey to whip up a dip at a momentâ€™s notice! Yeah, crazy, but it helps keep me on track! Do what it takes â€“ youâ€™re body will be happy you did!
