I Eat Too Much Fruit and Not Enough Fat

Who knew. Apparently I eat too much fruit. And vegetables.

Last week I downloaded a fitness app on my cellphone and started tracking my food, exercise and water intake. In less than 48 hours several things became very clear.
  • You can eat too much produce.
  • Fruits and vegetables are high in carbohydrates.
  • I don't eat enough fat. (WHAT??)

So, as I begin this journey of really understanding my food, I'm completely blown away. Although I've had a healthy whole foods diet for several years, I never realized I'm not eating foods in healthy proportions. 

That means no more bowls of strawberries for lunch, I guess.

Has a health or fitness program helped guide your nutrition and health progress? I'm all ears! What did you learn? Why do you still use the program?

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  1. Sugar is the new enemy as fat was for the past five decades. New apps are going to reflect the new thinking. I think balance is the answer.

  2. I never thought anyone could eat too much produce. Fruit, ok. But too many veggies? It does sound like an interesting phone app. I hope you will keep us posted on your progress with using it.

    1. I know!!! I was wondering why my carbs kept creeping up even while eating very little bread, pasta or crackers. It's all those veggies. And of course carbs turn into sugars. Now I'm trying to get more healthy fats and proteins into my diet! Updates will be coming along! Thanks for stopping by. ~Angela
