Good and Bad foods.

Good and bad foods are always going to be debatable. Some are worse than others and some wont effect one person while having a substantial effect on others. Good foods in general carry a low glycemic rating, meaning they dont illicit much of a response from the body in terms of insulin secretion. And to be a good food there will be minimal if any preservatives, dyes, basically just anythingthat man has added thats bad boogie. And of course organic is better than non-organic for obvious reason. If you can afford organic go organic.


This list is by no means definative and I will try to add to is as we go and feel free to post and add foods and I'll add them to the list.

Good Fats:
Olive Oil
Flax Seed
Wheat Germ
Almonds
Unsweetened peanut butter
Fish based fats

Bad Fats:
Modified fats (you hear it eveyrday trans fatty acids)
Beef/Poultry based fats (including milk based)

Good Carbs:
Whole Grains
Red Potatoes
Green Vegetables
Fruits
Brown Rice
Beans

Bad Carbs:
Anything that has been refined or manufactured

Bad Protein:
Fatty red meat
Chicken with Skin
Processed meats
Salty Deli Meats
Suasages

Good Protein:
Soy based
Lean red meat
Chicken
Fish
Beans (included in carbs as well I know)

Foods I believe aren't bad but should be limited:
Pastas
Dairy products
Crustaceans, Its hard to beat fresh grilled shrimp in terms of lean protein but just be careful where you get your crustaceans. if you have a good trusted source have at it but if you get itfrom the normal super market be careful.

Stone,
Please convey opinion on non-fat/organic dairy profiles.

I only eat/drink the forementioned. I do eat whole butter but very rarely.
thanks

As a good rule of thumb stay away from non-fat or low-fat anything. This is especially true with dairy. These are generally over-processed foods with fractionalized protiens which are much worse for you than the fat ever was.

Your best on dairy is non-pasturized (very difficult to find depending on state), non-homogenized (much easier to find but sometimes must go to coop or whole foods) with a label stating grass fed.

There is a new study that has people gaining weight on the non-fat, low-fat dairy compared to whole dairy.

You can find very interesting information on dairy at http://www.westonaprice.org/splash_2.htm

If you can find whole, unpasturized, grass fed butter....it is considered a "super food" and is quite amazing.

A couple of notes on your list...with my .02


Good Fats:
Olive Oil
Flax Seed
Wheat Germ
Almonds - Only un-roasted (roasting turns these into a strong negative)
Unsweetened peanut butter - Peanuts can contain mold and legumes (beans...and peanuts included) interfere with your uptake of protien.
Fish based fats (not farmed raised - these fish are fed soy and in turn do not have the levels of Omega 3s of natural fish. Farmed fish can also be contaminated with high levels of antibiotics and anti-parasitic medications from raising them in such close quarters...on a bad diet)

Bad Fats:
Modified fats (you hear it eveyrday trans fatty acids)

Not Bad Fats:
Beef/Poultry based fats - Actually good fats if they are free range or grass fed - they will then contain higher amounts of the omega 3s which are so hard to get.
(including milk based)
Homogonized dairy fractionalizes fats turning them dangerous. Unhomogonized dairy still okay.

Good Carbs:
Whole Grains
Red Potatoes
Green Vegetables - Dark leafy greens....exceptional
Fruits
Brown Rice
Beans (like above, beans interfere with protien uptake in the gut)

Bad Carbs:
Anything that has been refined or manufactured
Anything with added sugar especially including CORN SYRUP

Bad Protein:
Fatty red meat (good if grass fed or free range)
Chicken with Skin
Processed meats
Fermented/cured meats
Salty Deli Meats
Sausages

Good Protein:
Soy based (ONLY fermented soy like tempeh)
Lean red meat (free range or grass fed)
Chicken (free range or grass fed)
Fish (wild caught only)
Beans (included in carbs as well I know)

Foods I believe aren't bad but should be limited:
Pastas (The worst possible - completely refined flour and sugar....impossible for your body to process that many carbs at one time. I know...it tastes so good)
Dairy products (non-homogenized grass fed okay)
Crustaceans, Its hard to beat fresh grilled shrimp in terms of lean protein but just be careful where you get your crustaceans. if you have a good trusted source have at it but if you get itfrom the normal super market be careful.

www.mercola.com is a good onlinesource for diet information. The cookbook Nourishing Traditions by Sandy Fallon....great food, great for you
