Look At The Integrity Of Calories Not The Number
"Counting calories is a distraction that could lead you down a path of artificial sweeteners and preservatives---the absolute worst stuff for your body. Instead, think about eating clean food, close to nature and dense with nutrients. Pay attention to the source of your calories rather than the number. (A hundred calories from kale are much better for you than a hundred calories from the vending machines,)"

I'm feeling somewhat lazy today, so I was excited to be able to participate in a blog from an excerpt of Dr. Lipman's book, "The New Health Rules", that is simple, straightforward, and not controversial!
What Pam knows for sure: Eat good quality whole foods and you will never have to count calories again!
What Pam Proposes: Throw away 100 calorie snack packs that have zero nutrition, and make up some of your own. Some examples are mixed granola packs with whole grains and a few nuts, cut up veggies, hummus and mary's gone crackers, organic rolled up deli turkey and baby tomatoes, chicken, celery, green onion and green olives. Choose one and start eliminating poor nutrition today!
