Hi, Ferrenburg. Wild game does not mess up the plan at all – it is indeed counted as a very lean meat. Just select something lean from the Menu Planner, and swap it out at mealtime. The program will be adding the option of game in a future version.

Ossie what about someone who just eats wild game such as moose and caribou. they are very lean would they be along the lines of chicken. I usually call it beef but it is really good for you.

what about not eating all your food does that mess you up on this plan?

Ossie, I am noticing that you are answering everyone’s questions. Are you a dietician?

Hi, Fakhirakhan. Combining protein with carbohydrates and/or fats maximizes metabolism. Among fats, using monounsaturated fats (as are high in olive oil) has also been shown to increase metabolism. Among carbohydrates, complex/high-fiber carbohydrates – especially those with good enzyme activity, such as fresh vegetables and sprouted grains and legumes – maximize potential for metabolism. Most of all, eating when most active (not skipping early meals) while tapering off toward the end of the day has the best effect.

Hi, Fakhirakhan. Homemade bread is usually better than store-bought, but of course, a lot depends on the ingredients – mainly, what sort of flour you use. This program recommends sprouted or 100% whole grain – if that is what you are using, it is fine.
As for the recipes, there are several that are similar to your description, i.e. Fish Curry, Chicken Peanut Pad Thai, Coconut-Stewed Garbanzo and Kale. Most importantly, you can substitute the listed spices in most of the recipes with your own spices – they are very flexible in terms of the combination of flavors.
Spices in general are considered good for the metabolism, as are green leafy vegetables, which you see featured throughout many of the recipes.

Hi, esteslucy2. Yes, 100% whole grain is great.

Avatar of esteslucy2 esteslucy2 1 year ago

When I said whole wheat bread, I should have said, 100% whole grain wheat bread, where the hulk is still on the grain. Is that okay?. Since finding SWG bread is difficult.

Hi, esteslucy2. If you are reading my comment “if it don’t rot don’t eat it”, what was meant is the food needs to be fresh. Not processed. And your question about 100% wheat bread; we know that 100% wheat bread is better than white processed bread. We know SWG bread is better for you than 100% wheat. Ossie is always saying upgrade. The TDC gives you what is best; upgrade from where you are at to the best.

Home grown corn can rot, so can you eat it. What about 100 % whole wheet bread.

Avatar of Ossie Ossie-Sharon 1 year ago

Hi, JustJanet, if you are a big corn lover, see if you can find “sweet corn” – that is very rarely GMO if at all.
