For the Love of Food

Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup. 

A quick heads up that starting next week I’ll be traveling until early March (Kevin is turning 40!), so I won’t be posting Friday links. The podcast will continue as normal.

Next week’s Mindful Meal Challenge will start again on Monday. Sign up now to join us!

This week why big goals lead to failure, how friends sabotage your health, and why vegetables are the best path to weight loss. 

Too busy to read them all? Try this awesome free speed reading app to read at 300+ wpm. So neat!

I also share links on Twitter @summertomato and the Summer Tomato Facebook page. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you.

    Hi Darya!
    I read the research paper (it was pretty intense!) and I was left wondering:
    They talk about the food triangle and eating either from the left side or right side – which are likely to lead to weight loss, and eating from the bottom – which is likely to lead to weight gain. But what about a balance of all three? Kind of like the foodist plate? Are they suggesting we are doing ourselves a disservice by pairing protein and carbs together?

    • Darya Rose says:

      Great question. No, I don’t think they are implying that, particularly if 50% of your plate is weighted with the top portion of the triangle as in the Foodist plate. The “paleo diet” in the diagram isn’t too far from the Foodist version, since they do replace beans and grains with potatoes and other starchy veg.

What do you think?
