My daughter asks me for the specifics of the diet for my PLAN. She thought pulling the details from the blog made it unclear. Here is my food plan.
The Fitness Triangle Diet
Eat Fruits or Vegetables with any meal or snack.
Eat Clean Whole Foods.
Eat Organic, in season, local when possible.

Watch out for anything with a really long name.
Remember everything in moderation including moderation.
The keys to weight-loss success
Successful weight loss requires long-term changes to your eating habits and physical activity. This means you need to find a weight-loss approach you can embrace for life. You’re not likely to maintain whatever weight loss a diet helps you achieve if you then go off the diet and revert to old habits.
Diets that leave you feeling deprived or hungry can cause you to give up. And because many weight-loss diets don’t encourage permanent healthy lifestyle changes, even if you do lose weight, the pounds can quickly return once you stop dieting.
You’ll likely always have to remain vigilant about your weight. But combining a healthier diet with more activity is the best way to lose weight, keep it off for the long-term and improve your health.
What oil is best?
My choice is Olive Oil or Coconut Oil. There is a lot of talk and controversy around Canola Oil. It markets a benefit as being high in Omega 3. We want that. The issue is that it is made from a GMO developed in Canada and Monsanto is involved, I am OUT on this. We want cold-pressed virgin oil.
