Are you making your plate too complicated?

Nov 11 2017
What should I eat? A question many people ask when they want to lose weight or just be healthy. How many calories? How many grams of carbs? What about my macro breakdown? Am I getting enough Omega-3s? What the heck are Omega-3s??
Really, it’s not rocket science. If you aren’t prepping for a physique show or competing in a high-level sport, the contents of your plate shouldn’t be that complicated.

For most people, all you need to know is:

  1. The difference between non-starchy and starchy vegetables
  2. What a whole grain is
  3. What kind of protein source you prefer
  4. What a healthy fat is
  5. What works best for you
And the answers:
  1. Examples of non-starchy vegetables are cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green beans, yellow squash. Examples of starchy vegetables are potatoes, corn, rice, yams
  2. Examples of whole grains are: bulgar, barley, quinoa (plus food products made with whole grains but which are typically not as healthy)
  3. Are you a vegan or vegetarian? A vegan may look to foods like nuts and tofu for his/her protein source. Vegetarians typically add in eggs and dairy products for protein sources. Meat eaters need to decide what quality of meat they eat…organic, free of antibiotics and growth hormones, or no requirement.
  4. Healthy fat examples are oils such as olive and sunflower, nuts, avocado, coconut
  5. What works best for you: Do you feel better eating less meat? Fewer starchy vegetables and grains? Or do you suffer from too many cravings when you remove grains completely? It’s different for everyone. Take a look at our body types. Are we all the same type? No. Do we all excel at the same sports? No. Some of us can run a 5k with no practice at all. Others run two blocks down the street and have to stop. Still others feel energized with a weight lifting workout. The same holds true for our nutrition. Not everyone is the same!

All of us should fill at least half of our plates with non-starchy vegetables. It’s universal knowledge that vegetables are healthy and help ward off disease. You will be hard-pressed to find anyone in the nutrition or fitness field who argues with that thinking.

All of us should include a protein source on our plate. If nothing else, to maintain blood sugar levels and fight off the onset of diabetes.

All of us should include a healthy fat. Unlike in the 1990s, we now know that we need fats each day for optimal health.

The rest: starchy vegetables, dairy, whole grains (and foods made from whole grains) are optional. Some do better with them and some do better without. Fruits are healthy in reasonable amounts.

What about those highly processed foods? Where do they fit in? In a perfect world they wouldn’t exist (or wouldn’t be detrimental to our health!), but this isn’t a perfect world and we aren’t perfect people, so we enjoy them here and there but limit them.

As always, learn what works for you. Then fill your plate with your new knowledge and don’t worry about it!
