The idea is to eat whole foods. Cut out eating foods in a package; processed foods. Cut out foods that are white; cut out refined white sugar. Natural sweeteners keep the blood sugar even & don't cause the spikes & crashes. Eating some sweet veggies. Eating whole grains: millet, quinoa, wheatberries...just some of my favorites. These keep your blood sugar even & satisfied longer. There are really yummy ways to spice them up - great w/ veggies. Food really is individual - trying to follow a food "plan" doesn't work for most people.
As you may realize : there is no quick fix - eating healthy does take a little bit of planning but can be very easy & quick; fun even. I show my clients this very thing in a way that's creative & fun! One only needs to be willing to change & try something new.

I need to follow a low-carb eating style due to my diabetes. Even one slice of dense, high-fiber, low-fat bread can send my blood sugar soaring. But, when I fill out the profile to get my suggested food plan, I get one that is higher carb than my body can handle.
How can I use the foodfit plan and low-carb at the same time. I like the idea of having automatic menu suggestions because this is what makes me falter. I don't want to take the time to menu plan. Yet I can't eat all the carbs that the auto-menus suggest.

Thanks, this is fabulous, the information is very helpful and right at my fingertips.
What if the hokey pokey is really what it's all about?
