Carb Thoughts

A number of patients come in to the office struggling with loosing weight.  When I review their dietary journals with them, I notice that many of them never stop eating fruit (because, fruit is good for you, right?!).  Well, lets put it this way:

One banana for breakfast is equal to . . .

. . . just over seven (7) teaspoons of sugar.

Count them . . . seven (7) teaspoons.

If your eating a banana for breakfast, it is halting your weight loss for up to 12 hours.  Give the banana’s to the monkeys and cook up some sausage and eggs for breakfast tomorrow.
