    I have watched all of the videos and I know Dr. O has talked about the 1/3 diet.  Would someone remind me which of the videos has the information?

    I thought I had watched this in one of the videos also, but cannot seem to find it now either!  My question on this subject though is how to get enough carbs (following the 1/3 ratio to fats and protein) on a grain free diet.  Although I eat LOTS of fruits and veggies, along with meat, eggs, and nuts I have found it difficult to keep carbs in line with fat and protein….is this an issue or is the 1/3 ratio goal not practical being grain free?

    I have an answer to the 1/3 diet. One Third each of carbs, protein, and fat.  This is determined by calories.  Adjust according to your daily

    activities.  May need more protein on some days due to extra physical activity.

     

    Helpful?

    Well, yes and no…I did understand the “how to” on calculating the 1/3 ratios fat, carb, protein.  What I do sometimes have trouble with is weighing in with enough carbs and I'm wondering how necessary that really is if you're eating the proper foods.  I don't exactly keep a tablet and calculate the exact ratios on my calories but I do a running tab in my head and I am usually lower on the carb end.  Are there maybe some people who just cannot tolerate 1/3 of their calories being carbs, even if they are grain free and most of their carbs are veggies with a small amount of fruit?  I do better with higher protein and fat, even though not much of what I would necessarily call physical activity, just wrangling kids all day! LOL 

    BTW, Rita which video was it?  Thanks! Smile

    This information came from a conversation with Dr Osborne.Smile

    What I have found that works for me while I am making adjustments to diet, is to track what I am eating for a few days on paper.  It looks clearer after you see a  week of meals.   I thought that I may not eat enough protien, and after a few days of tracking, I found that  some days I was right track and other days I was off.  Since I make up menus at the beginning of each week, it was easy to make the adjustments in either the recipes or how much protien I was consuming.

    An example of extra physical activity would be going to the gym, hiking a trail, or touch football.  LOL

    I have found that the guidelines that Dr Osborne has researched really do work so I would encourage you to find the 1/3 balance.

    I found the tutorial that mentions the 33-33-33 diet.  It is tutorial number 13.
