Best Diet To Lose Fat For Women Over 50 (NO Calorie Counting)
I have been blogging for more than a year about the diet/eating plan that helped me lose a stubborn 20 pounds. The weight came off easily after I visited a naturopath who advised a low sugar, low carb eating plan coupled with moderate exercise and stress management.

After  a few months on this plan, I lost the weight AND lowered blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol.

More recently, I found out the hard way that this eating plan also should include high fiber foods and a fiber supplement.

When you put the plan together, it requires NOT counting calories or restricting food, but paying attention to the following:
  1. Low sugar consumption (no more than 25 grams a day).
  2. Low carb consumption (no more than six servings for a total of 120 grams per day of good carbs). Bad carbs are anything with white flour and white rice). Also, carbs should not be consumed after 5 PM.  I'm also experimenting with gluten-free food, but that's another story.
  3. High fiber consumption (35 grams per day) with a supplement of your choice. I'm stuck with Metamusil for the next few weeks but after that, I am trying PGX.
Note that this diet/eating plan closely resembles the Mediterranean diet. 

This is my observation, and it is confirmed by the father of functional medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Bland, in his book The Disease Delusion: Conquering the Causes of Chronic Illness for a Healthier, Longer, and Happier Life
