You’ve probably heard the phrase “to separate the wheat from the chaff”. That means to remove the bad part of something, leaving the desirable part readily available.

That’s not what CHAF is. It is another acronym that I made up (it goes along with GOYLA.)

I reference a junk food diet that can lead to weight loss. Here is the article: “Twinkie Diet”

Quality food, in the right quantities, is one key to weight loss success.

  1. I have found that I cannot have grain, and potatoes. My system just over does the insulin. I am doing the South Beach Diet at this time staying in phase one. I am losing my weight and I am eating more. More calories, and much more protein and good fats. My carbs are from veggies, and fruit, but even my fruit I have to limit much more than I use to. I agree with everything you are saying, but there are some of us that just cannot follow all of the rules. I am now losing weight again while my calories are up almost 20%, but my carbs are down from 45-50% to 20-35% depending to the carbs and the days. I have days I will have carbs down to 20% then other I will push up due to trying to find what I can handle and what I cannot. I can seem to handle some whole grain cereal so long as it does not have wheat. I can handle sweet potatoes but not white potatoes etc.
    I a re-learning myself again.
