I like Paleo. Grain free and anti-inflammatory.

I strongly suggest that you talk with your Dr and ask for a referral to a Registered Dietitian. That is what they spend years studying and qualifying for. It cuts a lot of the guess-work out. You will find that if you weight all of your food for increased accuracy and enter it ALL into the Nutrition Tracker, when you go to your appointment take with you printouts from the Nutrition Tracker. This will save tons of time and get to the nitty gritty pretty quickly.

Good luck,
Kris

I agree that working with a Registered Dietitian will be helpful since you are dealing with some health concerns.

In the mean time, are you tracking your food? I mean every single bite? Beans and grains can be part of healthy eating but in proper portions of course. One half cup of brown rice, for example, has 105 calories or so or 210 in a cup. That can add up quickly.

Working with a Registered Dietitian is one option.

The second is to adjust the amounts of what works for the other issues to match your calorie needs. Are there anti inflammatory vegetables that you could use to bulk out the grains and beans? If I am eating a cup of a pasta dish, at least 1/4 of of that dish is vegetables, and it's often more like half.

-google first. ask questions later.

I've spent the past 3 months trying to eat to address some health concerns - migraines and IBS-C. Although I have been studying the nutrition recommendations for each separately, advice for both basically amounts to the anti-inflammatory diet, which is grain-heavy. and dairy- and preservaative-free. I have added back grains and beans, which I basically cut out to lose weight, and I have been eating fresh fruit for snacks and desserts. My blood work is perfect, even though I am 55 years old, but now I am up 15 pounds since April! Please post suggestions on how to balance eating "healthy" with eating to lose weight. The 2 have not been the same in my case!
