Quilt Diva's top tips

1.Think of it as a LIVE-IT, not a diet. Calorie intake should be appropriate to reach and maintain a reasonable body weight.
2.Carbohydrate intake should be about 55%, or slightly more than one-half, of the total daily calorie intake. High fiber, complex carbohydrates should be substituted for low fiber, refined carbohydrates.
3.Protein intake should be limited to 20% of total daily calories.
4.Total fat intake should be limited to 25% of total daily calories. Saturated fat should be less than 10% of total daily calories.
5.Garfield says diet is the word DIE.......with a T on the end of it!
