I cannot think of worse advice if you have any insulin sensitivity issues whatsoever (which many people do). Eating any of these as a snack regularly would cause me to balloon 5 pounds or more in a day or two -- hardly considered "maintenance."

This advise is meant to be taken as a guide. If anyone has specific dietary requirements than that should be taken into consideration, which was not the intent of this article. I appreciate the information provided and will use it. Thank you

In beauty school this kind of talk this is nothing short of a must. No successful weight-loss patient reaches the goals without acquiring at least two of these ideas. Be cautioned on eating raw leafy vegetables, though. I read in TIME magazine that they can often be the easiest places for dangerous e coli-related germs to fester in.
