About Proteins - The Main Course

There is a reason that The Gourmet-O-Matic tm promotes proteins as entrees.

Eating healthily primarily involves consuming the right number of Calories for one's needs.

Lean proteins generally have fewer Calories per real-life serving than dishes composed mostly of carbohydrates or fats.

Since healthy eating for the overwhelming majority of us will result from consuming fewer Calories, The Gourmet-O-Matic tm emphasizes proteins as main courses.

This approach works well for persons interested in gaining weight, too.

The FitnessMed tm Guide To Healthy Eating explains standard serving sizes for proteins and how to calculate your caloric needs based on your current and desired weights.

For someone interested in gaining weight, e.g., an athlete, this is easily accomplished following the approach in The FitnessMed tm Guide To Healthy Eating. One simply eats additional standard portions to achieve a weight gain goal based on their calculated caloric intake needs.

The strategies used by The Gourmet-O-Matic tm can be found in Dr. Applebaum's meal strategy guide, The FitnessMed tm Guide To Healthy Eating. That book contains recipes for over 1 trillion (yes, with a "T") meal combinations.
