If you're overweight and trying to work towards a healthier weight, please recognize that being overweight is a chronic condition that requires a doctor's supervision.  Since obesity is closely related to Type 2 Diabetes, seek the help of your local diabetes clinic where you can get advice from a diabetic nurse and a dietitian.


If you're wondering what I've been eating lately, the following list is what my daily meals typically look like.  We've been getting seeds and nuts from the local Bulk Barn and buy just enough to use the coupon in the BB flyer.

Meal Description
  • 2 large scrambled eggs (with bacon if I feel ambitious)
  • 1 cup of spoon-size shredded wheat cereal (if we're out of eggs) with 1/4 cup of seeds (sunflower & pumpkin)
  • 1 avocado (2 if they're small)
  • plain high-fat yoghurt or skyr (100-150 ml or ~1/2 cup)
    • frozen berries mixed in
    • dry roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds mixed in
    • ground flax and/or chia seeds mixed in (for added Omega 3)
  • normal Canadian meal (see Canadian Living recipes)
    • minimize bread and potatoes
    • sometimes basmati rice or cabbage
  • fruit (apple, grapes, orange, banana, etc)
  • dessert (eg, small piece of chocolate)
