Hey everyone! :)

OK, I am still waiting on getting a book in my hot little hands, but I need some questions answered!

Is Cheese (like part skim Mozzerella) considered protien or Milk/Dairy?
Are beans considered protien?
Are Nuts/Seeds their own category? or do they fall under protien?Other than that, I can everything else is pretty much a no brainer so far! It is just that coming off Atkins, I am trying to get my head around this new way of eating! My book is coming from Amazon!

Good Questions Jovimom
Cheese in general is considered a Dairy. Primarily a Protein and Fat.

Beans - Protein and a Complex carb.
but an incomplete protein

Nuts - Fat and an incomplete protein.

the links provided give you info on what a incomplete protein is and how to make them complete :)

When you follow a way of eating -its hard to wrap yer head around another set of principles... here is a link that provides the difference between Atkins and SB
