Default A couple of Phase 1 Questions!

Hey everyone!

OK, I am still waiting on getting a book in my hot little hands, but I need some questions answered!
  1. Is Cheese (like part skim Mozzerella) considered protien or Milk/Dairy?
  2. Are beans considered protien?
  3. 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. http://www.americanbean.org/HealthNutrition/Home.htm
but an incomplete protein
http://www.bodyforlife2.com/incompletprotein.htm

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
