I’m a snack food (okay candy) buyer… one of my job duties is knowing what the shit tastes like.
Several times weekly, I end up in tastings. I’m able to control the amount with serving size (usually keep it under 250 cals)… and even gone to great lengths (sometimes chewing/spitting it out) when in company that will accommodate…
As would be expected of my position (and behavior)… I’m a fat bastard (low to mid 20’s body fat), also not surprising, I’ve also got shitty cholesterol (high total, low HDL)… anyway working hard otherwise to rectify… just wondering if the collective wisdom here can give any pointers to combat this particular job hazard?
Would glucose disposal aids (otc like True Nutrition’s or even Rx like Metformin) be worth considering? No doubt fat = insulin insensitivity issues, right?
Or are diet tweeks (i.e. cutting back calories from my healthy food sources to stay at target), sufficient?
