While the husband and I both do want to lose weight, both of the children were blessed with the fast metabolisms of our youth and are on the super skinny side! Our son, at the age of 12 (almost 13) weighs in at less than 80 pounds (at almost 5' tall) and our daughter is 8 and weighs in just over 50 pounds. THEY don't need to lose weight in the slightest!
I guess another big question is how do we make meals for both ends of the spectrum? I mean, if we're not cooking with "high fat" "high calorie" items, how do we take care of the needs of both sides?
We already make our own breads and try to use as few processed foods as possible, even before we watched the documentary. Even tho they were made with all purpose bleached flour, I do believe it's healthier than what you buy in the store.
I do plan on getting unbleached flour and healthier items as soon as the items run out tho.
Another thing that I'm looking at is cost. I know that healthier eating is going to cost more, but how do you make it so it's not cost prohibitive? We are a 1 income military family, we don't make a lot of money. How do you guys manage the money portion? Do you find it less expensive to eat more whole plant based foods than meat based? Any suggestions in this are are more than greatly appreciated!
