Brief Answer:
Not about what you eat but how much!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

1. I will like to have a copy of these results and weigh in accordingly. To see how far off you were from normal.

2. What you eat isn't the problem. We discourage excess that lead to weight gain. I will say: stay physically active, exercise often and if your weight is higher than recommended, drop all.

Beside these, there are no reasons to be worried about meal types/food types. As long as you don't eat too much calories, you would be okay. But exercise, weight loss and active lifestyle should really be part of your daily objectives.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
