The Hidden Essentials to Losing Weight - Developing Healthy Habits | Developing Healthy Habits, LLC:
This relates to sustainability because it pertains to the healthy balance of one's body.
When your body is working well (correctly) then losing weight or gaining weight should typically not be much of a problem. (And a kabillion studies show that the off-and-on fasting is rarely effective and often downright dangerous.)
This is a very readable article about covers the basics of carbs, proteins and fats (including the essential fats, EFAs). She talks about the balance of omega-6 to omega-3 (which should be about 4 to 1, not the typical 20 to 1 for highly processed foods in a typical American diet).
Good bacteria in the intestines should be about 80% with no more that 15% bad for healthy gastro tract.
Having these things in stable balance should result in very stable energy, lubricated joints, stabilized insulin and blood sugar levels.
She argues that you should do these things long before trying to take other measures to weight management (losing extra pounds).
She will also tell you more about why eating fat is good for your health.
