How to Profit in the Restaurant Business

Many readers of my blogs let me know every time they read about applied game based thinking (AGBT)  or game theory being applied somewhere in the world.

The concept is so pervasive in the culture that half the time people who realize they are describing the concept  of “Game Based Thinking” to solve their challenges don’t even use the word “Game”.

Here is an article by a famous Chef about how awful the restaurant business is for anyone who does not use Game Based Thinking. Interestingly, the word “Game” is never mentioned in the article.

The key here is that he is observing his business based on “game space” strategy and the Theory of Constraints.

Remember Game based thinking means strategizing based on what others might do

I was speaking at a convention of restaurant owners recently. The chairman of their committee had contacted my company www.nostressspeaker.com to have me speak  at a convention on the stress of owning a restaurant Of course we included corporate on-site chair massage in the program through our partnership with www.eventschairmassage.com.

Healing Depression By Controlling Intake of High Glycemic Index Foods.

Some people get depressed as a side-effect of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). A way to prevent this is eating foods low on the glycemic index.

imgres.jpg

The glycemic index or glycaemic index (GI) is a number associated with a particular type of food that indicates the food’s effect on a person’s blood glucose (also called blood sugar) level. A value of 100 represents the standard, an equivalent amount of pure glucose.

The GI represents the total rise in a person’s blood sugar level following consumption of the food; it may or may not represent the rapidity of the rise in blood sugar. The steepness of the rise can be influenced by a number of other factors, such as the quantity of fat eaten with the food. The GI is useful for understanding how the body breaks down carbohydrates and only takes into account the available carbohydrate (total carbohydrate minus fiber) in a food. Although the food may contain fats and other components that contribute to the total rise in blood sugar, these effects are not reflected in the GI.

 

 

The glycemic index is usually applied in the context of the quantity of the food and the amount of carbohydrate in the food that is actually consumed. A related measure, the glycemic load (GL), factors this in by multiplying the glycemic index of the food in question by the carbohydrate content of the actual serving. Watermelon has a high glycemic index, but a low glycemic load for the quantity typically consumed. Fructose, by contrast, has a low glycemic index, but can have a high glycemic load if a large quantity is consumed.

The organization of the glycemic index revolves around the ranking of glucose at an arbitrary figure of 100.  Foods are evaluated by how fast they turn into blood sugar in comparison to sucrose.  Foods with a glycemic index above 100 turn into blood sugar even faster than sucrose. The higher the ranking of the food the more glycemic it is.  A food whose glycemic ranking is over 60 is considered high on the glycemic index. The higher a food ranks on the glycemic index, the greater its influence on glucose levels and the greater potential for it to effect mood swings and other psychological symptoms.

The best foods to use for stabilizing blood sugar based on the glycemic index are  green leafy vegetable. Among starchy vegetables sweet potatoes – (54) and, green peas (48)  are best. Fruits tend to be high on the GI however those fruits that are lower and can be used in small amounts include grapes (43), orange  (43), peach  (42), pear  (36), apple  (36),  plum  (24),  cherries  (22).  With exception of split peas (high on the GI with a rating of 82) most legumes are in the 30-49 range and soybeans are only 18. And peanuts are 14.

These are the best whole grains to use: in a hypglycemia control diet. rolled oats and oat meal (49),  bulger  (47) wheat kernels  (41),  hominy  (40),  whole wheat  (37) , Puffed Wheat  (25),  barley  (25)

 

Others include

Rice Bran  (19)

     The best “Low” glycemic index foods , are the ones  with a ranking under 45  including  beans, cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli and high-fiber, low-sugar cereals as well as low-fat, unsweetened plain yogurt,  grapefruit, apples and tomatoes, to name a few.

     I found the most effective approach to integrating the glycemic rating system in an herbal based emotional healing system is to:

1. Mix 30 percent of total calories from vegetarian proteins with 40 to 50 percent from carbohydrates ranked low to moderate on the glycemic index.

2. Fat calories should be in the 20 to 25 percent range and should be derived from monounsaturates such as olive oil

3. Choose whole grain breakfast cereals based on wheat bran, barley and oats

4. Use whole grain breads made with whole seeds.

5. Use lemon juice and vinegar dressings

6. Pay attention to portion control
