Yay!! I’ve lost 25.6 pounds total so far with 54.4 pounds to go to reach my goal! My BMI has dropped from 36.9 to 33.1 and my goal is 24.9.
Natural Weight Loss
With this plan you’ll be eating vegetables, lean meat, eggs, and a small amount of fruit.
You’ll be eating whole foods and avoiding processed foods.
Since this plan includes meat and vegetables, it’s much easier for most people to do.
If you’re vegetarian, feel free to eliminate meat altogether from the plan.
Does the menu sound boring?
Does it sound impossible to deprive yourself of all the food you’re used to eating?
Are you worried you won’t be able to do it?
Don’t worry, we’ll make it easy for you.
Bur first, a few rules.
Rule 1: White Is Not Right
Most white foods aren’t naturally white.
Bread, rice, or anything with white flour has been bleached white using chemicals to strip away not only the color, but the nutrients vital for your nutrition.
White, processed foods are basically empty calories, and you may as well be eating spoonfuls of sugar.
Unfortunately, you’d be amazed at how many foods fall into this category.
This will seem like the hardest rule, but it’ll have the greatest impact on your waistline and your health.
So avoid white carbohydrates.
Avoid: All bread, all rice, cereals, tortillas, pastas, noodles, potatoes, anything fried in breading, or anything made with white flour.
Rule 2: Don’t Do Dairy
There are a number of reasons why dairy does NOT do a body good, despite the billion-dollar advertising claim to the contrary.
There’s ample evidence the over-consumption of dairy products creates all types of unwanted effects, including sugars your body doesn’t need and hormones fed to the cows to speed up their production which can cause havoc in our bodies.
However, one observation about dairy products:
Milk is a wonder of nature.
It’s evolved to be a perfect food source for the offspring of all mammals, channeled from the body of the mother into her offspring.
It has the needed enzymes, fats, and proteins to allow the offspring to survive.
Each animal produces a chemically different form of milk for its young.
Each animal’s milk is optimized for that species, including human breast milk.
All animals eventually wean themselves off this nutritional source at a young age when they’re ready for whole foods.
Humans are the only animal who continually drink milk throughout adulthood.
And we’re the only species that drinks the milk of another species.
If we’re going to drink milk, it makes more sense we’d buy human breast milk at the store and use that in our cereal, doesn’t it?
But we’d never do that.
That’s just something to get your wheels spinning.
The bottom line is if you want to transform your body and your health, if you want to train your taste to trim your waist, follow this guideline and it’ll be a much faster and easier path.
Rule 3: Drinking Donuts
How do you drink a donut?
Simply keep drinking soda pop, store bought fruit juices and all the sugar-loaded drinks so many people are used to gulping down.
They may as well be donuts.
This rule was originally called “Drinking Don’ts” . . . like “Don’t drink soda!”
But “Don’ts” looks enough like “Donuts”, so now, every time you reach for a soft drink, think of yourself as literally drinking a donut.
Diet drinks with artificial sweetener count as donuts as well.
Not for the sugar content but because they’re highly processed and very toxic to your system.
And, we’re training your taste buds not to crave sugar.
So what can you drink?
Drink as much water, unsweetened iced tea or hot tea, and fresh squeezed vegetable juice as you can (fruit juice has too much sugar, stay away from it, including orange juice).
You may have a moderate amount of coffee if you want, as long as it’s black and unsweetened.
For many of you, this keeps you from drinking coffee altogether.
Contrary to popular belief, you actually CAN live off water as your only beverage in life.
And of course we wouldn’t end this rule without addressing alcohol.
Alcohol is a sugar.
We’re avoiding sugar on this plan.
This may be even harder for you to give up than breads, but if you want results you’ll do it.
At least for the time you’re training your taste.
Come join us on our natural weight loss journey! We’d love to have you along!
Have an awesome day!
