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 BMI is 24.9.
Natural Weight Loss
You’ve taken the first step and eliminated the foods and other products that stand in the way of your normal hormonal function.
Now we’re going to talk about how to choose foods to optimize those hormones, and get your metabolism working harder and burning higher than it has for a long time.
We’re going to start talking about all the delicious foods you add to your diet.
Like I said before, I want you to eat.
But I want you to eat foods that work for you, not against you.
Now that we’ve Removed the antinutrients that cause your hormones to store fat, we can focus on Restoring the foods that trigger your fat-loss hormones.
The main focus of this step is the 10 Power Nutrient Food Groups to repair your metabolism and recreate your natural hormonal equilibrium.
You’ll learn to eat whole, natural, real foods to help build muscle tissue and repair cells.
You’ll also learn about specific foods and eating habits to help support your glands and hormone production, turning on the hormones you want, and turning off those that sabotage your weight-loss efforts.
Most of all, this food plan is sustainable.
You may not be able to stick a bag in the microwave and call it dinner, but this should be a pretty easy diet to follow.
You might have to work a little, but the benefits are unbeatable.
I love to talk about the power of choice.
What if I said you have the power to reduce your risk of all obesity-related diseases, like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and stroke, by 50%?
This life-or-death choice is made by you when you choose the foods you’re going to put in your body.
Do you realize there’s nothing in our genes that tell us when to die?
There are genetic codes to tell us how to grow, how to breathe, and how to sleep, but NOTHING tells us to die.
So why do we?
Because we literally rust and decay our bodies from the inside out with poor food and lifestyle choices.
God/nature/whatever name you want to call it has provided us with all we need to heal ourselves.
Hippocrates said, “Let food be your medicine,” and boy, was he right!
Some foods heal with absolutely no negative side effects, are 100% natural, and are as far away as your local market.
I call them Power Nutrients.
A Power Nutrient is a food that can dramatically improve the quality and duration of your life.
These foods have been scientifically proven to help prevent and, in some cases, reverse disease.
They also stabilize your hormones and rev up your metabolism – a welcome side effect you’ll never get from drugs.
In the next several posts we’ll talk about the 10 Power Nutrient food groups you should consume as often as possible!
We’ll look at what each one does for your body and how each helps you restore your body’s metabolism.
As you read about the Power Nutrients, you’ll also encounter “Hormone Trigger Foods”, collections of foods found to either trigger or dampen specific hormones.
All the hormone-positive foods have been incorporated into this diet’s food lists, meal plans, and recipes.
Come join me on my weight loss journey! I’d love to have you along!
Have an awesome day!
