To lose weight, be healthy, and look great, follow this:
Throw out or eat up all of the fattening foods that you have in the house. Never buy these again unless….you are having an uncontrollable craving that you have to satisfy. I’ll cover this in more detail later.
After you have taken care of that, you’ll be ready to move on.
On this plan, you will have a limitless amount of food choices to choose from every day! However, to keep a healthy balance, I have come up with what I call a “rotation plan”. Eat a fruit, vegetable, carbohydrate, and a fat with every meal. I have outlined the amount below. However, with carbohydrates and fats, this will require more focus. With this plan, a food that has over 7 grams of fat per serving will count as a fat. If not, it will count as a carbohydrate, even if it is relatively low in the amount. If your food does not have a label, do a little research and find out what the ingredients are.
- Fruits (moderate amount)
- Vegetables (no limit)
- Carbohydrates (minimal amount)
- Fat (minimal amount)
- Juice made from a juicer (moderate amount)
- Water (no limit)
If you’re still hungry after eating your meal, repeat with another fruit, then a vegetable, carbohydrate, and fat, until full. Follow the guide above- fruits (moderate amount), vegetables (no limit) and so forth. Of course, no 3 servings of pasta with five pieces of bread as your carbohydrate serving! Read the label and eat the serving amount only! This includes all beverages as well other than water.
- Helpful hint: “Healthy” fats are avocados, nuts, seeds, and organic peanut butter. Not candy bars!
- Exercise (aerobic) at least 20 minutes every day! Suggestions: Riding a bike, walking, etc.
- Exercise some more (crunches) at least 5 minutes every other day (not counting resting in between)
- Eat three meals a day! (No combining all three at once if you skip breakfast and lunch )
- Eat your biggest meal at lunchtime. Then, begin to eat lighter and lighter as the day progresses.
When you feel a satisfied full, not a stuffed full, that’s means stop eating! Wait about twenty minutes after you finish eating before deciding that you are not satisfied and continue to rotate. Only one serving of each per rotation. Keep rotating until full.
You can combine: If your sandwich has vegetables along with your fat and carb (the bread) then you have rotated everything successfully (except the fruit, which would be next).
Do not drink while eating!
Drink water all day every day.
Buy a juicer and juice three times a week. (The combination of six medium -sized carrots, one apple, one fourth of a medium-sized beet, and a handful of kale is best.) Juicing counts as one of your meals. (I suggest doing this for breakfast.)
If you like to snack, do it. Just remember to keep an eye on the serving size, then rotate. (For example, if you eat a serving of potato chips, and you want more, it will then be time to snack on carrots. )
Don’t forget to follow the guide above for exercise!
Absolutely no food or drinks (except water) after 8 p.m.
Also, it is important to do a juice fast once a week. (See the juice recipe above.) This is the natural way of cleaning out your colon. Have as much juice as you like on your fasting day.
If you have a craving that you cannot control, and it’s about to drive you crazy, satisfy it. Eat as much of “that fattening food” as you want , but only do this once a week! This also applies if after 8 p.m., you drink anything other than water. This is your one “get out of jail free” card for the week.
In closing: If you skip any part of this plan, the whole thing is no good! Therefore, the plan itself did not fail, it was not properly followed! Also, you must be totally disgusted at yourself being overweight, and totally disgusted at other overweight people as well. This is the mindset of thin people. For example, if someone magically added 100 pounds to me, I would be so upset that I would fast until the weight was gone. This is the mindset that you need to have for sustained weight loss. Also, if you give in to the food, end the plan, and gain all your weight back, don’t give up. You just aren’t committed enough at this point in your life. But don’t get frustrated. This diet plan will always be here for you when you’re ready to really do it!
