Three Keys to Successfully Losing Weight – Part I

Three Keys to Successfully Losing Weight – Part I

• Establish a new eating pattern.
• Eat whole foods including:
• Vegetables
• Protein (eggs, chicken, fish, beef)
• Good fat (avocados, raw nuts and seeds, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil for cooking)
• Minimal carbohydrates (whole grains, fruits, beans and only at breakfast and lunch)
• Drink two quarts or more of pure water daily (without fluoride and chlorine)
• If you are craving something sweet choose fruit first or baked goods made with whole grain and a natural sweetener. Stevia works great and is very low in calories. Only have a small amount and eat it before noon-2 pm.
• Be creative with your meals. Add different vegetables to your salads and use seasonings to make food tasty.
• Eat slowly. Become more aware of what you are eating. Stop when you are full.
• Avoid all processed/refined foods.
• Do not skip meals.
• Have a good breakfast and lunch.
• Make the evening meal the smallest. It is best to have a large salad with many raw vegetables and some protein. For the greatest weight loss, eat just raw vegetables.
• Have some raw food at every meal.
• Learn to recognize hunger. It can be confused with thirst, boredom, fatigue or anxiety. If you are not sure, drink a large glass of water first.
• Most importantly, be consistent and enjoy your food!
