Today we're going to talk about how to fix all the devastation that we've just leaned about in the past 9 posts on weight loss.
So today's topic . . . an "Anti-inflammatory diet"! So what exactly is this kind of diet? Well . . . it's really not a diet but rather a guideline for a way of living.
It's an eating plan designed to prevent or reduce low-grade chronic inflammation, a key risk factor in a host of health problems and several major diseases that we have discovered over the past 9 days. These typical guidelines emphasize eating fruits, vegetable, lean proteins, nuts, seeds compliant carbohydrates and healthy fats.
Now that doesn't sound so bad . . . does it?
Okay . . . so the key to any new experience . . . is to be . . . Creative!!!
It's not about doing without . . . it's about altering and being creative with what you have. If you like muffins . . . you can still have a muffin as long as it's an anti-inflammatory one (I have an awesome recipe). If you are a bread eater . . . then buy or make bread with a flour like "Sorghum" flour which is very low in "lectins" (we spoke of them the other day) and contains nutrients that are said to help reduce inflammation and balance blood sugar levels.
The "anti-inflammatory" guidelines I use are simple . . .
Breakfast - small size meal, high in "good" fats
Morning snack - compliant protein with "good" fat
Lunch - medium size meal - simple carbohydrates and compliant protein
Afternoon snack - simple carbohydrate
Dinner - healthy size meal - compliant carbohydrates, simple carbohydrates and compliant proteins
Evening snack - clear liquids (no . . . that doesn't mean alcohol silly)
As for what to drink during the day . . . plain water, water with lemon, water with chlorophyll, no-caffeine tea, electrolyte water (NO sports or energy drinks) or warm ginger water.
As you can clearly see . . . I am by no means starving. And I can assure you that I probably eat more than you do on your current or favorite diet.
You see . . . it's not about doing without . . . it's about doing it differently. When you do this type of an anti-inflammatory plan . . . in a week you will notice a big difference in your health and your weight . . . and you didn't have to worry about calorie counting or starving yourself.
And I know most of us don't like "change". But we are in a world now of "CHANGE" and this is our chance to correct our health and do it right this time.
So tomorrow, we'll talk about an easy way to kick start your metabolism and get this weight loss ball rolling.
