Second Day of Fast and Feeling Good!


A number of years ago I was once again needing to loose weight as I am now, and I worked with a woman who tested my body for allergies and foods that would assist me to loose the pounds I had put on from indulging. The 'not-allowed' foods were, of course, my favorites! The plan worked well for me, and I took off all the weight I had gained from the foods my body doesn't tolerate, especially sugar. Sugar is toxic for my body as it is for most people!

Everybody has a different constitution, and this is the reason why there is no ONE perfect weight-loss plan for everybody! It's helpful to determine what body type you are, and then work with a specialist as I did to discover your body wisdom. There's an old saying: your body doesn't lie!

Here's the LARGE list of what my body doesn't tolerate or process easily:

Grains: wheat, corn, spelt, rye or oats

Sugar: desserts, wine, alcohol, beer

Coffee or caffeine drinks

Cheese, including goat milk cheese or yoghurt

Honey, maple syrup or chocolate

Peanuts, nuts or chips

Mustard, vinegar, cinnamon

Butter or regular milk

Fresh or dried fruits

And the SHORT list of what my body needs to be healthy and loose weight:

Millet, rice, soy, beans

Beef, Lamb, Eggs, Chicken, Shellfish

Fresh tomatoes and canned tomatoes

Root vegetables and other vegetables

Sunflower, sesame and pumpkin seeds

Protein drinks made without whey

Once I complete my three day fast, I plan to once again follow this program as I know it works for me!

Here's a great link to health and medical quotes.

It's helpful to read these quotes to remind yourself about health, at least it is for me.

I just started a diet and it is so hard. I quit drinking sodas and started drinking copious amounts of water everyday. My medications for my illness cause a lot of my weight gain so I have to fight it. Take care and have a great weekend!

Mahalo Nui Loa Andrew for pointing out the benefit of drinking lots of water to assist in weight-loss...definitly a part of my program too! Good luck with your weight-loss!
 
Kuanyin, I wish you luck! I often think fasting would be easy for me; it's cutting down on food while still consuming it that's hard. I quit smoking "cold turkey" 25 years ago with no problem at all - and I quit drinking alcohol 2 years ago (due to having developed an early oral cancer, for which alcohol is a risk factor). Again, I had no problem quitting. The problem with food is we have to eat it to survive and that's where I always run into the problem of temptation. Perhaps fasting is a good way to start as it makes you immediately change that mindset and when you go back to food it might be easier to eat healthy. I may give it a try myself!
