• BE A TURKEY ( A COLD ONE) AND TAKE A DRUG HOLIDAY
There is no way to handle a true physiological addition except to stop it completely. Addicts can’t have just on line of cocaine of just one drink. Go Cold Turkey, but you won’t have to white knuckle it because if you follow – “5 Ways to Detox” you will automatically reset your body’s neurotransmitters and hormones.
Stop all form of sugar, all flour products and all artificial sweeteners. They all cause increased cravings and slow metabolism and lead to fat storage. This especially includes liquid sugar calories – A latte can have more sugar than a can of soda- that makes you eat more all day and drive storage of belly fat. Also get rid of anything with Trans or Hydrogenated FATS & MSG (watch hidden names).
Ideally, for 5 Days you avoid any foods that come in a box, package or can or have a label, and stick to real, whole fresh food. And the best way to really Detox is to give up all the grains for 5 days. Give up all drugs too, Caffeine, and alcohol are the 2 biggest after sugar.
• POWER UP THE DAY WITH PROTEIN.
Protein, Protein, Protein at every meal, especially breakfast, is the key to balancing blood sugar and insulin and cutting cravings.
Start the Day with whole farm eggs or a protein shake, and recommended whole food protein shake (MHT Phyto Nutri).
Use Nuts, seeds, eggs, fish, chicken or grassfeed meat for protein at every meal. A serving is 4 to 6oz or the size of your palm.
• EAT UNLIMITED CARBOHYDRATES (the right ones).
Yes, that’s right, Unlimited Carbs. Did you know vegetables are carbs? And you get to eat as much as you want. Unlimited refills! There is one Catch. I only mean the Non-starchy veggies such as greens, the broccoli families, (including cauliflowers, kale, collards ) asparagus, green beans, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, tomatoes, winter squash and beets- just for 5 days. Also skip grains and beans for 5 days. It supercharges the results so you lose weight and feel GREAT .
• FIGHT SUGAR WITH FAT
Fat is not a FOUR letter word.
Fat doesn’t make you fat, SUGAR does.
Fat makes you FULL, balances your blood sugar and is necessary for fueling your cells.
Along with the protein, have good fats at every meal and snack including nuts and seeds, which also contain protein, extra virgin olive oil, coconut butter, avocados and Omega 3 fats from fish.
• USE FRIEND POWER , NOT WILL POWER
Extraordinary new research shows that obesity is contagious. You are more likely to be overweight if your friends are overweight than if your parents or siblings are overweight.
But Health is contagious too. In large social experiment, I did with my friend Rick Warren and Saddle Back, we got people to lose weight in a year by doing the program together. They met in groups, helped, loved and support each other and those who did it together lost twice as much weight and get twice as Healthy. I call it the LOVE DIET, everybody Needs as a BUDDY.
Find friends or form a small group and do the 5 DAYS DETOX & LIVE together.
