Most diet food plans just don't work.
The best you can hope for is to lose a few pounds and then gain them right back as soon as you start eating normally.
No, the real goal of any eating modification experience is to find a new way of relating to your food that is healthy, nutritious and tasty.
Eating for Life There are better things you can do for yourself than purchasing boxes of premade food.
The first is to learn how to eat properly.
Have you ever looked at the ingredients in some of those supposedly healthy foods? I can't even pronounce some of the ingredients.
You need to drop the fast food bag, step away from the prepackaged boxes and read on.
Good food is good for you.
Many foods you have been told are good for you aren't.
Things like milk, wheat, soy and artificial sweeteners won't help you lose the fat you want to eliminate, they will only make your life harder.
Let me explain.
The Milk Myth Commercially available milk products are made from the milk of cows that have been injected with growth hormones, antibiotics and a variety of other harmful substances.
They are usually fed on grain, silage and odd byproducts.
All this ends up in the milk.
Then the milk, which might actually contain some nutrition, is heated to kill off microorganisms, but in the process it also kills off the digestive enzymes that are actually good for you.
This is probably why so many people are lactose intolerant these days.
If you must consume dairy products look for those made from raw milk.
They are available online and in any case should be used sparingly.
Chemical Free Meat We all know that chemicals are bad for us, but we continue to purchase commercially raised meats because they are cheaper and more convenient.
Animals that have been raised on grains, byproducts and who knows what else are not healthy for you or for the planet.
Fortunately, there are many sources of grass fed beef and lamb, wild caught fish, organic chicken and other poultry to choose from.
Yes, meat has some cholesterol and saturated fat, but when you pick meat from these sources, the fats are more digestible.
Since you need some fat in your diet, this is your best choice for animal fats.
Coconut Oil and Olive Oil Barring organic butter, these are the only oils you should be using.
Coconut oil is high in lauric acid, which has many beneficial properties.
One major benefit is that it converts to energy rather than getting stored on your hips.
Use coconut oil to fry anything you wish to fry, such as cut up spelt tortillas for a snack.
Use the olive oil for just about everything else.
Oh, and the butter, it goes great on a baked sweet potato.
Remember, diet food plans don't work.
Rethink your relationship with food.
Shoot for eating healthy, organic meals that eliminate sugar, refined grains and chemicals your body doesn't need.
