oWe have put on more than we have given off.
oWe have aged somewhat and have not adjusted our lifestyle to accommodate for the change in metabolic activity.
oWe have spent time on vacation - the seemingly best excuse for over-eating.
oWe have quit smoking and are substituting the 'food drug' There are more reasons for weight gain than there are cafes along the boulevards of the world.
I am of the opinion that most people choose not to take care of themselves and become slaves to their senses - a state I term - 'sensual gratisfaction.
' This is not meant to be an article of value judgement, but rather an internal discourse that I have had with myself for over 30 years - one that seems to surface with the advent of each new 'Diet' that is pronounced as being the panacea to losing weight.
During my search for Health and Happiness I have been amused and bemused by the number and types of diet that have been on offer.
Do you recall any of these diets? othe Atkins othe Russian othe Israeli othe Scarsdale othe New York othe grapefruit othe chicken othe cranberry othe grape othe 3 day othe 7 day, all you can eat othe One Good Meal and the best one for my sweet tooth - The Chocolate Diet I mean really folks! Ifyou are sincerely looking for a diet that works, may I suggest that you try the 'Human Diet' Yes, that's right - there is a diet that is specifically designed for the human species.
oIt is a vegetarian diet oIt consists of 2-3 meals per day - eaten 6 hours apart to ensure that digestion is completed and that the enzymes necessary for the digestion of the next meal are back to their full quotient.
oThe amount of food needed for each person is in direct relation to the size of our stomach and the metabolic rate at which our particular organism runs.
We are vegetarian oby nature oby structure and oby function If you are in doubt about this and need confirmation, I will be very happy to send you information based on Cuvier's Comparative Anatomy study in which he compared the anatomical signs of a carnivorous animal to an herbivorous one - we are plant eaters! Times to Eat oI prefer the No Breakfast Plan oI don't eat until mid-day oI break my fast after my body has completed it's cycle of elimination and excretion - which goes from approximatelymidnight until noon.
oApproximately 6 hours later I eat my evening meal.
oThe rest of the time my digestive system is resting and conserving energy .
oWhat would you do with a lot more energy at your disposal? Amounts of Food Based on the size of our stomach and the duration of time needed for digestion we need approximately 3 pounds (13-1400 gms) of food per day divided into; o50% Fruit o35% Raw Vegetables o10-15% Complex Carbohydrates (Starch) o5-10% Concentrated foods (Protein) That's it! - the one and only - The Human Diet!
