Doctors all around the world regard obesity as a global health threat. In fact, almost 80% of obese adults have high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated blood-cholesterol levels, coronary artery disease or osteoarthritis. Nearly 40% have more than one of these conditions. The financial cost of these diseases is staggering. Unfortunately, the number of overweight people around the world has climbed to 1.1 billion — and that number is quickly rising…
For breakfast, try a Neolife Shake. It’s loaded with pre-digested protiens, fiber and all 22 amono acids. Cook oatmeal with raisins/dried fruit/fresh apple and a bit of cinnamon. Sprinkle with Hemp Hearts, a bit of Ghee and Milk or Cream. Our glucose is highest in the morning and our bodies require protein.
For your big meal of the day, get one of those collapsible steamer baskets. At the market, head for the Produce section. Pick a few “base” organic vegetables. Your choice. Wash and chop bite size. Add chopped onions, garlic, scallions, a potato. Steam until you can easily pierce the hardest vegetable with a fork.
Sprinkle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Ghee, Coconut Oil, Red Chiles, Black Pepper, Sesame Seeds, Hemp Hearts, and Salt or Tamari, possibly, a small amount of cheese. Serve with simple beans/lentils, cooked Basmati rice or Quinoa/Amaranth, Whole Grain Bread and especially, homemade Yogurt.
You can supplement your protein with an omelette, scrambled eggs or fish.
At snack time, have a small handful of mixed nuts with hot herbal tea or a simple lemonade/fruit drink.
Keep that dinner light.
DRINK MORE WATER.
Studies have shown that increasing your water intake can have great benefits to overall health.
A recent military endurance test had runners on a treadmill.
Some ran, drinking no water, and quit in a very short time.
Some ran while drinking water to their satisfaction and lasted several hours..
Some ran while force-drinking more water than usual. The experiment was terminated before they got tired.
Get up! Get a little move on! Walk at a pace fast enough to create a light sweat. Three miles is the recommended distance to bring up your metabolism. Go to a park. Go into the hills. Take a bike path. Take friends! Three miles is the recommended distance to bring up your metabolism. Walk, don’t stop, keep track of your time and drink water as you go. It doesn’t take very long.
See what 40 days of walking can do for you!
GO TO BED! SLEEP!
Give yourself the chance to recognize Sleep Deprivation. After only 4 days of lesser sleep than normal, the body’s fat cells’ sensitivity to Insulin drops by up to 30%. This is commonly seen in Diabetics and cases of Obesity.
You lose concentration and start taking stimulants. Your morning coffee stimulates your system for 8 hours. So does your afternoon cup. That means, your body really isn’t ready to sleep until midnight! So, we crash. Our sugar balance goes way off, as our metabolism is slowing down and we, essentially, pass out.
Set a reasonable time. Shut down the electronics. Set yourself to sleep for 8 hours. Try this for 10 days and see how you feel. Try this for 40 days and revive yourself!
Natural Weight Loss only works if you think naturally. Taking care of your body-vehicle is a lifelong process that deserves the best you can give it. Underweight and Overweight conditions indicate a system out of balance. Start with a simple diet with as many fresh fruits and vegetables as you can add. Cut your meat, fish and dairy intake by about 2/3. Give your body a chance to adapt and adjust to your new diet. Increase your water intake.
Give yourself about 90 days to see a difference. Give yourself the rest of your life to maintain the difference!
