SOLUTIONS TO OBESITY
Contrary to media stereotypes, being overweight does not mean you are lazy, weak-willed, or greedy. It means your system is in crisis and is fighting for survival. Our bodies are designed to function in an exquisitely intricate dance of hormonal communication. Eating large amounts of carbohydrates in the form of sugar (especially fructose) and grains disrupts this dance and programs you to get and stay fat. If diet is largely responsible for getting us into this mess, it makes sense that diet can get us out of it
For the greatest weight improvement with the fewest steps, do the following:
â?¢ Avoid sugars and starches and restrict all carbohydrates. They promote fat storage and inhibit fat burning.
â?¢ Increase protein, salad greens, and vegetables. Allow yourself to eat fat.
â?¢ Stop eating when you are full.
A comprehensive weight loss program involves many areas in which action steps can be taken, gradually or all at once. Start by following basic nutrition and healthy lifestyle guidelines, with the following modifications
Foods You Must Eat Every Day
â?¢ Greens. Consume 2 cups daily (measured raw) of any leafy vegetable, raw or cooked.
â?¢ Vegetables. Eat 1 cup (measured uncooked) of artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, eggplant, green beans, leeks, mushrooms, okra, onions, peppers, pumpkins, shallots, snow peas, sprouts (bean and others), sugar snap peas, summer squash, tomatoes, rhubarb, wax beans, or zucchini.
â?¢ (Bone) Broth Soup. Enjoy 2 cups daily to replace minerals (unless you are on a sodium-restricted diet).
You may consume additional amounts of the above foods ONLY if you are still hungry after first eating meat, poultry, fish, seafood, or eggs.
Foods to Avoid
Your primary food restriction is carbohydrate-related.
â?¢ All sugars. This includes simple carbs and starches (complex carbs). Sugar, honey, maple syrup, molasses, corn syrup, beer, milk, flavored yogurts, fruit, and fruit juices are prohibited. The only carbs to eat are the nutritionally dense, fiber-rich vegetables listed above.
â?¢ Starches. This category comprises grains, rice, cereals, flour, cornstarch, breads, pasta, bagels, starchy vegetables such as slow-cooked beans, (pinto, black beans), root vegetables, peas, and all potato products.
â?¢ Water. Drink as much filtered water, zero-carb seltzers, and herbal tea as you like.
â?¢ Alcohol. Avoid alcohol initially. As weight loss and new dietary patterns are established, low-carbohydrate alcohol (not beer) is permitted in moderate quantities.
Important Tips and Reminders
â?¢ Eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full. You are not counting calories. I recommend you start your day with a nutritious meal.
â?¢ The following are NOT on the diet: sugar, bread, cereal, flour, fruits, juices, honey, milk, yogurt, nuts, nut butters, canned soups, dairy substitutes, ketchup, sweet condiments, and relishes.
â?¢ Beware of fat-free or â??liteâ?? diet products and foods containing hidden sugars such as coleslaw or â??sugar-freeâ?? cookies. Check the labels of all foods.
