People always ask me how they should eat. Well, I'll tell you, I have a viewpoint that focuses on being healthy and sexy and amazing. Ready? Here are my four cornerstones to nutritional success, flourishing health and amazing weight loss.
1. BURSTING! Bursting is a my nickname for juicing. Give yourself a nutritional BURST by daily drinking the juices of fresh greens, raw vegetables and fresh fruits. Invest in a cheap juicer and start at home. Juice spinach, carrots, apples, celery and whatever else you can find. This is a great way to boost your nutritional profile, get rid of toxic waste in your system, increase your green foods intake and give yourself a burst of energy. All of which can create the environment you need to lose fat off your belly and waist. Aim for 6-8 ounces a day or more.
note---If you BURST, use locally grown or organic foods. You do not want to overload the system with pesticides from conventional fruits and veggies. Can't afford organic? See step 2.
2. GARDENING! Focus on eating foods from the garden. Make a large part of your daily meals and snacks, fruits and veggies. Apples, oranges, celery sticks, green salads, red peppers --- all of these items make easy snacks and are a great way to fight hunger cravings so that you get lots of fiber and remain full after a meal. The antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and super nutrients will boost your health and keep you on track to meet your fitness and fat loss goals. Aim for 4-6 servings a day or more.
3. GRAZING! Eat whole grains and grasses and sprouts. Try barley grass or wheat grass in powder or fresh form. Add bean or broccoli sprouts to your salads. These super foods will help to clean your system and remove toxins that can keep your body from losing weight and purging the chemicals we ingest every day. Scared to drink grass or eat sprouts? That's ok. Eat whole grains. Brown, red, black and wild rice, along with oats, buckwheat, barley and sprouted grain breads provide excellent nutrition and fiber to help keep toxins out of your intestines and fat off your tush! Aim for 2-4 1/2 cup servings a day. Add 2 more if you are extremely active.
4. CRACK! Crack open nuts instead of a can of chips. Nuts and seeds provide the systems in your body with healthy oils that can prevent heart disease, clogged arteries and also lubrication that gives you clean colon and soft skin. So as you shrink that waistline, you will be sparkly with a glow that makes you look young, healthy and alive! Aim for 2 servings of 20 nuts OR 2 servings of 2 tablespoons of seeds.
There you have it. BURST> GARDEN>GRAZE> AND CRACK! Those are my keys for preventing disease and having a sexy waist!
As always, BE WELL!
