I lost 80 lbs in a year and my weight loss is still on-going doing this. Here's what I do:
"Rule" 1: Avoid soy, msg/monosodium-glutamate (glutamic acid etc.), aspartame/sorbitol/(high fructose) corn syrup or any other non-cane sugar or
non-stevia sweetener. This is not at all easy. MSG for example is - and this is malicious if you think about it - is declared as "Natural Flavors"
and "Yeast Extract" on the label, so now you know about that trap as well.
"Rule" 2: Avoid all oils that contain pesticides or natural toxines: canola/soybean oil/salflower and (omg!) cottonseed oil were never meant for
human consumption (until lately). Safe/good oils are olive and sunflower.
"Rule" 3: I avoid wheat in all forms (bread/pasta etc.). Even small amounts of it make me gain weight like crazy. Now this may not be the case with
you so I avoid wheat .. but your mileage with wheat may differ. You might want to experiment with if wheat (or maybe another food(group) such as
dairy) makes you gain weight or not.
"Rule" 4: I take 10g of Vitamin C and 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 (non soybean formulation, make sure!) per day. Plus I take one good swalllow of Apple
Cider Vinegar (organic with the "mother", i.e. the apple solids in there).
"Rule" 5: If you do exercise and you're building muscle, remember that muscle tissue of course has weight too so don't be dismayed if you don't
see the pounds dropping on the scale. For a long time I didn't even bother checking my weight, I was more delighted in seeing my waistline recede.
"Rule" 6: Especially if you're a guy .. avoid plastic beverages. If you follow my advice you will not be drinking anything from the soda aisle
anyway but you might be tempted to drink water in plastic bottles. Don't. You may still be in your 20-30s, eating huge amounts of soy and guzzling
bisphenol and other xenoestrogens but at some point you will worry about your noodle going limp. I know. I worried :-) But.. lol with this health
regimen I'm not worried anymore.
"Rule" 7: Keep it under 2000kcal maybe even less you have to figure out how much you need but don't worry your body _will_ tell you when you've
had enough if you eat food that hasn't been tampered with (msg!). You can gain weight eating organic clean food as well, maybe not as fast but it can
creep up on you as well.
This is what works for me I wouldn't be surprised if most if not all of this works for you too. But you know it's not just the weight loss, really
what is the key is avoiding any and all of the toxins they want to put into you. The first week I did this, I just felt this intense wave of relief
come over me. I could feel my system standing down from red alert, my mood brightened remarkably right these first days and I really just felt
relieved as if someone lifted a stone off of my chest. Over the next months I was just happy to see me shed a lot of fat and I just feel better and
better about myself every day. Hey, chicks that would turn their head the other way before, now they look at me with different eyes :-)
My food advice really boils down to one key principle: Avoid everything that has been put into food to make you sick and fat ("Rules" 1 and 2). I
didn't mention artificial colors like "Blue Lake #6" or "Red #2" (whatever). I assume you still have a brain and you will of course stay away
from ingredients such as "Trisodium-phosphate" (industrial cleaner found in Thrifty brand icecreams) or Polysorbate-80 (vaccine adjuvant btw) or
anything else "funky".
THIS WILL NOT BE EASY!!! Haha you need to come shopping with me, I look at all the ingredient labels and there is precious little real food in a
normal supermarket just so you know. Also eating at restaurants .. guess what. I suggest you don't because you have 0 control over what they use,
starting with the infamous "vegetable oil" ingredient restaurants like to talk about.. without telling you the vegetable is "soybean". It will not
be easy and you may be ridiculed .. BUT IT IS WELL WORTH IT!!
