If you are following along with your workbook in the Break the Cycle Facebook group, we are just starting week 4. And the quote for this week is:
‘If you eat for health, the weight loss takes care of itself.’ Dr. Joel Fuhrman
I find this true when it comes to my clients with serious health concerns. Once I put them on a whole food plant-based diet and remove the sugar, salt, and oil, everything starts to get better.
In the case of one of my clients with a cancer scare, she ate healthfully for 6 weeks and lost 20 pounds effortlessly.
So, as a reminder:
1. Concentrate on a high fiber diet. Focus on lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains.
2. Eliminate big cancer foods like sugar, dairy, meat (especially barbecued anything), and alcohol.
3. Avoid all highly processed foods containing sugar, salt, oil or other fats.
Always use food to nourish and strengthen your body. Unhealthy food is not entertainment when you are bored and it is not your friend when you are lonely. Turn your health and weight destiny around by watching what you put on your fork every day.
