5 Lifestyle Changes To Create Health
- Eat more fresh or frozen vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices. Drink only water and teas.
- Eliminate or reduce processed foods, refined sugars, fast foods, and sodas. This matches up with reducing high-glycemic index foods, high fructose corn syrup and trans fats.
- Eliminate or reduce pasteurized dairy products.
- Reduce or eliminate conventional meats, especially pork and red meat. Organic grass-fed meats and wild fish are good in moderation.
- Eliminate or reduce highly genetically modified foods: wheat, soy, corn, and peanuts.
Making Changes That Last
Most of us allow food to take over out lives, and we end up “living to eat”. Probably the most difficult part of lifestyle changes is learning to “eat to live”. Once you are able to give up the processed and refined foods, dairy products, and sugar, you will be well on your way to a true lifestyle change. The first 3 weeks are often the most difficult. After this, the cravings will start to fall away.
The Living Foods Lifestyle
Living Foods are raw, vegan and in their original, uncooked state. This lifestyle promotes cleansing and overall wellness because it is easy to digest and nutrient dense. It was developed by Dr. Ann Wigmore to combat deficiency and toxic buildup in our bodies. The Ann Wigmore Institute in Aguada, Puerto Rico was my home and workplace for a year. Many of the people that came to learn the lifestyle were suffering from dis-ease and eating disorders. This lifestyle is powerful… it is miraculous what happens when the body is given the proper nutrition and allowed to eliminate toxic build up!
