I have never said it was easy.
I know…trust me…I know how nerve racking it is navigating a new healthy eating regimen. There is so much buzz and opinion circulating about what’s healthy and what you should and should not eat for weight loss.
You make your mind up then what? If this isn’t already enough, you are left to blindly feel your way around hunting for “healthy foods” lost on where to turn.
Most newbies get fired up, take the plunge and completely nose dive into deep waters then tread water without progress. This is due to much bad industry information and ignorance. The unfiltered constant bombardment of “health food” advertisements and supplements on social media is off the chain.
It’s no wonder you’re confused after all it’s just yogurt RIGHT?!? You think you’re eating healthy food or is the not so healthy food, fooling you?
If your pantry or frig has any of the following items, trash them on the pronto. Hurry up because these foods aren’t doing your waist line any favors.
Whole wheat bread
Stevia and other sugar sweeteners
Diet Sodas or Soda in general
Fake fat substitutes
FAT FREE crackers or Veggie Chips
Pre-packed deli meats
I’m not suggesting that these foods are terrible or bad but they aren’t the key to your total body transformation. They are not going to kick-start your metabolism and punch you into fat burning status. Fact is…most of these foods will delay the process leaving you frustrated and frozen.
In my opinion, greek yogurt is only useful when you have been experiencing intestinal gut issues. In this case, yogurt with live cultured bacteria are beneficial to help line the bowels. This can also be achieved and have a similar effect as taking a probiotic.
Nonetheless, most yogurts found in the grocery store are bad for you.
They’re often low in fat but loaded with sugar to compensate for the flavor that fat provides. Put simply, most yogurt has had its healthy, natural fats replaced with an unhealthy ingredient.
Additionally, many yogurts don’t provide probiotic bacteria as generally believed. They’re often pasteurized, which kills most of their bacteria.
Folks…if you want to live a healthier more nutritious life you have to consume foods that produce energy and fuel the body. Sugar substitutes and fruit juices only cause the opposite. These calorie rich drinks cause a crash and burn not to mention empty calories leading to excessive weight gain. If you consume two or more alcoholic beverages a
day, week it’s even more important to give up all unnecessary sugar intake. Drinking sodas and juice plus alcoholic beverages are a straight ticket to a chubby bloated muffin top. This is why I save my sugar caloric intake for a glass of sparkling rose’!
This also goes for mocha frappe iced coffee! Pumpkin spice lattes with cream only add to a blubbery butt!
My motto is a hungry body is a healthy body. Your body is a machine. A fat burning machine is at your disposal and firing up your metabolism is the key to optimal health. What you want to do is stick with earthy foods. Foods that are natural and produced from mother earth.

My uncle recently had a massive gall bladder attack. He had just eaten a meal packed with grease, gravy, fried bacon and saturated fats out the wazoo. It made his body sick. Before he was healthy enough to remove his gall bladder, he was sent home to clean up his act. He was ordered a strict diet of soups and vegetables. His primary diet for three weeks was gluten-free. Guess what happened to his body? He lost weight. He feels better and his body didn’t try to reject or react to the healthy foods he was ingesting.
BEWARE of soy protein in high doses because it’s not a complete protein. It’s best to invest in high quality fat and grass-fed fat pasture raised protein
If you are craving a smoothie make your own. Make it from fresh fruit and blend it with a whey protein and skim milk or water. When in doubt eat your vegetables and fruit.
And about those veggie chips. Veggie chips are NOT a source of vegetable. They are a good way to add crunch and zest to a salad or lite snacking. That is all. Try to eat crackers and chips that are infused with chia seeds, nuts and whole grains!
BEWARE and avoid low-fat sugar-free scams. When in doubt think, MOTHER EARTH.
Love, eat clean and live lean
