WHAT IT IS?
“Our nutritionally deficient, stress-dominated living as well as dieting and toxin-filled eating has abused our body systems, hormonal balances, and metabolisms to make weight loss nearly impossible.Master your metabolism is a program designed to repair your metabolism by the way you eat and what you eat. Not only will you lose weight, you can also reduce your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
It takes a three-phase approach that first removes “anti-nutrients” (processed, preservative-filled foods) from your diet, then replaces them with healthy foods that help with fat-burning, and finally, re-balances your hormones with better food, exercise, and sleep habits.
Master you Metabolism: WHAT YOU CAN EAT?
YOUR METABOLISM MEAL PLAN is centered on 10 “Power Nutrient” Food Groups:
1.Legumes (peas and beans)
2.Alliums (onions, leeks, shallots)
4.Meat and eggs (this group also includes fatty fish like salmon)
5.Colourful fruits and vegetables
6.Cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower)
7.Dark green, leafy veggies
8.Nuts and seeds
9.Organic, low-fat dairy
Foods like meat, dairy and eggs should always be organic, including tough-skinned fruits and vegetables. Although, sometimes it’s OK to buy conventional foods.
BANNED IN THE DIET are foods with “anti-nutrients” — chemicals, trans fats, hydrogenated fats, refined grains, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, artificial preservatives and colors, glutamates (like MSG), and other additives.
ALLOWED IN SMALL QUANTITIES are starchy vegetables; tropical, dried, and canned fruits, soy products, alcohol, full-fat dairy products, fatty meats, canned foods and caffeine.
LET ME POINT OUT THAT NOT ALL PROCESSED FOOD IS BAD.
“Whole-grain breads and cereals, frozen vegetables, canned fruit in juice and low-salt canned beans are just a few examples of healthy processed foods.” SO BE CHOOSY.
Starts in the grocery store with suggested foods to eat and avoid. This phase is designed to help remove ‘anti-nutrients’ which disrupt hormonal balance by increasing weight gain hormones and blocking weight loss hormones.
Dieters are also encouraged to remove toxins from their homes during this phase, by cleaning out unsafe chemicals used in the kitchen, bathroom and yard.
It is all about optimal nutrition to repair damage supposedly caused by an unhealthy diet.
And finally, SEEK advice from A QUALIFIED DIETICIAN on how to re – balance your metabolism to help you burn fat.
STRATEGIES FOR THIS INCLUDE:
1.Eating every four hours. Eat three MAJOR MEALS and 2 MID MEALS daily, nothing after 9 p.m.
2.Eating until you are full, not till you are stuffed.
3.Include protein, carbs and fat in every meal and snack.
For intense fitness, include individualized exercise plan (cardio and strength training).
EXPERTS CONFIRM THAT EATING A HEALTHY, CALORIE-CONTROLLED DIET AND GETTING PLENTY OF EXERCISE IS A SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN FORMULA FOR WEIGHT CONTROL.
