As you already know, I frequently work with clients wishing to limit their weight through hypnotherapy. I think all of us are aware that the “Standard American Diet” (SAD diet) encourages many of us to eat excessive amounts of meat, as well as certain carbohydrates such as white rice, French fries, pastries, and other sugary sweets. Vegetables and salads are included in the SAD diet, but unless they have been prepared with healthy, fresh ingredients, their nutritional value is often underrated.
A Refreshing Approach to Healthy Eating
Hypnotherapy (along with BWRT) can successfully motivate a client to reduce their weight and caloric intake, alongside a strong motivation to exercise. I was recently investigating alternatives to the “SAD” diet and came across a refreshing approach to healthy eating, all summarized in a program entitled “The Forks Over Knives Program.”
A Highly Appealing and Delicious Approach to Eating
Today I want to introduce you to an intriguingly distinctive way of changing how you eat. A word of caution: it isn’t for everyone. However, I have read several stories of men and women who’ve lost up to 300 lbs. through this highly appealing and delicious approach to eating. Once again, no judgment here!
Here is what some of you might wish to explore through the Forks Over Knives nutritional program:
- Meat and potato/rice diets are unsustainable, both from the vantage point of your health and the health of our planet.
- Included below are top tips to motivate you to consider changing your diet:
- Make sure your meals include lots of fruits and starches such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, whole grains, and legumes. For example, consider these entrees: sweet potato pie, chickpea pot pie, black bean chili, etc.
- Consume Tubers: beets, carrots, horseradish, parsnips, potatoes, radishes, sweet potatoes, and rutabagas.
- Meat is either excluded, or minimally included (chicken is ok; so is fish and dairy products including eggs) as well as oil, bleached flour, and refined sugar.
- While using these foods, enjoy them to the point you’re absolutely satisfied and full.
- Why not make friends with other folks similarly interested in these new food combinations?
Brittany Jaroudi suffered from hypertension, high cholesterol, and chest pains at the age of 25. She weighed 185 lbs. and was only 5 ft. tall. One day, she ran across the Forks Over Knives documentary and immediately discovered the tantalizing tastes in its recipes. Three years later, she’s lost 60 pounds, has normal cholesterol and heart rate, and participates in Whole Foods/Plant-Based workshops.
Let’s face it: it’s fun to experiment with new foods. Here’s to being innovative in your kitchen!
