Did you know that you can eat fat and carbs, and lose weight? That is exactly what I did and lost 60 lbs.
Can it be true? Yes, and you can do it too. My blood pressure went down over 20 points too.
Our family, compared to the modern American way of eating, was pretty healthy already. We ate meat and vegetables for supper every night. Tried to buy, what we thought were “healthy” snacks. We stayed away from milk and bread.
My wife suffered from about 1-3 migraine headaches a week. I was 5’11” 265 lbs and still had high blood pressure, but for the most part we “felt” alright.
Some of the other foods that we added were avocado, pistachios, peanuts, walnuts, banana, lemons, limes, oranges, kale, beets, collard greens, rutabaga, cilantro, green onion, turnips, coconut oil and lots of greens.
The key to this success is eating Healthy fats like olive oil, avocado, salmon, coconut oil and nuts. The carbs you eat should not come from processed foods, and NO sugar! The carbs need to be from fruits, legumes and beans. Your body can process these without turning it into fat. When you eat sugar, your liver processes it into triglycerides for example. So the key to eating both fats and carbs is NO SUGAR! Plant based menu plans include so many enzymes and vitamins that are easy for your body to process.
1. Oatmeal (not pre-packaged)
Mix with coconut oil, cinnamon, freeze-dried peaches or strawberries, banana chips, chopped walnuts, and stevia extract. Pour warm water over as needed. Stir and enjoy.
I always drink lemon water in the morning.
Every day I take a good multi-vitamin, 400-1600 mg of magnesium, 1200 mg of fish oil, olive leaf extract, l-arginine, 4000 mg of vitamin c, vitamin b-12, and vitamin d-3.
This is an example of how I cleaned up my health and you can too! Try swapping out bad fats for healthy fats and look for ways you can cut out the sugar.
