My appearance changed by changing what I ate! You can lose weight, become more focused, gain greater clarity - all in the foods we eat!
" The holidays are over.¬† I am seven pounds heavier... thanks to all the chocolates, fruitcake, sweets, ham, turkey... all the extra consumption of what I know is not healthy but I¬†couldn't help¬†myself! ¬†It is time to get back on track with healthy eating and exercise.¬† As I write this, I feel lethargic¬† - the effect of all the sugar creating havoc through my nervous system! Different sources of research indicates that almost all illnesses start with the gut/digestive system/ colon. Even the pimples that burst on our skin is a sign that the digestive system is not able to eliminate the toxins - so the toxins get eliminated through the skin. I can relate to this because I have suffered with acne/pimples for most of my life and it has left so many scars on my face. In all the research I have done on diets and foods, this ¬†documentary by Dr. Terry Walhs is the best I have seen in helping to educate the public about the foods we consume.¬† She is a¬†medical doctor¬†and who¬†suffered for a decade with multiple sclerosis which left her bed ridden for a full decade. Her video shows how she regained her full health to walking by changing her diet. Please watch this video - it is life changing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLjgBLwH3Wc This caused me to become more conscious about what I eat and to protect my mitochondria which is the key to healing.¬†Last year I faced a health crisis and spent almost a¬†full year in physiotherapy to the point where I simply¬†got frustrated not making significant progress. ¬†¬†Interestingly, after a month of increasing my vegetable consumption to 9 cups a day, I¬†noticed lots of beneficial changes in my body. I¬†had ¬†more energy,¬†greater clarity, less irritation and the dark circles under my eyes¬†disappeared!¬†Best of all, my¬†digestive track felt great.¬† I felt lighter!¬† The most surprising of all results was that the pain in body disappeared - I have not been back for another physiotherapy session!¬† It felt that my body healed itself! Along with Dr. Terry's recommendations, I studied the book ""The Beauty DETOX Foods"" by Kimberly Snyder. It provides great explanations about how to detoxify your body and bring out beautiful hair, beautiful skin, beautiful eyes, a beautiful body and your inner glow. What a transformation my body went through! Here is my morning routine:
- 2 cups of hot lemon water to cleanse out my kidneys.
- The pictures below shows what my breakfast looks like - about 6 cups altogether of kale/spinach, celery, pear, green apple, mango, 1 banana and lemon juice, all blended into a smoothie, with ice cubes.
- A few yoga stretches to lengthen and strengthen my core.
