Eat all you want but fast for 12 hours. Fourteen is better. It has been show that eating exactly the same amount of calories, but fasting for 12 to 14 hours there is weight loss. Same calories. No middle of the night snack.
Technique number two. Eat the exact same amount of calories in the following scenario. Eat your regular diet and measure the calories. You will not lose weight of course. Eat the exact same amount of calories but eliminate sugar, bread and pasta. So you can eat all the vegetables you want, fruit in reasonable amounts, unlimited fat ( no transfats they are unhealthy) and protein. Some carbs are in the vegetables. Use butter. Use coconut oil for cooking and it will be even more healthy. What I try to do, it seems to be working, is combine the two!
Eating sugar and carbs encourages a certain kind of bacteria in the gut. They actually do communicate with the brain via the vegus nerve and create cravings which encourage eating more carbs. They also create inflammation everywhere in the body. Think .....inflammation encourages pain and reducing inflammation reduces pain. Also reduced inflammation is associated with less heart disease and cancer. Talk about a win win situation.
Hopefully you are up on the latest news on fats. They are not bad for you. They do not encourage heart disease in any but very minor ways, if at all. It is inflammation that causes heart disease and encourages cancer. If you read my previous blog you will also realize that having significant pro biotics in your diet will produce vitamin K2 in the gut which will instruct calcium to not go to the arteries and return to the bone. Calcium in the coronary arteries is the leading indicator of a heart attack! All at once heart disease and cancer is reduced!
In a recent study it was said that once a fact is proven true that it takes 17 years for that information to fillter down to your medical provider. Also take into consideration that any knowledge that MD's have about nutrition is self taught. It is not provided in significant quantities in medical school and if they did it would be dated from the day they graduated. Also realize the people who teach the medical profession new information, after graduation, are the drug companies. Why would they teach diet?
Something to think about.
Here they are.
