Many people have been trying to lose weight with various diet and exercise programs. Everywhere you look you see another diet popping up from cabbage soup, cookie, peanut butter, grapefruit, high-protein, low-carb and more. You have no doubt heard that you should lose weight to be healthier because obesity is a health risk causing heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and stroke. Right? People have been pushing the idea that fat directly causes these other problems, but could the opposite actually be true?
Instead of thinking about losing weight to get healthier, what if the real answer is that you have to become healthier if you truly desire to lose weight? In other words, what if obesity is merely another symptom and not the cause?
The problem with making it a disease is now it gets to be treated with medication and if some non-medical practitioner treats it, he or she could be practicing medicine without a license. The good news is that there is a solution to this that enables you to be in full control.
There is a way to use intermittent fasting to improve your health and achieve weight loss without cravings and hunger. By nourishing the body and providing it with the vital nutrients it needs, hormonal balance returns and weight loss follows as the reward.
One of the best ways to begin to heal the body is by giving it the nourishment it needs.
Dr. Eric Berg has produced a line of products that have proven to be very effective when it comes to providing the foundation for healing the body.
Below are the list of products that I personally use that have not only made it easy for me to do intermittent fasting, but have also significantly reduced cravings and hunger at the same time.
Dr. Berg's Raw Wheat Grass Juice is not like other green drink powders on the market. It has an excellent lemon flavor that makes it a pleasure to drink.
One small scoop taken in the morning with 8 ounces of cold water is equivalent to eating about 1.2 pounds of vegetables.
In addition to the raw wheat grass juice, I have personally found that Dr. Berg's Electrolyte Powder provides the much needed minerals the body needs to support the chemical processing underlying your health.
The Nutritional Yeast is another very important part of a good program of nourishing your body. This product has a full set of essential B vitamins that your body needs daily to fully heal.
To truly ensure that your body is getting all of the vital nutrients that can be obtained from whole foods, it is highly recommended to include Dr. Berg's Whole Cruciferous Superfood in your daily routine.
Once I began to nourish my body with the powerful nutrients listed above, not only did my cravings drastically reduce, but I was able to go the whole day without the typical hunger pangs that cause most others to spend most of their day eating.
Personally, I start my day with a brisk power walk to warm up and get myself going. Then just before leaving for work, instead of having a typical American breakfast, I have 16 ounces of water with one scoop of the Raw Wheat Grass Juice Powder combined with a scoop of the Electrolyte Powder. Along with this drink I also take 3 Nutritional Yeast tablets to provide a full range of B vitamins.
This simple way of feeding my body enables me to get through most of the day without feeling a single pang of hunger.
Instead of planning a typical lunch, I pack another small shaker in my bag with another scoop of the Raw Wheat Grass Juice and Electrolyte Powders. At about the time that everyone else is heading down to make that big decision of the day, I simply go to the pantry and put about 16 ounces of cold water with some ice in my shaker and have the most nourishing lunch I could imagine.
Having that power packed drink along with another 3 tablets of the Nutritional Yeast tablets not only am I more energized throughout the rest of the day from skipping a meal, but I am able to go the entire day without eating until I get home and have a healthy dinner.
Now comes the best part. When I get home from a productive day at work, my wife and I prepare a very large salad and a protein that ranges from seafood, chicken or sometimes beef.
A typical salad will consistent of a range of greens, sprouts, avocado, a little feta cheese, olives, peppers of different types. We use our imagination to combine the raw greens that we enjoy and this ends up being a very happy way to end the eating day.
That's right, with the above nutrients I am able to stick to having only 1 meal a day without cravings or hunger. In fact, with this routine, my body is getting more nourishment than I was getting previously with a full day of eating.
