A  Healthy Thyroid Equals Balanced Weight loss

 

  1. Your thyroid dictates much of your metabolism, any malfunction or disease afflicting this area may cause you to have problems in metabolism leading to a drastic problem with your weight so you may either gain weight, lose weight, or may find that losing weight is harder than usual.
  2. Those that plan diets do not consider how their thyroid plus metabolism may affect their weight loss program. Most experts and even the media pitch in and recommend that the best way to lose weight is to cut down calorie intake.
  3. Those with a condition called hyperthyroidism suffer from an overactive thyroid leading to one having his or her metabolism skyrocket. If this is the case, then you will probably lose weight fast. This is a nice proposition for some who wish to lose weight. However, this is actually hazardous to the health.
  4. Aside from the medical difficulties such a disease brings, one will also notice weight problems as a result. These people have trouble keeping on weight and may notice weakness and bulging of the eyes. This disease may need special treatment from doctors.
  5. Hypothyroidism on the other hand works in the other direction by immediately slowing down the metabolism until the body gains weight at a regular rate. Like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism causes a general weakness in the body. It too may need special treatment and may cause serious health problems if left unattended.
  6. While cutting calories can be a challenge for most people to imagine, people involved in life and death struggles head to the supermarket to make serious decisions on whether to buy that extra box of sweets, or other foods they know aren’t quite healthy for them. Then some others have exactly the opposite problem.
  7. Instead of eating too many calories which is a problem in itself, they eat too little calories instead. The key is to find the midpoint. Balance.
  8. Problem? What Problem? The problem with some is that they believe that since the experts say that they have to cut calories, cutting calories to an inordinate amount will reap greater results. Unfortunately, it does not work that way. While cutting calories helps diets, consuming too little calories pushed the body into a hoard mode, the body’s metabolism slow to adapt to the lesser amount of available energy.
  9. If your body enters this mode, your body will work at such slow metabolism that losing weight becomes impossible. The technique here is to cut calories without the body slowing its metabolism. Only then can losing weight become easier.
  10. Another problem that can arise from decreased metabolism is that when your metabolism slows due to a drastic reduction in metabolism, and then you suddenly eat a good, hearty, calorie-filled meal, you are bound to gain more weight owing to the increased surplus of energy.
  11. This is why an imbalanced meal is highly discouraged among those that seek to lose weight. The sudden loss and increase of calories will cause an imbalance in a person’s energy consumption directly affecting fat deposit.
  12. Here is a simple computation to help you get to the right amount of calories you will need per day so that you get your nutrients in the right balance.
  13. First of all, multiply your weight in kilograms by 30. If you only know your weight in pounds, divide it by 2.2 to get to its English equivalent. We divide this number by 30 because that is the number of calories you need to support your weight per pound of weight.
  14. For example if your weight in pounds is 150, divide it by 2.2. That will give you a figure of 68.18. This is your weight in kilograms. Multiply this by 30 and you will arrive at the amount of calories you will need per day to keep up 150 lbs.
  15. You may consult a nutritionist to help you come lose weight. In the end it all comes down to math. If you consume more that your body needs, it stores it as fat. Now is probably a good time to start studying the back of those grocery cartons.
  16. Try to keep your diet at a 40% protein, 25% fat, and 35% carbohydrate meals at 300 calories per meal. Spread out these meals in a day for best results.
  17. While it can be simple computation to get at numbers, do not forget the earlier mentioned fact that the body adapts to its condition. Expose it to extreme ones and you may find yourself getting results you never wanted. Consult a nutritionist for more advice.

 

The Appropriation cycle (12pm-8pm ). This is when we should eat the majority of our heavy concentrated foods.

Now your body has the energy required to preformed the vital functions concerning the food you eat. INGEST (EAT)  – DIGEST (BREAK DOWN). This is when we should eat the majority of our HEAVY CONCENTRATED FOODS.

Lunch and dinner fall into this cycle.

This is the time when the body is most efficient at digesting and dealing with foods. It’s also the time when we are burning them up the fastest because we’re at our most active. As long as we are eating according the dictates of our appetite, we should be merrily refuelling and burning, refuelling and burning in a fairly steady and comfortable way, which makes for a really comfortable feeling in the body.Eating when one is truly hungry can take a bit of getting used to, but is far more enjoyable than eating just because the clock dictates it’s lunchtime. And it makes so much sense! 

Lunch is the best convenient to have starch meals at lunch as opposed to protein, Do so – Do not make this difficult.

Just make sure you plan your meals using the BASIC PRINCIPLES OF COMBING HEAVIER CONCENTRATED FOOD (protein or starch) with lighter foods, vegetable and /or salad).

Here are the food combining basics:

  • Starches + Veggies = OK
  • Proteins + Veggies = OK
  • Proteins + Starches = No No
  • Plant Proteins + Plant Proteins = OK
  • Animal Proteins + Animal Proteins = No No
  • Starches + Starches = OK
  • Fats + Proteins (animal or plant) = No No (or pair moderately)
  • Fats + Carbohydrates = OK
  • Fats + Starches = OK
  • Fruits are best eaten on an empty stomach
  • Fruit + Raw greens = OK (except melons)

When you “mis-combine” (mix incompatible food groups together at the same meal), two things happen: first, the food does not digest properly and ends up rotting and putrefying in your stomach, and second, because the food isn’t being absorbed properly, you don’t get the nutritional value you need from it.

When you mis-combine your meals by mixing animal protein with, say, carbohydrates high in starch (Maxi Carbs), your stomach begins pouring in both alkaline and acid, and unfortunately they neutralize each other. It’s a stalemate, and since the stomach maintains a 104 degree temperature, what you end up with is sort of an “oven” where the undigested meat and starch begins to ferment, rot and putrefy, causing the undesirable symptoms of gas, flatulence, headaches, bloat, sleepiness, diarrhea, constipation, etc. We’re talking about a real mess, and if it continues over the years, undigested food will begin to pile up and ultimately clog your colon and intestinal tract (your life lines to health).

 

WE ALL MUST BECOME MORE ACCEPTING OF THE FACT THAT…..WE DO NOT HAVE TO EAT MEAT AT EVERY MEAL……..WORK WITH THE PROGRAM AND THE PROGRAM WILL WORK FOR YOU.

 

Amplify Your Food With Good Vibrations!

 

Why You’ve Got To Try Energetic Cooking

In the process of preparing a meal there is a special opportunity to infuse nutrients inside the food with love. I call this Energetic Cooking since you’re using energy and intent on the food. This one step can transform  a stagnant household in minutes! The truth is- even when someone feels there is nothing they can do to assist in the nurturing of another. We can always do something to help someone.

 

For instance, you know someone under the weather and you’re preparing  food or drink for them, you want to share some positive vibes with them too. Its an easy process to do all this at the same time, simply place your hands over the pots and visualize the person smiling, vital or just see them back in full strength.

 

You can also do this by singing songs that you feel will energize you and this will energize the space you’re preparing in.

 

If you look throughout history and even in some households today, you will find examples of people massaging seasonings, herbs and singing, chanting or visualizing. The nourishment comes not only from the cook’s added ingredients but it also comes from the intention of love that’s blended together with their hands. Get creative with your next meal. Raise your vibrations to where you want them to be by energizing your food!
