Eat Thin

There’s a very small percentage of individuals who can eat absolutely anything they want and never gain weight.

Most of us are not in that wondrous category of humans.

Excluding those rare individuals who don’t get fat no matter what they eat- If we look closely, here’s what we learn from people who have a right size body (i.e. not overweight):

  1. They watch what they eat
  2. They rarely eat seconds
  3. They eat right size portions

Exercise plays a role- but a far smaller role than we think.

What makes us fat is what we eat and how much we consume on a daily basis.

Pay attention to those two things and you’ll begin to shed those unwanted kilos.

 

Small is BIG in weight loss

One of the BIGGEST reasons people fail at losing weight is making BIG changes for a short period of time then going right back to old bad habits as soon as that short “period” is over.

You know the drill- New Year: Get a gym contract. Follow a diet. Workout vigorously… before long… crickets. And we’re right back to where we were before we made the massive changes.

I’m all for big changes- but they’re rarely sustainable.

If You get onto a weight loss regimen telling yourself it’s only for a short period of time (and then you’ll go right back to eating the way you used to): You. Will. Fail.

It’s a journey.

A journey of small changes.

Less sugar here. A little more body movement there. Saying no to seconds. Turning down the chocolate muffin. Repeat. Repeat. And then Repeat. Until those small changes are habit. And the habits become the new You.

You will never lose weight thinking the same way you always have.

Adapt a new way of thinking and You’ll birth a new body for yourself.

Anything less than that is a sure way to fail.

You don’t need a cheat day

We used to recommend “cheat days” now we don’t- because we’ve seen it time and time again that for most people cheat days don’t work.

Theoretically a cheat day is a day of the week when we can eat pretty much anything we want.

In theory it’s great- and for some people, cheat days work. But here’s the problem: for people who are struggling with weight, cheat days trigger their cravings and place them in the position to want more of the food they’re not meant to eat.

One weight loss expert put it like this: would it be recommended that an alcoholic have one day of the week where they can indulge in their favourite drink?

How about a person struggling with drug addiction- would it be beneficial for them to have one day of the week where they could indulge in their drug of choice?

On both counts most people would say no. Why? Because intake of a substance a person is struggling with causes them to relapse.

The reality of it is that for most people struggling with weight the connection to food is akin to that of substance abuse.

Indulging in rubbish food when trying to get healthy will have the same effect as a person who’s trying to stay clean indulging the addiction- the chances for relapse are insanely high.

Cheat days may work for some people, but they don’t work for most. It’s for this reason we don’t recommend cheat days- they’re just not worth it.

Beer vs Vegetables

A recent report by Statistics South Africa has found that South Africans really love their beer. The reports shows that South Africans spend more money on beer than vegetables.

Benefits of Lemon Water

Lemon Water is brilliant for kick starting your day.
It contains superb nutrients like vitamin c which boosts immunity, potassium which is essential for proper kidney and heart function as well as a whole list of other very important roles it plays.
Lemons also contain folate which is brilliant for hormonal balance (superb for improving fertility)- folate is also fantastic for expecting mommies and it’s much easier for the body to absorb folate than folic acid because folate is this nutrient’s natural form.
The great thing about drinking lemon first thing in the morning is it’s far easier to absorb all the goodies of lemon on an empty stomach.

Why Juice?

“In order to get the body to work, you also have to get the poisons out. You have to intensively detoxify.”

– Charlotte Gerson

 

When we talk about “Juicing” we mean making freshly extracted juices using fresh vegetables and fruit.

 

One of our clients sent us this photo of a freshly extracted juice using one of our recipes

 

Never do we use store bought juices in a juicing program. Never. 

Store bought juices, even if they’re “100%” juice lack the LIVE enzymes and other nutrients we need for the detox process.

Essentially juice bought in a bottle, can or any other packaging is dead. And contains no nutritional benefit to the body.

In fact, packaged juice can be detrimental to health because it’s been stripped of it’s natural nutrients; store-bought juices are essentially a high in sugar liquid.

May we repeat that store bought juices are never (ever) to be used in a detox program.

Juicing is a powerful detoxifier/cleanser.

This is how the CHIPSA Hospital (which uses the Gerson protocol in it’s treatment of cancer patients) describes the power of juicing: (Taken from: http://chipsahospital.org/gerson-juicing/)

“Vegetable juicing addresses both toxicity and deficiencies simultaneously.

“That organic vegetables are rich in nutrients goes without saying. But their ability to detoxify the body is outstanding.

“Have you ever unblocked your drains with caustic soda? Those of you who have will know the power of this compound, sodium hydroxide, in dissolving grease to the satisfying glug of the drain as it breathes its first gulp of air. Vegetable juices work in the same way. They break down to potassium hydroxide, a more powerful cleanser than sodium hydroxide. As the cells are bathed in this alkaline cleanser they take up the potassium and release the acidity (toxicity) which can be safely disposed of by the lungs and kidneys. Vegetable juicing is the only way to achieve this.”

It is widely believed that the body, on its own, cannot manage to adequately eliminate toxins that the body releases through juicing. This is where coffee enemas become absolutely crucial.

In their FAQs section the Gerson Institute warns against detoxing, especially with juicing, without the use of coffee enemas.

They along with other health practitioners advise that the body cannot handle the huge amounts of toxins released through detox programs, such as juicing for instance, without the use of coffee enemas (to aid the detoxification process).

The following was taken from the Gerson Institute’s website gerson.org

“As the juices begin rebuilding the body and encouraging toxins to be released from the cells into the bloodstream, a great deal of stress is placed upon the liver. The liver alone, especially in cancer patients, cannot deal with a sudden influx of toxins into the bloodstream. The coffee enemas increase liver filtering, greatly aiding the liver’s ability to remove serum toxins.”
