Thoughts: How you lose weight on The Earth Diet.
When you eat only foods that nature intended, your body weight is restored to it's natural state. I was never fat, but previous to The Earth Diet I had excess weight stored from the years of accumulated artificial sugar, processed foods, preservatives and chemicals!
Did you know the average person eats about 2 Kg of food additives a year!!!
It always seems to be that extra weight that would not shift. Once I cut this from my lifestyle and live eating only foods naturally provided by the earth, my body completely transformed, feeling healthy and energetic, being able to sleep less, eat less and yet be fulfilled, and my digestive system is now a fully functioning operating organ - hehe! No more blockages! And now that my bowels are cleaner I am able to actually absorb the nutrients! Now I eat what ever I like when I like, including chocolate! Real chocolate made with cacao beans, no sugar and no dairy!
- When you swap foods with sugar, preservatives, and artificial flavours to natural whole foods from the earth, their is no way for it to stick in your body, food flows in you and out of you, your digestive system works harmoniously and you are flourishing with vitamins and minerals and left with more energy!
- The Earth Diet focuses on lightness - you become what you think about most and when you focus on lightness rather than heaviness, that is who you are!
- The Earth Diet gives your digestive system a break, as you are no longer eating foods that provide you with no nutritional value. It is these foods that the digestive system uses up so much energy to digest. When it is not wasting the energy on digesting foreign sugars and flavourings, and instead eating nutritious foods, your body is absorbing all the vitamins and you are left with more energy and vitality to do other things, in which you are most likely to be active and burn fat!
- When you swap regular store bought chocolate with real chocolate made from cacao beans, no sugar, no dairy and no artificial anythings you will drop all that 'chocolate' weight you have gathered over the years!
- Your body becomes in a alkaline state in which weight gain is not possible. Weight gain is created when your body is overloaded with food and chemicals and hence acidic.
- The Earth Diet has a lot of raw recipes. Raw foods are alive foods. Science proves that cooking not only destroys nutrition and enzymes, but chemically changes foods from the substances needed for health into free-radicals and poisons that destroy our health!
- The Earth Diet isn't a quick fix - it is a lifestyle transformation. So you don't lose weight with uncomfortable detox symptoms only to put it on again after the 'diet'. Once you try your own Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups you won't want to eat store bought Reese's Cups again!
- You will also experience an 'emotional' detox on The Earth Diet and realize your true potential; powerful beyond measure!- you learn to separate yourself from the voice that has you binge on sugary junk and fast foods!
- When you juice fresh fruits and vegetables, you absorb the vitamins and minerals at cellular level.
- Your natural fat burning ability is recreated.
- As whole foods from the earth are higher in nutrition and lower in calories! So you can eat more, absorb more nutrients and lose weight!
- The main source of fats on The Earth Diet nuts and seeds, as well as avocado and coconut butter. These fats are easily broken down in the body and do not store! So cellulite will dissolve!
- Weightloss is not complicated on The Earth Diet and there is no calorie counting. When you are in a state of well being excess weight flows off you!
- Consume as much as you can of the 'right nutrition' and you will never put on weight
