6 steps to a Healthy Diet

Food combination

Eat only starches (breads, pastas, etc) alone with a salad at each meal. Any protein type food should be eaten with a salad. Keep your food combinations simple. Your body needs to really deplete itself in order to process so many foods at once. If you want to learn more, think about going on a raw food diet. Raw food is the only food that has all it’s own enzymes intact.

Eat fruit on an empty stomach

It only takes a maximum of 30 minutes for your stomach to process any type of fruit. If you eat bread right after consuming fruit, then the stomach would have to take longer to digest all the food and can take up to 4 hours. Hence, the fruit which has been consumed earlier will rot in your stomach while waiting for the complete digestion of the bread. The more rotten food you have the more indigestion it causes and fermentation in your gut. Think gas and weight gain.

Don’t eat after 8 pm

Naturally, eating late would mean your stomach will have to work overtime by digesting what you ate, and this would mean more energy needed for digesting and less energy used to repair damaged cells in your body. You must also know that blood pooling in your stomach is also the cause your body creating excess amounts of adrenaline which can lead to a sleepless night for you. If you don’t get enough sleep this throws off the thyroid which controls your metabolism, which controls how much weight you gain. See the cycle? Sleep is critical.

Replace your breakfast menu with fruit

Try eating nothing but fruit before noon. Make sure you give yourself 30 minutes after you eat the fruit to digest. You might also have a raw fat with your fruit like avocado pieces to slow sugar absorption and keep you fuller longer.

Use enzymes

Simply put, enzymes help facilitate digestion. The more you supplement your diet with enzymes during each meal, the better digestion you will have and the more weight you will lose. The more you eliminate the less you weigh, the more energy you have and the happier you are. Uncooked foods have all their enzymes intact so you’re not required to take enzymes with raw foods.

Eat a salad with every meal

Make sure to eat a salad with all your meals. Eat the salad first if possible. The salad helps to start the enzymatic process, so your body has the tools to start the digestive process and your digestive system will be ready for the cooked food. It also lets you feel fuller than you actually are, making less room in your stomach for the heavier foods.
