3 Nutritional Changes I have made.
Thursday, April 07, 2011
Hello all. Still here and going stronger than ever before! I have not blogged all week as it was Michaela's first birthday and so things have been busy! We are leaving tomorrow for another party with the family up in Dallas. I am losing and doing GREAT! Now at 27 lbs lost since Jan 1st!! I was so surprised how well things are going, in the past 10 days alone I have lost 5.2 lbs! See what clean eating can do!!!! IT WORKS!!!!
I was asked today by a friend what are the 3 nutritional changes I have made recently which has helped me shed the pounds...
1. Fiber! My favorite blend is shown in the picture above, Garden for Life Raw Fiber and Super seed. I have always had a high fiber diet but ever since December I started really focusing on the sources of my fiber. Instead of buying high fiber things I switched to plant and legume based sources. Some of the ingredients of these are....Garbanzo bean sprouts, Quinoa sprouts, Adzuki sprouts, Chia seeds, Flax seeds, Amaranth sprouts, Lentil sprouts....and so on. I use these two on my oatmeal, yogurt with berries and of course my shakes!
2. My trio I have grown to LOVE! Raw Cacao, Maca root and Goji berries. Do these have a direct effect on my weight, we may never know. All I know is that I have been adding these daily and have seen a HUGE difference in my energy levels, hunger and overall well being. So I say, if it is working, don't change a thing! Whatever they are doing, I love it!!!
3. TEA, TEA and more TEA!!! I drink about a gallon of water a day along with around 64 oz or so of tea. My go to teas are Yerba Mate, Oolong and Double Matcha. I know for a fact that these have made a HUGE difference for me during the day. Forget juice, diet soda and drink tea!
I of course have more but these are a few of the things I have changed. I am always learning and reading more, trying to further this journey I am currently on. I have a long way to go and I pray I never stop striving for more!
