Day 27: So close! plus Alternative to Juice Fast.

Day 27

Day 27

So, for those of you who want the results, but think a juice fast is a bit too extreme for you, I’ve been reading about great health results with the Engine 2 Diet lifestyle changes.

One really interesting idea is that people consistently eat the same physical amount of food every day, regardless of calories (not counting holidays or special events).  So if you can substitute food with higher nutrients but fewer calories, you’ll feel like you’re still eating the same amount of food = no starving feeling while dieting.  Plus, if you’re choosing lots of fruits and vegetables, you’re getting more nutrition also.  So, it’s a lifestyle change where you make healthy meals, eat all you want until you’re full and still see all your numbers improve.

If you’re curious, there is a free 28-day guide on his website you can download that explains the healthy eating changes, has some free recipes and a few inspirational stories at the end.  Basically, people with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol, who are on numerous medications and only getting worse, are able to finally see improvements by changing what they eat.  I’m planning on incorporating some of the recipes into our family’s meals.  I feel like we do pretty well eating fruit, whole grains, beans, and lentils.  But, somehow the vegetables don’t always make it to the table.  So, I’m excited to try some new meal ideas.  Plus, I’d like to experiment with the no added oils and stick to using nuts, avocados, etc.

And now is a great time for me to experiment with healthier recipes, since any and all food looks AMAZING!!  🙂
