Do you hope and believe there's a "plan" out there that will truly help you conquer the yo-yo dieting roller coaster you've been riding? I do believe that there is a combination out there that will bring our body back into its desired balance for each and every one of us. So I have to tell you about this nutritionist I've seen twice on TV in the last couple of weeks. I saw her again a couple of days ago on a morning news talk show. Here's the dish:
In her recently published book, nutrition expert Lyn-Genet Recitas reveals the surprising truth behind what actually makes people pack on the pounds. Carbs and portion sizes, it turns out, are not the problem. Foods that are revered by traditional weight loss programs, such as turkey, eggs, cauliflower, beans, and tomatoes, may be healthy in a vacuum, but when combined with each person's unique chemistry, they can cause a toxic reaction that triggers weight gain, premature aging, inflammation, and a host of health problems including constipation, migraines, joint pain, and depression.
The immune system's response to an inflammatory diet diverts the body's energy from healing and repair and allows whatever is latent in our genetic makeup to "kick up" whatever is chronic (arthritis, migraines, depression) and become worse.
Here"s a list of the Reactive Foods:
Chronic inflammation facilitates the aging process because it floods tissues with free radicals and promotes the destruction of normal cells. Chronic low-grade inflammation contributes to the aging process, and research shows that it is a major contributor to the aging of the cardiovascular and nervous system. Inflammation is now recognized as one of the key risk factors for heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol and stroke and cognitive and neurological disorders. We know that this is true. . .
She explins that our bodies are naturally reactive to certain foods, and everyone is not the same. One of her trigger foods is eggs. Think about how many foods contain eggs in one form or another. It's interesting how many people followed the program, and when one of their reactive "trigger" foods was introduced, their bodies reacted immediately. One of these reactions is weight gain!
She has introduced a groundbreaking 20-day program in her new book , "The Plan: Eliminate the Surprising "Healthy" Foods That Are Making You Fat- and Lose Weight Fast".
Supposedly it helps readers interactively to finally unlock the mystery behind what does and does not work for their individual body. It contains detailed meal plans, recipes, and effective, personalized advice.
She says that you will discover how to:
* Lose a half a pound a day while enjoying generous servings of foods you love
* Identify your hidden trigger foods that are causing weight gain and inflammation, among other symptoms
* Build a personalized healthy foods list that promotes rapid weight loss
* Avoid feeling bloated, tired, or unhealthy again!
She did an interview a couple of weeks ago on the Dr. Oz show. I saw it and seeing her again and listening to her has got me thinking that there might be something to this. Here's the link:
If you have time, watch it, and I'd love to know your thoughts on it when you comment. My interest is peaked after listening to her twice now. I am on the fence . I'm very intrigued, but by the same token, skeptical. But I do know firsthand that homeopathy works. It's amazing how quickly our bodies respond to what they know and need.
That keeps creeping back in to dampen my skepticism.
Here's the link to her book on Amazon if you're the least bit interested:
I'm IN NO WAY promoting this one way or the other. I just have found the possibility of her theory intriguing. I wanted to post it to bring it to your attention " for informational and educational purposes". Many of us have tried almost every "plan" out there at one time or another. It might be something that you'd be willing to try to see if it would help with some of your individual chronic conditions, or just stoke the fires of metabolism to melt off some excess weight. And heck, who wouldn't want to lose the weight faster and feel better? Who knows, this might be the key your body has been waiting for.
Thanks for stopping by, and please let me know what you think to help me get off this stupid fence!
