1.Take supplements to keep myself nutritionally balanced.
2. Drink 64 oz of water or carb-free fluids a day to help with flushing of waste products.
3, Eat often, but don't eat carbs other then those for stage 1. Eat breakfast within one hour of waking. Eat a snack before bedtime and if I wake up during the night...another snack. NEVER go longer then five hours without a balanced meal. If possible...graze all day long by eating something every two to three hours.
4. MOVE and exercise 1/2 hour a day above the normal daily activity.
5. De-Stress on a regular basis by taking a moment to think peaceful thoughts first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Stop for a few minutes during the day to think positive and peaceful thoughts.
During step one for eight weeks I may eat lean protein, healthy fats, and neutral vegetables any time in reasonable amounts.
My pancreas over-produces insulin in response to simple and complex carbs and my liver over-releases glycogen. This results in overstoring body fat. I am striving to reinstate normal carbohydrate metabolism. The first eight weeks will work internally to rest and rehabilitate my liver and pancreas to allow for the normal metabolism of carb and glycogen release in the future. This step will allow my body to burn fat once again on the inside and outside.
The role of Insulin is to break down carbs and store the excess as body fat for future use. With over-production of insulin...the carbs are not used as intended for energy, stored on and in the body too readily, and this sits me up for another carb craving.
Wow, I have only gotten the 11th and 12th planned out for my meals in my food diary. This is harder then I thought. LOL It is difficult to get in my full calories again yet I feel I will be eating non-stop.
