So I am currently reviewing a type of diet, called "the warrior diet" it revolves around how we have evolved over several centuries. Its creator Ori states that:
1. we were never made to eat processed foods
2. we were never made to drink alcohol
3. we were never made to eat trans fats and high sugar foods
5. we were never made to eat several times a day
And he is pretty much right, the reason is that KILLS your gut health (G.I.) And it doesnt matter what you eat if you cannot absorb it. Plus as we age our gut health deteriorates hence the bloatedness and gas most people suffer from.
So how do you fix it? Well I am currently doing it (and trying to kick caffiene, LOOK OUT!)
1. perform a juice fast consisting of three feedings
each juice would consist of 2 large carrots, 1/2 cucumber, 2 celery stalks and 1 beet. Just did my first one and it is actually pretty good!
Then at night you eat one large dinner consisting of a green salad first, then a generous serving of protein and a starch.
I will try it all week and see what happens. It is falling in line with much current research (although Ori's book and warrior diet have been around for sometime) that juicing is like putting your gut on steroids, helps speed up the fat loss process right away and give your organs a rest from so much work on digestion.
Plus your grocery bill goes way down!! I will keep you posted.
