Congratulations on taking part in my 28 Day Food for Life Plan. To be here tells me what you are currently doing is not working the way you want it to, you have lost your motivation and discipline and are now needing a kickstart to get back on track or, you are wanting to “tidy up” your meal choices and serve sizes to allow yourself to keep moving forward.
Whatever your reason to take part in this 28 Day Food For Life Plan, I need you to understand that this IS NOT A DIET. This is not something you go on for 28 days and then when finished, you fill the pantry with high processed, low nutrition, refined foods that simply send you right back to where you are today.
My 28 Day Food for Life Plan is an introduction, a taste (if you will) to the disciplines and principles that best serve you if you are wanting:
- A balanced gut
- To manage your weight
- Lots of energy
- No joint inflammation
- Regular blood pressure
- Improved sleep
- And more…..
What you choose to eat and drink is just that, your choice. There is an abundance of foods available to you but it’s understanding what foods serve you best because depending on what you choose, foods and meals contain different levels of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.
So, to be on my 28 Day Food For Life Plan means that something needs to change. Some habit or belief around food or beverages requires a different approach otherwise, if you keep doing what you currently are doing, you will obviously remain the same.
Permanent change doesn’t come easy. It will happen when you appreciate that food’s purpose (food includes beverages) is to nourish you. Not fill your tummy and make you feel satisfied or uncomfortable. Not kill the sugar craving that may occur many times a day. Food is fuel. It is the petrol that runs through our engine and gives us the energy to move forward. Unlike a vehicle though, filling the tank to capacity is a dis-service because the body has to work so very hard at each fill, to process what you have provided and then use it, burn it through the day, or store it.
There is a balance as to how much food your body needs. Personally, I believe you should fuel your body approximately every 5 hours. It is recommended humans are at their best, and healthiest when they receive between 8 and 9 quality sleep hours a day. Take that from 24 hours in a day, and you are left with near three equal frames of 5 hours a day.
So, say you have breakfast at 7.30 am, lunch at 12.30 pm, and the evening meal at 6.30 pm, you have a great balance between food consumption, digestion, and use for energy and functionality. If the food choices at those three allocated fuel stops are healthy and nutritious, along with plenty of clean drinking water, then cravings and hunger should not be present.
My 28 Day Food For Life Plan is sound, sensible, and suitable if you are wanting to work toward a re-balance of your hormones, gut health, energy, and weight. This Plan is simple, easy to follow, and educational. If you believe in my principles of wellness here, you will have found the formula to choosing the foods to serve you for life.
In the first two weeks of my 28 Day, Food For Life Plan is a sensible detox system that will balance your gut flora. We will focus on digestion, healthy elimination, pre-biotics, and probiotics. The remainder of the plan is to continue what you have learned but to go a little deeper into flushing your liver and cells for improved functionality. All of this will be fabulous for balancing your hormones and boosting your energy. Are you ready? Let’s do this.
