This is a condensed version of my Eat2Heal Plan that is outlined in the previous post:
Welcome to my website/blog where I am posting information about eating to heal the human body plus other tips to develop a healthy lifestyle.
I am all about eating good whole natural food (with maybe a few crucial herbs and supplements and essential oils) rather than eating low fat and exercising my legs off. (Literally…my knees have been destroyed by all the extensive exercise in which I have participated) After pursuing health & weight control for 50 years through this so-called exercise, I have come to the conclusion that if we eat a proper balance of good protein – low glycemic carbohydrates – and non-processed fats, we will be better off by having optimal energy, a more balanced metabolism, a stronger immune system and be less compromised with diseases.
Of course we also need to eliminate foods that are toxic as much as possible which include all processed & refined food (sugars-fats etc) as well as avoid environmental toxins.
A good detox now and again will greatly aid in kicking off your journey and helping to curb the cravings for unhealthy foods as well. There are many ineffective detox plans so be careful. It is also important to be aware of the withdrawal affects of detoxing which can be quite annoying to experience: headaches – sore throat – anxiety – irritability – nausea – etc.
3 Steps to Healing – – –
These steps will be reinforced & validated in my “Eat 2 Heal Program” and throughout the various posts and articles I share on this website.
