Tips for General Health Improvement & Weight Loss

Regardless of your diet, you can improve your health with various practices.

  • Supersize Your Fresh Fruits & Veggies, Cut back on everything else.
  • Eliminate or minimize unhealthy foods. Substitute meat, gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, etc. with whole grain rice & bread, wheat & gluten free pasta, nut or rice milk, sprouted bread, steamed or raw vegetable dishes, agave syrup or honey.
  • Buy organically grown whenever possible.
  • Incorporate at least one liquid meal with fresh greens, & any other fruits & vegetables, into your diet at least once a day. This can be a blended smoothie or soup or juices. Try to consume this alone, without other food. Many find a smoothie to be a great replacement & energizer instead of caffeine.
  • Eat 4-6 small meals day a day instead of 2-3 large meals. Eating frequently will help regulate & boost your metabolism, keeps your blood sugar stable, & your body operating at maximum efficiency. By eating smaller portions of food more often you will feel less hungry in between meals & not deprived. When people only eat, 2-3 large meals, their bodies go into starvation mode & try to hold on to calories. By eating every 3-4 hours you keep your body from storing as many calories (as fat) because your body has steady supply of food to use for energy. When high or all raw, however, your body ends up needing less food & you can often cut back on food intake after a period of time.
  • Stop eating 3 hr minimum prior to sleep & try not to have too many hard-to-digest foods late in the day, such as fats, dairy, meat & grains.
  • Drink large amounts of pure water per day-usually 8-10 8 oz glasses is good for most, though some will require more, some less. If you eat a lot of foods high in water content, you may not need as much water. The easiest way to make sure you’re consuming enough water is to always have a water bottle or thermos by your side that you continuously sip throughout the day. A water filtration sports bottle is helpful for mostly chemical-free water, especially when you can’t access bottled or filtered water. Water helps flush toxins, so be sure to drink extra when consuming alcohol.
  • Movement: 30-60 minutes of exercise daily, 5 days minimum. If you’re inactive for most of the day such as sitting at a desk or in front of a computer, you should try to get additional movement throughout the day in 10-20 minute increments.
  • Organic, Whole-Food Supplements: Regardless of your diet, supplementing is an excellent way of ensuring you’re obtaining enough of all nutrients. Supplements can also be helpful when curing specific illnesses & may speed up the process. 3 main supplements everyone should use for maintenance purposes are probiotics, digestive enzymes & a green food powder. If not doing a raw diet, an additional multivitamin/mineral formula may be necessary or double up on the powder. Try to get supplements that don’t have unhealthy additives in them. For Illness/Emergency situations: Besides increasing probiotics & green powder, It’s good to have an immune formula on hand that contains echinacea, vitamin c, garlic, etc. for those times when either you feel you’re about to get sick or your immune system is compromised. If you consume something very toxic that is causing you illness, the quickest way to get it out of your body is with charcoal capsules. It’s not recommended to use often though. Even better is to use a cleanse formula such as an magnesium oxygen cleanse.
