Eat Healthy Food That Feels Good To You And Restore Your Natural Weight

I Joined the Group "Eat Feel Good Food | Restore your natural weight & abilities"

Lilou writes:

I am creating this group as a place to share foods and recipes that feel good to our body, to consequently, attract our natural weight. The principle is simple: Eat food that feels good when you eat it but also after eating it. Ask your body if this feels good. Please share your experiment with this group! I believe that it is our mission to take care of our bodies, eat what is right so we can be more intuitive, have more energy, vibrate higher, attract more and love more!

******************************************************************************************************************************************

I think this is a great idea- watching your body to see what "good food to you" actually does to your body. I am currently in the process of losing weight. I am on a kind of homemade Mediterranean Diet as far as what I eat. I love meat and protein, so for me, the low carb type diet works. I eat lean sources of protein, vegetables, some complex carbs, and I drink half my body weight in ounces of water a day.

The other thing I do is walk 45 minutes to an hour minimum 6 days a week. I take my dog. It doesn't matter if it's first thing in the morning or late in the evening to me, as long as I do it. I don't think about it, I just do it. Now it has become something Iook forward to and can't go without. I started this 100 day challenge on 02/15/08 and made a big part of it this time my weight and my health. I have made diet and exercise a priority and it has paid off. In 2 months I have lost 25 pounds and 4 inches off my waist. My pants keep falling off. I'm gonna have to get new pants and belts soon.

The other thing that has made a huge difference is that I eat all the time. I eat 5 or more times a day, small portions, 3 meals , plus 2 or more snacks always with protein, and I drink tons of water. I let myself have my coffee for caffeine again, but I drink green tea and other teas during the day. I have cut out all sugars in my diet except for some fruit. I don't feel deprived because I eat every 2 hours up until 3 hours before bedtime.

As far as my body goes, I am hot all the time. I can feel my metabolism changing. I have tons of energy, I feel better, I sleep better, have less stress or deal with it better, and I am happier with myself. I think this is important because the way you feel about yourself affects everything you do. Just a simple thing like smiling, doing something good for another person, or going for a walk can have a huge impact on how your day is going to manifest itself. Your attitude often shapes your destiny day by day. If I don't feel like walking, my dog reminds me, and that's all I need to get up and do it. I go for my walk for today.

I have noticed that after not eating junk, processed, prepared, or fast food for a while now has made a huge difference in what my body feels and craves in terms of food. If you eat better for a short time, and you exercise, your body will tell you what it wants and what it needs. I eat lots of protein- fish, chicken, soy, or others in small amounts, vegetables, salads, olive oil, fruit, unleavened wheat bread sometimes, whole grains, legumes, nuts, brown and wild rice, lots of whey protein and water, and soy milk. I eat other things I like in small amounts to taste, but this is the bulk of what I eat now. I love it and don't feel deprived because I'm always full. If you eat every 2 hours up until 3 hours before bedtime, you will always be full and never hungry, and you will lose weight if you do some form of exercise.

I plan to lose close to 75 more pounds or more. Whatever my body wants to do. I have lost 25 pounds and 4 inches off my waist in 2 months. I know progress will be slower now, but I get excited if I lose 1-2 lbs. a week. I know it took me 10 years or more to get this way, eating tons of stuff. That was a lot of work. Compared to that, this is easy. It's a lot less work to be healthy if you just let it happen for you. I don't eat out much, I eat at home and make my meals to take with me. When I do eat out, it has to be healthy, and I eat less in terms of portions. If good food costs more, I'm gonna eat out less to save money . I think it's important to have a day off too. One day a week I don't have to walk, and I eat whatever I want. The funny thing is, I want what's good for me more often now than before. My body wants healthier food. That's a good feeling.

I started all this when I started this 100 day challenge 2 months ago. I also signed the Oprah/Bob Greene Best Life Challenge with myself at that time. I taped it to my desk so I see it every day when I wake up and go into my office. I think each person is different and must do whatever works for them. I will keep you all up to date on my progress as time goes on.

Here's to your own success and your best life.

Peace.

Sunsurfer.

"The other thing I do is walk 45 minutes to an hour minimum 6 days a week...It doesn't matter if it's first thing in the morning or late in the evening to me, as long as I do it.

At the beginning when it wasn't a pleasurable habit, how did you get yourself to do it?

Weight has been a life-long issue with me. Something I heard lately that you allude to in this post is that when we overeat, it squelches our Chi, our vibration is lower. I never thought of it that way, but it sure feels right! Good luck on your journey!

You're doing awesome Sunsurfer; a true inspiration for myself and others. I also put weight and health as one of my goals. I've started very slowly on this so progress has been slow. Reading your post gives me a push to say that I can do it do!

I just started a new thing. I will start my day off with a bagel; at lunchtime I make a very small salad with good things like walnuts, chicken strips, beets, cucumbers. For dinner, I pour the following into the blender: An all natural berries drink, a yogart, banana, strawberries and blend it up into a frothy drink. I may also repeat a salad. The bagel could be substituted with a bowl of oatmeal. So far it is working for me, I am not hungry and feel great.

How interesting that now you don't eat as much junk food, you don't crave it as much. It's as if you've cleared all that crap out of your system and now you can hear your body's signals about what it really wants. The signals were probably there before but masked by the energy highs/dips and mood highs/dips that refined sugar puts your body through. Thank you for drawing this to my attention!
