Avoid white foods. There is some scientific legitimacy to today’s lower-carb diets. Large amounts of simple carbohydrates from white flour and added sugar can wreak havoc on your blood sugar and lead to weight gain. But you shouldn’t toss out the baby with the bathwater. While avoiding sugar, white rice, and white flour, you should eat plenty of whole grain breads and brown rice. One Harvard study of 74,000 women found that those who ate more than two daily servings of whole grains were 49 percent less likely to be overweight than those who ate the white stuff.
Problem: Did you know that damage to the digestive tract is one of the most popular reasons why an individual can't lose weight? If you are craving sweets & high calorie foods all of the time, it could indicate a high likelihood of inflammation & toxicity that is interfering with your metabolism & weight loss potential.
Solution: Wipe the slate clean by detoxing with lemon & warm water first thing every morning. You should also eat plenty of fruits & veggies (I get mine through Green Vibrance - to the right) to ramp up your fiber intake that will promote bowel movements. Also, take a daily pro-biotic to replace your body with the GOOD bacteria needed for effective, healthy digestion.
