Low Glycemic Fruits
All berries are the best fruit to consume for weight loss. Fruits are full of water which helps flush out toxins. They also help with digestions and have lots of nutrients, fiber and vitamins essential for good health.
Fill your refrigerator with organic green leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, alfalfa, chard, and arugula. These veggies help with digestion and support the liver as they are full of chlorophyll which helps rid the body of those harmful toxins that surround us.
Lemons and Limes
Jump start your day and flush out nasty toxins that cause weight gain by squeezing 1/2 a lemon or lime in 8 oz of warm or room temperature water and drink it down. You’ll be surprised at how much energy you’ll have.
The sprout holds all of the vitamins and minerals that the full grown plant holds so you can eat more of the sprouts and get extremely high amounts of antioxidants that it provides.
Studies prove that green tea helps us lose weight as it’s antioxidants washes fat away. Try matcha tea as it’s the entire tea ground up and is much more powerful.
Although I don’t recommend beans for weight loss most of the time, mung beans are necessary as they are easy to digest and they actually absorb toxins from your intestines! They are yummy as well.
Eat your way thin with veggies! Raw is best and lightly steamed is ok as well. They truly set the foundation for a healthy life as they give you life with their vitamins, minerals, fiber and more. Try them raw or even juiced (I juice in a vitamix so I get all the fiber as well) onions, carrots, artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, kale, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, garlic, beet, turmeric, oregano and more.
Seeds and Nuts
Nuts make the bestest snacks in the world! Just don’t eat more than 1 to 2 oz at a time which is the hardest part because they are so yummy. They are full of good fats and protein which keep you satiated. Combine them with some veggies and you have a complete meal. Please avoid nut butters that have added sugars, read your labels thoroughly and check the expiration dates.
Omega 3 oils such as fish oil, flax seed oil, walnut oils, hemp seeds, avocados are fantastic to help support the brain, lower inflammation (pain) as well as eliminating toxins as they lubricate the intestinal walls. Include an Omega 3 supplement to your life as well as eating sardines, fatty fish such as salmon.
