No one likes to diet. That means measuring, counting calories, balancing protein, carbohydrates, and fat ratios. It all gets entirely too complicated, which leads to one thing…
You shouldn’t have to live in fear of food. It’s meant to nourish, nurture, and heal your body, so why deprive yourself of valuable resources?
Your best plan of attack is a nutritional plan that burns fat. Know what to eat and what not to eat is the key to successful weight loss. Ignite Naturals has developed a nutritional guidelines that promotes natural thermogenesis (raised body temperature for fat burning) without all the counting, measuring, and feeling of being deprived.
Follow this plan and you can eat as much as you want of the right foods while losing weight.
General Nutritional Guidelines
Below are two lists: one of foods we encourage you to eat daily and one with foods we encourage you to avoid for optimal health and weight loss.
Why use this nutritional guideline?
This plan is designed as a general guideline for people living in the USA and eating in any manner; conventional, healthy or in between. This is also true for many ‘industrialized’ countries that follow a ‘western’ diet. The sad fact is that the ‘western’ diet is responsible for a lot of chronic disease.
In other words, our food is killing us. This food plan does not comply with the dictates of the hundreds of ‘diets’ currently available, but it has much in common with a lot of them. To get a specific diet that is individualized for your needs, it is best to visit a natural health professional who uses one of many diagnostic methods to determine exactly what foods your body accepts, and which ones it rejects.
Your body derives its energy from the food you eat, the beverages you drink and the lifestyle you lead. Unfortunately, a lot of the content of the Standard American Diet (SAD) contains refined and processed foods that convert too quickly to glucose (blood sugar).
When that happens, and the body has its fill of glucose, the excess sugar is stored as fat. So, the goal here is to avoid those foods, instead consuming foods that are low on the GLYCEMIC Index (www.glycemicindex.com) and in portions that do not contribute to high Glycemic load. The load factor is very important, as you may eat a small amount of a high Glycemic food without much consequence.
If you are looking for real change in your weight loss efforts, then use this as a guide toward better health. It’s not just about losing weight. Your goal should reach far beyond that, and strive to maintain a long-term healthy balanced diet and lifestyle.
