Have you had those extra pounds seemingly creep up on you with no apparently obvious reason? It’s not as if you feel like you’ve been eating more than usual, and certainly not enough to show up so strikingly on the scale.
Most all of us have experienced this at least once in our lifetime. It takes us by surprise and leaves us in a slight state of shock because it doesn’t seem as though we have done anything to deserve this extra poundage
I am no exception. Like millions of others, I have personally experienced the rollercoaster ride of losing and regaining a large amount of weight (50 pounds to be exact). Because it is such a widespread problem, there doesn’t seem to be any area of health in which there is more time, effort, and money spent than in the area of weight loss
So even though those of us who are trying to lose weight decrease food intake and exercise more, long-term weight loss still seems to elude many of us. The common scenario is to initially lose weight but soon gain it back. In fact, in about 90% of cases people regain all the weight they lost, and oftentimes end up heavier than when they started!
Healthy Weight Loss — Without Dieting
factors, no single factor is more important to our health than the food we eat. Because the concept of practicing a healthier way of eating is so amazingly simple, healthy eating can easily be overlooked as a means to resolving our problem of being overweight. Yet, promoting the intake of nutrient-rich, health-promoting, and satisfying foods—like the World’s Healthiest Foods–can prove to be one of the most powerful ways to affect better health and healthy weight loss
The effective one-two punch toward better health and healthy weight loss comes from increasing our intake of nutrient-rich foods, such as the World’s Healthiest Foods, and reducing our intake of nutrientpoor foods.
This is what I focus upon in this book, Healthy Weight Loss Without Dieting. In addition to describing why nutrient-rich World’s Healthiest Food can help you lose weight and gain better health, I’ve also included a Healthy Weight Loss Eating Plan that takes the guesswork out of preparing 4 weeks’ worth of meals that will set you on your way to your weight loss and wellness-fulfilling goals.
In the beginning, when you start on the Plan, you may feel deprived when you can’t eat your favorite refined, nutrient-poor foods. But after two weeks of eating more nutrient-rich foods, you will find that your “craving” for refined, nutrient-poor foods will decrease, as they will begin to taste too sugary, too salty, and too fatty you will then begin to enjoy the more delicate flavors of fresh, whole, nutrient-rich foods, like the crispiness of fresh salads, the delicate sweetness of blueberries, the robust flavors of high-energy vegetables, and the creamy richness of almonds.
