My Top 10 Eating Habits to help Lose Bodyfat, Cellulite, and Weight
Posted Jun 14 2013 1:46am
One of the reasons people can't take off and keep off weight is the majority of our food is "fake food", which the body stores as bodyfat and cellulite , since the body was never designed to process so much of what we eat.
The Good: After your "eating revolution", you will find thetaste of food more pleasing than ever, an you can eat as much as you like since you will be eating real food the body knows how to process as energy as opposed to store as fat.
The Bad: Healthy eating is expensive, and requires several lifestyle changes (although, watching 9 or 10 pounds drop off in a few weeks will motivate one to continue)
The Ugly: I think it can't be done with most commercial store bought products, even so called healthy products such as "Balance Bars", "Fiber One Cereal", "Vitamin Water", "Natural" this and that, and all the rest. Too many products promoted as healthy, but hidden unnatural ingredients the body will store as fat.

Miscellaneous other notes that came to my head on this topic………………….
Once you drop 10 or 20 and you body is re-programmed healthy eating, I found you can cheat when you want. And my desire to eat healthy came right back for the mext meal.
I had a char broiled polish sausage the other day [sorry vegan friends], but that urge hits me once or twice a year,at picnics and such, and I'm back to my routine with no effort. Not forcing myself, my body just prefers healthy food over junk. No discipline needed.
You have to find out what are the truths and myths of dropping bodyfat as they relate to your own biochemistry. Along with what I mentioned in the list of eating healthy fats VERY liberally, like eggs and Coconut Oil, I found out that eating before bed is irrelevant to me, I do it all the time
I'm not sure how you can naturally drop weight naturally without preparing your own meals and snacks. If someone has another solution leave a comment below.
Don't start off trying to identify with a certain diet, i.e. Paleo, Gaps, Vegan, Vegetarian, let you unique style come to you.
Even with 15-20 pasture raised eggs a week, I haven't gained an inch on my waist in 7 years, and my cholesterol scores are perfect, my Good Cholesterol was an amazingly high 80, and bad cholesterol was an amazing low 79 !!!!
Your body can become addicted to healthy food just like junk food, and eventually will hate when you put junk food in it. When you get there, you will see "discipline" is not necessary. My classic example is "sugar cravings". I avoid bad sweets with no effort whatsoever now.
Don't beat yourself up if you stray away for a day or at a picnic or Christmas or whatever. I pig out like everyone else on these occasions, but my body doesn't like it when I do it consistently. If you successfully dropped 12 pounds, you won't gain it back from 1 bag of fries.
It worked my ex girlfriend to buy all her food for the whole month [except for veggies], I made her snacks (coconut cake, quality muffins, trail mix) for when she wanted a treat, she dropped 14 pounds that month. Just to prove the point of controlling your ingredients.
If you can, read Brendan Brazier's book Thrive, or at least skim through it. I'm not a vegan like him, but great book. He bought to me the concept of the more nutrition in the food, the less food your body will ask for, and vice versa……..
I'm not hating on "Weight Watchers" or "Jenny Craig", "Lean Cuisine" and all the rest, but I think a person can do a better job on their own, and tailor their healthy diet to the things they love to eat.
The real reason I think people "pig out" at "Old Country Buffett" or wherever, is that there is no nutrition in the food, and the brain keeps sending your body signals to keep eating to get the minimum nutrition. Conversely, when you body is truly nourished (as opposed to filled up by volume), the brain will send signals to stop eating…..automatically.
