I know many over-weight people who are starving because they are not consuming the right foods.
They go on yo-yo diets, but these diets are not satisfying or satiating because they involve deprivation, which is NOT sustainable.
How do we lose weight and keep it off without feeling deprived or starved? By implementing the 90/10 rule.
Here’s how it works: 90% of the time, we eat whole foods and the remaining 10%, we eat whatever we want.
This means that we can indulge (i.e., over-eat) during Thanksgiving, Christmas and/or whatever holiday we celebrate because they fall within the 10%.
The very important part of this rule is to make certain that 60% of that 90% is alkaline foods (i.e., veggies) because these types of foods are what satiate us, keep us healthy and reduce our cravings for “comfort,” empty calorie foods.
We have moved away from eating veggies for two primary reasons:
1. The food companies do not make money by selling vegetables. They make money by selling processed foods, which is what they push on us through sophisticated marketing schemes.
2. We are so busy and stressed that it is very difficult to take the time to consume even the minimal amount of 9 servings per day.
That’s why fresh, organic juice is soooo important to drink. Just 16 oz gives us approximately 2 times the minimum daily requirement of fruits and veggies.
