I don’t take any prescription medications, but there are some foods I look at as medicine.

You’ve decided to cut carbs because you think it will help you lose weight and control your blood sugar levels.
Well, you’re right on both accounts, but if you stop eating carbs, what’s left to eat?
There’s no denying that high carb foods are fun foods. They include bread, cereal, potatoes, french fries, pizza, chips, candy, and milk chocolate and the list goes on.
But, the evidence is clear that high carb foods keep blood sugar and insulin elevated. And, we know that the more insulin you have in your blood, the more fat storage you have going on inside your body.
So, if you want to lose weight, you must limit or completely avoid the starchy and refined carbs I mentioned earlier. But, where does that leave you?
Let’s take a look at how to cut carbs without starving or hating every minutes of your diet…

Let me show you how to rate your hunger using a hunger scale. It’s a simple trick that will turn you into a calm and confident eater who easily makes smart eating decisions.

Have you ever considered how much toxic food we put into our bodies, day in and day out?
If you think about it very carefully, you’d be surprised—and probably scared out of your wits. That’s because we actually take in so much toxic stuff you wonder how you’re able to get through it all.
The fact is that you don’t go through that daily ordeal unscathed. It takes a toll on your body. It stresses your digestive tract and overworks your immune system.
That’s why the idea of a vegetable detox makes so much sense. We take breaks from work, with short rest periods during the workday and an entire day or two to relax during the weekend.
That’s also what we need to do with our bodies. We need time to let our system get rid of the toxins, just as we get rid of the stress and tension during vacations. Vegetables are cleansing foods that can help our body’s detox.
