Diet #5: High Fiber/High Protein/Weight Reduction Liv-It
It is ideal to lose weight by cutting back. Chew each bite 15 times. Sit, think, and chew. Do not watch television, talk to anyone, listen to the radio, or read the newspaper. Think and count.
The key to this approach is whole fiber, and not having around foods you should not eat. This is about "direction, not perfection." It is about trying for 100% and accepting not doing it 100%. Beware of your worst enemies that stop weight loss, which are chicken, breads and pastas, dairy products and sweets.
Unlimited cantaloupe/watermelon/honeydew, plus blue berries/strawberries and grapefruit ("Florida's Natural" brand Ruby Red premium grapefruit juice.
Inka coffee substitute, Kukicha, and/or bancha green teas.
NO bread, baked goods including pies/cakes/cookies/muffins/bagels, cereal, crackers or chips, milk product, rice (brown or white) or any other grain, pasta or mayonnaise, Chinese or fried food, pizza, grinders, potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams and plantain!
Use a carrot peeler to peel off all the colored skin front both watermelon and grapefruit. Discard the skin. Then grind in a food processor the remaining rind plus any/all of the above recommended fruit. Eat these fruits with this rind. This creates an "active disinterest" in food and eliminates your hunger for bread, rice, chicken and dairy.
