Diet #4: All Cooked Soft And Warm (B-V-B Only) Weight Reduction Liv-It
Berries-Vegetables-Beans...The key to this approach is to eat whole fiber and not have foods around you shouldn't eat. It is about trying for 100% and accepting a little less than perfection. Beware of your worst enemies that absolutely stop weight loss: chicken, breads and pastas, oatmeal and cereals, dairy products, and sweets.
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.
Have someone in the natural food store find for you the items below that you are not familiar with: Say to them "Please find for me . . .").
Any/all berries cooked on lowest heat in 1 inch of apple/peach/pear juice.
Raja's Cup/Inka coffee substitutes, any organic green or English breakfast tea.
NO: bread, baked goods including pies/cakes/cookies/muffins/bagels, oatmeal/raisin bran/other cereal, crackers or chips, milk product, rice (brown or white) or any other grain, pasta, mayonnaise, Chinese or fried food, pizza, grinders, potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams and plantain!
Lunch & Dinner:
All vegetables are cooked soft and warm. Cook on lowest click-stop for 10-45 minutes - tons/stuff yourself.
6-8 oz. (= ¾-1 coffee mug) of beans a day. Put in cooked kale, other vegetables or soups. Wild fish/free-range chicken/bison as discussed.
Fresh cooked organic beans are the best.
Seitan (made by "The Bridge") - slice and pan fry without a lid in the "sauce" below.
Tempeh, tofu salad, organic herb smoked tofu, veggie burgers or soy chicken salad.
Frozen or organic canned beans, such as navy, great northern, black, aduki, etc. - dark colored preferred.
Soft cooked fresh vegetables or frozen veggie mixes.
Ideally organic and eat as much as you wish all day long: onions, carrots, broccoli, kale, leeks, cabbage, collard greens, winter squash, daikon, burdock, summer squash, pumpkin, cauliflower, scallions, bok choy, cucumbers, mustard greens, string beans, mushrooms, carrot tops, snow peas, turnip greens, parsley, regular radishes, and celery.
No eggplant, zucchini, potatoes, spinach, swiss chard, lettuce, or much peppers/tomatoes. For gas control, change the water twice when cooking beans and/or use "Vitase® Digestion Formula" by Prevail or other digestive enzymes.
No fried foods!
Imagine (brand) Creamy Tomato Basil soup (in a box), Health Valley (brand) Minestrone or Corn and Vegetable soups. Canned/organic/low calorie/and low sodium: dilute with 1 can of water.
A delicious "sauce" is: 1 teaspoon each of toasted sesame oil + mirin (sweet rice cooking wine) + an organic tamari + 3 tablespoons of water heated in a pan and poured over your vegetables and/or beans.
Less preferred is "Molly McButter or Pam spray."
Organically grown tomato/spaghetti sauces, Nasoya brand Garden Herb &/or 1000 Island Vegi-dressings, Parsley Patch brand "Italian Blend" herbal flavoring, or "Mrs. Dash," and "Mt. Fuji Mustard."
