For people who like easy weight loss, there are three strategies I like to bring to your attention. Firstly, they have to take on a different life-style in regards to their diet. |
Natural Hygiene is one part of the life-style you have to adopt.It will teach you how to eat.
Natural hygiene is the most remarkable approach to care and upkeep of the human body. The loss of weight is only one of the benefits of Natural Hygiene as a life-style.
The basic foundation of Natural Hygiene is that the body is always striving for health and that it achieves this by continuously cleansing itself from deleterious waste material.
It is the science of understanding the effect that food has on the length and quality of the life of a human being. It's focus is on prevention and healthful living.
It teaches people how to eliminate the cause of their health problems, rather than constantly battle the effects of continuously violating natural laws.
The underlying basis of Natural Hygiene is that the body is self-cleansing, self-healing and self-maintaining. It is based on the idea that all the healing power of the universe is in the human body; that nature is always correct and cannot be improved upon.
The Natural Body Cycles
These cycles are based on rather obvious functions of the human body. On a daily basis we take in food (appropriation), we absorb and use some of that food, (assimilation), and we get rid of what we don't use (elimination).
Although each of these three functions is always going on to some extent, each is more intense during certain hours of the day.
1) Noon to 8 P.M. Appropriation (eating and digestion) 2) 8 P.M. To 4 A.M. Assimilation ( absorption and use) 3) 4 A.M. To noon Elimination ( of body wastes and food debris)
Our body cycles can become apparent to us if we simply witness our bodies in action. Obviously, during the hours we are awake we eat (appropriate), and if we put off eating, our hunger tends to increase as the day progresses.
When we are sleeping and the body has no other noticeable work to do, it is assimilating what was taken in during the day. When we awaken in the morning, we have what is called "morning breath", because our bodies are in the midst of eliminating of that which was not used - body wastes.
Physiologically our bodies want to eat early in the evening so that at least three hours can pass which is the time needed for food to leave the stomach and the assimilation cycle can start on time.
The reason that 62% of the people in America are overweight is that our traditional eating habits have consistently violated the all-important elimination cycle. In other words, we have been taking food in (at a record pace!), and we have been using what we need from that food, but we have NOT been getting rid of what we can't use. Far more time is spent appropriating than eliminating. So the secret of loosing weight is to get rid of the toxic wastes and excesses we carry around.
Metabolic Imbalance. Natural Hygiene use the word "Toxamia" what modern science now calls Metabolic Imbalance. The human body is finely designed to stay in balance in terms of tissue building up (anabolism) and tissue breaking down (catabolism). An excess of one over the other is called "metabolic imbalance".
By keeping your system toxin-free, you significantly increase your change of having a comfortable body weight, because excesses of toxins in the body are the fore runners of obesity.
Your body is building toxemia daily in two ways: Through the normal process of metabolism and by residue left over from the foods which are not efficiently utilized.
As far as your weight concerned, common sense will tell you that if more of this toxic waste is built than is eliminated, there is going to be a build up of the excess. That translate in overweight. To make things worse, toxins are of an acid nature. When there is an acid build up in the body, the system retains water to neutralize it, adding even more weight and bloat.
So how do we maintain metabolic balance and accomplish the removal of toxic waste from the system while still enjoying our food? There are three easy to follow principles or tools, that can assist you in doing just that. The first of these tools to help you realize your goal of permanent easy weight loss is: The principle of High-water-content Food
Water is important for our survival, and so is food and air. What do we mean when we talk about high-water-content food? Our earth we are living on contains 70 percent water for survival. And so does
our bodies. May be you find this hard to believe, but it's a fact. When you consider those two facts, wouldn't it make sense that to maintain a body that is always in top condition, you must consume a diet that also
contains 70 percent water?
If your body is 70 percent water, so where does it get that water from if you don't replenish it on a regular basis? From the moment you are born until the last breath you take, your body is craving this essential of life.
This is besides drinking water, that's another subject. Drinking water does not bring the results I'm talking about. When we talk about high-water-content food, there are only two types of food that have that high water content: they are fruits and vegetables. They should predominate in our diet.
Besides carrying nutrients into the body, water performs the essential function of cleansing the body of toxic wastes.
All three of our body cycles function with the greatest ease when supplied with the water in fruits and vegetables on a regular basis.
If you want to be vibrantly and vigorously alive, in the best possible shape, you have to eat food that's alive.
The importance of proper food combining has been proved as a result of intense research over the last 100 years. Food combining teaches us that the human body is not designed to digest more than one concentrated food in the stomach at the same time.
Any food that is not a fruit or a vegetable is concentrated.
The principle of correct food combining is based on 11 different food groups and associated individual foods. You can get a food combining chart from "Laugh with Health" from the Internet.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that drinking any liquid during a meal will upset the natural digestive process of the juices in the stomach. You should not drink within an hour before a meal or within two hours after a meal.
The correct consumption of fruit is closely associated with proper food combining. Fruit is, without doubt, the most beneficial, energy giving, food you can eat.
Most people like fruit but don't know how and when to eat it. Fruit has the highest water content of any food. Fruit requires less energy to be digested than any other food, in fact, almost none.Fruit is glucose in the body. Fruit does not digest in the stomach. It is essential to eat it on an empty stomach and you should never eat it with or immediately following anything else. This is also very important. Fruit is the most important food that you can eat.
How long do you have to wait before you can eat fruit, depends on the type of food. After a salad or raw vegetables you have to wait 2 hours. After a properly combined meal without meat - 3 hours After a properly combined meal with meat - 4 hours After any improperly combined meal - 8 hours
From the time you wake up in the morning till noon, eat ONLY fresh fruit and fruit juice. When you eat fresh fruit on an empty stomach, it has only a positive effect, it accelerates weight loss.
Juicing is one of the best ways to compensate for the toxins, and ever diminishing nutrient value of our food. For some people, whipping fresh fruits and vegetables through a juicer and extracting a glassful of vitamin-packed nectar ensures that they get the recommended five to seven servings of these foods every day.
Juicing can even help to control your weight. Drinking juices helps the body iron out its nutritional deficiencies, which leaves you more satisfied from a healthy diet and less likely to overeat.
Drink your juices right away, otherwise it will lose their nutritional benefits and the flavor is also fleeting. Some juices, like cabbage, become funky in a few hours. So it's best to make only as much as you plan to drink right away.
Focus on vegetables. While a tall glass of fruit juice may appeal to you, it's better to concentrate on vegetable juices. Fruit juices are high in sugar and too acidic to drink in large quantities. Vegetable juices are better nutritionally. For maximum healing benefits, drink vegetable juices from a variety of vegetables. The more variety you can put into your diet, the better.
The detoxification of your system is very important so that energy can be fried up to be used in reducing weight. Any time you alter your eating habits, your body has to adjust itself to that change and by doing so can initially leave you feeling out of sorts. See any temporary discomfort as the cleansing process taking place and health returning.
For the body to function properly, it is imperative to integrate the principles of good eating habits with a well-balanced exercise program.
Don't make the mistake of excluding exercise from your daily life. A walk in the forest or at the seashore will do wonders for your physical well-being and for your emotional and spiritual outlook.
Weight-bearing exercises have several advantages above aerobics. Weight training increase significantly cardiovascular capacity and endurance. Weight lifting is better than aerobics to loose belly fat. It also increases muscle mass, thereby providing a more plentiful supply of glutamine for your immunity.
Apply high intensity forms of exercise and full-body resistance training. Low intensity cardio exercise has no effect for removing visceral fat in particular. High intensity exercise such as interval training, sprints (bike sprints or running sprints), AND full-body weight training are very effective at helping to improve your body's ability to manage glucose and increases insulin sensitivity, a crucial step in removing visceral fat.
These types of high intensity exercise routines are also very effective at increasing your fat-burning hormones and creating a hormonal environment conducive to burning off abdominal fat,
You have to move some weights if you want a long and healthy life.
