Tips about How to Lose Weight

1. Consume foods in the natural state when possible.

2. Food programs should emphasize high protein content obtainable from a variety of meat, dairy products, eggs, cottage cheese, nuts, legumes, and yogurt.

3. When possible, use foods grown or raised without poisonous chemical sprays or food additives. Wash fruit thoroughly before eating. Enzymes from natural fruit help lose weight.

4. Steam vegetables or cook with a minimum amount of water and for as short a time as possible to minimize destruction of vitamins.
5. Eliminate or minimize the use of refined sugar such as corn syrup, dextrose, sucrose, fructose, brown sugar, 10X sugar.
6. Eliminate the use of bleached white flour products.
7. Avoid prepackaged breads, pastries, ice cream, cold or prepared cured meats.
8. Minimize fat intake and avoid trans saturated fats You’ll find these in anything that says, “hydrogenated,” or “partially hydrogenated.”

9. Avoid the use of carbonated soda and drinks containing caffeine, such as coffee, tea and coke. Instead, where possible consume fresh fruit juices, water and decaffeinated herbal teas.

10. During times of the year when fresh vegetables are not available, frozen vegetables are your next best choice as they are frozen with liquid nitrogen and retain much of the nutrients.
