The goal of Sugar Freedom is to give you the knowledge you need to create a lifetime eating system.
You must learn to answer this question, “What are the foods that keep me healthy and happy?”
One thing I have learned is that the answer to this question is as unique as you are. Sugar Freedom is intended to release you from cravings so that you can rediscover your natural appetite, and learn to choose food rationally. When we are hungry and stressed we rarely eat in a way that is consistent with our long term goals, unless we have a plan in place to make sure that we choose wisely.
If I could only give you one piece of advice on eating for fat release it would be this:
Always have some Freedom Foods available and ready to eat.
For me, that means salad greens are washed and chopped, and hard boiled eggs are available. If I’m not willing to maintain that minimum level of preparation, something is off with my attitude, and I need to adjust it.
I separate my Freedom Foods into three categories, and I suggest that you do the same.
Category One: Fat Releasing Foods
These are the foods I choose when I want to get leaner. Here are three foods from the three macronutrient groups:
Fats: Coconut Oil, Grass Fed Pastured Butter, Olive Oil
Proteins: Eggs, Organic Chicken, Tuna
Carbohydrates: Romaine Lettuce, Broccoli, Cauliflower.
Category Two: Maintenance Foods
These are the foods I choose for more variety, and to prevent boredom.
Fats: Cheddar Cheese, yogurt, Swiss
Proteins: Uncured Hot Dogs, Pepperoni, Uncured Canadian Bacon
Carbohydrates: Apples, Grapefruit, Berries
Category Three: Occasion Foods
These are for holidays, birthdays, and celebrations.
Fancy soft cheeses, nuts, dark chocolate sweetened with stevia, desserts made with Xylitol.
I believe that one problem with modern eating is that special occasion foods have replaced simple nutrition in our daily lives. We shouldn’t expect to stay lean and healthy eating the equivalent of cake at every meal.
In order to get and maintain a leaner healthier body, we have to eat with wisdom and maturity at most meals.
What are your fat releasing, maintenance, and occasion foods?
If you can answer these questions, I can consider the Sugar Freedom program a success.
