Number seven, don’t drink colas or fruit juices. Carbonated drinks such as colas, ginger ale, pop, or root beer – those things contain too much sugar. The sugar may be called “high-fructose corn syrup,” or the sugar may be called “natural imperial sugar,” but they still have too many carbohydrates.

In fact, fruit juices contain too much sugar as well. Even if the corporate marketing says it’s “100% All Natural Antioxidant Super Organic Juice,” don’t drink it because it’s got too many carbs. You can have diet drinks sweetened with Splenda, which are preferred as opposed to aspartame.

Number eight, don’t eat cereals. Cereals include include warm cereals such as oats or oatmeal, cream of this, malt of that, grits, or cold cereals found on the breakfast aisle like Wheatie Bits and Tasty Squares and Yummy O’s, different granolas, and the like. Again,don’t fall for corporate marketing that says this is the “Latest Heart Healthy Oat and Nut Clusters” or “The cereal that lowers your cholesterol better than drugs!” The fact is if it’s a cereal, you should avoid it.

Number nine, don’t drink beer. Beer is basically high carbohydrate “liquid bread” and they call a “beer belly” for a reason. If you do chose to drink, count the carbs. And if you would like to stop drinking completely, but feel you can’t, number one: contact your doctor, and number two: download the audio book “Alcohol Lied to Me” by Craig Beck with hypnosis.

Weight Loss and Supplements

Now we’ll do a little section on the supplements. Basically I don’t think you have to take a ton of supplements your whole life. But I do think that there are a few that could help you through this transition.

Number one, I do think you should take a high quality multivitamin and that’s something you should probably take your whole life. You should take a high quality multivitamin that includes the trace elements such as chromium, manganese and molybdenum. That’s because our soils are depleted in a lot of these trace elements and so you may not get them in your food.

Number two, omega 3s. Omega 3s are found in fish oil and you can take 3,000 mg a day. You need to discuss with your doctor if this is right for you.

Number three, tryptophan. Tryptophan is called 5HTP and you can take 50 to 100 mg per day, and that can assist with mood . If you’re feeling a little bit depressed, then tryptophan can help you pep up your mood a little bit during the transition.

And finally number four, L-Glutamine. L-glutamine, you take 1-2 grams in heavy cream sweetened with an acceptable sweetener and that can be taken to assist with sugar cravings or carb cravings or even wheat cravings for the first few weeks.

How to Lose Weight with these Implementation Strategies

Next, implementation strategies. This isn’t just a diet course that tells you, “This is the way you must do it.” Because what you have to do is find what works for you. If counting carbs works for you, then do it that way. But then if just deciding what to eat and what not to eat works for you then do it that way. So I’m gonna give you some different implementation strategies and you can choose from one of these to really find something that works for you and makes sense in your mind.

Number one, you can cut the killer carbs completely. This strategy is highly recommended. The killer carbs include bread, wheat, sugar, starches such as potatoes and rice and sweets, and you only eat from the “Do’s” above, and you count carbs when necessary. This is the recommended course if you have any of the diseases that were mentioned in the seminar or if you have significant weight to lose — cut those killer carbs completely.

Implementation stragegy number two is cut the killer carbs by 90% . This is how I implemented my diet initially before eliminating refined carbs completely. It works and it works well. But I found that when I ate wheat I would get indigestion, and I was hungry with carb and wheat cravings 2 hours later. The problem is, if you don’t cut out the wheat, there are still addictive wheat exorphins that remain in the diet. But this strategy can work and it worked for me.

Number three, a very simple approach is to eat at least 1/2 lb. of meat (or eggs) at every meal. This was the diet that was given by the New York cardiologist, and what you do is you make sure you eat enough meat or eggs at every meal that you’re not really hungry for anything else. This will help decrease sugar and carbs, you can use some vegetables to make up the rest of your meals, and it has the same cautions as #2 above. Remember, if there’s a time you eat carbs you may have carb cravings two hours later.

More Diet Options

Number four, you can eat what you want and just count the carbs, remembering that less than 20 net carbs per day will cause you to lose weight rapidly; less than 60 net carbs a day causes people to lose weight more slowly – but for most people. And somewhere above 60 net carbs, you’ll start gain weight. What that number is for you is uniqe, and you can basically watch how many carbs you eat each day to see how it worksm, to see what your unique number is. And the same cautions go for #2 above which means, if there’s times when you’re counting carbs but you eat wheat, then you may say, “Oh,” two hours later, you have a wheat craving or have a sugar craving.

Implementation stragegy number five is to eat only “protein and vegetables.” This was kind of how I thought of my diet initially, was the protein and vegetable diet. And you can eat as much protein as you want, and as much green leafy veggies as you want at every meal. I include nuts as being protein. So if you think protein and vegetables are the healthiest thing that you can do, then go about the diet that way.

Or number six, you can just cut out the wheat and the gluten 100% and make no other changes. This sort of approach will be beneficial for your health even if you don’t lose weight, because it eliminates the #1 addictive, blood-sugar raising, insulin stimulating, body acidifying, inflammatory carbohydrate right out of your diet. However, if you desire to lose weight and the weight doesn’t decrease simply with wheat elimination alone, then you will have to move to one of the other options above.

So pick the strategy that works best for you and stick with it for three months.
