Lose 20 Pounds…

Now that I have your attention…that was my “grab me” title. My intention isn’t to speak about losing weight, but what I’m about to share will make you healthy from the inside out and eventually will help shed unwanted pounds. Only if you’re willing to commit.

In an earlier post I mentioned my journey to getting healthy. To do that, I had to detox my body of fungus that had built up over the years. It has been a major learning curve and I had no idea the effects of what we put in our mouths could be detrimental to our health.

So, enter the “Fungi Diet Phase I”. I’m going to share what I did for the first three months of this diet. Now, this is a very strict diet, but I can promise you, you’ll be glad you did it in the end.

Here are the YES and NO foods:

Sweetners – YES Foods – SlimSweet, Stevia; NO Foods – All sugars
Fruits – YES Foods – Granny Smith Apples, Berries (All types), Avocados, Grapefruit, Lemons, Limes, Fresh Coconut; NO Foods – All others, including druid juices

Now, I know this looks like it’s impossible, but I promise you, it can be done. If I can do it, anyone can! I’ll share some of my recipes that helped save me from going insane on this diet in future posts!

The reason I share this is…it works. It truly works, and I’m a happier person because of it. I’m making headway and I know my body is healing every day. My wellness visits are proof of the transformation that has taken place.

The results of this diet, well I was able to shed unwanted weight and fungus and water weight. That clearly wasn’t the plan, but it happened. Who’s going to complain about losing weight in a healthy way?

Keep the faith and commitment, you’ll be glad you did. Here’s to great health…and so it is.
