    Default Weight Loss Food

    Three months or about two pound per week is enough of a weight loss. I lost 21 pounds from 210 to about 189, and kept it off. This in about three to four months.

    First I quit buying sugar and donít eat any desserts, except berries with skim milk. Best to avoid if possible. It was not difficult for me, since I seldom ate desserts, but used sugar on everything.

    Then change your diet completely. Here is how I do it.

    My Juicer. Believe it or not I got mine for nothing. My son brought it to me from a friend who didnít use it. At first I was not impressed, since I had a centrifugal juicer years past and found it such a misery to clean that I gave it away, also it didnít leave enough of the microscopic fibre.
    ChampionJuicer.com | - Champion Juicer | Plastaket Mfg.
    These units have to be heavy. I keep mine on a table in the dining room and move it into place in the kitchen as required. The Champion appears to be indestructible, and does a marvellous job, and is easy to clean. I am finding more uses for it as I get more experience.

    Usually depending upon the product I cook the product and beat it into a mash Lancaster 1-Speed Hand Blender | Canadian Tire Canadian Tire, then strain Strainers-Juicers - Endurance Stainless Steel Food Mill, then put the residue from the strainer through the juicer, not always depends upon the produce. Then if there is enough I pressure can for storage, otherwise it is put in the refrigerator for immediate use. With experience, I have ascertained that one can preserve almost any fruit and vegetable, only limited by the availability and imagination.

    For making juice raw, I simply beat the product into a juice in the blender.I use whatever is available. You get all the fibre this way. This is a raw product, but I feel a lot must be lost digesting, but at least one can ingest a lot of fresh produce. It will keep in the refrigerator if sealed for about 8 days. I prefer the cooked and strained or a combination of both.

    I might add making these products a portion of your diet, weight control is easy and weight loss is relatively rapid at first even without noticing, since appetite is reduced. And certainly one is getting all the necessary nutrients. My view is there is no sense losing weight by dieting and still eating the same food that made one heavy. Further there are few people in our modern society, who do not have a weight problem.

    I do eat some normal food periodically in reduced proportions and on festive occasions. When sort of hungry, simply have a glass of juice, mix in a glass if necessary to improve flavour if this is a big issue with you. I am full of energy and very active. More so, after losing the weight.

    ~I love my juicer! I have the Jack Lelane one. I think it's easy to clean and the juice is very bodied.
    I've been blessed to not have weight issues. I think a part of that is actually loving fruits and vegetables so much. I'd rather have a bowl of strawberries than a cinnamon roll. I do love cinnamon rolls though.
    If you surround yourself with good food, making good choices becomes much easier.~

    I would try all that cooking and juicing but I'm way to lazy to do that.

    I make smoothies with my vitamix. Every single morning I make a green smoothie out of whatever kind of greens and vegetables I have laying around. I got the idea from that girl who wrote 12 steps to raw food. I tried their recipes but they were all gross, trying to cover up the taste of the greens with fruits and stuff. I just add a lot of garlic, avocado, peppers and green onions to mine and they actually taste pretty good. My appetite has definitely been lessened since I started doing this.

    I have not been able to keep any of the raw smoothies in the fridge though because after a couple hours they firm up like jello.

    I'm in the process of trying smoothies as well. Nishu, do you use yogurt in yours? Or any juice? I'm a little gunshy as to where to start because I don't want to make something really gross that I will hate! I know smoothies are good for you though and its a great way to get in the fruit and veg.

    In my green smoothies all I put in it is water, vegetables and sometimes a little salt. I use half an avocado when I have it. It really improves the texture and taste.

    For fruit smoothies, I typically just use a couple different kinds of fruits and some water. I use frozen fruit (thawed) because it's so easy, and I try to use at least one fruit that's really sweet so that it's not bland. My kids' favorite right now is mango and pineapple. I've put full fat yogurt in it as well and they really liked that.

    Frozen cherries with almond butter and a little milk is really good, too.
