If you are struggling with weight loss, we are talking about it again on today’s episode!
Welcome to The David Maow Lifestyle Show! A new podcast is released every Monday both on iTunes and here at www.davidmadow.com. The video version of each podcast is then released 1 1/2 weeks later, on the following Wednesday, at www.facebook.com/davidmadow.
On the last episode (Episode #92), I took a question from listener, Barb in Dayton, OH. She is 50 and is vegan. She is always hungry and her vegan diet is not working out well for her. She is struggling with weight loss. Even though she exercises quite a bit, always tries to get in 10,000 steps and she also weight trains 2-3 days per week. I gave several great weight loss tips in last week’s episode and I have a few more for you this week!
As stated last week (and many times before), I highly recommend a whole food plant based diet. Nothing processed, no (or at least very minimal) sugar, oil, or salt. In addition to that, here are a few other suggestions:
I recommend making juice from fresh fruits and vegetables in your own home. I do it frequently, which also means that I am always at the grocery store just about every day. I have a Breville Juicer and LOVE it! I start with some type of greens, like collard green, chard, or spinach. Then I add things like celery, beets (small amount), carrots, apple, and ginger. However you can add almost anything that you like. When you drink a glass of this every day, it is pure health. Some people feel that you should be eating the vegetables and fruit instead of drinking them but in my diet I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables so I always get the nutrients I need. Since I’ve began juicing, I have noticed that I feel healthier and my skin is more vibrant.
What to Put in A Salad
People think that salads don’t fill you up. If you are watching the video, you can see the example of my salad. It is a pretty good size salad. What’s in it? It is loaded with organic spinach, celery, carrots, tomatoes, pecans, nutritional yeast and flax seed. Some things I do not have on my salad today but will also help to fill you up are tofu and beans. I can eat very large portions of these because the food is not processed, there is no sugar, salt, and minimal oil, although I do sometimes add a little vegan dressing.
I am not on the “window diet”! Do you know what the “window diet” is? The “window diet” is when you drive up to a window, roll the window down, and they hand you a bag of food through your window. Never! That will kill you! If you are on the window diet even once a week, please quit!
I was doing some research recently and found that whether it’s bad food that you’re eating, lack of sleep, or lack of exercise, they all do the same thing to your body. If you are eating a lousy diet full of processed foods and fats, getting very little sleep, or not moving your body, it’s funny how the same thing happens. You will gain weight, your blood pressure goes up, your cholesterol goes up, your blood sugar goes up, you are more prone to diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. If you abuse your body in any way, your body will react in bad ways. The human body talks to you when you abuse it. You may go for years with underlying medical issues that get worse over time and can cause serious problems including death. When you are eating healthy you don’t have the issues. You will like looking at yourself in the mirror. I am proud of my 60-year-old body. And you can be proud of yours too!
