Most of my time these days is spent teaching people the
benefits of correctly combining foods and eating alkaline
foods, whether it's in emails, radio shows or in face to
Among other things, eating meals that are combined
correctly and getting a good intake of alkaline foods will
definitely help you blow torch off the pounds--something
that 90% of American adults try to do at one point or
Many of our clients have written in saying that all they
wanted to do was end their acid reflux, constipation, IBS,
etc., but got an pleasant surprise when they dropped an
inch or two off their belt size. Without exception, they
were amazed at how easy it was.
Yes, it is very easy, but even if your meals are never
miscombined, there are still some bad habits that will
thwart any progress you make in bringing that scale number
No matter what you're eating, if you regularly eat past
the point of being comfortably full, the inches will not
come off. I don't care if you eat salad for breakfast,
lunch and dinner--if you stuff yourself, the scale number
will not move.
The average adult stomach holds about 4 cups (1 liter) of
food. Eating any more than that in a sitting is overeating.
Yes, eating the Great Taste No Pain way
helps ensure that you get the benefit of the nutrients
from your foods, so you feel full because your body is
nourished--BUT you can't ignore your body's signals. When
you feel full, stop eating.
HINT: To make this far easier, eat slower. The brain
doesn't get the "full" signal for as long as 20 minutes
AFTER your stomach is actually full. So overeating is very
easy to do when you are eating fast. So sloooooow it down.
Enjoy your food, don't inhale it.
If you skip meals, you will eventually be ravenously
hungry and far more likely to either eat the first empty-
calorie junk you can get your hands on (like fast food,
candy bars or vending machine snacks) or overeat at your
next meal or both.
Can't you just see that scale number creep up, up, up?
Eat three correctly combined meals every day, plus smart
snacks if you're (truly) hungry in between. Great Taste No
Pain shows you how.
3. Limit what you drink while eating
Drinking a large amount of anything (even water) with a
meal will dilute or upset your stomach's enzymes and
interfere with proper digestion.
And when your food is poorly digested, you don't get the
benefit of all the nutrients, you'll feel hungry sooner, so
you'll end up eating more. Plus, the food won't pass
through your system easily, causing constipation and waste
build-up in the colon, which also adds pounds.
Eating lots of alkaline, high water content food as
outlined in Great Taste No Pain
reduces the amount of fluid you crave during a meal
because you're getting natural, nutrient-rich fluids from
However, if you must have a drink with meals, stick to
small sips of water. Stay far away from acid-creating
soda, coffee and alcohol.
To your health,
PS: Here's a great way pain-free way to start the day:
4 cups "fresh" fruit (not canned) of your choice
1 large banana
1 cup real fruit juice
1 cup ice cubes
Put all ingredients into a blender; blend on high speed 1
minute until smooth and thoroughly mixed. If mixture is
too thick, add fruit juice to desired consistency.
Great fresh fruit and juice combinations include:
· Mixed berries--strawberries, blueberries, blackberries
and raspberries with berry juice
· Peaches, mangos, nectarines and pineapple with orange or
· Mixed melons-watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew with
mixed fruit juice
· Apples, pears and grapes with apple or cran-apple juice
