SuperFoods

 

These two books helped me to change my way of eating and subsequently shed several pounds over the years. These amazing books list and describe many natural foods and their health benefits to our bodies. This is not a diet or a weight loss eating plan. It’s a pretty long list of whole foods that I chose from to plan my weekly meals and snacks.

I initially began eating the SuperFoods back in the summer of 2006. The SuperFoods list consists of just about everything that I love to eat, so it wasn’t a difficult adjustment for me to begin eating this way. I coupled eating these foods with consuming no more than 1500 to 1600 calories per day and was able to lose 2 pounds every week pretty effortlessly. When I added walking to my daily routine, I would sometimes lose 2.5 to 3 pounds in a week.

To make things easy for me to incorporate all of these wonderful foods, I created an Excel spreadsheet for myself that lists the foods, recommended portion sizes and how often I should consume them. What was surprisingly fun for me was to try to fit in all of the foods each day and/or week, and still stay at my calorie range. There is a LOT of food that is listed to choose from and I never felt hungry or like I was following some sort of diet.

Well, at this stage of my journey to health and strength and fitness, it’s time for me to get back to my SuperFoods! I always feel energized and in balance when I feed my body these whole, clean, fresh SuperFoods. Thank you Dr. Steven G. Pratt and Kathy Matthews!
