1st Cycle –
is a one to two-week long taper cycle, in which you switch from high sugar impact foods to medium sugar impact foods. (this means that if you typically eat regular pasta, you’d switch over to quinoa pasta.) She also says that scheduling your meals to where you’re not eating every two hours; rather you stretch the time between meals to prevent insulin spikes. This is one form of intermittent fasting. At the end of this taper-down period of one or two weeks, you retest yourself on the sugar impact quiz, to see how you’ve done.
2nd Cycle – in which you’re really resetting your taste buds and reclaiming your sugar sensitivity, meaning your ability to taste how sweet a food really is. You should get rid of all of the fructose. We’re getting down to five grams or less, just as low as possible because you don’t want your body to be good at processing fructose. One thing we know is that the more fructose you eat, the better you get at handling fructose, which means the faster it goes to your liver, the faster you start making fat. Take this for example – if you eat more fruit all the time, then you can handle it. But, if you never eat any fruit, and you ate a bunch of fruit, you’d be bloated, you’d be gassy, and it’d be horrible. Fruits you should eat – lemons, limes, avocado, tomato, and olives. And we go down to all low-sugar impact foods. But you’re still eating great stuff. You’re eating wild salmon, grass-fed beef, kale, avocado, nuts and seeds, a little quinoa, legumes, and lentils.”
3rd Cycle – you start to challenge yourself by reintroducing some of the medium or even high sugar impact foods. Many people will now find that they’re overwhelmed by the sweetness, or they’ll feel bloated or downright ill by the high-sugar food. As a result, the psychological grip of sweet foods lessens, as you simply do not want to go back to feeling horrible once you’re feeling really great. Interestingly, sour taste, such as that from cultured vegetables, helps to reduce sweet cravings, too.
Healthy Snack Alternatives
You should also know that nuts are great for satisfying the occasional hunger pang. Nuts are really good because:
They’re very high in fat – the good fat, oleic acid, which is similar to olive oil, and
They’re low in protein, so you won’t run the risk of eating a whole day’s worth of protein in a few handfuls of nuts
She also says that you should be aware of your food triggers, and if you cannot keep a jar of nuts in your house without polishing off the whole thing in one sitting, you just turned a good thing into something bad. While nuts do contain healthy fats, they also tend to be high in calories, so moderation is in order.
“If you know something’s your trigger, don’t bring it into the house. It doesn’t matter if it’s healthy or unhealthy. But I think if you put them into little serving baggies, that’s a perfect way to go with it. I also like that because most people aren’t home all day long, so I say, ‘Put one in your car. Put it in your purse. Put it in your office so that you have them scattered around if you ever get in trouble.’ Another healthy snack that is much harder to overdo is dehydrated kale chips. I’m in the process of planting six dozen kale plants on my property to create a surplus for this very reason. That way I can have kale chips year-round. Roasted Brussels sprouts are another alternative that you can’t really “overdose” on.”
Well, many people tried cutting back on calories, but – they didn’t lose any weight. Here’s what you need to do – you should eliminate gluten, pasteurized dairy and processed fructose from your diet. If you steal eat the wrong foods, even though your calorie count is reduced – you should know that you won’t lose any weight. As we said, you need to cut down on the fructose-filled foods that tell your body to store the sugar as fat and to eat more. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share.
