Omega 3-s from wild salmon, sardines, mackerel and anchovies lower inflammation throughout your body and reverse oxidative damage caused by eating sugary food sin the past. Make sure to avoid the farmed fish however as these contain toxic antibiotics, synthetic food colouring agents and are fed a very poor diet, making them low in nutrients. 8.

Avocados (0-4g) & Olive Oil (0g) Avocados and extra virgin olive oil. When cutting out carbs and sugar, you’ll definitely want to add more healthy fats into your diet, to help control your appetite. Avocados are one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world, and are rich in monounsaturated fats which provide fuel and energy to your cells. They are also rich in potassium, magnesium and Avocatin B, all of which improve hormone balance, insulin resistance and help your body metabolise and burn fat. Similarly, extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest cooking ingredients.
It’s loaded with anti-inflammatory chemicals like oleocanthal and oleuropein which can get rid of pain, swelling, joint pain, inflammation and improve the health of your liver. 11. Nutritional Yeast When you’re on a diet or your exercising heavily, your body uses up its B-vitamins to help break down your stored fat and turn it into energy. This can leave you depleted, causing you to feel weaker, tired and it can even trigger anxiety and mood disorders in some people. Start consuming 1-2 tablespoons of unfortified nutritional yeast daily.
This is rich in the B-Vitamin complex and will help to fix your metabolism, lower cortisol (stress), and support heathy weight loss.
12. Herbs (0g) & Spices (1-3g) Carbs, Per Tsp To heal any ailment or to lose weight, eat freshly chopped herbs in salads on a daily basis. Some of the best are mint, basil, parsley, oregano, cilantro, dill, rosemary and thyme. These do not contain any starches, but are packed full of healing antioxidants and phytonutrients that support weight loss and blood sugar management.
Likewise I also recommend spices, like turmeric, cinnamon, coriander seeds, black pepper and ginger. These are some of the nature’s most powerful natural healers which help to repair the liver, the pancreas, and the digestive organs. Spices contain a very tiny amount of carbs, but you don’t need much to get the benefits and give your meals a delicious flavour.
What’s interesting about nature, is that the foods that are healthiest for you often have the most vibrant tastes and flavours. Here’s a quick summary of some of foods that I’ve talked about today.
Eating a mixture of these foods to replace carbohydrates will quickly help your body to burn fat at a rapid rate, and also trigger healing at the cellular level It’s important that you avoid the conventional cheap meats and farmed fish which are pumped full of hormones, antibiotics are fed GMO grains.
You want to choose high quality grass fed and grass finished meats, wild caught fish, pasture raised eggs and dairy produce. Also, choose organic vegetables and leafy greens, that have not been sprayed with harmful pesticides that can damage your liver. Losing Weight Fast If your’ goal is to lose weight there are some simple tricks and techniques that you can also use to help turn your body into a fat burning machine. 1.
Perform intermittent fasting at least 2-4 days per week. Eat all of your calories and food in a shorter window of time. You do this in a 5 hour window, and allow your body 19 hours to fast. Fasting makes your cells more sensitive to insulin, allowing more energy, fat and fuel to be burned so that you can lose weight faster.
Fasting also stimulates autophagy, your bodies way of cleaning out damaged cells, recycling them to build new healthy parts.
2. Start taking a digestive enzyme supplement before each meal. Choose a brand which contains bile, pancreatin and betaine hcl. These ingredients help your gallbladder and your pancreas to release bile and enzymes that break down fat, and clean out your digestive system. 3.
Avoid all starchy, sugary and processed carbohydrates like bread, cereal, pasta, rice, biscuits, potatoes, soda, doughnuts etc.. These foods raise your insulin and blood sugars, which prevent you from losing weight. 4. Eat lots of healthy fats that I’ve already talked about today, like avocados, eggs, EVOO, and raw coconut oil.
These help your body to switch from burning glucose (sugar) to burning body fat (adipose tissue).
5. Keep your stress levels low, because stress hormones (cortisol) makes you gain weight. Taking long walks in nature, getting more sleep and deep breathing exercise can all be used to minimise stress, which helps balance hormones. 6.
Drink at least 1 litre of a good quality mineral water each day, avoiding tap water as this can contain unhealthy forms of estrogen that promote weight gain. Choose a bottled brand which comes from a natural source rich in minerals. I personally drink Evian, San Pellegrino and Fiji water, but there many brands out there to choose from.
