A great question we've been asked often is what's a good diet to accompany EZ SLIM. When changing the way you eat we like to think of it as a lifestyle change that will continue for the rest of your life as opposed to a temporary diet.
We're actually preparing a FREE book to accompany EZ SLIM that will be available for all previous and future clients that outlines several simple lifestyle and dietary changes to maximize fat loss.
One of the great diets Dr Ray, our patch formulator, recommends accompanying EZ SLIM is the Bulletproof Diet. Here is a great link that summarizes the Bulletproof Diet
The Bulletproof Diet
The Bulletproof diet is a weight loss and muscle maintenance diet with the goal of increasing energy levels and improving your bodily function. It focuses on clean, healthy eating and elimination of toxic chemicals and bad habits that are hurting your body. This is a comprehensive that requires attention to be paid to both your body and mind, and as a result leads to overall better health in every aspect of your being. There are 10 main steps to follow when adhering to the bulletproof diet.
Get Rid of Sugar
Sugar is found in many foods, and often added unnaturally to excessive levels. Juices, sports drinks, sauces, dressings, and many breads contain added sugars that are harmful to your body and your goals. Getting rid of this substance will help you to cut pounds fast.
Use Healthy Fats Instead of Sweeteners
Healthy fats will provide more sustainable energy levels, reduce cravings, and help you to avoid crashes associated with sugar and unhealthy fats. Try to incorporate nutritious fats like ghee, grass-fed butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil into your diet.
Eliminate Gluten and Grains
The gluten found in wheat can cause many uncomfortable symptoms like bloating, fatigue, and joint point. This is counterproductive to your diet and should be avoided. Other grains to avoid include oats, barley, and corn.
Eat Grass-fed Meats and Wild-caught Seafood
Clean sources of protein are important for their nutrient density and lack of toxins that are often found in mass-produced factory meats. Pastured meats like beef, lamb, bison, pork, and chicken are excellent sources of protein. When it comes to fish, always buy wild-caught seafood as it is healthier and more sustainable.
Beans, lentils, and peanuts are not as healthy as often thought, as the lectins they contain can contribute to blood clotting. Try to avoid them completely or keep your intake to a minimal amount.
Eliminate unnatural additives and flavorings
The more you stick to natural food, the better you will feel. Cut out any foods containing MSG, food dyes, or other artificial flavors.
Switch to Raw Dairy
Processed dairy that has been homogenized and pasteurized generally contains the disruptive compounds casein and lactose. These contribute to inflammation and digestive problems, so it is best to avoid them. Switching to raw, grass-fed dairy products minimizes the presence of these harmful chemicals.
Buy Organic Fruits and Vegetables
Organic produce is known for being cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable. By purchasing organic fruits and vegetables, you are steering clear of pesticides and ensuring that you are receiving the highest quality food your money can buy.
Reduce Fruit Intake and opt for Vegetables
Fruits contain a fair share of vitamins, but they are also high in sugar which contributes to obesity. Limit fruit intake to 1-2 daily servings, and instead increase your vegetable consumption as veggies provide more nutrients at a lower caloric value.
Raw food will always provide you with the most nutrients, but if you must cook your food, be sure to do it gently. With meat, cooking at high heats can damage protein and create carcinogens, greatly reducing the nutritional value. Avoid frying or grilling your meat and veggies and opt instead for slow cooking on low heat.
