“The key to lose weight is to enjoy your food, eat three course meals and eat as much as you want.” Tell this to anyone who has been struggling to lose weight, and they will laugh at you. Trust me, when I heard someone say this three years back, I laughed too. I weighed 81 kg then.
Would you believe me if I told you I tried doing exactly this, and lost 20 kgs? I weigh 61 kg now – without any dieting! And what’s more, we have helped hundreds of people lose weight easily and reach their ideal weight through PHC Lifestyle Clinic. In fact, weight loss is the easiest target to achieve. Read this article to find out how.
I’m sure you know at least 20 people who are overweight or obese. If you think you don’t, just go to the street and see how many people you can find who are at their ideal body weight! I’m sure you would find only a few.
On the other hand, have you ever seen a fat wild animal? For example, a fat giraffe? Or even a fat elephant? Of course, there are heavy animals like elephants and hippopotamuses, and animals that put on weight and then hibernate. But these animals are all built heavy, not fat. Have you seen animals that are unnaturally fat? So fat they can’t run fast, they can’t bend, they can’t stand for long hours? There are no such animals in the wild.
We are the only fat animals in the world. More people die from heart attacks and strokes than from HIV, accidents and cancer combined – and 95% of this is preventable. We have an epidemic of obese six month old children! The theme for the World Anti Obesity Day 2016, November 26th, is Stop Childhood Obesity. Health is the greatest gift we can give our children – and it begins in our kitchen.
How do we solve this problem for ourselves and our families? The solution is simpler than you think.
Root Cause of Obesity
How do you remove weeds in a garden? You pull them out by their roots. If you dont, they grow right back. The solution to any problem is to remove the root cause of the problem.
Diets don’t work to lose weight. They don’t address the root cause of obesity. The fundamental basis of a diet is ‘I like this, but I’m not going to eat it!’. How long can one control cravings? This is impractical.
To remove the root cause of obesity, let us understand how food influences health.
Here’s the Formula to Lose Weight
The 5-step formula reaching our ideal weight is a ‘Whole Foods Plant Based Diet’:
Farm: Organically or naturally grown plants. No animals or animal products. Gluten free crops.
Factory: Unprocessed whole foods
Shop: Local and seasonal ingredients
Kitchen: Slow cooked in water
Dining: Three-course meals to be had in the following order: Fruits and raw vegetables, followed by cooked vegetables, then cooked pulses and cereals; two meals a day, when hungry, mindfully eaten with eyes closed, without distractions, and chewed to a paste.
