9 Rules, The Sexiest Life Enhancing Diet

StartFragment

Stop being so hyperfocused on weight loss, and stop completely ignore the shit that actually matters. What do I mean?

Glad you asked!

The foods you eat now make all the difference in how well you age (sex appeal) and whether or not you will circum to certain diseases (life enhancing and even saving). I know this blog is harsher than my normal tone, but I’m mad for you.

I need you to enjoy the best life has to offer you, that is my purpose in life...to help you reach your potential. And the only way that will ever happen is if you switch from eating energy and life sucking foods to committing to eating for health, vibrancy and longevity - dropping weight is a happy benefits.

Most people are eating a highly inflammatory diet full of dairy, cheese, red meat, chicken, processed foods and refined sugars...increasing their chances of getting arthritis, heart disease, alzheimer's, parkinson's, cancer, accelerating the aging process and decreasing their metabolism.

And this is why I'm so passionate about a whole-foods plant-based anti-inflammatory diet…

Sorry, not sorry to the rest of the fitness industry toting high-inflammatory meat and dairy diets.

Here are 9 Rules for eating The Anti-inflammatory Diet...and yes this is a plant (based) diet.

  1. Consume 25 grams of fiber...you’ll actually have to track your daily intake to figure out how close you're getting. Tip if you are eating whole foods you are easily getting this amount. Fiber rich diets reduce inflammation, and supply phytonutrients. Focus on whole foods like fruits, veggies, and whole grains such as oatmeal, brown rice, and quinoa.

  2. Eat a minimum of 9 servings of fruits and veg a day! Yeah that’s a lot - but it’s the most important thing you can do for your skin and overall health. ½ cup is a serving of fruit and veg and 1 cup for raw leafy greens.

  3. Use anti-inflammatory herbs and spices like turmeric and ginger when it makes sense.

  4. Plan to get in 4 servings (or 2 cups) of allium and cruciferous veg a week. These are powerful antioxidants that will decrease your risk for many cancers. Examples of allium: garlic, scallions, onions and leeks and cruciferous: broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, mustard greens and brussel sprouts.

  5. Limit saturated fat to less than 10% or 15 grams for 1500 calories and 20 grams for 2000 calorie diet. And limiting or removing high saturated fatty foods like red meat and dairy will greatly reduce your risk for heart disease.

  6. Consume Omega 3. Foods like flax seed or meal, walnuts, chia seeds and beans such as navy, kidney and soy reduce inflammation, cancer risks and other chronic diseases like arthritis. You can also take an Omega 3 algae supplement - one of the few supplements I actually recommend.

  7. Avoid processed foods, refined sugars, artificial sugars, high-fructose corn syrup and high sodium foods - all increase inflammation in the body and skin, increase insulin resistance (type 2 diabetes), increase blood pressure and risk of fatty liver disease.

  8. Cut out all trans fats. Check labels for hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated in the ingredients. No amount of trans fats are deemed safe.

  9. Sweeten foods with phytonutrient rich fruits and flavor foods with anti-inflammatory spices like clove, cinnamon, turmeric, rosemary, ginger, sage and thyme.

I’m pretty sure inflammation is the route of all evil. So cleanse your body and soul with high vibrating foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds and legumes. You will feel and see a difference instantly by making these changes and leveling up on your health.
