Thinking Perfection or Nothing
It is always Progress not Perfection…always doing the very very best you can
Skipping the Crucial 30 Day Elimination Time to Reset and Detoxify
Leaving out all grains, dairy, processed food and sugar for 30 days is needed to detoxify and reset your insulin response (and to begin resetting your Set Point of weight).
Failing to Give This Time
This is a totally new way of life for most of us. It is NOT a diet, but a Lifestyle. “Faith and Patience inherit the promises.” Give yourself at least 120 days to test and learn this new lifestyle and you likely will never wish to go back. BTW, it takes 120 days to get a whole new generation of cells.
Fear of Calories, Good Fats and the Scales
We have been trained wrong. All calories are NOT the same. “Calories in and calories out” is totally outdated thinking. All fats are NOT bad. Lack of Good Fats causes many problems including excess weight. Inches on the tape measure will tell the real truth. Muscle weighs more than fat.
Thinking Perfect Food Quality (Organic, Grassfed Beef) or Nothing
Just doing the best you can will still work wonders.
Still Selecting No or Low Fat Foods
These are most often filled with sugar (which turns to fat) and are processed foods versus the healthy, whole foods God created. Diet foods make most people fat in time.
Missing Balance of Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat. (Too Much Meat without the Vegetables and Fruit)
God created wonderful vegetables and fruits to give us delicious and healthy food to enjoy. Keep the vegetables in a ratio to the fruit about 3:1 and most nutritional experts suggest 6:1 (six veggies to 1 fruit.) Do limit fruit to no more than three pieces a day. Limit or skip the bananas.
