Optimal Weight Week 1

< Other discussions

Usher in a new relationship with yourself as you embark on this 9-week seasonal journey.

We are starting with the first pillar of health: nourishment.

Do examine your motivation as you proceed with awareness and self-compassion.

Remember to write an intention for your week and visualize your progress before affirming it.

Some golden rules:

  1.   Emphasize pure, fresh, wholesome, local, and diverse foods.
  2.   Favor light and lean vegetarian meals.
  3.   The antidote tastes for spring- bitter, pungent, & astringent.
  4.   The fasting window could be up to 16 hours (at least 12).
  5.   Stay hydrated and moisturized.
  6.   Plan for 2 meals where lunch is bigger and dinner lighter.
  7.   Consume fruit as a snack, separate from your meal.
  8.   Eat in a calm, settled environment; consume with reverence.
  9.   Avoid processed, left-over, and cold foods; along with meat,    wheat, dairy, and sugar.

Consider these foods:

• Legumes like red lentils and mung beans.

• Light grains like millet, quinoa, and barley.

• Spices like black pepper, turmeric, ginger, garlic, cumin, and mustard seeds.

• Forage for dandelions, and nettles (consult a foraging guide).

• Vegetables like mustard greens, fenugreek, and asparagus.
