Diet Plan ..... Check
Cut out sugar, alcohol and grains ..... Check
All great steps to take if you want to lose fat, but if you want to to see the fat melt away, you need to take it one step further. Remember my description of unnecessary foods:
I regard 'unnecessary food' to be any food that either has no nutritional value or whose nutritional value can be got somewhere else for less calories
- The seeds are cleaned to separate if from the soil, leaves etc
- They are then crushed, rolled and pressed to extract the oil. So far so good.
- After rolling the seeds still contain some valuable oil, so first is is cleaned with a solvent
- The oil is then washed with sodium hydroxide
- Bleached to lighten the colour
- And finally bottled up.
Tasty! I'll stick to my cold pressed coconut oil thanks.
Beans & Legumes: Now I don't think legumes are bad, they're not, but I do think they are unnecessary. They contain protein which is a good thing, but the amount is pitiful when compared to meat and you're also going to get an extra 20g of carbohydrate per portion.
Dairy: Again, not particularly bad, but I generally feel better the less dairy I eat. I used to always have spots on my back which I put down to sweating a lot through work, however when I cut out dairy they cleared up, then returned again when I re-introduced it. Last summer was my first dairy free and it was also the only year I didn't suffer from hay-fever, so if you are a hay fever sufferer it may be worth a try. That year I also lost 6lbs in 4 weeks without making any other changes to my diet.
Anyway enough about me. When asked most people say you need dairy for calcium, but gram for gram kale has more calcium than milk with less calories, so it makes the unnecessary list.
So there you have it, my fool proof plan to stop myself getting bullied by a twelve year old girl!
I will report back in a couple of weeks to let you know how it all went.
