Excess weight and fat

801860_39370668

Excess fat in the body is caused by overeating or eating the wrong foods.  But for some it’s difficult to shift it, even when they follow a diet. That happens because the digestive organs are not able to transform fat into energy. In order to do that, the digestive system needs to be stimulated and warmed gently. This condition often goes with a weak body that needs to be strengthened.

Barley, Rye, Wheat bran breads – these foods make the stomach more efficient at digesting
Artichoke, asparagus, celery, cabbage, lettuce, endives, watercress – this group transforms fat into energy
Carrot, parsnip, pumpkin, squash, yam, turnip – this group soothes and stimulates the stomach
Onions and garlic – hot foods that “kick start” the digestion
Berries – berries nourish deeply and help to detox
Cardamom, cayenne, cinnamon – warm spices stimulate digestion
Basil, juniper, rosemary, sage – aromatic herbs “awaken” digestion
Blackeyed, broad beans, chickpeas, kidney beans – all beans work on the constitution
Anchovies, tuna and mackerel – fish is a tonic for the system but unlike meat, it balances excess water in the body
Dandelion, berry teas –  these teas dislodge, transform fat

 

This diet is not a substitute for diagnosed medical conditions – continue to use the recommended therapy
