Making Eating Out Simple

You should apply the Makers Diet Concept to eating out as much as possible. I like to use phase one guide like
avoiding any carbs and only eating meat and vegetables with no dairy or refined sugar.
It can be done and if you have digestive enzymes make sure they are used and that they are whole food enzymes. No the kind that are packed with chemical additives and ingredients.

Taking certain precautions when eating out will indeed help you manage your weight and not crash from the foreign food. Do it for you you will be better for it and your trainer will thank you.

Here is what Dr. Mercola says about it:
1. Avoid eating out on holidays and Saturday nights. The volume of customers guarantees that most kitchens will be pushed beyond their ability to produce a high-quality meal.

2. There are almost never any sick days in the restaurant business. A busboy with a child to support isn't going to stay home and miss out on $100 because he's got strep throat.

3. When customers make personal attacks, adulterating food or drink is a convenient way for servers to exact covert vengeance. Waiters can and do spit in people's food.

4. Never say "I'm friends with the owner." Restaurant owners don't have friends. This marks you as a clueless poseur the moment you walk in the door.

5. Treat others as you want to be treated.

6. Don't snap your fingers to get attention.

7. Don't order meals that aren't on the menu. You're forcing the chef to cook something he doesn't make on a regular basis, and it won’t be as good.

8. Splitting entrées is okay, but don't ask for water, lemon, and sugar so you can make your own lemonade.

9. If you find a waiter you like, always ask to be seated in his or her section. Tell all your friends so they'll start asking for that server as well. The server will be grateful and take good care of you.

10. If you can't afford to leave a tip, you can't afford to eat in the restaurant.

11. Always examine the check. Sometimes large parties are unaware that a gratuity has been added to the bill, so they tip on top of it. Waiters "facilitate" this error.

12. If you want to hang out, that's fine. But increase the tip to make up for money the server would have made if he or she had had another seating at that table.

13. Never, ever come in 15 minutes before closing time. While you're chitchatting over salads, your entrées will be languishing under the heat lamp while the dishwasher is spraying industrial-strength, carcinogenic cleaning solvents in their immediate vicinity.

From Dr. Rubin

Most of us are aware that meats are proteins. Did you know, however, that proteins, one of the basic components of foods, help you feel more full than carbohydrates or fats? It is important, therefore, to eat adequate amounts of lean protein if you are wanting to help curb hunger and food intake.

Consuming meals rich in high-quality protein—preferably organic chicken, beef, lamb, dairy, eggs, and so on—will leave you feeling full and satisfied, which can support weight loss. Here’s why: chicken, beef, fish, and other high-protein foods slow the movement of food from the stomach to the intestine—and a stomach that slowly empties means you feel fuller longer and get hungrier later.

Even better, as it relates to weight management, is that grass-fed beef is high in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a fatty acid that appears to modestly reduce body fat, while preserving muscle tissue, according to researchers at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine. Additional good news is that grass-fed animals have 3 to 5 times more CLA than grain-fed animals.

But that’s not all that healthy proteins can do. Protein’s gentle, steady effect on blood sugar avoids that quick, steep rise in glucose levels that can occur after eating a rapidly-digestible carbohydrate like white bread or a baked potato. What’s more is that proteins provide for the transport of nutrients, oxygen, and waste throughout the body and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of cells, tissues, and organs.

Healthy sources of protein are organically raised cattle, sheep, goats, buffalo, and venison. Grass-fed beef is leaner and lower in calories than grain-fed beef. Organic beef is higher in healthy omega-3 fatty acids and important vitamins like vitamins B12 and E, and is much healthier than meat from hormone-injected cattle that eat pesticide-sprayed feed laced with antibiotics.

Fish with scales and fins caught from oceans and rivers are also lean sources of protein and provide the essential amino acids. Supermarkets are stocking these types of foods in greater quantities these days, and of course, they are found in natural food stores, fish markets, and specialty stores. Consuming fatty fish—wild salmon, mackerel, and sardines—comes with additional benefits. They also provide healthy omega-3 fats.

Protein—especially meat raised organically—is an essential part of a healthy diet. So…got meat? If not, be sure to get some so that you get your protein needs met daily.

Holistic Health

I want you all to know that if you have bad relationships whether in the past or present, this will negatively effect your overall health.
It will zap your energy right out of you leaving you on the brink of depression. You need to separate yourself from negative people or situations, to keep you from feeling the pull downward. By doing this you will keep your mind off of things that will trigger emotional trauma and help you to focus on other goals.
You will need to try and work on healing that area in your life i would recommend spiritual growth as it has been key in so many clients as well as my life.
I do this by spending time with my God, Jesus my savior. This has improved my family life and made me a better husband, person and business owner. You can't do it on your own you already know this, so stop trying. Seek that healing that can only come from Christ.
That is holistic health at its best and you will never want to leave that feeling behind.

There are several way to increase your energy no matter your level of fitness there are methods that will always deliver.

having your daily quota of water will keep things moving through and out of your body, this will prime it for detox in return keeping your body cleaner and more efficient.
Koombucha Tea,
there aren't many supplement type things I will tell you to do but this and probiotics are very important. Koombucha has probiotics in side because it is a cultured tea. It also aids your body in its defense from things that are unnatural or not a food at all.

One Woman's Astonishing Experiment With Aspartame

Victoria Inness-Brown’s family was addicted to diet soda. After researching the effects of aspartame, she strongly believed the artificial sweetener might one day lead to their illness or even their early deaths.

So she decided to perform her own aspartame experiment -- with 108 rats for 2 years and 8 months. Daily, she fed some of the rats the equivalent, for their body weight, of two-thirds the aspartame contained in 8-oz of diet soda.

Eleven of the females who took aspartame -- 37 percent -- developed tumors, some of massive size.

For details of Inness-Brown’s amazing experiment, click the link below.

Soy’s Health Benefits ONLY Apply to Fermented Soy!

As often as I’ve warned against nonfermented soy, such as fresh or dry whole soybeans, soy nuts, soy milk and tofu, I’ve also extolled the wonderful health benefits of traditionally fermented foods, and fermented soy is part of that pack.

After a long fermentation process, the phytic acid and antinutrient levels of the soybeans are reduced, and their beneficial properties – such as the creation of natural probiotics -- become available to your digestive system.

It also greatly reduces the levels of dangerous isoflavones, which are similar to estrogen in their chemical structure, and can interfere with the action of your own estrogen production.

So if you want to take advantage of the health benefits of soy, go ahead! Just make sure you’re eating the fermented varieties and avoid all nonfermented soy products.

Healthy options include:

Natto, fermented soybeans with a sticky texture and strong, cheese-like flavor. It's loaded with nattokinase, a very powerful blood thinner.

Natto is actually a food you could eat nearly every day as it is the highest source of vitamin K2 on the planet and has a very powerful beneficial bacteria, bacillus subtilis. It can usually be found in any Asian grocery store.
Tempeh, a fermented soybean cake with a firm texture and nutty, mushroom-like flavor.
Miso, a fermented soybean paste with a salty, buttery texture (commonly used in miso soup).
Soy sauce: traditionally, soy sauce is made by fermenting soybeans, salt and enzymes, however be wary because many varieties on the market are made artificially using a chemical process.

Healthy Bacteria In Your Appendix by dr. mercola

Your appendix is a small dead-end tube connected to a section of your large intestine. It has long been thought to be a vestigial remnant of some other organ, but there is little evidence for an appendix in our evolutionary ancestors. Few mammals have any appendix at all, and the appendices of those that do bears little resemblance to the human one.

Some researchers now believe that the appendix is a “safe house” for commensal bacteria, the symbiotic germs that aid digestion and help protect against disease-causing germs.

The appendix is isolated from the rest of the gut, with an opening smaller than a pencil lead. In times of trouble, such as an infection that flushes the system, these commensal bacteria could hide out there, ready to repopulate the gut when the danger is past.

Biofilms, colonies of beneficial microbes, form in your large intestine. They aid digestion and protect against infection, while enjoying the protection and nutrition of the human host. Researchers have found biofilms on the epithelial lining of the appendix as well.

It Starts At 1

People are always wondering why it takes so long after to lose the weight once they have made the decision to get healthy.

Well What you have to understand is your body receives things that it cannot process or digest so it stores it as if it is eating nothing at all. (starvation mode) This being the case you start storing at a very young age, it builds up over time. This waste is trapped and some of it very deeply trapped down in your fat.
Its going to take more than a few months to beat this, especially if you are over 35!!
This is the average age of a slow metabolism, and you'll need your metabolism to be at full power to lose weight.
This being said you will want to concentrate on optimizing your metabolism during the first 2 months but you will not be able to do it entirely because of the stored waste and toxins that have built up over time. They 2 ingredients Exercise and diet work together to achieve this. Once you are at your healthy body weight you can rest a little easier as long as you are still eating good (i.e. Makers Diet Phase Three)
you can use fitness to maintain your new figure with less effort.
Please remember that slow weight loss is permanent!! Do it for life.
