Weight Loss Meal Plans

This is part 8 and the conclusion of a series on weight loss meal plans. We showed 6 weeks worth of meal plans to get you started right on your weight loss plan!

Bread

The best bread to use while on the Diet Solution plan is sprouted whole grain bread. If you do not have access to sprouted grain bread, you can also choose rice bread or spelt bread. Here are a few brands that I have found to be good choices. Sources include health food stores (often in the freezer section) and the following:

• Food for Life brand’s Ezekiel 4:9 organic sprouted whole grain products (www.foodforlife.com)
• Manna bread
• Trader Joe’s
• Whole Foods Market

Dairy

Choose raw organic dairy products. The following Web sites provide information about obtaining raw organic dairy products in the United States:

• A Campaign for Real Milk (www.realmilk.com)
• Organic Pastures (www.organicpastures.com)
• The Weston A. Price Foundation (www.westonaprice.org)

Meats, Poultry and Fish

All of the animal protein you choose should be hormone- and antibiotic-free, organic, and preferably grass-fed. Sources include local health food stores, many supermarkets and the following:

• U.S. Wellness Meats (www.grasslandmeats.com)
• Vital Choice (www.vitalchoiceorganics.com)

Nut Butter

Choose nut butters (e.g., almond, walnut, cashew, or macadamia nut) made from raw (not roasted) organic nuts. Sources include local health food stores and the following:

Oil

For high-heat cooking, coconut oil is your best choice. It should be certified organic, unrefined, no chemicals (including hexane) added, unbleached, not deodorized, not hydrogenated, made from traditional coconut palms only (no GMO varieties), and cold-pressed (no heat used in the extraction process). Sources include local health food stores and the following:

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (www.nutiva.net)
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (www.vivapurashop.com)

For medium-heat cooking (sautéing) and use straight from the bottle (on salads and cooked foods), choose organic extra-virgin olive oil. It should be cold-pressed, cloudy (unrefined), and sold in a dark bottle. Sources include local health food stores and the following:

Organic EVOO. (http://evoo.vitalchoiceorganics.com)
Bragg EVOO (www.truefoodsmkt.com)
Whole Foods Market

Omega-3 Supplements

Cod liver oil should be taken in the winter because of its higher vitamin D content. (Although our bodies synthesize vitamin D from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, sun exposure typically is insufficient during the winter.) The softgel is more stable than the liquid, which goes rancid quickly and should be kept in the refrigerator. Take according to instructions on the bottle. Fish oil should be taken in the summer because of its lower vitamin D content. The softgel is more stable than the liquid, which goes rancid quickly and should be kept in the refrigerator. Take according to instructions on the bottle, or 1 milliliter for every 10 pounds of body weight (1 teaspoon = 5 milliliters).

Krill Oil has been found to have much better absorption in the body than many fish oils. It is extremely high in Omega 3 fats and in antioxidants. The following brands, available at local health stores and online, are tested by independent laboratories for the absence of heavy metals:

• Krill Oil (available from Prograde – http://fishoil.getprograde.net)
• Sockeye Salmon softgels (http://salmonoil.vitalchoiceorganics.com)

Salt

Choose pure unrefined sea salt with no additives, preferably Celtic sea salt. Sources include local health food stores and the following:

Celtic Sea Salt brand (www.celticseas.com)
Redmond’s Real Salt

Stevia

Many stevia formulations are available (e.g., liquid, powder, powder plus inulin fiber). The liquid extract is ideal for all beverages, and the powders are ideal for baking. Powders are suitable for use in hot liquid but may not dissolve in cold liquids. Read packages to determine which product is right for you and the correct amounts to use in recipes. Sources include local health food stores and the following:

Steviva (www.stevivasweetener.com)
Whole Foods Market (in the supplement section)

Water Filtration Systems

Our bodies absorb water not only from food and drink but also through the skin, the body’s largest organ. You should filter water for bathing as well as for drinking and cooking (i.e., at the kitchen sink). A whole-house filtration system takes care of this and more; it is installed where the main water line enters the home and filters the water before it flows throughout your plumbing system. A good online resource is the following:

Sun Water Systems (www.sws-aquasana.com) sells Aquasana brand products for kitchen, bathroom, and whole-house water filtration as well as glass bottles for water storage.

Weight Loss Meal Plans Conclusion

I hope you have enjoyed this series and that it has been helpful to you. Remember to do the very best you can with whichever foods are available to you. You may not be able to find every single food I have listed, but that is ok! I have never had a
client not lose weight because they had to make 1 or 2 adjustments. More importantly, make the majority of your food choices “all natural” and follow the recommended portion sizes and food combinations. I know from personal experience with hundreds of clients that even following the above plans at 90% proves amazing results.

What you’ve learned here is just the beginning. Are you ready to take charge of your weight and your health once and for all? Are you ready to feel the best you have ever felt? Then, check out the video below for more information on The Diet Solution Program Manual today. Don’t let one more day go by without living the incredible life you’ve dreamed about.
