Call To Action Eat ALL You Want AND Still Lose Weight

Call To Action Eat ALL You Want AND Still Lose Weight


Well I’ve completed the book, EAT TO LIVE
by Dr. Joel Fuhrman……

Tomorrow Diane and I start the
plan to Eat To Live…..

We are going on a cruise Dec 14-21…but
Until then…… we’re on it….

Then when we return… we’ll do it again…

So, here’s what we’re doing:

  1. RAW VEGETABLES: The Salad is the
    main dish… eat two EVERY DAY…..
    at least a pound DAILY…
    REASON: Raw foods have a faster transit
    time through the digestive tract and
    result in a lower glucose response.
    OBJECTIVE: Eat as many RAW vegetables
    as possible.
  2. COOKED VEGETABLES:  Eat as many
    steamed or cooked green vegetables
    as you can. THE MORE YOU EAT THE
    MORE YOU LOSE-Joel Fuhrman.  Again
    the goal is to eat at least a full pound
  3. BEANS AND LEGUMES: These are among
    the world’s most perfect foods.
    RESULTS: Stabilize blood sugar, blunt the
    the desire for sweets, and prevents mid-
    afternoon cravings.  Eat ONE FULL CUP
  4. FRESH FRUIT: Eat at least 4 fresh fruits every
  5. NUTS: Raw, unsalted nuts, ONE OUNCE daily.
  6. OFF LIMITS: Dairy products, animal products, between-meal snacks, fruit juice and oils.

OK…that’s it….sounds simple so LET’S do it!!!

Call To Action –Eat To Live- 6 Week Plan


I’m almost finished reading the
book Eat To Live, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.


It’s been and eye opener for me in
that it’s showing how to reverse most
of the health conditions men my age
are experiencing.


I’m happy to report that I don’t have
any illnesses, I don’t take any Meds
and I do work out at the gym 3-5
days a week….. and I’m 70 years old.


I certainly haven’t eaten right all these
years and I gained weight that I shouldn’t
have gained…. And I’ve lost it…. Several
times…… as most of us have.


This book has shown me that I can eat
all I want….. and be satiated from
over eating ….. and still lose weight or
maintain my desired weight.


The key is to EAT TO LIVE…. By eating
the right foods and AVOIDING the
wrong foods….


So…. Tonight I’m giving you the EAT

TO LIVE Six-Week eating plan.  During
this time… if you have high cholesterol,
high blood pressure, high triglycerides…
If you have type-2 diabetes,,,have excess
body fat….. If you have hormonal
imbalances, glucose absorption issues,
varicose veins, hemorrhoids and
constipation…….these conditions can
be brought under control or at
least get you moving in the right
direction during this six week period.


Here’s what to do…..


Eat all you want…. (of these foods)
+ raw vegetables (force yourself
to eat at least 1lb daily) –I like this!
+cooked greens and non-green
nutrient-rich vegetables (1lb. daily)
-these veggies are: eggplant, mushrooms,
peppers, onions, tomatoes, carrots,

+beans, legumes, bean sprouts (1 cup daily)
+fresh fruits at least 4 daily.


Eat Limited amounts of these foods.

+cooked starchy vegetables or whole grains:
– butternut and acorn squash, rice, sweet
potatoes, cereal (not more than one
serving or one cup daily.) Use coconut or
almond milk preferably.

+raw nuts and seeds, 1 oz daily
+avocado, 2 oz daily

+dried fruit, 2 table spoons daily
+ground flaxseed, 1 tablespoon daily



+dairy products
+animal products
+between-meal snacks
+fruit juice (eat the fruit)


NOTE: these are the recommendations given
by Dr. Fuhrman and he does NOT believe in
MODERATION…. In fact he says….
Moderation KILLS…..


SO…. Take these guidelines and stick to them
for just six weeks.


Do this:

  1. 1.     Weigh yourself.
  2. 2.     Calculate your BMI.
  3. 3.     Subtract 24 from your BMI
    and Multiply that number by
    six(6)…. This will determine your
    desired weight.
    NOTE: athletes and muscular framed
    folks can and should use other measures.

NOTE 2…. Dr. Fuhrman uses another measure:

(MEN: 105 lbs for first five feet of height and
add 5 lbs for every inch over 5 feet.
WOMEN: 95 lbs for the first 5 feet of height
and add 4 lbs for every inch over 5 feet.

+man 5’8” should weigh 145 lbs
+woman 5’4” should weight 111 lbs.
(These weights seem low, but lean
people live longer)


Ok… that’s it for tonight…. Remember last
night I wrote about the PAIN OF DISCIPLINE,
and what it takes to accomplish great things.


Well… this requires the same effort.

Reminds me of Internet Marketing…. Same thing
here…. Discipline, structure, action…..

I love what Tom Peters wrote in his book
In Search Of Excellence…… READY, FIRE, AIM…


So….let’s get started… and make adjustments
along the way….

Call To Action – What About Insulin?



Gosh I’m learning something new every day…..

Not just about Eating To Live, but about
Blogging and getting the blogs read!!!!

AND about working from home doing what I love!

Sound good?? (later)




Keep them short and to the point!!!!!

Especially around holiday time……


So Tonight it’s going to be short!!!


Last night we discussed how insulin is needed
to basically “feed our cells with nutrients”. 

  1. 1.     Insulin is the storage hormone that drives nutrients into cells.

But Excess Insulin causes us to get FAT!!!
(sounds like we’re talking about calories).



The key to effective eating is to eat foods that help
to level out our blood sugar and eat foods that
have been shown to decrease inflammation.


Let’s look at some of the foods that will help us
achieve our goal of leveling our sugar.



Protein & Fats-Protein should become a key
foundational element of our new eating plan.
Omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce internal
inflammation, a key factor in reversing insulin
resistance. Beans and peas are incredible food
sources as well. The combination of protein and
fiber really help to satisfy while providing slow
burning fuel to further stem insulin spikes.


Almonds. The health benefits of almonds make
them a perfect snack to add to your daily eating habit.
We should carry a baggie of plain raw almonds with us
all day and snack at will. In addition organic eggs are a
great source of protein packed insulin leveling foods.


Fruits-Fruits are important, yes, but are considered sugars.
We need to be choosy about the ones we eat. We want to
make sure you choose low sugar ones such as Pears, apples,
berries (the darker the better), plums, peaches, pomegranates,
and Avocado’s. The avocado may just be the king of the fruit
as its ability to lower cholesterol while preventing insulin spikes.


Vegetables– Don’t skimp on the green and brightly colored
vegetables, to provide almost ALL of our carbohydrate
intake. Also choose to eat at least two green salads daily.


Wholegrain starches-Always choose whole grains for our
starches and AVOID ALL processed foods. The ones that
make our preferred list include rolled oats, sweet
potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, and pot barley.
