A very important aspect of your own weight loss is your living a life of compassion. Compassion, love and other such qualities that are good enrich your chemistry in a way that very few substances can match. When your heart is filled with compassion, that means that your mind is pure. In order to fill your heart with compassion, your mind has to become more conscious and more awake. Compassion sets us free from our own suffering.
A blind pursuit of protein is a BIG mistake in many diets. Protein is a lousy source of fuel because it doesn’t convert easily into glucose, and glucose is the only source of fuel your brain can use. Your body can utilize only so much protein, and the leftovers are stored as toxins or eliminated as waste. You don’t need to consume flesh, eggs, or dairy every day to obtain protein. This is a myth. If you consume enough calories from a varied diet consisting mostly of vegetation, you’re probably getting enough protein.
Including raw juices in our daily diets is a fabulous antidote to toxins we encounter. Green juices neutralize acids and all raw juices make it easier to maintain blood alkalization. The main benefit of drinking raw juice is that if it helps us skip one or more crappy meals a day, we’re 1,000 times better off! We recommend drinking as much juice as possible. Drinking juice and maintaining a sensible diet that excludes processed food is a critical step toward optimal health.
Juice in its natural raw form will never harm you. In fact, the more of it that you drink while you stay on a routine, the more you might find your cravings for processed food or high amounts of protein to be reduced.
Coffee has two types of effects—its physical effects and its effects on the personality. Some of us really feel that we desperately need the edge it gives us. But we’re drinking it excessively, not being mindful when we drink it, and we’re in denial about the negative effect that it has on our body chemistry.
