Shhh, Hear that? It’s Your Body Speaking

Many times when we change our diets our bodies go through it! Constant cravings, hunger pangs, you name it. Most of us take that craving for a burger and fries as a sign that our body ‘needs’ a certain food or we take that hungry feeling as a sign that this change isn’t for us, so we give in, fall off track and become discouraged. It will, however, take about three weeks for your body to adjust, so don’t take cravings as a sign that your body ‘needs’ a certain food, just reassess what you’ve been eating.

Maybe you’ve been stuck on salad for two weeks and that craving is a sign that you need to eat something different to give your body the nutrients it’s missing. It will be tough at first, but listen to your body, it won’t steer you wrong.

  1. I prefer to have fruits in the morning and denser foods in the evening. This allows fruits to be digested completely before ingesting foods that slow the digestive process, i.e., fats and starches as well as high protein foods.

    This plan has helped many of my patients who are interested in losing weight accomplish their goal. When you get used to eating this way it is easier to meatless for an entire day. This will bring you closer to transitioning eating vegan without quitting meat cold turkey. It also is a good way to make a healthy compromise if you are not willing to go all the way to a vegan life style.
