Click on the Food Groups

In the very first session of weight loss hypnosis with Slender For Life™ we talk about what your food should like like on your plate. Eating the right foods is essential for both health and weight loss. The good news is that healthy eating can be tasty, fun, easy and affordable. With hypnosis for weight loss you can lose weight and keep it off.

There is so much confusion about what you should or shouldn’t eat. Mounting scientific research shows that plant based eating is the healthiest way to eat and the safest and most long lasting way to lose weight permanently.  When you learn self hypnosis you can support healthy new lifestyle changes.

What it looks like on your plate

To insure complete nutrition, one of the easiest to follow overall guides is the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s (PCRM) New Four Food Groups. Devised in 1991, the New Four Food Groups assures an adequate mix of amino acids, essential fats, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals by building the menu from grains, vegetables, legumes (beans, peas, and lentils) and fruits.

Put these groups together in the following amounts for every 1,200 calories in your daily diet:

Whole grains: 3 or more servings (1 serving=1/2 cup hot cereal, 1 ounce dry cereal, 1 slice bread).
Vegetables: 5 or more servings (1 serving=1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked).
Fruits: No more than 2 servings per day (1 serving=1 medium piece of fruit, 1/2 cup cooked fruit, 1/2 cup fruit juice).
Legumes: 2 to 3 servings (1 serving=1/2 cup cooked beans, 4 ounces tofu or tempeh, 8 ounces soymilk).

In this simple plan, animal products are no longer considered dietary essentials and are best eliminated completely. It is also recommended that vegetable oils be kept to a minimum. Start with the grain. About one third to one half of your plate should be rice, noodles, corn, etc., or if you prefer, substitute a starchy vegetable, such as a potato. Next, fill about a quarter of your plate with two different vegetables, such as carrots and a green vegetable—these are vitamin powerhouses. The final quarter of your plate should be filled with legumes: beans, lentils, peas, etc. Fruits make great desserts and snacks. Add a daily multiple vitamin or any other reliable source of vitamin B12, and you’re set with complete nutrition.

I have frequently said that radical change creates radical results and that moderate change creates moderate results. But for some, making a radical change to plant based eating is just too much. If you are one of these people who can’t imagine eating plant strong food, then I encourage you to add more of one vegetable every day.

When you learn hypnosis you learn how to be in control of your own thoughts, emotions and behaviors so that you do desire the plant based food that supports you in health. Weight loss hypnosis really can work for you.
