The Seattle weight loss program Slender For Life™ has been talking about the New Four Food Groups for years. Using weight loss hypnosis you can stop the madness of high fat, high calories food and create a healthy desire for fruit, legumes, whole grains and vegetables. You can easily learn how to hypnotize yourself at Hypnosis Health Info using the hypnosis videos and hypnosis MP3 resources. My hypnosis book, Becoming Slender For Life starts you in the discovery of the endless possibilities for meals using the New Four Food Groups by teaching you a quick and easy hypnosis induction.
Many of us grew up with the USDA’s old Basic Four food groups, first introduced in 1956. The passage of time has seen an increase in the knowledge about the importance of fiber, the health risks of cholesterol and fats, and the disease-preventive power of many nutrients found exclusively in plant-based foods. The Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine also has discovered that the plant kingdom provides excellent sources of the nutrients once only associated with meat and dairy products—namely, protein and calcium.
The Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM) developed the New Four Food Groups in 1991. This no-cholesterol, low-fat plan supplies all of an average adult’s daily nutritional requirements, including substantial amounts of fiber.
FRUIT: 3 or more servings a day. Fruits are rich in fiber, vitamin C, and beta-carotene. Be sure to include at least one serving each day of fruits that are high in vitamin C—citrus fruits, melons, and strawberries are all good choices. Choose whole fruit over fruit juices, which do not contain very much fiber. Serving size: 1 medium piece of fruit • 1/2 cup cooked fruit • 4 ounces juice
LEGUMES: 2 or more servings a day. Legumes, which is another name for beans, peas, and lentils, are all good sources of fiber, protein, iron, calcium, zinc, and B vitamins. This group also includes chickpeas, baked and refried beans, soy milk, tempeh, and texturized vegetable protein. Serving size: cup cooked beans • 4 ounces tofu or tempeh • 8 ounces soy milk
WHOLE GRAINS: 5 or more servings a day. This group includes bread, rice, tortillas, pasta, hot or cold cereal, corn, millet, barley, and bulgur wheat. Build each of your meals around a hearty grain dish—grains are rich in fiber and other complex carbohydrates, as well as protein, B vitamins, and zinc. Serving size: 1/2 cup rice or other grain • 1 ounce dry cereal • 1 slice bread
VEGETABLES: 4 or more servings a day. Vegetables are packed with nutrients; they provide vitamin C, beta-carotene, riboflavin, iron, calcium, fiber, and other nutrients. Dark green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, collards, kale, mustard and turnip greens, chicory, or cabbage are especially good sources of these important nutrients. Dark yellow and orange vegetables such as carrots, winter squash, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin provide extra beta-carotene. Include generous portions of a variety of vegetables in your diet. Serving size: 1 cup raw vegetables • 1/2 cup cooked vegetables
The major killers of Americans—heart disease, cancer, and stroke—have a dramatically lower incidence among people consuming primarily plant-based diets. Weight problems—a contributor to a host of health problems—can also be brought under control by following the New Four Food Group recommendations.
