Seeing things in a new light.



 
I had a lengthy and fabulous meeting with my new NUTRITIONIST yesterday.

I was told to eat between 12 and 12:30 and my meeting was at 2 p.m.  A urine sample, a spit test and an examination of my irises (a practice called "Iridology") told him quite a bit about me and what's eating me.  We talked about the objective and subjective things that may contribute to my weight loss.  It was such a relief to have a professional willing to listen to the whole picture rather than just tell you to burn more than you eat and send you on your way.  At this point in my journey I don't fit into the "box" for Weight Watchers so we are working on customizing a diet for me.

Apparently, the average person digests 80% of what they eat.  My metabolic efficiency was 67% (which the nutritionist said was more than he expected for me but still lacking) and there are signs of insulin resistance.

He explained that there are 5 types of eliminations in the body: the lungs, kidney, colon, lymphatic system and skin.  From my eye exam he could tell that the latter 3 were lacking.  I hardly sweat at all, and he could tell this from looking into my eyes!  To get my lymphatic system going I bought a natural SKIN BRUSH which I will slough dead skin with and utilize in little strokes upward toward my heart.

At this point, my body is toxic and we are going to concentrate on detoxifying it so it can begin to work more efficiently.   My sympathetic nervous system (the "fight or flight actions in the body") is dominant right now.  I need to get my parasympathetic nervous system (the "rest and digest" actions) to start working, which will aid in digestion and elimination.

Sam's philosophy is that combining protein and carbs in the same meal causes the body to have to work too hard. Animal protein relies of a acid environment in order to be broken down and starches require an alkaline environment, which are at opposite ends of the pH spectrum.  So, I am not going to be counting points or calories over the next 2 weeks.  Instead, I am going to focus on not eating starch with my protein (which includes corn, beans and lentils) and here is my customized plan for now:

Water:  He suggested no more than 6 oz. because it dilutes the digestive juices.  But I will drink 8 oz. and hour in between.
Breakfast:  An unsweetened protein shake made of egg whites
Snack:  Fruit
Lunch:  1/3 protein, 2/3 vegetables
Snacks: Nuts, seeds, guacamole, salsa, hummus, vegetable sticks, yogurt
Dinner:  1/3 starch and 2/3 veggies OR 1/3 fish (or lean protein) and 2/3 veggies

I have a list of the lower-carb vegetables and fruits which I will choose from.  I am also taking Mulit-herb and multi-fiber supplements as well as Super II and Digestzyme.

I'm REALLY excited to see if this works! I'm willing to look at things with a new perspective...stay tuned!
