First Meal

Most people equate first meal with breakfast. Breaking the fast of sleeping eight to ten hours. I’ve never been one for eating first thing in the morning and now that I am implementing an 18 hour intermittent fasting plan into my lifestyle breaking my fast later in my day makes sense for me.

What you eat for your first meal will create the kind of day you will have. Since being on a sometimes raw vegan high fat (keto) plan to having a cooked first meal of flax seeds, essential mix, protein bowl, I’m creating the desired impact for my day.

Think about it for a moment

What’s in your first meal/breakfast? Sugary cereal (insulin rush and cravings for more) , a venti vanilla latte (insulin overload and belly fat ignition), a plain coffee with butter or coconut oil (pure acid), or how about that bottle of cola (rust remover and weapon of mass destruction). These are all acidic and will shave years off your life.

Having a first meal that’s alkaline and filled with nutritional ingredients helps your cells create energy by giving them what they desire most. Be good to your cells and your cells will be good to you.

You don’t always have to have a smoothie for your first meal, but with the limitless combinations of veggies and fruits you’ll never run out of ideas. You can have a nice warming porridge as your first meal that’s vegan, plant based, high fat (keto), grain free, and good protein.

    4 EASY STEPS TO BANISH BELLY FAT

    • STAY AWAY FROM LEAVENING AGENTS, SUGAR, DAIRY, AND MOST GRAINS:

    Yeast, baking powder, and baking soda makes bread rise, it will do the same thing to your belly.

     Sugar: is a stimulant that causes our hormones to be unbalanced which makes fat storage easier. So every time you eat something that is sugar (this includes HFCS, and artificial sweeteners even powdered stevia) sweetened you are helping your fat storage system. So if you are in the menopausal state of life, or under stress, eating sugar will help you store more fat, especially in your belly!

    Dairy: I know everyone; everywhere is touting the benefits of Greek yogurt, and how dairy is so good for you. Yes organic is always better. But if you are lactose intolerant, or allergic to dairy, you should not be ingesting dairy. Lactose intolerant people who eat dairy will have more belly fat than those who don’t because of the bloating that accompanies eating dairy. There are other ways to get the calcium you need without subjecting yourself to this form of abuse. (Kale: 205 mg per ½ cup; Chia Seeds: 300 mg per 1.5 oz; Bok Choy: 190 mg per ½ cup; Figs: 135 mg per 5 figs; White beans: 120 mg per ½ cup; Spinach: 99mg per ½ cup; Almonds: 93 mg per ¼ cup; Sesame Seeds: 51 mg per tablespoon)

    Grains: Wheat is the worst because it has been genetically modified for over 40 years to have more gluten (protein) in it. This genetic manipulation has led to many people becoming gluten intolerant. Gluten bloats and causes the body to hold onto that fat. Try going off all grains: wheat, flours, oats, rice, and cornmeal: and anything made with them for 1 month and see what transforms in your body.

    • WATER, WATER, WATER

    In order to flush the fat from our bodies we NEED WATER! If you’re not drinking half of your body weight in ounces of water daily, you will not lose weight. Water mobilizes fat. Plain and simple!

    • EXERCISE, EXERCISE, EXERCISE

    Sitting and dreaming of belly fat running away from your body will not make it so. Our bodies need to be in motion to get rid of the fat. The more muscle we have the more fat we burn. Find some form of exercise you like to do and keep doing it. I love lifting weights and doing insanity work outs. I work on my Abdominal muscles 6 days a week. The great benefit from doing this is that my back stopped hurting and I dropped 2 sizes in 6 weeks.

    If you have never tried this product you are missing out on its life changing possibilities. Want some extra help in losing that Belly Fat, take ASEA. Why? Because it mobilizes fatty acids from the fat stores in our abdominal region. Which translates into more belly fat being burned for energy while we exercise. For more information on ASEA click here
