By following the seven-day outline below you will feel better, gain clarity of mind, increase your energy, and improve your health. The following eating plan provides step-by-step instructions on how to eliminate sugar and carbs from your diet. The sixth article in this series, Harmful vs. Beneficial Foods for Optimum Health and Weight, helped you understand what foods are beneficial versus harmful; now this article will provide an implementation plan.
My sister followed the Seven-Day Eating Plan and after a week of being off sugar, she felt more energetic. She also noticed her joint pain was gone and she no longer passed gas. The first week was tough, but she did it. If you work, I recommend starting this program on a Wednesday so you can rest on the weekend. The first few days will be difficult (similar to a drug addict coming off of a drug), but with the help of Christ, prayer, an accountability partner (Support System Crucial to Health Transformation), and these guidelines you can succeed!
Seven-Day Eating Plan
Day 1 (Start on Wednesday)
1. Consume Water
Drink up to two cups of coffee or tea per day, but no more. The only other beverage you should drink is filtered water. Before breakfast drink two glasses of water, two before lunch, two midafternoons, and two more before dinner. Do not drink during meals and do not drink anything after dinner. Drink up to ten minutes before eating.
2. Take a Probiotic
Begin taking a probiotic every day. Buy a probiotic from a health food store with at least ten different strains of beneficial bacteria.
3. Stop Eating High-Sugar Foods
Stop eating anything containing greater than 10 grams of sugar per serving. Check labels for the number of grams of sugar per serving size. You can find information regarding sugar substitutes here.
