It seems that yesterday's posting about the elimination diet got a few people riled up.
Seems that they simply don't agree with the lady's judgement of my 'fad' diet and wanted me to share their thoughts.
Ok. Here we go.
Your diet (or healthy eating plan), diet has such negative connotations doesn't it.?
Well, it's just great.!
From it I have discovered, that although I love bread, lovely crusty cobs, warm bloomers, a gorgeous sandwich loaf, hot from the oven..... I could go on. It doesn't love me. I cannot eat a single piece of processed sliced bread, although if it's fresh from the bakery, I can have a small slice. If I bake it myself, well I can have a whole slice.
Not only have I discovered that I can bake my own bread, (I can do anything), as well as Chelsea buns, danish pasties, sundried tomato and olive bread, I have even attempted croissants, lovely they were, (I only had half) but the children loved them.
I don't eat potatoes, rice or pasta anymore. But I have discovered couscous, bulgar wheat and other lovely substitutes. I have always drank a lot of water, and eaten a lot of fruit and veggies. my biggest downfall is my sweet tooth, and I admit that on occasion I succumb and have a couple of squares of dark chocolate.
I have lost fat, and I feel healthier, however............. I have also discovered ME.
Your healthy eating plan has given me the courage of my convictions. I am in the middle of a complete career change, my children are leaving home to go to university and I am leaving the boring me behind to become a big ME. I can do anything I put my mind to.
Next year, (once I have settled into my new career), I am going to learn skydiving and windsurfing. I am going to buy my partner flying lessons for his birthday, he has also taken up track car racing.
We are planning also to move to France within the next few years, and have already put in an offer on a property over there.
You and your 'diet' have changed my life.
Not only in the knowledge of healthy eating but in the fact that live is for living, and you just have to get up and go do it. Thank you for everything"
"PS incidently I dropped two dress sizes on the healthy eating plan, and am no longer plagued with terrible stomach ache. "
"...I have really tested this diet out, and I feel amazingly healthy for the first time in a long time. I sleep better.
I eat well.
I don't crave crap, which seems to happen when you eat rubbish.I don't criticise people for wanting to fill their bodies with rubbish, breathe and eat toxins etc, but I am definitely converted to the right kind of living, and very happy that you were kind enough to share your knowledge with the rest of us.
You can quote me....
Firing a few bullets at the large round dartboard shaped bottoms in society is OK by me, as long as the butt is not mine! Take careBlessings,"
I’m getting excited,
Week 3 and I’ve lost 7Lb and 10.5 inches. Total.
I’m loving this diet and everyone who has seen the change in my weight wants to know about it.
Don’t care about re-introducing anything else. I love the whole food. "
having started the eliminantion diet i have dropped a dress size and lost a total of 6 inches
I feel great, and won't ever go back to caffeine.
I have more energy, sleep better and my performance in sports has dramatically improved.
in 12 days I have lost 10 pounds. This makes me I pound lighter than I have been in 35 years. "
Look, these are just a few emails I got back yesterday and there are a ton more.
The long and the short of it is this...
Over the years I've been a personal trainer I've seen the personal training industry develop into a fad-led circus of sorts with many, many a gadget, gizmo, exercise plan or diet being little more than a marketing tool to make more money for those who're selling them.
Now, don't get me wrong, I want to become very wealthy and I've done pretty well for myself over the last few years, but I'm interested in one thing and one thing only.
If filling your face with Big Mac every day worked then I'd be promoting THAT, but it doesn't.
I have no 'hidden agenda' with the elimination diet. How can I? I don't even sell it, I give it away for free and have done so to over 15,000 people so far.
There are no 'elimination diet supplements' or protein shakes or vitamins or pills or powders for me to make money from either, I do this because I'm passionate about sharing a dietary system that, I believe, has a massive power to benefit so many of us in pretty much any area of health that we could imagine (the fact that it helps you lose weight is a bonus in my eyes).
If you're sceptical, that's fine. But try it and see for yourself before you dismiss it ok?
