Great info from the founder of the FASTer Way To Fat Loss®️ @amandatress.
“As you know by now, we have a big emphasis on food in the FASTer Way. We typically focus on what we SHOULD eat, instead of dwelling on what we avoid. It’s really important to understand exactly why we don’t eat certain foods, however, because it oftentimes takes a mindset shift.
Instead of saying, “I can’t have this,” I prefer saying, “I don’t eat this because it doesn’t serve my body well or improve my health.” This is exactly why we avoid gluten and dairy in the FASTer Way. Both are highly inflammatory—whether or not you can feel the symptoms!
Inflammation is a natural response in the body to keep us safe from infection, viruses, and bacteria. When the body detects a threat, chemicals and white blood cells will be released to fight it off. Chronic inflammation, which can result from eating a diet containing inflammatory foods, can lead to problems such as tissue damage, high blood pressure, joint problems, and even the growth of abnormal cells (cancer!), among other issues.
So the next time you feel sad about not eating bread or cheese, shift your mindset. Don’t look at it as what you can’t have, look at it as a simple way to feel better, avoid inflammation, and be kind to your body.
Now, does this mean these foods are off limits forever? No! As with sugar, look at it as an occasional treat, not a staple in your diet. You know I love my donuts, and I don’t go for “healthy” versions. I eat regular donuts, I simply do it with intention.” I hope you’ll join me in the 6 week program starting December 31st. Let’s Do this!!
