 DAY FOUR 

Welcome to Day Four.  

You are most likely experiencing the positive effects of eating less sugar, and if you’ve been follow the program each day is getting easier and easier here in BellyFit land.  So why quit sugar? Here are two great reasons:

  1.  Quitting sugar is a way of living without processed food. When you steer yourself away from sugar, it – by necessity – cuts out pretty much everything that comes in a packet or box. When people baulk at my no-sugar status, I calmly point out that I simply don’t eat garbage. It’s that elegant.
  2.  Quitting sugar is about eating like our great-grandparents used to, before the additives. This – again by necessity – sees us eating whole, un-mucked with foods that were commonplace before the advent of modern metabolic diseases. One hundred years ago we ate eggs for breakfast, soups or raw cheese and/or unprocessed meats at lunch, vegetables prepared simply, fruit as a treat and drank our milk whole and raw. One hundred years ago type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cholesterol issues were a much less significant problem.

…and the list goes on and on.  Other great benefits are:

*Rapid Weight Loss

*Elimination or marked decrease of cellulite

*Firming and tightening of facial skin

*Increased Circulation Contributing to a healthy GLOW

*Marked increase of energy throughout the day

*Feelings of Natural Euphoria

*Improvement in sleeping patterns

*Reduction of Wrinkles and Under eye Circles  

*Decrease in mood swings

*More comfortable menstrual cycle. 🙂 ….just to name a few of the things we get to enjoy as we continue to follow this program. 

Keep up the great work! 

After 20-30 minutes of cardio do the following…

Todays exercises are brought to you by Kristie’s Jumpstart 4 Women Program: 

Repeat the strength exercises 3 times from top to bottom.

KICK OFF Tip: Based on habit and addiction there will be many temptations you will need to find the strength to walk away from.  I know most of us think its our God given right to overindulge and/or have a bit here and there….yet, STOP IT! There is nothing pretty about gorging yourself into a food coma ever and throwing dietary caution to the wind in favor of  cookies, chips, and/or other non-food items.  It all seems harmless enough, yet such foods can create a domino effect on out health resulting in weight gain and a weakened immune system that can shut our body down for weeks with colds and flu. 
There is no reason for you to feel deprived following this program.  You’ll just need a different approach. Celebrate today with delicious, indulgent, yet properly combined meals, balanced with fresh vegetables.   
Here are some practical key tips that will help you avoid an agonizing food hangover:

  • Strive for good food combinations: If you’re a vegetarian, this is easy for you as you will stick to carb based meals.  
  • Choose the right starches: Avoid refined starches such as white bread, white rice, pasta, and potatoes.  Have sweet potatoes, avocados, or quinoa.
  • Drink 32-ounces of Green Lemonade: 16 ounces for Breakfast and 16 ounces for lunch. This will help curb any food craving. 
  • Have your pie and eat it, too: If you keep your food combinations simple, avoid overeating, and make sure to have some greens with your meal, you can enjoy some dark chocolate for dessert.  
  • Maintain Control: Don’t make a bad meal worse. Often when we overeat we think, ‘Oh well, I’ve been this bad…I may as well have another piece of pie!”  Before you know it, you’ve taken an moderately damaging meal and turned into a major burden on the body. A little indulgence is okay, don’t let it cause you to careen out of control. 

 Follow these basics and you’ll be able to rise and shine even leaner and healthier than you are today.
