Desperate to lose weight after I saw the photos of myself. I remember saying “ Who is this in the blue dress?” I couldn’t recognize myself. Experiencing menopausal weight gain after the age of 40? Let me show you how to lose weight without eliminating wheat and grains.
Did you know the way to lose weight with eating wheat and grains?
“Lose weight” is difficult after 40 years old as our body is not the same as before. Our metabolism has already slowed down since 25 years old. On top of that, your muscles become weaker and sleeping becomes shallower… all because of the shortage of estrogen (Women’s hormone).
However, there is a way to balance them! It seems like controlling insulin is the key. There are 4 major hormones that protect and control estrogen. Insulin is one of them.
What is Food Order?
“Food order” is simply the order in which you eat your food. What foods you eat first, and what foods you eat last. There are 5 major food categories; grains, vegetables, proteins, dairy and fruits.
This is how. Only 3 steps to follow…
Step 1: First, eat veggie!
Step 2: Then eat proteins
Step 3: last of all, eat wheat and gains
And then eat your dairy products and fruits after your grains if you have them.
That’s it! This simple food order will help you keep your insulin down and lose weight!
You have a regular roast dinner.
Step 1: First, eat some soup with some veggies, salad and any veggie dishes (Vegetable)
Step 2: Then, eat roast chicken (Protein)
Step 3: Finally, eat a roll of breads (Carbohydrate)
Any other cheese and desserts etc, you can enjoy a small amount of them after carbo.
What are more benefits?
5 benefits for lowering insulin!
- Lose weight (Restrain toxic fat)
- Smooth blood circulation
- Keep muscles strong
- Keep energy
- Aging slower
Easy! Just change eating the order of meals. That’s all.
The important thing is to start eating from veggies that keep insulin lower than start eating from carbohydrate.
I’ve notice when I eat veggies first, I feel full sooner than other orders. I also found myself lose weight with the food order after a month. No change the amount that I eat all meals! So, we can enjoy the moderation of wheat and grains and still lose weight. Fantastic!!
Now “Start from veggies” is our words every time we have meals!
