This quote from Hippocrates, a Greek physician born in 460 BC, sums up what more and more people are incorporating into their healthy lifestyle practices.  With all of the problems modern pharmaceuticals can cause with many side effects, not to mention the high costs, people are looking to food, herbs, and natural remedies to be healthy and heal.

There are many resources out there to help you start a more natural plan for health and wellness and many people are finding they need their medications less and less by incorporating a healthy eating and exercise regimen.  As always, please be sure to check with your doctor before ceasing any medications or making any major changes to your diet just to be safe…but if you get the go-ahead have fun!

Here are some helpful charts that can get you started on understanding how to arrange a healthy plate and what foods are beneficial:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you start eating healthy you should be feeling more energy, improved mood, and better sleep as a result.  Weight loss is also a part of the deal as your body begins to function properly and shed the excess weight once it is properly fed.

These days many more people are opting to follow a Vegan diet out of want instead of need.  It used to be that the only “non-meat” diet was a vegetarian one, but now vegan plans are everywhere.  Just to make sure everyone knows, many vegetarians still eat eggs and dairy products and some will even eat fish.  However, vegans eat nothing that is from an animal…not even their milk.  This means no eggs, milk, cheese, etc.

Vegans, as well as vegetarians, sometimes have a difficult time getting an adequate amount of protein into their diets so it’s important to make sure that supplementation with key vitamins is a part of your protocol.  Using quality sources of protein is also crucial to being health if you choose a vegan diet lifestyle.

Here are just a few you can incorporate:

Tofu                              Seitan                            Tempeh                          Soy Products

Nuts                              Seeds                             Beans                              Peas

Protein Powders          Protein Shakes           Vegan Meat Substitutes

Keep in mind that not all vegan proteins are created equal and some could pose issues with slow/stalled weight loss, especially on our drops protocol.  Also, just in general, keep a close eye on any artificial sweeteners used in vegan shakes and powders to make sure that Aspartame is NOT an ingredient.  It’s a pretty bad sweetener and Stevia or Sucralose is better.

Following a vegan diet plan isn’t so easy so we have put together some good alternatives that anyone (not just vegans) can use either exclusively or occasionally while on a diet and taking our products.  You can email [email protected] for an extensive list of these options and ask any questions you might have about any of our products or the diet.
