There are no shortcuts when it comes to health and you are bucking all of the preconceptions and stereotypes of how Americans should eat.
Two weeks down, and two to go!
Can you believe how fast time has flown? The end is within sight and I trust you will give it your all to the finish line. There are no shortcuts when it comes to health and you are bucking all of the preconceptions and stereotypes of how Americans should eat. I appreciate each of you for having an open mind and helping The Engine 2 Diet become an All-American diet for a country whose health is coming apart at the seams.
Fire Cadets: Last to go – extracted oils. Despite popular belief that oils are good for you, especially Olive Oil, the truth is all oils provide the most concentrated source of calories on the plant. Up to 120 calories per tablespoon! “Heart healthy” olive oil is 15% saturated fat.
What to think about this week:
You have a lot to be proud of! You have kicked to the curb meat, dairy, and refined foods. These dietary villains of your old diet that rob you of your health, including, dangerous trans and saturated fats, artery clogging dietary cholesterol, acid producing and tumor promoting animal protein, worthless refined foods, junky simple carbohydrates, and disease promoting free radicals. In their place you picked up fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes; the dietary super heroes that are healing and restoring your health; healthy unsaturated fats, friendly plant protein, wholesome complex carbohydrates, disease zapping antioxidants, and powerful and healing phyto-chemicals.
