roseknows asked: How do you feel about caloric restriction? In terms of losing weight and maintaining weight loss, I think CR is a very reasonable diet modification. The purported anti-aging benefits also intrigue me. In your efforts to beat cancer, did you ever try caloric restriction? If so, did you find yourself feeling healthier?

Even if you can't speak from experience, I am curious as to what your thoughts are because you are obviously a very health-conscious individual.

Also, sincere congratulations on being cancer-free. Your story is inspiring.

Hi Rose!  I agree that caloric restriction is a reasonable diet modification.  I don’t count calories, but the pricinples about eating clean healthy food are legit.

80% of my diet was raw fruits and vegetables. The only cooked food I ate was stuff like sweet potatoes, organic brown rice, and quinoa.  And some vegetables like asparagus, spinach, zucchini, squash, and eggplant.

If I could stress one thing above all else it’s that health is so much more important than weight.  If you focus on eating the healthiest diet on the planet you will lose weight in the process.

The amazing thing about The Raw Diet is you can stuff yourself with fruits and vegetables everyday and still lose weight, because you are eating nutrient dense, water-rich foods with low calorie counts.

Concentrated processed sugars and carbs are what get you: Breads, pasta, white potatoes, corn and of course junk foods.  They cause an insulin release which tells your body to store the excess sugars you just ate as fat.  When you cut sugar and carbs out of your diet, your body will convert to burning stored fat for energy.  It’s that simple. 

(Note: The sugar in fruit is absorbed slowly and does not trigger fat storage)

I written detailed posts about what I ate every day with cancer and still eat now.

Three super-easy super-healthy diet changes you can make are:

Juicing every day.  It curbs your appetite and delivers concentrated nutrients to your cells.

Giant Salads fill you up and give you the wide variety of raw vitamins minerals and nutrients that you aren’t getting enough of.

Coconut Fruit Smoothies made from coconut milk and packed with more nutrients and anti-oxidants from berries.

Health is about making good choices

Good morning!  

Just want to remind you of something you already know.  Your life and your body now, are the result of all the choices, good or bad, you’ve made up to this point.  The decisions you make today are creating your future life.  I’m eating healthy today because I want to be healthy tomorrow.  When you resist the temptation to eat junk food, you will be so proud of yourself.  If you give in, prepare for some self-loathing.  It doesn’t mean you’re a failure.  Just learn your lesson.  

Don’t set unrealistic standards for yourself and try to be perfect.   Follow the 80/20 rule.  It’s what you eat 80% of the time that matters most, which means it’s ok to reward yourself with some junky food every once and a while.  Just don’t binge.

Also if you plan your meals ahead of time, you won’t find yourself eating taco bell.

So make good choices already!
