LamberJules.com is my experience with losing weight, getting healthy, and taming my inner chubby chick so my inner skinny chick can shine.
After many failed diets and yo-yo dieting for years, I started having health issues related to food intolerance. I found that I was food sensitive to many of the foods I was eating which caused inflammation inside my body and physical outward side effects of seborhheic dermatitus, eczema, dandruff, restless sleep, lethargicness.
I stumbled onto raw food eating by accident when I was researching healthy diets. I saw a website that showed before and after pictures of people who started eating a primarily raw food diet which changed their life. Many of them lost weight - but what I really noticed was their skin was clear, radiant, and
healthy, and their eyes were bright, and hair was shiny. The differences were amazing from the way they looked prior to eating raw and then how they looked afterwards.
I was intrigued by their transformation.
I then discovered green smoothies and began reading more about the amazing effects of eating green smoothies which lead to eating raw foods. I poured through the Internet, YouTube.com, and books reading about raw food eating. Eating a raw food diet just seemed the most natural next step on my path to getting healthy, losing weight, and releasing food issues and toxins.
I journaled my way through a 90 day raw food challenge and then assessed how I felt afterwards, then decided if I wanted to continue eating 100% raw or maybe 80% raw and eating 20% cooked foods, but completely vegan.
After a year after embarking on the raw food journey, I had balanced my eating between eating raw foods (primarily green smoothies), salads, and organic cooked foods. My truth is eating organic foods and eating healthy whether that be through cooked foods or raw foods.
My quest was to find what worked for my body type. Eating vegan and mostly vegetarian didn’t serve me very well. My blood results came back as huge protein deficiencies.
Still needing to lose weight I embarked on a path with the Ideal Protein Diet and Ideal Protein protocol. It simply is eating enough protein to support your muscles as you lose weight and allowing your pancreas to rest so you aren’t constantly producing glycogen. It’s working!
My truth is that I know how to lose weight and I know how to eat healthy. It’s my inner chubby chick that needs to realize that my inner skinny chick is stronger. I’m taming my inner chubby chick. She has a lot of progress to make.
My inner skinny chick is getting stronger and stronger with each day that I stay 100% committed to my plan and reaching my goal!
