1950’s Diet Revisited

Good afternoon!

Two years ago I wrote two posts.   How to Look Like a 1950s Hour Glass Shaped Model; the 1950s Diet and Part 2-–the 1950s Diet.  At the time Mr. C and I were the healthiest and fittest we’d ever been by following the plan I spoke about in those posts.

And then life happened.   Ahhhhh… let’s just say that since then things had gone down hill.   Way down hill.

Mr. C and I have made incredible progress back toward health using our Evolv Reboot Program, but it’s time to get completely on board with the whole food nutrition plan that goes along with it.  It’s time to do this like our lives depend on it.  (They very well could!)

Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live plan completely meshes with the Evolv food guide, so it’s time to get back on track with our ETL plan, starting with the 6-week plan to lose 20 pounds.   Last time we started with the 6-week plan Mr. C dropped over 25 lbs and I let go of about 17-18 pounds. It was enough to get us very inspired.   After the 6 weeks, the plan gets much easier.   But it’s that initial big loss that gets you on track.

This time it should be even easier because we will have the added convenience of the Lifebar that we’ve grown to know and love.   This plan can absolutely be done without the Lifebar, but for me, as I am always on the run, having them in my purse will make it easier to stay on track with a whole-food plant-based plan, and away from my nemesis– pizza.   You might want to check them out too.  They’re the most nutritionally complete, whole-food bar you will find on the market (as far as we’ve been able to see or find.)

We’ll be beginning hard core again on Sunday.  I will be following the vegan plan since my stomach hates meat.  Mr. C will be including meat and a tiny bit of dairy.   I thought it’d be fun to share some recipes and such for that plan along with status updates on our Facebook Page.    If we get enough interest, we can even start a little side group.  I’ve also included an Eat to Live/Vegan tab on our Pinterest Page where we will collect and share info and recipes as well.

If you are not familiar with the Eat to Live plan, you really owe it to yourself to invest in the book Eat to Live, by Dr. Fuhrman.   He has saved tens of thousands of people from heart surgery using this method and even more from obesity and a huge amount of affiliated issues. People lose 100s of pounds on this plan–all while eating until you are satisfied.  No hunger.

You can learn more about Dr. Fuhrman at his website:  www.Drfuhrman.com

Let us know if you decide to join us on this fun journey toward health!

Note: The links provided for Evolv and the Lifebar will bring you to our distributor site.  Evolv and Lifebar are NOT required for the Eat to Live plan.  They aren’t even a designated part of it.  You can do it without these products,  The product links are provided for your reference and as a resource for making your Eat to Live plan more doable if you are a busy person with limited time for shopping and meal prep, like us.    But please don’t let any of that scare you away from trying a program that might be exactly what you’ve been praying for!  We can do this!

    I tried doing this plan before, and got about a week in. I didn’t have the support that I needed then, it was really difficult to follow this while the rest of the family ate the standard American diet. But now my husband is really on board with me doing this (and even wants to follow the plan with me!). We’re in!

    I’m a Dr. Fuhrman fan. I have advice…when you build up an array of healthy meals that taste great, you’ll be grossed out by junk food and the way it makes you feel. Make it easy to eat healthy..start by keeping a veggie tray in at all times. The better choices need to be as easy as the less hayhu ones. I do posts on this kind of thing. Follow my blog!
