The Red Color Diet is just a 45-54 or 63 day jump start for those of us needing to lose a large amount of weight. I believe that once you have completed adjusting the color and balancing your body you still have to find out what works for your individual body and lifestyle. This is especially true if you are an emotional eater like me.
I have a lot of people following me now- but no one ever comments and so I sit in wonder if any of you are following the Red Color Diet and what your feelings are around where do I go now that you've finished.
I advise you to take stock at the end and decide how the no sugar- no white flour has made you feel. perhaps you'd like to go forward working out what you can add back in that doesn't send you off balance. I found that I can take about 4 grams of sugar a day ( like in a health-natural cereal- but I can no longer drink even half water-half juice. I get a headache when I do. I also know from experience I can't eat chocolate( even dark) because once I start, I can't stop-it's a trigger food for me. Now that you're off sugar- just give it a shot- same with other foods. Learn to listen to your body. Also learn to listen to when you are full.
It feels so great to be in control of what I eat- when I exercise and how I deal with emotions and life without overeating. I wonder how many pounds I put on eating "junk" food when I 1st moved away from home just because I wanted to be in control. That was my ego- with no thought for what my body needed. I think a lot of us have dealt with "ill" people we allowed to "control" our lives and choose " controlling" what we eat-by eating that which we believe the "ill" controller would not approve of. At least I've learned I did.
Now I am so happy and relieved to choose for myself that which I enjoy eating and yet know that it is also a life affirming healthy choice for me. Food that puts a smile on my face. I never eat anything just because its "good for me" if I don't like it.I also never eat anything that makes my body feel sick, bloaty, headachey ( in other words-sugar & starchy carbs) Feeling in control is very important. When my family looks at that cornbread ( that I made a healthy way) with frowns on their faces-it no longer hits my button. I just smile-knowing The healthy me is in control.
