Q.        I have lost and gained at least 100 pounds in the past two years.  I am sick and tired of these weight yo-yo’s.  How can I lose weight and stay off?

A.        Weight yo-yo (weight cycling) is very common when people seek a “quick fix” for their weight problems.  You need to make a commitment to a healthier lifestyle if you want long-lasting results.  I personally lost 50 pounds and have been staying fit for the past three decades (even after two pregnancies).  The commonly used excuses such as carrying baby fat after pregnancies and slowdown of the metabolism with age, etc. would not affect you if you follow the following recommendations:

1.  Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

Remember, I don’t call this a “yeast-free diet”, because “diet” would denote a temporary fix.  I call it a nutritional program because this is for life.  In this nutritional program, you choose food that nourishes your body and starves your “little enemies”: yeasts and parasites.   The yeast-free nutritional program consists of no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  I know this is a tall order for most Americans, because the Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with theses no-no’s and causes both childhood and adult obesity.  Do the best you can – You will get benefits proportional to your effort.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

2.  Herbal Therapy:

A yeast-free nutritional program prevents new toxins from entering your body.  If your body already has toxin and fat build up, you need to consider herbal formulas that can remove toxins and burn the existing fat.  To help my clients lose weight effectively, I usually recommend our Herbal Detox(Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) together with the Weight Management (Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regular, and Fitness Plus) program.  In order for your body to boost your metabolism, it’s essential that you have the toxins removed.

3.  Proper Hydration:

Dehydration can cause your entire body system to break down, including metabolic function.  Drink eight to 10 glasses of liquid (about eight oz. each glass) per day.  Your body needs this amount of liquid to ensure good blood circulation and smooth transportation of nutrients to your body cells.  If you are on our Herbal Detoxand Weight Management programs, you will have 6 cups of Cleansing-Balance Teaper day, plus one to two glasses of an Herbal Cocktailsmoothie, plus one cup of soup if you follow my yeast-free cookbook.  You are also welcome to drink one to two glasses of water in addition to the above.  Thus, your body will be properly hydrated if you are on our recommended programs.  When your body is properly hydrated, you don’t feel hungry as easily.  The food you ingest would be better digested and the nutrients will be properly absorbed.

4.  Daily Exercise:

Exercise improves your blood circulation and increases the absorption of our herbal formulas.  Exercise also generate endorphins (the morphine within) which can reduce or prevent the aches and pains in your body.  It also gives you a feeling of being calm and high.  According to some of my clients, it’s better than marijuana!

Some people use excuses such as no money for gym membership, no gym nearby, not liking the people in the gym, etc.  Here is my suggestion: you don’t need to go to the gym to exercise.  You can do slow walking around the block in your neighborhood, or walk in a mall if you are concerned about your safety, or simply jog in place at home.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

5.  Cleansing Mental Toxins:

Weight is often used as a subconscious protection shield.  Most of my clients with overweight conditions had been abused physically, sexually, and/or mentally.  Until the negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, regret, guilt, etc are cleared up with spiritual/psychological counseling, the weight yo-yo’s can continue on a subconscious level.  I highly recommend spiritual counseling here because I help my clients find meaning in the suffering.  Traditional psychotherapy can take a long time and still not achieve the same result.  Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healingfor more details.

Maintaining your ideal weight is a life-long journey in staying physically and mentally fit.  No fad diet can accomplish this.  You must make a total commitment to a healthy lifestyle!  Our herbal programs will make it much easier to achieve this lifestyle.
