Simple Ways of Finding the Right Diet http://learntruehealth.com/finding-the-right-diet/ People nowadays are getting more health-conscious. Food just used to be a source of survival, but it is now a primary way to help our body reach optimal health. But with so many diets around, what is the best technique in finding the right diet?
My guest today, KJ Landis is not a stranger to dieting. Like me, Landis struggled so many years finding the right diet. But despite Landis' active lifestyle, the weight just couldn't stay off. It was frustrating!
To those who have not heard of her, KJ Landis is a fantastic author and health expert. On this episode, Landis shares valuable tips on finding the right diet and how to maintain your ideal weight. Her weight loss journey is truly inspiring.
Recovering From Pain Landis revealed that used to be obese as a child. The sadness she felt seemed endless and overwhelming because apparently, she was molested by relatives from age 7 to 12.
When she turned 12 years old and celebrated her bar mitzvah, Landis finally took hold of her life. With her newfound courage, she finally faced her perpetrators. When Landis refused the abuse, only then was she able to shed her pain.
Battle Of The Bulge Life seemed to pass by in a blur. Years later, Landis landed a job working at the Hilton in San Francisco where she stayed for 15 years.
As years went by, Landis gradually packed on the pounds. By the time she was 46 years old, she has gained a total of 50 lbs. Hence, Landis decided to undergo liposuction.
Landis was all set after paying a down payment for her liposuction. However, her husband insisted the procedure is pointless. He believed Landis would gain all the weight back if she didn't focus on finding the right diet instead.
"I looked into other options, and HCG intrigued me," Landis shared. "After seven weeks of daily research, I decided to go on an HCG diet."
HCG Diet Landis began the HCG diet in January 2012. She followed HCG Body For Life protocol with Colin F. Watson. Then in 60 days, Landis lost 50 pounds. Now that's amazing!
First of all, HCG is a hormone that is naturally found in every human. And Landis says that for one to use HCG, you have to use an injection aside from getting a prescription.
The next important thing to remember when you're on an HCG diet is to drink water. In fact, Landis drank a gallon of water everyday. Consequently, when you increase water in your diet slowly, Landis says you can identify if you're hungry or merely emotionally and socially hungry.
"The HCG is not meant to be a yo-yo diet. It's intended to be a permanent lifestyle change. All diets are eating lifestyles," explains Landis. So if I want my eating lifestyle to be a permanent change, it's to re-educate how we are supposed to eat."
Eating The Right Kind Of Food However, Landis didn't stop there. Losing so much weight motivated her to research how to keep the weight off. Making an effort to stay gluten-free and dairy-free is not easy.
Even eating whole foods can be a challenge.
But all successful endeavors take some amount of effort before it can be achieved. Apparently, the secret lies in being able to identify every ingredient in the food that you eat.
Consequently, the hard work paid off. When Landis succeeded in proving the benefits of choosing the right kind of food to eat, people started asking advice. That's when Landis decided to create her protocol.
Basic Rules of Eating Healthy "Re-educate yourself on how humans are supposed to eat in the ancient ways," said Landis.

• Slowly increase calories and fat.
• Eat healthy protein.
