One of the main contributing points of the Light&Flow diet is the process of elimination of foods that can potentially be triggers or contribute to toxic load in the body.
These are foods that can cause inflammation, bloating, fatigue, flatulence, headaches, mucus build up that if consumed constantly can start to lead to health challenges such as obesity.
You don’t know what those triggers are until you eliminate them so you are able to notice how different you feel without them. As you remove them your digestive and your immune systems start to improve fast.
Deeply knowing from experience what no to eat is the main outcome or result of being on the Light&Flow diet. The reason why this is so important is that is a sustainable practice.
Patience, focus and determination are required to build those new habits slowly and eat mostly what you find makes you feel good.
I see it all the time in my clinic: the patients who eliminate their food toxic load start to look and feel much better, their digestive systems start to improve and heal and they no longer get sick as they were before. A body that is inflamed and with toxicity is the perfect environment for unwanted organisms to thrive and this type of terrain forms the basis for most diseases.
During the Light&Flow you have an opportunity to remove those foods and to observe the difference it makes to quality of life to have a clean diet. You also have the chance to reintroduce food groups slowly and test those foods for any type of irritation. You then have the awareness of what these are and can choose to eat the ones that make you feel your best.
The idea at the end is knowing what foods make you feel good and which are making you sick, to choose whole foods – unprocessed, fresh and in season: fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, legumes, seeds, some whole grains preferably organic.
Discovering your own best foods is important as everyone is different. You need to have the curiosity and willingness to test them for yourself and at the end, once you’ve reached your goal, not needing to be in any particular “diet” but instead being equipped with the knowledge of what is good for you.
Great health is a journey which is filled with amazing positive opportunities for change, personal growth and learning.
