I am so excited, the blog is on and the RESET program is taking shape.
There is so much to learn and so much to do, I can’t wait to share our plan with you and see your comments and results.
So what is RESET?
Elana and I are sharing our eating plan in order for me (and whoever would like to join) to lose some excess weight and body fat. We are not gearing after dramatic and unhealthy weight loss, we are trying to stress the importance of wellbeing and get into the habits of healthy eating, healthy cooking and an overall healthy lifestyle.
To be honest I would like to transform my kitchen slowly but surely into a Health Ashram….hahaha , but that is for another time… meanwhile with so many diets and food crazes around ( Atkins, Paleo, South Beach and the latest is the Sirt food diet), we chose to follow the guideline of a Low-GI diet based upon low sugar and low carbs.
So I asked Elana, what is low-GI all about?
Here is her explanation:
“By eating this way, we improve our insulin sensitivity and are able to keep our insulin levels to a minimum. In the short term, this will prevent those awful peaks and dips in our energy levels throughout the day; prevent cravings and the need for an afternoon nap. In the long-term we will be able to control and lose excess weight; prevent or control chronic diseases of lifestyle such as PCOS, Diabetes type 11, hypercholesterolemia and hypertension. This group of symptoms caused by insulin resistance has been named Syndrome X or Metabolic Syndrome as it affects many organs in the body such as adrenal glands, pancreas, heart and kidneys.”
ALL BECAUSE OF WHAT WE CHOOSE TO PUT INTO OUR MOUTHS.
So get yourselves ready for our first weekly meal plan and shopping list coming to our blog tomorrow night, 9th January 2016.
Healthy cooking everyone and Shabbat Shalom!
