How I Lost 50 LBs Age 55 Now I am 64 and still keeping it off with a green smoothie diet for weight

Hi my name is Ray Albert and I want to tell you
about my weight loss Journey so that I can try and motivate people that are over 50 that
thinking that it’s too late for them to lose weight. it all started when I went to the doctor one
day my blood pressure was through the roof I was 60 lb overweight I felt like crap and
I was taking these really expensive blood pressure medications and the doctor told me
I was pre-diabetic and that I needed to do something about my situation I struggled for a little while trying to figure
out what the heck I was going to do I didn’t like being fat I didn’t like being lazy I
didn’t like feeling lethargic but there I was fat lazy and lethargic and headed for
diabetes until one day I was watching Dr.Oz I know
sounds ironic don’t it dr. Oz anyway he had a woman on there that had a book out called
the plan and it was all about being able to make a lifestyle change and still being able
to eat the foods that you love so I went ahead and got the book I read the
book over and over again until one day I finally got the courage up finally get started on
the New Path of my new Journey I’m not going to lie it was rough for the first couple of
days because you had to go on this cleanse which in retrospect I could have made it a
lot easier on myself because in the book The Plan it was mainly about how your body is
allergic to certain foods and even some foods that you thought were good for you your body
could actually be allergic to so the cleanse with to get rid of all the toxins in your
body and then start heading in different types of foods everyday and if you gained any weight
even a quarter of a lb Then you were allergic to that particular food and to keep it out
of your diet for the moment anyway so when I say in retrospect I mean I could
of probably had vegetable smoothies instead and it would have been a lot more pleasant
than doing a cleanse of nothing but soup and bland food for two or three days but while being on this journey I learned
a lot of things about weight loss and about the foods you eat and what really makes you
fat yes your body could be allergic to certain
foods which causes inflammation which causes weight gain it’s a never-ending cycle so if
you are allergic to some foods I suggest that you find out what they are
and not eat them anymore but for the most part you can basically eat what you want and
still lose weight I know that’s a bold statement but I’m doing it I can eat anything I want
to anytime I want to and still lose weight For years you have been hearing about the
importance of maintaining a healthy diet to maintain better health and optimal weight.
Study after study links poor diets that are highly refined and loaded with sugar, preservatives
and saturated fats to nearly every chronic disease.
Yet so many still have not changed their diets or demanded higher quality foods from manufacturers.
Low quality foods creates inflammation in the body which is directly linked to diabetes,
heart disease, arthritis, cancer and numerous other major diseases.
What is inflammation? Inflammation is a naturally occurring immune
response in the body. Your body responds to the presence of injury or foreign invaders
such as a virus or bacteria by sending chemicals and white blood cells to fight them off, helping
your body heal and protect itself from illness. Naturally, this is a good thing that helps
to keep you healthy. So, what happens when there is chronic inflammation?
When the body is out of balance your immune system steps into overdrive, causing chronic
inflammation, weight gain, pain and disease. Chronic inflammation occurs even when the
body’s immune system is activated but is not threatened by a foreign invader. Food
is one of the primary causes of chronic inflammation – AND is the primary remedy.
Foods that Cause Chronic Inflammation: You know already that highly refined and processed
foods are very problematic for your health. Refined sugars and grains lack nutritional
value and contribute to obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, auto-immune diseases
and many other major health problems. Saturated fats are another big contributor to disease.
What you may not be aware of is that there are also foods that are more likely to activate
the immune system and cause inflammation. As your body reacts to these low-level allergens,
you may experience hormonal imbalance, mood swings, joint pain, sinus and respiratory
issues, headaches, digestive issues, fatigue, and weight gain. The symptoms develop slowly
over time and, perhaps with the exception of weight gain, the cause is rarely associated
with food. As a result, you may turn to medication or other medical testing and procedures in
hopes of getting relief, yet if your diet remains unchanged, you will not find lasting
relief. The most common food sensitivities come from:
Dairy products Gluten
Corn Soy
Yeast Fried food
Artificial sweeteners Hormones and anti-biotics
Artificial additives (in almost every packaged food) What Causes Food Related Inflammation?
Everything that you bring into your body impacts it – for better or worse. Refined foods
loaded with chemicals, pesticides and other toxins, medications, excess amounts of sugar,
and other harmful things that you ingest or absorb into your body wreaks havoc on your
digestive system, changing the PH balance, altering the bacterial composition, and damaging
the protective lining in your stomach and intestinal tract.
This is referred to as “leaky gut” (sounds gross, right?)
The lining of your digestive tract is designed to protect your body and immune system from
toxins and allergens in your digestive system. When damaged, food particles get through the
barrier and activate your immune response. Your body begins attacking your food as if
it was a foreign invader. This imbalanced immune response creates chronic inflammation
in the body, leading to weight gain and other major health conditions. Mother Of 2 Reverses Dangerous Inflammation

What Foods Are Anti-inflammatory? Let food be your medicine.You CAN lose excess
weight, reduce chronic pain, and reduce your risk of serious chronic illness ~ and even
possibly reverse chronic illness ~ simply by making positive changes to your diet. Cut
out inflammatory foods and add in more whole, healthy, anti-inflammatory foods that are
nutrient dense, high in omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
Here are some foods to start incorporating into your diet:
Berries (Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) Leafy green vegetables (Spinach, kale, beat
greens) Fatty fish (such as salmon)
Garlic Extra virgin olive oil
Vegetables (Beats, celery, red pepper, tomato, broccoli)
Raw oats Turmeric
Whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, millet) Ginger
Fresh fruits (apples, pineapple) Raw honey
Seeds and nuts Beans and legumes
Adding these and other ANTI-inflammatory foods into your diet reduces oxidative stress, increases
absorption of vital nutrients and triggers a number of reactions and critical body processes.
These create a reduction in inflammation and begin to reverse the damage created by poor
food choices. As you continue to increase these foods in
your diet and reduce or eliminate more harmful foods, you WILL lose weight and have LESS
bloating, pain and swelling. If you have a chronic illness, you are likely to notice
a reduction in symptoms and improved overall health.
Depending on your circumstances, a gradual shift in your diet may reduce the likelihood
of backsliding, however choose based on your personal health needs and the recommendations
of your healthcare professionals and nutritionists. The Good News…
The good news is, although this is a change that some find daunting, you can still eat
a wide variety of delicious foods. Fortunately, there are simple and delicious ways to begin
introducing new, healthy foods into your diet. The #1 Easiest And Fastest Way To Fight (And

ideal meal replacement that provides you with lots of valuable nutrients and helps reduce

So I hope this wasn’t too long of a tutorial because this is how I did it what I just spoke
of is true and as fact if people change the way they eat and not eat out so much at McDonald’s
or Burger King or any other restaurant for that matter because all restaurants have pre-made
food that are full of salt and everything else but you can eat a healthy diet and still
be able to go out and eat once in awhile and still be healthy if you think I’m providing
