I am in the process of switching gears…again. It’s what I do. I seem to be in a constant state of change. I no sooner get whatever stage I am in figured out, only to have to figure out a whole new stage! But hopefully I am moving forward each time and not backward.
To some it may not seem that switching from a vegetarian diet to an omnivorous diet is a step forward, but I do believe that no one diet is perfect for all people. We all have different needs and different health issues, so it is only natural that we would have different dietary needs.
For myself, I have needed to follow a low carb diet, which I did quite successfully as a vegetarian. Except that I still managed to gain weight. I blame that on the carbs in my diet that have been feeding my Candida. Although I was keeping the carbs low enough that I wasn’t having any serious issues, the issues were still there, hiding below the surface. So I came to the conclusion that I needed to go very low carb, even ketogenic. This would enable me to lose those extra pounds, as well as starve off my Candida and cancer. Ketogenic diets are an effective natural remedy for cancer.
Last week I purchased a new enema bucket from Amazon.com which I am so thrilled to have! I had been using an enema bag, which I disliked because I couldn’t really clean the inside. It bothered me a lot thinking about what might be growing in there, yuck! I’ll share in another post soon how I am liver cleansing with coffee enemas (sounds exciting, eh?)
I also stumbled upon Joe Vitale. Have you heard of him? He helps people realize their dreams. He was in a movie titled “The Secret” which describes how to attract money and success in your life. He’s also written several books. It’s very, very interesting! I am a believer that we are what we think we are. Unfortunately, I had been attracting negative energy in my life. I am now making a very conscious effort to turn my dreams into reality.
Of course one of those dreams is attaining the perfect body for me. Part of what is involved in reaching that goal is visualizing how I will reach that goal. I’ve started some posters with magazine clippings that I put up around my home. I have a poster in the kitchen showing the types of foods I will eat. They will be healthy fats, some protein, and low carb vegetables. No longer will I focus on desserts, healthy or not. I really need to minimize desserts in my life. I will allow myself a square of very dark chocolate now and then, or coconut, nut, seed and/or avocado treats, but for the most part, these will not be a staple in my diet any longer.
Part of the reason for this is that I have the tendency to overdue. Likely the carbs in my healthy desserts were making my body scream, “More! More! More!”. Little did I realize that coconut flour is not as low carb as we have been led to believe. It is only slightly lower than regular flour. Of course, you don’t need to use as much of it, but it does explain why I would devour a whole stevia sweetened cake in less than two days all by myself. Carob powder also contains carbs, although relatively low, but not low enough if I am going to follow a ketogenic diet, I will need to cut out my carob desserts as well.
But I’m not going to miss them because my low carb diet with the proper amounts of healthy fats, protein and nutritious low carb veggies is going to satisfy my body. The pounds will begin to melt away. The toxins that are stored in my fat cells will be released and I will continue to cleanse and detox. I will reach the perfect weight for my body, I will feel good, I
will be am happy with my body image and how my clothes fit me.
How’s that for some positive visualization?!

I still have some fruits to use up from last weeks grocery shopping, but once I have them used up, I will only occasionally use berries, which are the lowest carb fruits. I also ordered some keto sticks from Amazon.com so I can keep track of when I reach ketosis and how I will stay there.
Have a great week! This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support!
