Alkaline, Ketogenic, Ayurvedic… Weight -loss +

Hello!

Today I would like to talk a bit more about our diet. The AKA Diet started as a family project, to help the love of my life with the foods (Alkaline and Ketogenic) that his MD had prescribed, I had read a book on Ayurvedic eating and spices, so we decided to mix them all.

One of the main flaws of most Ketgenic diets is they have a lot of processed and packaged foods, little veggies and little fruit. Ours is different, as we focus on whole foods, and pack up on veggies and fruit. Our program is no bacon diet.

We focus on Alkalizing foods, but  we do allow and promote protein from whole diary  products and lean meats. We allow coffee in moderation, but we recommend you stay away or eat modeartely grains, cereals and beans.

The Ayurvedic factor is perhaps our own cherry on the pie along with how to combine foods for better digestion. The Ayurvedic factor is not based on body type more than on food type and the use of spices. Spices have healing properties, they will make yuour food taste great and they boost your meatabolism helping you melt fat. And, no, they will typically not give you heartburn, not under our program.

Heartburn is not caused by what you eat but by whatever is eating you. Which is where our coaching comes in handy, so you heal from within. And heal those emtions which keep you ingesting toxins of any kind, and whch eep you binging.

We are launching soon!

Happy soaring!

AKA Menus 101

The following menus were designed from Alkaline, Ketonic, Ayurvedic principles. More recipes and a full explanation on how this diet works will be detailed in further publications.

Metabol-boost Guiding lights:

  1. Eliminate the consumption of the following: sugar (white and brown), excess salt, processed, packaged and canned foods and juices – except for tuna, salmon (both in water), ginger leaves and prosciutto. Anything white, If it’s white, it’s processed except for coconut meat, guanabana and snow.
  2. Avoid or reduce to the minimum the intake of: red meat, pork, and starchy carbs like potatoes and corn; flour, yeast and all types of bread.
  3. Prefer room temp, warm or chilled to cold ones. Drink plenty of plain water or ginger and lime water. Add stevia and/or a spice to your drinks to make your metabolism a bit faster.
  4. Avoid Dairy Products. – greek yogurt and yogurt can be an exception along with white cheeses such as: fresh, mozzarella, feta and goat cheese – in small portions all.
  5. Wait for 5 minutes after every meal and then walk for 10 or 20, so long as it’s not too sunny. After every meal.

Rules for building meals:

  1. Every meal should contain: one portion of protein, one portion of fiber and one (small) of complex carbs eg fruits or whole grains.
  2. Allowed dairy products, eggs and cereals should not be consumed more than 3x per week (that is on 3 different meals).
  3. Spice them up! Use oil moderately.
  4. Dessert should be a piece of dark chocolate (2 squares of a small bar of Hershey’s Dark, 3 hershey’s kisses – plain the silver wrapping ones; or a fruit.
  5. Calories will be used conservatively.

Example menu:

Breakfast:

Baked oatmeal with flaxseeds and raisins/dried dates/dried figs. Or

One  green smoothie – hold here, it doesn’t have to have veggies! Eg oatmeal, sunflower seeds, 1/2 apple, 1/4. If you prefer a green smoothie, try 1 cup of leafy greens, one slice of pineapple, 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup of shredded coconut meat, and coconut or plain water.

One green omelet – 2 eggs and one white, or viceversa – add veggies either leafy greens or mushroom and bell peppers, with chives or onion. If you’re not patient for the omelet, scrambled work too

Two poached eggs on a bed of spinach (raw and disinfected if possible) or margherita – on top of a tomato slice with mozarella

Lunch/ dinner:

Turkey fajitas and green salad.

Smoked/Grilled/sealed chicken breast, turkey breast, salmon or tuna fillet; steamed veggies or raw salad- for steamed or grilled veggies think teriyaki, use sesame oil instead of soy sauce to make it Keto/ Alkaline.

Savage rice – baked whole rice (brown rice) with a hint of sesame oil, shredded coconut, raisins, sunflower seeds and nuts, add a green salad as a side. Add ginger. turmeric, cumin and cilantro when cooking to make it taste like kidchi minus the lentils.

Lentil free kidchi recipie: in a pan add 3 sprays of coconut oil/sesame, avocado or hemp seed – add onion or chives – 2 tbsp of chives or of diced onions, ½ pack of tomato sauce, 1tsp of each spice sautee in pan. Then add rice and water. Let rice cook and sit – if you want a drier version, try with the 2 ¼ cups of water per cup of rice. Savage rice takes longer to cook, so I prefer brown, whole rice.

Veggie pasta and meat – shred zucchini, carrots and a very small portion of beets (just to add color and iron), place on skillet or pan with tomato sauce and ground meat (prefer one that’s not red, or use your red meat day). And one box of 8oz tomato sauce – or equivalent. Spice it up! Cilantro, and garlic will work great on this. Add tofu on top or white cheese when warm, let it grate.

Dinner should be similar to lunch but in a smaller portion. Try to make lunch your largest meal of the day!

Avoid snacking! If cravings attack, drink a large glass of either plain or ginger-lemon water FIRST. If invincible have one of the following: an apple, a whole hand of nuts (almonds are best).

Drink tons of water –  as per current weight that should be 2.5 lts be mindful that drinking tea and spiced water – but ginger and lime might result in dehydration. Try to at least break even in water vs tea and coffee.

All diets start on Monday. It’s easier to keep track that way. Be creative and have fun! It might be a good idea that you record any changes you see in your energy, sleep patterns and such, I saw a major improvement in 3 days, typical results vary and weight-loss will happen not until after three weeks.

I’ll walk hand-in-hand!

Happy Trimming!
