I should be clear that the sugar burner and fat burner inner biochemistry imbalances are not the same as you would traditionally think of in a weight loss program. These are specific imbalances and do not refer to ability to burn fat. I did the simple point and click test about a week ago and got my results back a few days later showing that I am indeed currently a Sugar Burner. Here’s how I’ve changed my diet in the past few days based on the guidance of :Kristine, my Ultra Homeopathic Physician.
First of all, a caveat
These are my words and my explanation. I’ve already found out that when I post something in regards to this, :Kristine gives me shit and quickly corrects me. It’s great, I love it. I write what I think I know, and then find out exactly what I don’t know, fix it and learn a great deal in the process. So, you will probably see some comments below where she’s gently guided me (ie: smacked me) to change my words, lol.
From what I understand, the labels Sugar Burner and Fat Burner are not metabolic type’s, they’re imbalances in your inner biochemistry. It’s an imbalance that needs to be corrected. Once corrected, your body will work more efficiently and the guidelines can be changed again. So, the program of food outlined for my current imbalance (yes, current imbalance – because once corrected, I can change my foods again) is temporary, for me. I’ve already booked a Gold test for hands on inner biochemistry work and exact supplementation advice. That’s later on in the month.
A few of us from this blog and community have already done the point and click tests. Jessie has done it, Darlene had to wait 72 hours because she had taken a Tylenol, Michele has done it and many more are getting on board.
The reason for the test is simple.
You won’t know which program to follow unless you know if you’re s sugar burner or a fat burner. Once you know, you eat for your type, get balanced and get results.
See, you could be eating the foods you think you should be eating based on what you know about health, nutrition or the latest well marketed weight loss program. You may even be eating foods that don’t appeal to you because you’ve been told they’re healthy.
However, those foods might be based on the authors inner biochemistry, and not yours.
There are a lot of weight loss programs and people get results for sure, but if you want to get results for sure, without guesswork, and get it right the first time with less effort, then take the test.
There, that said, I can move on to how I’m implementing my Sugar Burner program from :Kristine.
Here’s how I changed my diet
I’ve added in a daily double shot of Wheat Grass juice from a local Booster Juice. As far as I’m concerned Booster Juice products are crap, but the fresh juiced Wheat Grass is fine. I’m doing this until my Sunrider Evergreen and Sunrider Spirulina arrive. I had run out a few months ago and in my opinion, are much better products than any other on the planet for a source of greens, easily assimilated by the body.
I had recently begun to enjoy Kale and Swiss Chard as you have read in some of Darlene’s whole food recipes that come out on Saturdays.
Sugar Burners Are To Eat These Vegetables
… in moderation
- Swiss Chard
- Salad Greens
- Green Beans
- Winter Squash
I never really knew what a winter squash was, but Darlene explained it to me and it’s quite simple. Winter squash are the ones with hard shells. Zucchini for example has a soft shell or skin, so NOT a winter squash. Spaghetti squash has a hard shell – Winter squash. Get it? Cool, me too now!
So, it’s not to say I can’t have Kale, but in limited quantities, emphasizing the last list items. I already love avocado, Olives, Cauliflower and Winter Squash (ie: the hard ones like Spaghetti Squash), so eating them is not an issue. I’ll be steaming and creating curries out of Carrots, Asparagus and Cauliflower with a daily dose of spaghetti squash as well. Be sure to subscribe and you’ll see the recipes that Darlene and I come up with for Sugar Burners.
I will be stopping my mixed green salads that I’ve had with each meal and instead having either a spinach salad with mushrooms or steamed spinach. Hmmm, Darlene? A spinach soup of some sort?
Veggies To Minimize For Sugar Burners
Here’s the list of Veggies to minimize or avoid (avoid is my word, not :Kristine’s) for Sugar Burners
- Brussel Sprouts
- Egg Plant
- Mustard Greens
- Soft Squash
How I’ve Changed The Meats In My Diet
You know I’ve used Tom Venuto’s Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle program and gotten great results. As low as 8% body fat was my best after 6 weeks on the program. Well, life gets in the way of things as well as my own emotional state and I gained some weight back (more on that soon). I emphasized lean white chicken breast as my main protein source for years now.
White Chicken Breast Is Out
Dark meats are in.
I’m now emphasizing Steak, Chicken Thighs (the dark meat) and liver. I’m sticking with my egg allotment each day. My morning omelette has always been 6 egg whites and 2 whole eggs. That will continue.. with spinach and mushrooms now too. I’ve been bar-b-que’ing a LOT lately and even bar-b-que’d liver a couple of times. I’ve connected with friends to get some locally raised Bison meat in bulk in accordance with my philosophy of eating foods grown within 100 miles of where I live. This supports local farmers and allows me fresh produce. I will be adding in a lot more bison meat to my diet as well.
As for cooking times of the meat, that is changing as well. I used to eat my meal well cooked. Very well cooked. Traditionally, I’ve asked for my steaks “well done” or “Medium well”, but for Sugar burners, the guidelines are no blackened meat. Steaks should still be pink inside so now it’s “rare” for me. Interesting, I’ll see how that goes.
Wheat is out… way out… so far out I barely know how to spell it. Wheat is very bad for Sugar burners. I’ve know this in my own experiments. If I have wheat, I wake up with puffy eyes, scratchy skin and itchy everywhere. It’s like flipping the itchy, scratchy, puffy switch.
All other grains are ok, Amaranth, Corn, Kamut, Millet, Oats, Quinoa, Brown Rice, Rye, Spelt. I’m a big believer in oats an oatmeal. All the others I eat as well and have for years. :Kristine is advising me that I can limit my starchy carbohydrates right down to zero if I want and then re-load every 7 days, the last two meals of the day which is what I’ve been doing, so that’s perfect. Remember, it was she who referred me to Rob Faigin’s Natural Hormone Enhancement book in the first place.
Fruits to emphasize – once a day max and only Tart apples, firm pears and bananas with firm green tips only. I only eat apples and blue berries anyway, so not much of a change.
Fruits in moderation – twice a week max, apricots, blueberries, other berries and plums.
Fruits to minimize – citrus, grapes and sweet fruits.
Avoid all food juices and vinegar.
Oils – Real butter, coconut, flax, olive and sesame – just what I’ve already been consuming except for the butter part.
Nuts and Seeds – I’m a big believer in nuts and seeds being good for me. During the west coast trail hike I did, I ate hand fulls of nuts and seeds every day. Handfulls, and then had to re-stock at Chez Monique’s little bistro as well because I was eating so much. I dropped 2% body fat that week even with all that fat. All seeds and nuts are good. I eat Almond, cashew and filberts mostly and now walnuts and pine nuts too. I love nut butters and snack on tablespoons of almond butter every day and even as a snack before bed – a great big tablespoon of almond butter. Mmmmmmmmm.
All processed foods are out. I don’t eat processed foods anyway. Processed foods are advertised by McDonalds, Dairy Queen, Burger King and the others as though it was a good thing “two all beef patties, processed cheese, blah blah, on a sesame seed bun”. Geesh, processed foods kill people! Wake up.
I love salt. I had a little bit of fresh ground celtic sea salt on my omelette a few years back when visiting friends in Vancouver and fell in love anew with my omelette. It was wonderful. I’ve never been without it since.
The Sugar Burner Inner Biochemistry imbalance recommends Sea Salt, Celtic Salt or Real Salt Brand salt, unbleached only. I use Celtic Salt, but had Real Salt brand salt at :Kristine’s a few weekends ago and it tasted just fine.
Oh, and the newest change, one that is kinda throwing me off, or for a loop is the requirement to drink 2 glasses of distilled water only upon rising. I’m not sure if this was just for me, or for all Sugar Burners, but I had left distilled water behind a few years ago.
There is more to it than just this list I’ve given here that I’m changing or modifying. I have not got into the supplements, calcium, Vitamins etc as I don’t want to overwhelm you any more than I already have. This is a partial list and is just a way to bring you the reader into my diet and show you how I’m eating and how I’m using the information I gained from taking these simple point and click tests.
I’ve been using the cellular patches for awhile now, specifically the energy patches and the Anti Aging patches , and just today got my Cravings Patches so that I could try them out and give a review. The cravings patches are called SP6 and eliminate cravings for sugar and other carbohydrate type foods. These Cellular Patches have only a positive impact on my inner biochemistry and work independent of my eating program. They work independently, and improve the results as far as I’m concerned, so I will continue to use them as I change my eating program.
I’m willing to do this because this is an imbalance I’m currently experiencing and the guidelines are here to bring me back to balance, improve my health and get me results in minimum time with less effort than me guessing what’s good for me.
Remember The Whole Health Thing?
That’s what it’s all about folks. Your health. This is not a weight loss program, but that will be the side effect of being healthy and treating the body with respect. I’m a body builder. I want to gain mass and get lean. I love how training makes me feel and look and I eat a LOT of food. Having a good night sleep is important as well, and so is a positive mental outlook on life. I love my skin, treat it well and know that others strive to have skin as clear and clean as mine, I’ve been told this by many friends and people I meet. All these things are the product of a body being nourished from the inside. Perfect sleep, good mood, no stress, effortless living, lean body mass, clean breath – you name it, all the reasons to be eating for your specific type.
This is easy people.
A few years ago my Gold test told me that I was a fat burner and I was eating for that specific imbalance. Today I’m a Sugar Burner and will be changing my diet to reflect the eating habits I will need to become balanced again. I have booked a session and will be doing the Gold Test personally at :Kristine’s office with ongoing work every month, or every other month. My ultimate goal is 8% body fat at 240 pounds by August 8, 2008 and the ability to drink a good wine every few weeks, lol. Everything that :Kristine has outlined for the Sugar Burner is what I had begun to do based on Rob Faigin’s Natural Hormone Enhancement program with a few personal tweaks based on my inner biochemistry. I’ll be reporting in about how this is going, as will Darlene, Jessie and Michele over the next weeks and months.
