What is the Crossover Diet?
The Crossover Diet is almost like it sounds, crossing over to a healthier diet from where you are now. It is the median between a diet of foods that are detrimental to your health and a diet of foods that will nourish your body and promote good health. The Crossover Diet is a conduit between a healthy and an unhealthy diet. It is a diet that cushions the transition from a lifelong habit of eating foods high in fat, salt and sugar to a diet of eating foods low in fat, salt and sugar.
Getting started on the “Crossover Diet” is not as difficult as you may think. Before you start, it is recommended you take the herbs Cravevex or Craveless to reduce your craving for sugar and salt.
STEP #1 - Eliminate when possible or greatly reduce the five whites from your diet – white flour, white sugar, white salt, white rice and white potatoes.
STEP #2 - If you eat meat, reduce your intake to 3-6 oz. a day. Select one or two days a week that you don’t eat any meat at all. There are many good meat-free ideas in the Meatless section of the Healthy Meals Cookbook.
STEP #3 - When possible, buy organic fruits and vegetables because they are grown without harmful chemicals and pesticides. Add some raw fruits and vegetables to your diet every day.
STEP #4 - Make a grocery list of herbs and spices and alternative products you need to start your Crossover Diet. (See Tips for Healthy Cooking) Make a meal plan for the week (see the bonus menu section of the Healthy Meals Cookbook) so you can purchase the items necessary to prepare the meals you have selected. Do not eat after a set time (a time you have set yourself) in the evening. It should be a few hours before you go to bed.
STEP #5 - Most nutritionists stress the importance of drinking plenty of water. It is suggested that you should drink at least 8 to16 ounces of water before breakfast – bottled or purified – not tap water. You can also replace many of your beverages with water.
