I don’t ordinarily blog about topics like weight loss or food to eat, but I thought that there is such a huge quantity of misinformation out there by people trying to sell you their crappy supplement or weird meal that I would publish some good information on the healthiest meal you can eat to lose weight fast.
I have done extensive research about the best foods for your brain and the best foods to eat for a healthy heart and lifestyle and here is what I have found the top foods are:
Vegetables (raw ginger root, raw garlic, red cabbage, spinach, broccoli, kale, red bell peppers, sweet potatoes, onions)
Fruits (blueberries, blackberries, sweet cherries, red delicious apples w/ skin, avacado)
Nuts (pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts)
Fish (salmon, trout, herring, sardines)
Benefits of eating these foods as a healthy meal to lose weight:
You can eat a LOT of them, get full and you actually have not consumed many calories
Each of these foods listed above is a “super food” with massive nutritional benefits
Reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer enormously
Feel great all day long with no drop in energy
Fairly obvious stuff right? You’ve heard all of this before, but who wants to eat that stuff or try to prepare it?
For two years now I have owned a blender (first a cheap $50 one from Costco and now the $400 Blendtec) and have used these blenders to prepare about half of all the calories that I consume.
Using the blender to mix the foods above (except fish of course) is in my opinion the best way to consume them. You can make tasty drinks that require very little effort or thought. When you first start blending, you will probably eat TONS of fruits (cuz of the sweet flavor), but eventually you should transition to eating more vegetables. Here are a couple of my blender drink recipes:
My friend Scott is a hotel concierge at the Thompson. As a hotel concierge he gets invited to restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cruises, plays, shows, surfing lessons and parasailing lessons all for free by entertainment business owners who want him to refer customers to them. Tonight he and I went on a comped cruise in Marina Del Rey… and he won a $100 visa card!
A couple of weeks ago I visited my Seattle office and worked up there. I also had three fun events: the birth of my first niece, my ten year high school reunion, and a rafting trip with Justin White, Shawn and Melissa Sturzen. Great fun!
