Diets that restrict the basics of fruits and vegetables should frighten you. These are the building blocks of your body. When you deny your body the ability to refuel, it will find any resources stored in your body to utilize. That can mean pulling from muscle and tissue to fulfill your needs to operated smoothly.
The earth was meant to provide food for the body. Look to food in its whole and natural condition for your best resources. Vegetables, fruits, fish and animal protein in their cleanest state cannot be improved by adding poisons, antibiotics, by processing or boxing. Try an earth diet.
Note to those poisoned or metals toxic: If you have an excess of metals stored in your body you might have found it hard to lose weight or you might have seen unusual gain. Yes, you've probably slowed down and so are burning fewer calories, but another thing that happens with metals toxicity is that your body will actually create fat cells to store toxicity if the burden becomes too high. It won't drop them until it is safe, so you are kind of stuck with those extra pounds for a time.
Most of us who have randomly gained from metals, have tried over and over to lose the pounds. When it doesn't happen we get desperate and try almost anything. In the end, we have to remember that keeping the body alert and healthy is key. The pounds are not always the priority.
