Every BODY is Unique!

Everybody is unique & special and so is every BODY! We all know that this statement is true however, have you ever considered this with regards to how you personally eat? I hadn’t thought much about it either – until recently.  Let me share how some of the ‘light bulbs turned on’, so to speak!

Dave & I have been living in Phase 4 over the last while and we’ve been on the hunt to learn how to keep the weight from coming back on.  We realize that the new weight that we’ve achieved is not really ‘ours’ yet.  Until we have permanently stabilized it (which takes time and continued effort) we must be careful.  Our bodies are at a very vulnerable state and they are prone to weight rebound. This is not the time for us to sit back and relax now that we have lost the weight…but that’s another day’s blog!

So, back to how what we eat affects us.  Not long ago a friend gave us a book about Body Types.  Did you know that your hands, face, and figure tell all about your body functions based on your hormone-endocrine system. By following a few key guidelines and eating specific foods based on your body type you can improve your metabolism, your overall health, and your shape.

Then I came across another book regarding Blood Types.  Did you know that your blood type reflects your internal chemistry.  It actually determines the way you absorb nutrients!  Depending on your blood type certain foods are absorbed better than others and certain foods can actually be harmful to you.

Did you know that your ancestry & heritage also plays a role in what foods are best for you specifically?  How about the way in which your cells convert nutrients into energy?  Is your body a fast oxidizer or slow oxidizer?  Did you know that the speed at which your body processes what you eat is called your metabolic rate and different foods will either aid or hinder you?

So…does this relate to the Spray It Away Weight Loss Program, you ask? You bet it does!  But must you understand it all before you can follow the program?  NO! NO! NO!  Our program works as it is for everyone who follows it.  This has been tried, tested & is true.  Dr. Simeons’ protocol has worked for thousands upon thousands of people & there are plenty of amazing testimonies that you can read on our site and others.

One of the key things that I love about our program is that you begin to learn what personally works for YOUR body and I believe the above information can actually help  fine-tune your overall results to be the very best that they can be.

Phase 1 is only 2 days long & is pretty well a no-brainer for everyone – load up on high-calorie, high fat foods!  Phase 2 is simple & very easy to follow – choose 2 proteins, 2 vegetables, 2 fruit & 2 starches from the list.  Phase 3 is where you really begin to learn what foods affect your body and how they affect it.  I think this is where the above paragraphs will really begin to play a key role in helping you keep the pounds off.

Before this blog goes on forever 🙂 let me give you one example of how we were able to use our new found knowledge.  Perhaps it will be of help to you!

A while back Dave was chatting with a couple of guys about the results of their “steak days” (If you are unsure of what a “steak day” is you can read about it in our knowledge base by clicking here). He wondered why it was that they would lose 2-4 lbs but he would only lose 1 lb.  As he thought through why Dr Simeons would prescribe a “steak day” he knew it was for the high protein, higher fat content.  Using our new-found knowledge he decided to try a “salmon day” instead – wouldn’t you know it – he dropped 3 lbs!  The next time he needed a “steak day” he tried the “salmon day” again and this time he dropped 3.5 lbs!  You see, now that we knew that his Blood Type was “A” we had learned that he should not be eating red meat on a regular basis.  Up until we knew this Dave had been eating red meat almost every single day!  As you can see his body performed much better for him on a “salmon day” than a “steak day”.  He then decided to go for 2 solid weeks without eating any red meat & to his surprise (but just as the books had said) he felt better overall & also noticed that his energy was higher.

Wow! Isn’t that cool!  Aren’t our bodies so individually unique? As it says in the Bible, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” (Psalms 139:19)  That’s for sure!
