Absolutely not! Flex Foods help you understand your cravings and allow you to respond to your body's needs as never before.
Why do I need Flex Foods?
Because they retrain your hunger response - when we are really hungry, we typically reach for the wrong thing. This is because unhealthy snacks are typically the most advertised and the most convenient. BUT, we also become conditioned to crave those bad "foods" next time we are hungry because we associate that "food" with satisfying our hunger. Reaching for healthy foods at a time of hunger will train you body to crave them instead.
When do I eat Flex Foods?
Eat them when you are craving something. Make a "healthy" flex food choice based upon what you are craving. For example -
When you are craving something creamy & savory, have some avocado mashed with freshly squeezed lemon, cayenne and a generous amount of sea salt. (Avocados also help you burn fat! The sea salt you add helps control your blood pressure and water levels).
When you are craving something crunchy, reach for some organic celery.
If you want something sweet or tart, try some organic berries or an organic apple. (apples and cucumbers also rehydrate and cleanse your bowels).
If you want something salty, sprinkle some Himalayan sea salt on cucumber or watermelon. (watermelon also rehydrates and cleanses the body).
You get the picture, right?
May I have more than 1 Flex Food at a time?
When combining flex foods, be sure to monitor portion size & control. You should still only have 1 cup total.
Am I allowed a Flex Food or Beverage that is NOT on the list?
As long as it is a fruit or veggie of a reasonable portion size, then substituting flex foods should be a fairly simple process. The only exception are bananas or starchy vegetables - as they are not advised.
Please do not add dressings or toppings except Himalayan sea salt, fresh lemon or garlic or cayenne pepper, wild honey or spices such as organic cinnamon. No meat, dairy or bread is allowed either.
