I just started the Nutrient Loading program. Is there a guideline I have to follow or do I just eat the foods? 9 out of 10 people experienced fewer cravings
The Nutrient Loading program is designed to promote weight loss without hunger. The best results are achieved by consuming the five Nutrient meals each day and nothing else. However, to assure success, we encourage our customers to make this Program their own. While we do recommend that you try to eat all five Nutrient meals each day, some customers have told us that they sometimes cannot finish all five meals (due to feeling full). Others said that they supplemented Nutrient’s meals with other foods. Adding fruits to the shakes or vegetables to the hot meals are examples of ways customers can personalize the foods to match their preferences. Our website also has a list of recipes that you can choose from to spice up your meals (https://nutrientfoods.com/pages/nutrient-recipes).
Is it okay to add any other foods to a Nutrient meal, such as fresh produce, chicken, spices, etc., while on the Nutrient Loading Program?
Below is a Healthy Meals Guide, showing where to get nutrients when not eating Nutrient foods.
12 Essential Amino Acids (foundation of protein)
- Protein-rich foods: Meats (beef and pork), poultry, seafood, dairy products.
- Plant-based: Soy beans, lentils, chick peas, black beans, fava beans, peas, quinoa.
- Fruits: Each type of fruit generally has only one or two vitamins.
- Portions matter: fruit contains sugar, so balance consumption with sugar intake
- Vegetables: Great source of vitamins and minerals, but one serving generally has only a few of each. Consume a variety: it is estimated that you need 10 different vegetables daily to meet your micronutrients needs.
- With two to three Nutrient meals a day, you’ll get nearly all your vitamins, so you are free to enjoy your vegetables and fruits stress free.
12 Minerals (two – sodium and chloride, we get too much already):
- Nuts: Peanuts, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, hazel nuts, cashews, and Brazil.
- Seeds: Flax, pumpkin, and sunflower.
- Vegetables – see above
- Salad: depending on type of salad, source minerals and vitamins but watch the dressing. Creamy salad dressings are nutrient-poor – full of empty calories.
- 100% whole grains used in breads, pastas, and cereals but not many nutrients.
- Whole fruits (not as juice) and vegetables.
- Omega-3 (healthy fat)
- Fish, particularly salmon.
- Vegetable oils, especially flax seed, canola, and soy oils.
- Omega-6: Don’t focus on; the typical diet already provides too much.
- Omega-9 fat is not essential, as the body produces it and we generally get enough.
Other Nutrients: Health-giving flavonoids and phytonutrients found in plant-based foods: fruits, vegetables, nuts, tea, and spices.
- Water: best beverage; constitutes 65% of our body, Stay hydrated.
- Alcohol: limit intake, full of sugar; Red wine is healthy, as has flavonoids.
- Limit juice consumption; full of sugar and whole fruit is generally healthier.
- Energy drink: full of artificial ingredients, which might do long-term harm.
Can I drink alcohol and coffee while on the Nutrient Loading Program?
Yes, you can drink alcohol and coffee while on the Nutrient Loading program. However, weight loss may be slower if a lot of alcohol is included because it has calories.
