Permanent Weight Loss
Welcome to my Permanent Weight Loss page where I share resources that helped me lose 75 pounds for good since 2000.
Can we achieve permanent weight loss without expensive pre-packaged meals or pills ? The photo on the left is me in 2000 when I was in Minneapolis at a world convention. There was 75 pounds more of me then than now.
This morning I was motivated to write a sample menu of what I eat on a typical day. This diet consists of no animal products. Animal products are loaded with fat your body does not need. You can replace things like butter, eggs, and milk with healthier alternatives. Instead of margarine or other cooking oils, I use water. If you must use an oil for a recipe, use coconut or olive oil. These are plant based oils and your healthiest solution for baking and cooking. See below for a healthy butter alternative.
Did you know you can give your body more than enough protein every day without having to eat any animal products? I get my protein from seeds, soy, vegetables and beans.
Beans are high in fiber and also are loaded with protein. Brown rice and beans is an excellent combination to give you a complete protein.
I promise if you follow this plan, you will gain energy and drop some weight provided you incorporate some exercise into your daily life. Drinking soft drinks is not conducive to good health. These beverages are loaded with sugar and are very acidic. Water is the best thing for your body especially when you want to improve your health.
Our body is in need of water first thing in the morning. Many nutritionists advise that you drink water 30 minutes or more before eating a meal and then do not drink during your meal so digestive juices can work more efficiently. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so DO NOT skip breakfast!
I have many delicious recipes on my blog that will help you on your journey!
These meals are designed on the eat like a King at breakfast logic, eat like a Queen at lunch, and eat like a pauper at dinner. Your body needs the larger meals in the morning to have enough fuel for the day. By eating less at the evening meal, you will be able to rest on a stomach that has finished digesting all of your food. I eat my evening meal at 5:00 pm so as to be fully digested by bedtime at 9:00 pm. Your body can rest better by following this plan.
DO NOT EAT SNACKS IN BETWEEN MEALS.
You will no longer be hungry in between meals because your body will be getting plenty of nutrition with the following recipes. You will start to feel better as hydration will remove toxins from your system. Animal products are high in fat and cause acid build up in your cells.
As you feel better, the weight will begin to come off and your motivation and self esteem will begin to improve and you are at that point headed for your own success story! Let me know if I can be of assistance as I have been very passionate about healthy living since I achieved permanent weight loss of 70 pounds myself in 2000.
I start the morning with about 20 ounces of alkalized water right after prayer. I spend about 30 minutes in Bible Study and meditation before eating breakfast. Reading devotional books and the meditation will nourish your soul.
Two ounces of VelociTea about 15 minutes before eating to curb appetite.
A Tropical Fruit Smoothie with Caldera Greens
Subscribe to my You Tube Channel for videos on how I make the smoothie and some quick exercises to start the day.
Started using these organic greens that are grown on volcanic soil in Utah back in 2010 and I have not found it necessary to use any caffeine since. There is so much life force energy in the greens that you will never need any caffeine again.
One-half cup of oatmeal (quick, rolled, or steel-cut oats) and add some blueberries from freezer and stir. Do not add any sugar or butter. Oatmeal contains soluble fiber which helps reduce cholesterol and helps keep blood sugar levels balanced. Oatmeal is the best food for a diabetic to eat in the morning. Oatmeal will also fill you up and prevent the need for snacks in between meals. You may want to add a teaspoon of cinnamon to your oats and a dash of honey.

Once again, I make sure I have a large glass of water about 30 minutes before lunch. I have a nice variety of meals each day for my big main meal. I enjoy have an organic vegetable smoothie with a variety of raw vegetables each day at dinner. Here are some ideas:
Bowl of 13 bean soup
Whole Wheat pasta with homemade pasta sauce and add the saute vegetables below and mix together. Limit the pasta that you eat to once a week.
Saute or steam raw vegetables just long enough to soften them. Here are some favorites that I use: broccoli, green or red peppers, garlic cloves, cauliflower, mushrooms, carrots, celery and onions.
Fish cakes are made from a combination of nuts, oats, spices, and vegetables processed in a food processor. Add a little bit of kelp spice and this mixture tastes just like fish and you do not worry about fish that may have come from polluted waters.
Mama’s Meatloaf is a mixture of a different combination of nuts, oats, spices, and vegetables processed in a food processor. You create a meatloaf looking substance and bake for one hour in a pyrex dish. You can add a little ketchup across top of mixture to make it look exactly like meatloaf. Read the label before you buy the ketchup. There are healthy ketchup products available in health food stores.
Tofu Walnut Patties is another meat like substitute that is made from oatmeal, nuts, and tofu. You can create a nice sweet and sour sauce to pour over by mixing a little honey, corn starch, water and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos.
It is recommended to drink your last glass of water for the day about 30 minutes before eating your evening meal. This will keep you from having to get up and go to the bathroom more than once in the night.

Eat a salad everyday. This will help your body get more fiber.
Salad with raw vegetables. Nature has provided some really nice colors in the produce section of the grocery store. Here are some favorites: asparagus, green or red cabbage, bok choy, eggplant, carrots, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, greens, onions and chard.
I mentioned Caldera Greens several times in my videos on this page. Find out more about the Organic Greens on my page here:
Saute a combination of the above vegetables and eat over a bed of wild or brown rice. Fruit salad-use whatever is in season. This time of year is great for fresh grapes from Chile. Melons are great in summer.
One day after work, I set a goal to lose the extra 70 pounds I had gained in the 1990’s and was frustrated with my body in 2000. I started eating the foods mentioned in this webpage and started walking everyday. In just 6 months, all of the excess weight came off & I have kept it off since 2000.
I drink 12 ounces of VelociTea after eating every evening and it keeps me very regular as far as bowel movements the next day.
You can get a free week of VelociTea by going to my website below:
3/4 cup coconut milk *
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt *
May use 1/4 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut or raw cashew nuts instead of coconut milk, and increase water to 1 and 1/4 cups.
If you have only sweetened coconut, the sugar can be rinsed out with hot water, using a sieve.
1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes. It should begin to thicken, about the consistency of thin porridge. I’ve learned that this can vary with the cornmeal used, so if it isn’t getting thick, add another teaspoon of cornmeal and cook a few more minutes until it is like thin pancake batter or porridge.
2. Place in blender, cover, can turn on low, then increase to high. Blend for about 1 minute until as smooth as possible. (If using shredded coconut or cashews nuts, blend for 2 minutes.)
3. Pour into a container; cover and chill. It will be runny, but sets up when cold. This will keep for about 10 days in the refrigerator, but after a few days it gets stiffer. If this happens, just add a bit of water and stir briskly until soft. I like to make a new batch every week. If there is any of the old still remaining, I stir it into a frozen vegetable dish, such as frozen corn. Makes One Cup
Recently attended a weight loss seminar and learned that the following substances help the body with weight loss:
1) Green Tea Extract
2) Lipoic Acid
3) White Kidney Bean
By exercising each morning, eating a plant based diet that is full of foods that don’t have a nutrition label, I am at my ideal weight. You can also reach your goals if you eat a potato in its natural form without butter or sour cream and apply the same principles that I have.
