“The concept of energy and the flow of that energy in the human body is the core of the current explosion in healing. The healing principle is to “balance” the energy in the body by using relaxation to counter the body’s reaction to stress.” The Berkeley Holistic Health Center
The High Energy Diet integrates all the tools for living a healthy, balanced life. Many times busy people will see or read something that they would love to integrate into their lives. They also lack the time to plan and execute a total health plan.
The High Energy Diet includes food/diet choices, exercise choices, and emotional/mental techniques for stress reduction. All the pre-tests, measurements, references for each of the three categories (diet, exercise, and emotional/mental tools) are given.
We have spent 30 years researching, enjoying, and implementing self-help, exercise, diet, nutrition, spiritual, emotional, mental, psychology and addiction books. Our central focus is on holistic healing—mind, body and soul. So the High Energy Diet includes the books we have found to have become our “textbooks”.
These books are incorporated in our Changemaker Library. Our goal is that each person using the High Energy Diet can create and continually change her/his health plan. Health takes effort to maintain. Each of us knows what we need to attain our highest level of health.
The real secret to weight loss is portion control. That is the main reason diet companies sell the food with the diet. The portions are regulated and controlled. For portion control, learn to use measuring cups and spoons to correctly choose the right portion. Some suggested portions are included in an article in South Florida Sun-Sentinel January 21, 2008 article.
