Why Phyto Plus
The most fundamental principle of weight loss is calorie reduction. Fewer calories equals less weight. What this fundamental principle fails to recognize is the quality of your calories. Is eliminating or reducing healthy calories a good idea?
The Standard American Diet, appropriately accronym’d SAD, is full of empty, useless calories. These empty calories provide fuel, they’ll keep the engine running, but what they don’t provide is nutrition. And the human body craves nutrition.
Hunger is your body’s way of telling you that it is in need of nutrition. If you don’t provide that nutrition, the hunger will continue. This pattern of improperly addressing your hunger with the wrong calories is what leads to weight gain. In this regard, maintaining a healthy weight is more about calorie replacement rather than calorie reduction. Replacing the carb heavy fuel with nutritionally rich calories will result in satiety. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally feel full?
What’s the answer? Well, there is absolutely no substitute for a healthy wholefood diet. You need adequate protein to maintain muscle mass and build brain matter. You need adequate fats, ideally a 1:1 ratio of Omega 3s to Omega 6s. These fats are used to make hormones and replenish skin and soft tissue. And finally, you need phytonutrition, or plant based food. The vitamins and minerals that are acquired from phyto nutrition are used to catalyze every single biochemical reaction in the human body. Without these phyto-based catalysts there is inefficiency. And when there is inefficiency, things slow down.
The problem with phytonutrition is that it’s hard to get an adequate amount of it and it’s even more difficult to acquire the proper variety.
With these needs in mind, I created Phyto Plus. It’s a whole food supplement with all the basics PLUS some flashy and/or exotic stuff I’ve encountered throughout my travels.
I designed it for my weight loss patients to help remedy their skewed satiety response. When taken in combination with my 2.0 diet protocol, it gives you everything you need to satiate your hunger, minus the the wasted junk. So you’ll feel full on the most minimal amount of calories. I call it smart weight loss. Why struggle with calorie deprivation when you can eat smart?
All the Phyto Basics PLUS So Cool Exotics
The body has basic demands. I addressed all of those with Phyto Plus, but I also added a few exotics that will take your health above and beyond just basic.
Maca Root Peruano is a root grown high in the Andes Mountains of Peru and has an extraordinary amount of healing properties. It’s widely consumed among the Peruvians to boost virility and improve sexual health. Peruvians often add it to their morning juice. For women, it’s taken to improve mood and reduce the negative side-effects of menopause. It’s also been shown to improve cognitive function and memory and is currently being studied as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease.
Wheatgrass is a flat out super-food. I had heard about the wheatgrass trend before moving to Vietnam, but seeing it used in practice, by all classes of Vietnamese, absolutely sold me. It’s now one of my staples and I can’t be more grateful that it is. There are so many things to say about wheatgrass, but what I find most intriguing is it’s abundance of chlorophyll. Cholophyll is what gives vitality and life to the plants and trees that produce our oxygen. Whenever I have a wheatgrass juice, I feel like I’m harnessing that vitality. You will too.
Acai Berries are also quite trendy, and for a reason. The word is synonymous with antioxidants and the Brazilians are crazy for it. You wanna know why Brazilians don’t age? It’s the Acai Berries.
Spirulina is a super-food of the ancient Aztecs of Mexico. It has powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, but Spirulina is most commonly take to lower cholesterol levels.
The remaining ingredients in Phyto Plus are listed below. I put a lot of thought into this. After someone loses 20-30 pounds in 30-40 days on my HCG 2.0 diet plan, they have a lot of apprehension about keeping the weight off.
First of all, keeping the weight off is a really good problem to have. Second, there is certainly some lifestyle change required in order to maintain your weight loss, but be smart about it. Don’t beat yourself up with calorie reduction alone. Give your body what it needs and it will reward you.
