Tips for a successful nutritional lifestyle turnaround (taken from my book More Than a Conqueror: Regaining your willpower over food
“Get free from old destructive habits by simply forming new ones” (Joyce Meyer, Starting Your Day Right, pg. 241)—add more raw nuts, grains, fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. Bake instead of frying. I make a mean oven fried chicken, and it works for oven fried fish as well. Debone your chicken breasts or chicken thighs or buy them already deboned and sauté them in a small amount of oil, about 2-3 Tbs., instead of deep frying (flour coating is not necessary).
Deliberately eat fish twice a week, the kind of fish that have scales and fins. Avoid the scavengers of the sea.
If you are used to piling your plate up at meal time, change this habit. Eat a sensible portion of food. Go back and get more if you need to. But caution, don’t make too many extra trips otherwise you will find yourself back in the same predicament—overeating. eventually embrace these new habits.
Start believing God and begin making confessions that you can afford to buy organic, pesticide free fruit and vegetables, range free chickens, grass fed beef, bison, lamb, and goat. If all you can afford at the moment is organic fruit, start there and be consistent. Show God and yourself that you mean business. God will take you on whatever level choose. God will honor what you honor. He told me once, ‘Set your standard and never live below it’. Make a decision regarding which standard you want. Be sincere, be consistent. Get heaven’s attention and heaven will back you up. He wants you to win.
