The Flaxseed Weight Loss Diet

Woman on a BeachHere is an easy, natural and healthy way to lose weight. It's Mitra's Three Step Flaxseed Diet. There are only three steps involved. You can eat as much as you want but if you follow these three steps strictly for one month, you are bound to lose a lot of weight. Moreover, this weight will be lost naturally, and will stay off for good if you continue a healthy eating program.

In the first month, you will likely see dramatic weight loss. In the following months, the ideal weight loss is best limited to four to six pounds per month, unless you are obese, in which case the ideal number will be higher.

Here is the simple Three Step Flaxseed Diet:

Step One: Consume one tablespoon of ground flaxseeds per day.

Step Two: Eat as much as you like throughout the day but eat only from the 100 healthiest foods. Try not to eat anything which is not on this list especially anything with white flour or sugar in it, or any kinds of processed foods.

Step Three: Burn a minimum of 1,000 calories in aerobic exercise per week. This is equivalent to walking about ten miles over one week. You can spread it out into four 2.5 mile walks per week or any other combination you prefer. You can walk at any speed you like, but brisk walking is better.

That's it. That is all the info you need to lose weight naturally and quickly.

More details about the three step flaxseed diet:

Step One: A one pound bag of ground flax seed should cost you less than four dollars. You can also buy whole flax seeds and grind them yourself in your coffee grinder. But don't eat the whole flax seeds without grinding them. They are hard to digest and you would be missing out on their nutritional benefits as they passed whole through your digestive system.

Flaxseeds are very rich in fiber and omega-3 fats. They are filling and will satiate your appetite. The omega-3 component will be very good for your mental mood and health.

You can mix them into your cereal (remember, only use the natural cereals such as oatmeal recommended in the 100 healthiest foods list). Or you can just blend them with hot water as your first morning drink. You can also stir them into your scrambled eggs, yogurt snack or any other more complicated dish you are preparing. They have a nutty taste and will not spoil the goodness of your meal.

Step Two: You truly can eat as much as you want, but it must be limited to the 100 healthiest foods listed at the bottom of the page at The World's Healthiest Foods website. This exceptional and non-profit website also provides simple recipes for cooking with these foods. Ideally, if you are hungry beyond your three meals, you will make up the extra eating from the vegetable and legume categories on this list. Keep the dairy products to a minimum.

Don't deny yourself as much food as you care to eat. If you are currently very obese, there is likely an emotional hangup with food as part of your struggle with weight loss. This program is bound to change that. By keeping you off white flour, processed foods and sugar, this program will change your relationship and dependence on the wrong kinds of food. Give it time, and go ahead and help yourself to as much as you want of the right kinds of foods for the first month. Your appetite for food will soon regulate itself as you begin to feel better.

Step Three: Get out there and burn a minimum of 1,000 calories per week. It's easy to do once you've established a routine. This moderate amount of exercise will help rev up your metabolism. If you are fortunate enough to be able to do it outside, all the better as this will ensure you get the Vitamin D necessary for your well-being (from sunlight) and the fresh air will help invigorate you.

This is awesome! I have never heard of this kind of diet before! I have a question though... I already get tons of aerobic excerise (I do the FIRM) they do weight lifting, streching, and aerobics. I also eat really healthy (I think). But after having my second baby, I can't seem to lose the 20 pounds I need to. I lost all my pregnancy weight, Thank God! This weight is just what I have always had, and I can't seem to lose it, even with my "healthy" lifestyle. I heard of people using flaxseed while dieting, but I never knew why. So my question is this: Will adding the flaxseed to my routine really help me lose the weight? Thank you for everything, God Bless you!!

Thanks for your comments.
There have been some studies done that show omega 3 fatty acids help ensure normal metabolism and appetitite levels. As flaxseeds are the best concentrated source of omega 3, I think they'd be a good addition to the daily diet of anyone who wants to lose weight. Here's a bit more about this from WHFoods:

Omega 3's reduce the risk of becoming obese and improve the body's ability to respond to insulin by stimulating the secretion of leptin, a hormone that helps regulate food intake, body weight and metabolism, and is expressed primarily by adipocytes (fat cells)

Flax seeds and chia seeds are also great sources for Omega 3. The benefit of flax seed and the benefit of chia seeds are many. Both flax seed and chia seeds contain fiber, Omega-3 and lignans. This helps lower cholesterol and can also benefit people at risk for diabetes by regulating blood sugar by slowing down the body's absorption of sugar. Flax seed and chia seeds are also both great sources for antioxidants.

This diet sounds very interesting, however I'm a vegan and I was wondering if this can work for a vegan diet since there aren't many dairy-free and non-meat options on the list. Thanks so much.

My friend told me about this diet and I am anxious to try it. Her coworker lost 80 lbs between Dec 2011-April 2012. Amazing and she felt great doing it!

Can salt be used on this three step program?

Mitra said...

yes, if you do not eat processed foods you can enjoy adding a bit of salt to the natural foods you've cooked. Processed foods however contain a huge amount of sodium. Check your labels if you are buying processed will be amazed at how much salt you are consuming
