One of the main reasons I created the Fitworks program for Itworks Global was because I LOVE food! I love shopping for fresh ingredients, cooking wonderful dishes, and sharing the joy of good food with my friends and family. My desire for you is to see food as your friend and enjoy it as I do.
God made food for us to enjoy. There is a huge difference in fresh-from-the-farm food and packaged, artificially flavored, preserved food from a box or can. In this chapter you will begin cooking with real ingredients found in your local grocery store, while learning how to use food to your greatest benefit.
This is how I know that Food is your friend, that’s right!!—when, how often, and what you eat can rev up your metabolic engine. My fundamental goal as your FITCOACH™ is to teach you how to use food to increase thermogenesis and lose fat permanently. The 7 Day Fitstart is not a diet, but a simple, effective program that teaches you how to use the right foods in the right amount—with delicious ideas—so you will never feel hungry or deprived. You will feel more satisfied when you eat, burn more calories, and lose more body fat.
Remember, it is physically impossible to shed body fat when you are starving yourself with restricted diets. Your meal plan is going to be healthy and nutritionally balanced to fit your own personal needs. You will enjoy delicious food as you go from where you are now to where you want to be in the shortest time possible. The 7 Day Fitstart is not just about looking better, I want you to feel better and enjoy living a healthy, happy life.
Let’s face it—how to lose fat can be confusing. There are so many books, videos, and gurus out there it’s hard to really know whom to believe. As your FITCOACH™ I will clear up this confusion and make this process simple. Don’t misunderstand—achieving permanent fat loss is not easy and it’s going to take commitment and hard work. This is the “secret”—all the knowledge in the world is useless unless you apply it. There are no shortcuts.
