Today I answer questions about the Raw Food Diet and menstruation– Questions like: What does it mean if you get onto raw foods and your period skips or becomes irregular? Is it healthy not to have a period? Is there is a relation between the lunar cycle and one’s menstrual cycle?

I received a few emails asking me if fasting on juice or water will put people in starvation mode and therefore after the fast, will they regain all the weight back and gain more? If done correctly, No!! The first thing I want to emphasize is that unless you are doing a water fast for a real long time and have very little body fat, you actually can’t put yourself in starvation mode. As for slowing the metabolism when fasting, yes the fasting does slow your metabolism, put its not permanent, once you re-introducing solid food correctly into your diet, your metabolism will start increasing and get back to normal. Many people have notice the great benefit of fasting is that it decreases their appetite and they become much more conscious of what and how much they are eating. I have so many clients that after a fast, actually continue losing weight because they don’t need to be eating as much as they did before!

Over the weekend I received an email from a viewer that just started the raw food diet. She was concerned because she is having major bloating, gas, constipation for the past 2 weeks and it’s not getting any better. I would be concerned as well!!
This does happen to quite a few people and it also reminds me of the many people who tell me they’d love to eat raw fruits and vegetables but they just get so bloated. I always feel terrible when I hear this because people think its the fruits and vegetables that is causing the bloating and gas– but infact its actually a clogged up intestinal track. Think about it– when a pipe is clogged, nothing can go down, it just sits and putrifies, that exactly what happens to someone who has a clogged up intestinal track– what ever they eat, stays in the stomch too long and starts to ferment, and therefore causing all the gas and bloat. It’s not the food, its the person!!
Check out today’s video and I’ll explain what you can do to unclog your colon, how to eat when you have this problem and other easy tips to ensure no gas or bloating!
It’s been a late winter here in Montreal and today it snowed for the very first time this season. It reminded me that winter is here and all the holidays are on their way. It also reminded me of the ‘Holiday 10!’ So what exactly is the ‘Holiday 10?’ Well, at this time of year, between now and New Year, there are a great many people who put on 10 pounds over the holidays. The holidays are known to be the time of indulgence and mass weight gain!!
I don’t want that to happen to you!
So today I decided to talk about what you can do now and over the next month of holiday dinner parties and celebrations to avoid gaining weight, and maybe if you want to, actually lose some weight!!!
