But if you are running on empty with these three essential ingredients that I am going to cover off today you will not allow your body to lose weight no matter how little you eat. Your missing some vital foundations in your chosen diet
As a vegan or as a vegetarian, that’s the easy part to say “I just won’t eat meat, then I’ll be healthy and slimy” – maybe you’ve made your decision based on what you’ve heard, that there is so much yuk in meat now, hormones, toxins, and you just don’t want to digest or have that in your body, let alone the moral standpoint many of us take based on not wanting to eat animals. SO, let’s get clear what we need to include as a vegan or vegeterian when we cut out some sources of nutrients in our diet.
What so many of us forget is to include these 3 essentials that everybody needs to stay healthy, if we miss the very foundation of what builds the body, the body cannot release the weight.
So today I have covered off the 3 essential things that we need to be including to keep us in TIP TOP shape with energy to burn.

I am Fiona Robertson the body Renewer and a Body Whisperer and you will find me with a shopping trolly full of fresh dark green salads from the market every Friday and with lots of plants and veggies for the whole week. Following my body code. You know if you ask anyone, especially my kids what it is I actually eat? they will say SALAD… but possibly they will miss all the other stuff I am doing that keeps me healthy and sane. So that I still enjoy eating at the table with the family.
I have experimented with food for what seems like ever, over 40 years and at least I know I have it down for what works for me and what I love to eat. And I have my sanity back. Yes, I admit I went a little mad, being obsessed with food and got all stressed and bent out of shape about food. I even ended up overeating on the healthiest food, as I was not considering my stress levels when I was dieting, This was insanity and why I am sharing the foods that considerably help you stay sane.
For months on end, I depleting my stores by detoxing and extreme dieting away all of my stores of the good stuff I am going to share with you today were at ZERO, and it was then I bottomed out and discovered why that had happened to me. It was then that I started to listen to my body, her cravings, her symptoms, and the stubborn weight even at my starving point and I began to hear what she needed, wanted and lacked most. Cravings for seaweed, salt or chocolate were all signs of a depleted system.
So today lets concentrate on the 3 essential elements we need to include to stay in TIP TOP form assisting your mental state as well as your physical state – when we change our diet want to lose some pounds and stay healthy in the mind and body.
You see I know now what it takes to keep those macronutrients charged. They are all available naturally and via not chemical supplements, that take just minutes to take, but that help you stay super healthy and fully charged. You can still take them when you are travelling and keep you fat burning and the weight loss at an optimum and feeling full of energy on the busiest of days.
Macronutrients are the energy or calories in the food that we eat, these comes from three main macronutrients: proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Macro means large, and these basic nutrients are necessary in large quantities to sustain our growth, metabolism, and other bodily functions. To keep us healthy, saddly some of us removed a big portion and never replaced the basic foundatioins of what kept us feeling healthy and able to run a busy life long term.
The macronutrients include:
- Carbon (C)
- Hydrogen (H)
- Oxygen (O)
- Nitrogen (N)
- Phosphorus (P)
- Potassium (K)
- Calcium (Ca)
- Magnesium (Mg)
Here are the TOP Macronutrients I love to inform you about today.
Chlorella, Loaded with essential green Chlorophyll, Carbohydrates, Vitamins and minerals and gives you lots of energy.
Astronauts even take these when they go into space they are so packed with essential Macronutrients
Moringa leaf or the whole plant including in the nut, leaf and bark, has been proved to seriously lower blood sugar levels.
Spirulina strong neuro protectors in it. 4 x antioxidents as the best blueberry. Wow
Mint: Anti microbic, anti viral, anti tumour, Anti allergenic and anti oxidic properties and it is very tasty
Found growing everywhere all around the world and has 100’s of different varieties. I particularly love my chocolate mind plant…
Macha Macha Tea, known for reducing stress and promote relaxation and enhance mental clarity,
Now Who does not want that. Any way what was I saying. ???, mmm Oh yes.
Wheat grass: 1 ounce is all you need and that will be equivalent to a tabletop of fresh vegetables. Like 2 lbs of greens.
As I say to my kids who were the prettiest people in the film ‘Lord of the Rings’ and WHO lived forever YES –the Elfs, So light and agile and such a good aim with the bow and arrow. Depicting GREAT health and who only ate salads much to the repulsion of the dwarfs..
Ashwaganda, Lowers anxiety, helps with stress levels, and listen to this decreases depression. Wow let’s take a bucket today.
Turmeric: Curcuma if you’re in France or Europe, FAR superior to treating depression with that old Prozac that everyone has known someone to take at some time, numbing them out from life. Cashews also by the way great for alleviating depression. And Turmeric a must for lowering Blood sugar levels;
Lemon, helps to enormously to flush and de toxify the body.
Beets: help with energy in a workout and with stamina. Well basically they are grown as a root crop develop below the ground so are in fact a sugar, well who knew.
They are not on my list but as good for me but if you are moving and exercising a lot a lot they are a good source of fuel. If you are stagnant for a lot of the day then don’t drink beet juice its pure sugar. That goes for many of these popular juices just a complete nonsense sugar party . You may as well drink a soda pop.
Monk fruit, No insulin spikes with this sugar alternative. 170 X sweeter than sugar and no insulin spikes. Zero Calories. Not that I’m advocating cutting calories Your body needs fuel but you may just be the one who is fueled not by sugars. Monk fruit is ZERO glycemic index so does not spike insulin. BONUS.
There are many other foods that act super well and give us so much in the way of macronutrients such as seaweed, Coconut oil,

Then go and make it and enjoy every mouthful. Delight in the texture, flavor and ask your body to absorb what she needs.
