A typical day’s meals should look like this:
  • Breakfast should be easy-to-digest foods like hot oatmeal, hot cereal, or fresh fruit. Don’t eat egg yolks because it’s hard to digest – just egg whites.
  • Lunch should be your largest meal when you eat the heaviest foods – cheese, eggs, meat and desserts.
  • Dinnertime is when your digestive fire is the weakest, so this should be your smallest and lightest meal. Dinner should consist of small proportions of easy-to-digest foods such as soups or cooked vegetables. Dinner shouldn’t be eaten after 7 p.m. because your body’s digestion gets weaker at night and cannot process food as well; undigested food is turned into toxins and often stored in your fat cells.
A raw silk glove massage, called gharshana, is an easy and inexpensive home spa treatment that fights fat. This type of massage helps to energize and detoxify the body. It’s specifically designed to help with weight loss, cellulite and water retention by improving lymphatic drainage and circulation. This helps to move toxins and fat out of your body and stimulates digestion.
The three main areas for the massage are the arms, abdomen, and legs. For the arms,begin with circles on the shoulder and proceed down the upper arm with back and forth strokes covering all surfaces. Make circles on the elbow and then back and forth strokes on the forearm. Resume making circles on the wrist. On the hand, make back and forth movements emphasizing the spaces between each finger. Repeat the same sequence on the other arm.
For the stomach, you start with a clockwise motion first, which supports the natural direction of digestion. Then massage the abdomen using horizontal strokes with hands moving in opposite directions. Next, use up and down strokes on the sides of the torso.
