“When we look at a picture of a beautiful island beach,
we are reminded of The Earth Element by the sand dunes, the tropical flora, and the palm trees…”
One of the exciting new concepts in this diet plan is that “The Lost Island Diet” is the first book to challenge the logic of The Four Food Groups. Regarding these groups (Meats, Dairy, Fruits & Vegetables, and Whole Grains & Cereals), we have always been taught that bread is part of the Whole Grain & Cereal Group. It has probably been grouped there because one of its ingredients – flour – is made from a cereal. The Lost Island Diet strongly challenges this logic — and examines our habit of eating yeast and sodium bicarbonate made bread and baked goods. It suggests that this is one of the reasons people are getting and staying fat. OF the Four Food Groups, this diet asks the question – “Why is bread included?”. Because when we think about it, out of all of the groups, bread is the only food product that does not exist in Nature. Even yoghurt and cheese are found in Nature. But, where have we ever seen a Pretzel Tree or a Bagel Bush? Doctors and Nutritionists inadvertently support this non-bread concept when asked how patients should lose weight. For example, nutritionists advise 36 foods we should avoid if we want to lose weight. Interestingly, more than half of these foods are baked goods like cakes, pies, cookies, and donuts. So, if we habitually cut out “baked goods” from our diet and thoughts, we eliminate half of the recommended foods to avoid. If we also eliminate soft drinks, fruit juices, fatty foods, and ice cream… we cut out much, much more!
