Within just ten days, Sonoma's healthier choices will change the way you think and feel about food, trimming your waist — and making way for a slimmer you — for life!
Wave 1 refers to the first 10 days of your new Sonoma way of eating and thinking about food. Although Wave 1 is the shortest stage of The New Sonoma Diet, this is the period where you'll see the most rapid weight loss and start to feel the biggest difference in you health, especially for increased energy levels. You will also start improving those habits most known for sabotaging anyone’s health and weight goals.
Great habits to gain from Wave 1:
- You are on your way to losing the cravings and dependence on highly-refined foods and sugar that most known for adding inches to your waist and increasing the health problems related to these extra pounds. Sugary desserts, white bread and crackers, sweetened cereals, and the like will be replaced by healthier but equally satisfying alternatives, mainly whole grains.
- You will be more mindful and aware about “how” you eat and the choices you make. You will lose the haphazard habit of eating whatever happens to be available or familiar. Balanced meals with the right combination of foods, including your 12 Sonoma Power Foods, are a prerequisite for long-term success and healthy weight loss.
- Take the guess work out of your portion control. Most of us have no idea we are overdoing it with food portions. “Pre-plating” your meals according to the New Sonoma Smart Plate guidelines is a simple strategy to prevent the kind of mindless eating that leads to overeating and ensures you are eating the best combinations of nourishing and satisfying foods.
In addition to whole grains, lean meats, and plenty of vegetables, you can also enjoy fruits during Wave 1 in moderation. They are packed with vitamins and antioxidants that are essential to adhering to the Sonoma approach of enjoying delicious, wholesome foods.
