The author of the Lite-Body® method is Gabriela Wolbers, graduate cum laude of the Industrial Chemistry University “Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest” in 1979. Her passion for organic chemistry became the background for the practical applications used in the Lite-Body® method. The intention of the author is to make known to the world that which she discovered and tested as bringing immediate results to our health and our wellbeing. Improvement of these aspects, leads inherently to ease of being, human progress and evolution.
WE ARE ALL ONE is the philosophy that lies behind the Lite Body® method that considers that people are open systems interacting with all the other existing open systems in the Universe. Nutritional elements alone are not sufficient to promote a healthy way of living.
Lite-Body® s first approach is our physical body; what it’s made of and how we can give it that which is compatible with and essential for life. Our body is made of: ca 70% water (84% for infants); 12% protein; 12 to 15% fat (men less than women); 3,5% minerals; 0,5% glucose and glycogen. Research showed that our bodies need 50 essential ingredients (out of which 45 are nutrients) in order to survive. We will refer to these 50 essential ingredients as ESSENTIALS. They are:
- Essential nutrients; 8 amino acids (10 for children and 11 for infants); 2 essential fatty acids; 13 vitamins; 20 or 21 minerals
- Energy source (complex carbohydrates; vegetables, grains and fruit)
Because our bodies cannot make these vital life-sustaining ingredients, they must come from external sources. It is important to note that not only do we need these ingredients, but also we need all 50 of them all the time in the right amount. A lack of ANY of the ESSENTIALS will impair the proper working of our bodies and will lead in the short term to sickness and in the long term to degenerative conditions. First the cells will not get all their essentials then membrane of the cells will get damaged then toxins will get easy access into the cells, then the functions of the cells will get impaired then they will loose vitality (they loose their grip on life) and start degenerating. Then groups of cells will degenerate, then entire organs. In the beginning stage of degeneration the process can still be reversed, but in a critical stage of cell degeneration the process cannot be reversed anymore.
In addition to the ESSENTIALS there are also some other supportive elements that greatly enhance our health. These are fibers and friendly bacteria that keep our digestive tract in good condition.
Because we are all different and because it is difficult and very elaborate to establish exactly what Essentials our body misses, Lite-Body® starts by including all the nutrient Essentials in enough quantity (not too little and not too much) for the body to decide what it needs. Lite-Body® does not attempt to make diagnostics or treat disease. Lite-Body® attempts to offer the body the possibility to get all its Essentials in one go and to feed the cells with what they really need to live happily.
Lite-Body® takes into consideration scientific discoveries in connection with the qualities, interconnectedness and working of essential “good” and toxic & not essential “bad” categories of; fats, protein, carbohydrates, water, vitamins and minerals, air and light.
Lite-Body® also takes into consideration that during our evolution on planet Earth all-relevant data has been stored in our cell’s memory. Our bodies store the databank of the totality of all that knowledge. We also take into consideration that we went through all phases of food consumption for the purpose of survival and evolution and as a result of this, we are basically omnivorous. The restrictions that some people make to some food groups are no more than personal preferences that should be respected. The fact that different people have different preferences shows that there is a big diversity of preferences in the world. It does not mean that one preference is better than another one. Therefore we consider that standard preferences should not be imposed as a norm. The result of this is an all round, all including life and health supporting nutrition (clean water, essential amino acids (protein), essential fats, good carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals) tailored for the human body. If we were to give it a diet name, Lite-Body® can be called The Essential Diet. Lite-Body® promotes moderation and diversity in nutrition and is based on the human Essential needs. The proportion between the Essentials has been chosen in such a way to promote the balance needed by our body.
The foods that are detrimental to human life and health are not included in the method. These are;
- Refined sugars that turn into saturated fatty acids that rob the body of vitamins and minerals needed for the metabolism and digestion.
- Refined and altered oils that interfere with the function of the Essential fatty acids.
- Processed foods that abound in saturated fats and sugars but lack on minerals and vitamins.
- Forced grown foods treated with chemicals that impair the digestion, metabolism and are toxic.
- Elements that is not specific to the human body such as Aluminum.
Simultaneous with the process of nurturing and cleansing our bodies, Lite-Body® applies other meaningful tools for shaping up other human aspects such as, mental aspects (building a good mindset), emotional aspects and our connection with the Source.
The Lite-Body® method promotes and coins two revolutionary ideas (pillars) and their practical application.
The first pillar of the Lite-Body® method is;
ESTABLISHING PRIORITIES (natural way of evolution) instead of DEADLINES (being Ego specific) and the practical application of this idea in our daily life.
The second pillar of the Lite-Body® method is a paradigm shift:
Shifting the human operating mode from SURVIVAL MODE (based on fear) to RESPONSIBILITY MODE (based on responsibility).
The practical application of the method and its pillars are discussed and detailed in the Progress Journal that is delivered with the Lite-Body® program. In the light of her intention, the author of the Lite-Body® method has kept the quality of the products included in the method very high and the costs affordable for all walks of life. The method does not intend to sell cookbooks as enough excellent work has been done on that field.
The author stays congruent with her intention to make known to the world that which she discovered and tested as bringing immediate results to our health and our wellbeing. Improvement of these two aspects, leads inherently to ease of being, human progress and evolution.
THE ‘YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT ’MYTH
Does this ring a bell?
This adage circulated for such a long time and has been quoted so many times that its origin is lost. Time to bust this myth. You are a being of indescribable perfection and all that exists is interrelated. You are part of an intricate order and this higher order is part of you. As the Universe is trying to tell us: WE ARE ALL ONE.
We are much more than what we eat as you can read in the blue print of the Lite-Body® method (its philosophy). After you embark on this journey you will realize that which you really are.
THE MYTH ABOUT ‘BEING EITHER A WINNER OR A LOSER’ – THE MYTH OF THE TWO CATEGORIES.
Another myth has been circulating for quite some time about two categories of people. The first category of people includes those who can eat whatever they want and still not gain weight. The second category includes those who put on weight just by breathing in air.
The myth has circulated for such a long time that it got a life of its own and became a multinational strong belief that made millions of victims.
I don’t know about you but according to this myth I am included in the second category. Till now I was not able to find any person included in the first category. The secret of those in the first category is that they monitor and guard their weight ferociously and every time there is a slight increase in their weight they act immediately (they cut out sugar, pasta, bread and alcohol). If I would continue to believe in this myth (which I did till not too long ago), it would lead me to the logical conclusion that there is something wrong with me. This feeling of guilt automatically brings with it a down spiral of negative feelings and emotions. Furthermore, the myth has been reinforced by a myriad of diet books and self-help books that try to convince us that being healthy and slim is just a state of mind. Yeah, Right!
It is now time to bust the myth of the two categories. The truth of the matter is that all the people (with the rare exceptions of those born with genetically or other discrepancies) are born with a sophisticated defense mechanism and thus prepared to face reasonable physical, emotional and mental challenges. However, because of constant toxic bombardment (untrue myths, negative thoughts, rejections, pain, poisonous food, polluted drinks, etc) and lack of all essential foods, we get clogged and our inborn ability to properly defend ourselves gets impaired. This impairment sets us on a permanent defensive mood, which is the number one enemy of our disconnection from our true self and our evolution. Because our inborn defense mechanism becomes obsolete, we learn to build another defense mechanism, which is the fake persona, the social face that we show to the world in order to keep up appearances and to be able to function in the world.
The relationship between the fake persona and food.
The fake persona is the distorted version of who we really are. This implies that its relationship with food is... you guessed right... fake. Depending on the predominant aspect of our fake persona – on a physical, emotional or mental level - there will be all kind of peculiar/fake relationships with food.
The “obsessive diet” eaters – are people who don’t take human biology into consideration. These people are obsessed with following strict dietary regimes, literally staving themselves on a low calorie diet. This practice has been proven scientifically wrong many times over.
The emotional eaters - This category is the biggest category without a doubt. Each one of us has at certain times been an emotional eater. It is so easy to built an emotional relationship with food. Food will never let you down, people and relationships do. Food can be trusted in a world that seems to offer little trust. Sugary foods and drinks or chocolates will never shout and scream that they don’t want to be drank or eaten. With them you are safe and in total control. In a world that seems to lack certainty, pleasure, trust and truth you can always rely on food. Food is the missing link, the universal instant supplier of ALL the good feelings. It can even supply Santa Clause according to some advertisers. And who knows? Every time you drink a soft drink…Santa might just show up. Each and every time we (the fake persona) look for instant emotional gratification and fulfillment we EAT. This instant gratification leads to clogging our system, which leads to an anticlimax once the good feeling is gone. This sudden anticlimax requires a new dose of instant gratification, which leads to more eating, more clogging, and the down spiral is set in motion. Does this ring a bell? The only approach to emotional eating is to ask ourselves every time we get “ hungry for goodies” if we are hungry for food or for love, affection, and appreciation. More of this will follow in your daily progress journal.
The mind over matter thinkers and eaters - are people who rationalize everything. They know better and are always right. Furthermore, this category uses the power of their will and analyzes all the pros and cons of any situation before taking a decision. This category of people tends to follow the low calorie semi starvation diets because it seems so logical from the arithmetical point of view. One plus one plus one is three. How can the result of adding more components be greater that their sum? The synergy concept; the result of adding more components is greater that their sum - does not make sense to them. Perhaps these people are most at risk of falling ill quicker than the other categories because they are determined to follow through with what they think is the “ right thing “ to eat. After all, mind over matter is their credo.
In time we lost track of our real nature and have become what culture, family and community, circumstances, have made us believe we are. The Lite-Body® method is the journey that puts us back on track, letting our inner light shine through.
WE ARE BORN TO SHINE!
