I promise to show you how to eat a vegetarian fat loss diet that is simple, healthy, cost-conscious, environmentally-friendly, and easy.
My name is Kardena Pauza, and I’m a personal trainer and certified nutrition expert. I’ve also been married to my wonderful husband Mark Pauza for 3 years, and I’ll tell you a funny story about how I met him in a minute.
Like most of my personal training clients (and probably just like you!), I was brought up on the S.A.D. diet (as I like to call it). That stands for Standard American Diet.
In fact, I probably ate one of the unhealthiest diets in the world, even though I lived in the USA where I had every healthy food available to me!
I grew up on pizza, burgers, burritos, ice cream, soda, and my “world famous” kool-aid (that I made with extra sugar). As you can imagine, this diet caused me to gain weight, break out in acne, and feel completely miserable and lazy all the time.
However, something happened in my teenage years that helped me start connecting food with how I felt. There were a few embarrassing moments when I got violently sick after eating factory farmed meat and at age 18 I stopped eating beef and drinking milk. But it would still be a few years later until I stopped eating chicken, turkey and fish as well.
One day on another long car ride to my grandmother’s house, I decided to skip the gas station road-trip munchies that I usually bought and I ate apples and drank water instead. When we arrived, I felt amazing, unlike in the past when the fast food left me feeling nauseous and fatigued for hours.
By paying attention to my body, I was slowly figuring out that the S.A.D. diet was the worst thing I could feed my body. And as I began my career in health and fitness I continued to study nutrition every chance I had.
Finally, in 2003 I completely changed my life by adopting a meat-free diet. And since then, I’ve been living the vegetarian lifestyle and loving it.
At first I made many common vegetarian eating mistakes, but with the help of a pioneer in the world of raw food and vegan eating, I’ve developed a simple, high-energy diet meal plan that has helped me build the body of my dreams.
And I’m here to show you how to do it as well. Once you get started with a meat-free diet (and even dairy-free and egg-free), you’ll be amazed at how much mental and physical energy you can have all day long.
You’ll no longer feel sluggish or tired after eating big heavy meals. You won’t fall asleep at your desk. You won’t be a zombie at work or at home when your kids want to play. And best of all, the body fat will just melt right off of you thanks to your new diet.
When I first started eating my vegan diet I quickly realized I had so much energy that I felt like a “rock star”! I know that sounds cliché, but I was able to get everything done on my “to do” list and I no longer was making excuses or procrastinating.
People could see that I was much more vibrant and radiant but they were shocked when I told them about my diet. As you can imagine, people have a lot of preconceived notions about a vegetarian diet and think that it will just make them weak, tired, pale, and sickly looking. But that is NOT the case if you eat the right foods.
One day at the gym, I met a charming young man named Mark Pauza. Like most busy young men, Mark was working long hours at his software job and eating the factory-farmed, processed foods typical of the S.A.D. diet. As a result, he was tired and overweight. He had lost his vitality and energy.
So I shared with him my secrets to eating a vegan diet. And within just a few short weeks, Mark had lost over 37 pounds and the side effects that go along with being overweight – including excessive sweating and body odor.
Today, Mark and I live the vegetarian lifestyle to the fullest. We eat only raw, living foods and have more energy than people half our age. And I want to share this lifestyle with you.
But don’t worry if this sounds extreme or complex, because it’s not. It’s actually quite simple to adopt a meat-free diet. And if you don’t want to drop dairy or eggs, we’ll show you how to eat those foods in a healthy way as well.
However, once you try going completely animal-free, I know you’ll be hooked on the new vitality and energy in your life.
I look forward to helping you, and please let me know if you have any questions!
See you in the kitchen,
