Start your Waning Moon Diet program

Start your Waning Moon Diet program

If you have followed our LWTM lifestyle program for a while you will have seen that we always advocate starting a diet program during the time of the Waning Moon. 

LWTM Weightloss Program

As a quick reminder, you will see this symbol popping up with the arrival of the Gibbous Waning Moon and staying on until the later stages of the Waning Moon. You can then either ignore it or get ready for your 2-week program – the exact details of this program will be out soon.

You may be benefitting from a 10-hour feeding window and a 14-hour fast (you can only drink black tea/coffee, herbal tea, or water – nothing else!). During the 10-hour feeding window eat normally, but try to cut out the worst offenders

Alcohol, sweets, anything fried or overly processed, fizzy drinks – even the sugar-free ones, large amounts of carbohydrates, like potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, fruit juices, and desserts

I always advocate liquid fast days during the 4th Quarter and around the New Moon. A day you just eat soups and drink – so no solids. It can be quite tough at first, but over time your body will get used to it and you will have far more energy than before. Then have a 2-week break(the time of the Waxing and Full Moon) and try to stabilize your weight loss before embarking on another 14-day cycle.

Here is an article that tells you more about holistic weight management. 

We are currently working on a detailed program that you can use in the future. But for now, you can follow a program of your own choice. Ideally, finish your program with a Liquid Fast Day at New Moon.

Keeping fit and healthy from head to toe – Kidneys and bladder

Keeping fit and healthy from head to toe – Kidneys and bladder

Today this body region is especially susceptible to exercise and looking after it. The highlighted region is the kidneys and the bladder. 

Look after your kidneys

The kidneys and the bladder are the body’s filtration system. It is very important to flush your system through and use Liquid Fast Days at New Moon or Waning Moon. If you want to strengthen your kidneys and bladder, make tea from one of the herbs mentioned below. You can also use a mixture of some or all. This tea you can sip throughout the morning/day (best to carry it in an insulated thermos flask). You can even add a dash of fresh lemon juice. 

Herbs for this region 
  • Dandelion tea.
  • Marshmallow root.
  • Juniper.
  • Nettles.
  • Parsley.

Detox Tea Mixture: Mix some fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds, add pieces of fresh ginger and some lemon juice, and add some fresh turmeric root. Add to a teapot and add hot water, leave to cool, and sip throughout the day/morning.
During hot weather add a glass of coconut water to your daily routine. It is one of the best ways to hydrate your body.
In general, make sure to drink enough water or herbal teas to stay well hydrated. This is the best way to keep your kidneys and bladder in good shape.

Epsom salt bath 

 Bathing in Epsom salts or having a sauna/steam bath is good to get rid of toxins.

A healthy body relies on the right ph balance. A normal blood pH level is 7.35 to 7.45 on a scale of 0 to 14, where 0 is the most acidic and 14 is the most alkaline. If the lungs or kidneys are malfunctioning, your blood’s ph level can become imbalanced.

Eat more alkaline food 

Many people are slightly too acidic.  Sugar, meat, fish, dairy products, flour, alcohol, tea, and coffee are all acid-forming products.

You need to eat more alkaline food in the form of dark leafy vegetables like spinach, avocados, miso products, tomatoes, almonds, garlic, onions, and parsley. The one food that is the most alkaline is also very counterintuitive. Did you know that lemons are actually the most alkaline food there is?  All other citrus fruits like grapefruit, oranges, limes, and tangerines are actually acidic.  Lemons are the only alkaline citrus fruit! This is the reason why lemons are used for cleaning and sprinkling some lemon juice on a breaded chicken, will help to alkalize it and easier to digest.
One of the easiest and most pleasant ways to help balance your body’s ph level is to drink Lemon Water.
