What is Somersizing?

Ready to  get serious about your eating habits?
Start Somersizing!

In her book Get Skinny on Fabulous Food, Suzanne Somers teaches you to eat real food in a way that reprograms your metabolism to burn fat and give you constant source of energy. Get started with level one for weight loss by eliminating some of the foods that wreak havoc on your system -- sugars, white flour, carrots, bananas and potatoes - to name a few. Then eat normal everyday foods in combinations that aid digestion and weight control.

Here are the four Somersized Food Groups:

Pro/Fats: Includes proteins like meat, poultry, fish and eggs, and fats in their natural state like oil, butter, cream and cheese.

Veggies: Includes a host of low-starch, fresh vegetables, from artichokes to peppers to zucchini and more.

Carbos: Includes whole-grain pastas, cereals, bread, beans and nonfat dairy products.

Fruit: Includes a huge variety of fresh fruit, from apples to peaches to tangerines and more.

FOODS TO ELIMINATE (Funky Foods):

Includes sugars, highly starchy foods, caffeine and alcohol.

Sugars
White sugar
Brown sugar
Raw Sugar
Corn Syrup
Sucrose
Fructose
Molasses
Honey
Maple syrup
Beets
Carrots
Caffeine and Alcohol
Coffee
Caffeinated teas
Caffeinated sodas
Cocoa
Beer
Hard alcohol
Wine

Starches
White flour
White rice
Corn
Potatoes
Sweet potatoes
Parsnips

Butternut Squash
Bananas

Here are the basic guidelines to Level one (the weight loss portion of the program)

  1. Eliminate all FUNKY FOODS
  2. Eat FRUIT alone, on an empty stomach
  3. Eat PRO/FATS with VEGGIES
  4. Eat CARBOS with VEGGIES
  5. Keep PRO/FATS separate from CARBOS
  6. Wait three hours between meals if switching from a PRO/FATS meal to a CARBOS meal, or vice versa
  7. DO not skip meals. Eat at least three meals a day, and eat until you feel satisfied and comfortably full.

Here is a recipe book in pdf format (you may need to download ADOBE Acrobat Reader 4.0 to read the file) that I compiled from recipes that are available on the internet (just not in this format).
Most are level 1 - but does include some level 2 as well.  Bon Apetit!

If you are interested in a compact, booklet size version of the recipe booklets, send me an e-mail at the link below (please don't inquire through the guestbook) and I will let you know how to get a copy.
