Use Hulled Hemp Seeds (Hemp Hearts™) to Promote Weight Loss
How I Lost Half My Body Weight!
An athlete all my life, at age 36 after a training injury my weight started to creep up the scale. I was alarmed. When it went past the 200 pound mark I was shocked. It kept going up and I stopped getting on the scale after 230.
I spent three years like that, disgusted with myself and embarrassed to be seen in public. Friends did not recognize me. Those that did couldn't hide the shock that registered on their faces.
Lucky for me I was living in Canada at the time and Hemp Hearts™ (a trade name for hulled hemp seeds) were readily available as was the knowledge on how to use them to lose weight. I began drinking hemp seed smoothies and within 2 weeks I had already lost 10 pounds. The weight continued to fall off, without exercise, for four months (a total between 50-60 pounds at that point) and then I supplemented exercise for more weight loss.
Next I'm going to share the 'magic' formula for the smoothie that made my weight loss happen!
The photo above shows everything you need to make your hemp smoothie. The recipe is as follows. Blend all of these ingredients on high setting in your blender:
- 1/2 cup yogurt or kefir, vanilla, flavored or plain your choice
- 1/2 - 1 banana (not shown in photo but crucial!)
- 1/2 cup or so frozen fruit (blueberries, peaches, blackberries or my personal favorite: mangoes!)
- 1/2 cup liquid of your choice (milk, juice, rice milk etc.)
- last but not least... 1/3 cup hulled hemp seeds
To answer the burning question will it get me high? No, sorry, hulled hemp seeds are non viable and do not contain THC (the chemical in marijuana that produces the 'high'). Hemp seeds are from the cannabis plant, but there are many more uses for it than the one the DEA is interested in.
The reason that this works so well for weight loss is that hemp seeds are a 'perfect food' with the perfect balance of protein, carbohydrate and fat. My theory is that the body changes it's preference from fatty and unhealthy foods to the hemp heart™ smoothie.
To begin the 'diet' have the smoothie first thing in the morning and then eat regularly the rest of the day, following what your hunger dictates for you to eat. Gradually over a two week period, in my experience, I adapted to a grazing diet and other than the smoothie only had one other meal. Others I have told about it had a similar experience.
Best of luck with it and I'll answer any questions in the comments!
