How To Easily Stock Your Pantry to Ensure Optimal Health and Natural Weight Loss

How To Easily Stock Your Pantry to Ensure Optimal Health and Natural Weight Loss:


The best way to ensure you eat healthy meals starts with a well stocked healthy pantry. Why? Because when you get hungry, the first thing that you will do is go for the kitchen cupboards to fill up your hungry body. Once you have only healthy food options to choose from, you will inevitably make healthier food choices and maintain your health and weight much more easily.

We will never get over our hunger through will-power because there is no will strong enough to overcome the survival mechanism. Once we get hungry , the survival mechanism kicks in and we start looking for food. When our pantry is well stocked with healthy foods, these are the foods that we will choose from, because when we are feeling hunger, we will not have the mental strength to wait for any food delivery or to go shopping. We will eat whatever is available and can be consumed in theist amount of time. Only the foods that we have closest to us and are the fastest foods to prepare will be eaten.

So now that we know the importance of a healthy pantry, let’s examine what makes up a healthy pantry.


The foundation of a healthy pantry is to first of all have foods that are in their closest to natural form as possible, and that means that for packed foods, you need to start reading the label. Now what do I mean by reading the label? I mean looking at the ingredients, and not looking at the calorie content, protein content or carbohydrate or sugar content. These are not interesting for lasting health and natural weight loss. Really Not Important! The only thing that is important are the ingredients.

Check out the label and purchase foods with as few ingredients as possible. For example, if you are out buying bread, choose bread with no more than 4 ingredients (the grain, water, salt and yeast). Yes, there is such a thing. Most breads purchased today have over 15 and some over 20 ingredients. The other ingredients include flavour enhancers, flour enhancers, emulsifiers, stabilisers, gelling agents and thickeners and all sorts of E numbers that are food additives considered to be safe and officially approved for use in food.

Having food available in your pantry with as few E numbers as possible is your best bet. Some food additives are known to be connected with hyperactivity or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The additives connected with these conditions are mostly food colourings such as:

  • Tartrazine (E102)
  • Quinoline Yellow (E104)
  • Sunset Yellow (E110)
  • Carmoisine (E122)
  • Ponceau 4R (E124)
  • Allura Red (E129)

Although other additives have also been shown to have connection with these and other disorders.

Some E number advocates say that these additives are good for us because they help prevent the spread of disease, for example preservatives, from the E200 group that help prevent diseases such as botulism, which can cause blurred vision, paralysis and death within 24 hours. However, these are added to foods to preserve them in the long run and to give them a longer shelf life. This is not what you want to be consuming in the first place. Natural foods are foods closest to nature, and nature intended us to eat them when they are ripe and ready to eat and not to have them on a shelf waiting to be bought and consumed a few months later.

Salt was also used as a preservative historically, especially to preserve meat because it absorbs water from the food that bacteria needs in order to thrive. Now there are a range of nitrates that also have the same effect but have been shown to cause us diseases including cancer.

Choosing fresh foods are your best bet, however, sometimes we need to stock up for the future. The best bet is to choose the right foods that have 1-2 ingredients and cook, sprout, soak or peel them when you would like to eat them.

So what are the right foods?

Now this may seem easy, we just go to the health food store and stock up, but actually, for most of us  it is not.

Today there is so much confusion as to what healthy foods are and on the other hand the statistics show that 7 out of 10 people will die os chronic diseases, 50% of the population is taking medications on a daily basis and almost 2 billion people in the world are overweight. If we take out from the equation people who are starving, that makes 30% of the population.

Since diet forms the foundation of health, through these statistics we see that most people do not know what to eat for health, and to be honest I also did not know what to eat for health even though I was holding three university degrees in the health field including a BSc in Biochemistry and Nutrition, a PgC in Immunology and an MSc in Medical Science.

With all the information available that changes regularly according to who is funding for the research, you can never really get the full picture.

Following my own issues with and weight and later suffering from cancer, I decided to research the ideal diet for humans myself. I left my business that had allowed me financial security and funded my two year research myself. This way I could assure myself that there would be no biased information. After 2 years I understood the healthiest diet for humans.

By examining modern human anatomy and physiology, I found that the foods early humans consumed when they left the rainforests of Africa, for the savanna grasslands, during the period that took place between 2 million years ago – 11,000 years ago (when the agricultural age began) is what we should be consuming today for health and longevity. In my book titled: “The Guerrilla Diet and Lifestyle Program”, I go into the shocking and very interesting facts about human evolution and the best diet to support our health and natural weight loss.
