Traditional Foods or a Tummy Tuck?
Since I never have any plans to go into surgery for a tummy tuck, I love the idea that eating traditional foods could help flatten my belly! And that is exactly what the magazine article claimed. It all boils down to getting a certain nutrient into our diet that the American diet is quite deficient.
So what is the elusive nutrient? Lecithin! And guess where your best source of lecithin is found? Organ meats and egg yolks. These are two foods that we have been told for a long time to avoid.
Lecithin Beats a Tummy Tuck!
According to the article, lecithin allows our cells to become more fluid and strong at the same time. This nutrient reenergizes our sluggish cells to purge their fat and to allow in—and hold on to—nutrients that help us lose weight and keep us slim.
So if we want to avoid having to undergo an actual tummy tuck, we need to incorporate more lecithin-rich foods into our diets. It’s certainly easy enough to start enjoying eggs again…but organ meats? Don’t worry. I have years of experience cooking traditional foods, and I’ll show you how to incorporate these foods into your diet, starting with liver!
Easy Way to Include Liver into Your Diet
If you are new to eating liver, you may quickly want to turn your nose up to it. But don’t! Remember that this is going to be your best friend if you want to lose belly fat and avoid getting a tummy tuck!
You can prepare liver in such a delicious way that you might even find that you are craving it again after your first dish. So be sure to check out my fried beef liver recipe video that kids will love. And I think we all know that if kids like this recipe, any adult would love it too!

Also, be sure to prepare some fermented ketchup for dipping your liver nuggets. Fermented foods are wonderful for feeding the good bacteria in our guts that further works to help us lose weight, stay slim, and have a natural tummy tuck!
What Are Traditional Foods?
Making the transition from eating processed foods that make us fat to eating traditional foods that help us slim, can, at first, seem like a daunting task. But it’s much easier than you think. To get started, watch the videos below where I review what traditional foods are and fill you in on a great cookbook, Nourishing Traditions, that will help you prepare delicious meals of traditional foods that you’ll love.
Nutrient-Dense Fish Recipes
For nutrient-dense foods that help us slim down, look at making easy meals using budget-friendly canned fish. Canned salmon and sardines are very affordable, and both are quite rich in Omega-3 nutrients that help to speed up our sluggish metabolisms.

When it comes to diets, the Keto diet definitely fits the bill of incorporating lots of traditional foods into their meal plans. Watch the following videos to learn how to make Keto and Keto-friendly recipes.
