Color Coding Weight Loss, Making Losing Excess Pounds Easier

Mystic magic for weight loss? 

Nah - we just wanted to make weight loss easier for the average Diet Joe and Joe-ette when it comes to snack time.

Our Diet Crystals line up with emotions that are familiar to all of us and offer suggestions that fulfill those secret appetizing desires. For food, that is....

The next time you're feeling happy, sad, blue, etc. - look for snacks that match the color of your mood.  

Butterfly Blue Crystals for Mood Shifting  

A list of feel-good foods when you're feeling blue: Blueberries, Purple Plums, Blue Jelly Beans, Purple Grapes.

Do keep in mind that there are different levels of blue when it comes to our moods. If you are depressed about one particular thing in life - such as frustrated over your weight, that's one thing. Clinical depression requires the assistance of a qualified professional to overcome. If you feel overwhelmed and can't seem to get out of bed, then it's time to call your doctor.

Snow White Crystals Equals Desserts

Sweets for Diet Angels: Angel food  or Sponge Cake, Toasted Marshmallows, or Rice Krispy Treats.

If you haven't tried the jumbo camping size marshmallows then you are in for a special treat. We have a gas powered stove and it's great for roasting them (over an open fire, even) - no matter what time of the year. We could pitch a tent in the kitchen and never even miss all the ants and bugs.


Red Hot Crystals for Mood Angry

Feeling angry, frustrated or upset? Try these sweet treats to cool your Diet Jets: Red Hots, Apple, Red Plums, Red Pears, Cherries, Dried Cranberries, Raspberries, or Strawberries.

Red is the color most associated with anger - unless someone is really furious. Then we revert to white anger because there is nothing like a batch of sweetness to set the mood upright.

Mystic Black Crystals

When you're feeling a little mischievous, try these treats: Black Plums, Blackberries, Licorice Whips, Raisins, or Currants. As to licorice, only a few years ago there was an additive in some types of licorice which impacted blood pressure negatively. These days, that ingredient has become a blast from the past.

Passion Pink Crystals

You animal you! Dive in to these delectable, passionate treats: Passion Fruit, Pinkish Melon, Prickly Pear Fruit, and Pink Grapefruit. And if you are feeling thirsty, how about a glass of cool cherry lemonade? That's the spirit!

Green Earth Crystals

Happy, are we? Let's celebrate with these green earth goodies: Watermelon, Kiwi, Pears, Honeydew Melon, and Green Grapes. Green tends to represent growth which can be either a good or bad thing. When the size of our body is growing outward, that's not a good thing. But when we're on the right path to better fitness, we're growing the right direction as to our state of health - and that's a very good thing!

Golden Yellow Crystals

Feeling a little unsure of yourself? Bolster self-confidence with these sweet treats: Banana, Pear, Golden Apples, Lemonade, Golden Raisins, and Pineapple. Ever since I was a little girl, yellow has always been my favorite color. You too probably have one color that you like more than another. These tend to reflect our inner moods but not totally. I love the color black also - but that doesn't mean that an evil mood is over the horizon. When I'm feeling dark - it's time to get cozy in a dim room and watch something fun - like a comedy. Soon, that yellow mood reappears.

Brown Box Crystals

Need to energize? Try these treats: Cantaloupe, Coconuts, Nuts, Kiwi, Dates, or Figs. All of these foods are rich in dietary fiber and when combined with adequate water for the day they can assist in battling digestive issues, particularly a stalled bowel.

Pumpkin Orange Crystals

For festive occasions: Apricots, Peach, Pumpkin, Kumquats, Guava, Mango, Nectarine, Oranges, Papaya, or Tangerines.
