For the Board - Walt's protocol

Posted by M.Bliss [4.1623] on June 25, 2006 at 02:39:34:

There was a question about people who follow the 3LS that Walt's board is all about.
so I am curious about something:

How many ofyou folks who post regularly here, practise walts protocol of Skilled relaxation, perfect whole foods diet, and exercise???? Not just one part of the 3 legged stool, but all THREE.
I am asking how many do this EVERYDAY consistently over a long period of time. Not just for a month or two.

I will start with me:

Skilled Relaxation = sometimes
PWFD = No (I just follow the basics of the diet)
exercise = rarely

PWFD - Yes, constantly working on it. ;o)
exercise - Yes - 3 times a week
SR - a work in progress.......not enough

Hi Miss Bliss,

SR - 5 years, started with three 30-minute sessions a day. In the last two years, usually one 15-minute a day. Sometimes more, sometimes less depending on how busy my schedule is.

PWFD - 5 years, was 100% perfect for 3 years, goofed off a bit (99% perfect) for a year or so, now perfect again

Exercise - 5 years, started with walking 10 minutes and rebounding 15 minutes. My exercise program keeps evolving. Right now it's 20 minutes of gentle dance-aerobics every day with an occasional missed day.

It's good stuff!

Best wishes,
Jan

Hi Jan,

I'm wondering if that 1% of goofing off the PWFD had a noticeable effect, and if so was it only when and shortly after eating the non-perfect food you noticed something or did it last?

SR= Sometimes, but not very often at all
PWFD= Never but I do follow a WFD most of the time
Exercise= Sometimes, maybe once a week

For me it's hard b/c of my 3 young kids. Mostly my youngest. Once they are a bit older I fully intend on doing all three EVERY day. Is that a lame excuse?

Hi Lissa,

I was also trying to eat foods I was allergic to, with the hopes that I had overcome the food allergies. Nope, I didn't.

I can feel allright with some straying from the diet, but I have concluded that it would be best for me to stay with the perfect diet. I'll make limited exceptions if I'm out somewhere and there is nothing else to eat. Yesterday I was at a trade show and the food was all terrible. No way for that kind of stuff.

One of my main weaknesses is my digestive tract. So this is why I think it would be best for me to be meticulous. I had a digestive flareup this year and as soon as I started eating better, I felt much better. I discovered that I had to give up eating tomato sauces (fresh tomatoes okay) and liver sausage. It's a small loss compared to how much better I feel.

It might be different for others, but since this is my area of weakness, I think I need to be very careful here.

Best wishes,
Jan

I don't agree with the 3L the way it's promoted here actually - and feel the board is more about promotions rather than education but...- maybe the 3L isn't the answer (possible) and everyone needs to make their own program.
*This isn't to say that I don't appreciate other's opinions and ideals, I'm just being open minded and not following a herd/mass mentality that it's "walts way or the highway" you know? I think he would appreciate or respect that also - not sure but I hope so.

1)I meditate daily, maybe miss 2 days out of the month
eat mostly whole foods, or at least keep "my" problem foods at bay.

2) Exercise daily (maybe miss 2 days out of the month)

3)I do journaling weekly

4) dedicate time to letting go of frustration issues (my hot buttons)

5) dedicate time daily for charitable living - be it giving what I feel is good advice, or giving financially to a charity, or spending time volunteering.

6) Learning to be myself without being harsh. Learning that sometimes people see me as harsh also, because they are overly sensitive and it's not my issue but theirs. Being happy in my own skin and confident with my decisions. After all if I make a decision I should feel good about it and not second guess myself as then, it's a process of elimination rather than a controlled decision.

7) working on being up front and not worrying that I need to filter my thoughts just because they may not be popular thoughts.

So - my "3L" as promoted here is a lot more entailed to me, and works for me. So in all - eating right, exercising and getting enough rest (which is essentially the foundation of 3LS) is a bigger picture - and though easy to remember as 3L, isn't always proactive unless you dig deeper.

SR = Twice a day but probably don't actually relax enough during the SR
PWFD = Working on Liberal but making a lot of mistakes with recipes ie. using sugar or having wrong type of stone ground flour available for recipe
Exercise = try for twice a day ends up being once about 1/2 the time

Thanks for your question. I knew where I fell short on the last two but your question alerted me to the fact that I'm doing the SR kind of halfway.

You had to give up liver sausage...and wanted to go on living??! ; )

Have you tried making your own tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes? Just wondering.

:o) Hi Sounder,

It's true, I still want to go on living, even without the liver sausage. It's one of the few treats I was holding onto after having given up wheat, (gluten foods including oats, rye, barley), soy, dairy (especially cheese), eggs, sugar, chocolate, all fruit, beans, and alcohol.

But gee, I'm glad I gave up the liver sausage. I feel better. :o)

I haven't tried making tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes. Good idea. One more thing to try. :o) Thanks for the suggestion.

Best wishes,
Jan

Hi Micheleguru,

The 3LS is really flexible and adaptable to people's health needs and interests... the simple structure is just to get people started with the program. Then they can adapt it so it works for them. Health is so individual.

Your program sounds great!

Best wishes,
Jan

Skilled Relaxation..occasionaly
PWFD.. I eat the same foods I've eaten all my life. Meat, potatoes, salads, veggies, grains, some fried foods, occasional pizza, and pastries. I have had about 20 colds in my 52 years, never hospitalized except to have 2 babies, extremely healthy pregnancies, influenza 4 times in my life, a few sore throats, vomited last when I was 8, true diarrhea 3 times in my life. My parents are pretty much the same. I am blessed with a very healthy immune system, not going to change the wait I eat and live now, I must be doing something right.
Exercise..Walking almost everyday and using my Total Gym 3 times a week.

I had already been exercising (walking) daily and eating a mostly whole foods diet, both for about 2 years, when I found this board. A couple of months after I found the BB, I added SR and made quite a few diet changes. I've taken a hiatus of a few weeks to a couple of months from SR or diet now and then, but keep coming back to the 3LS. So overall, I've been doing the 3LS together nearly as long as I've been here, which is 5-6 years now.

I'm the same, Nutmeg. I had been eating a PWFD for a few years prior to coming to this site, and also exercising. I came to this site in 2003, and added in SR twice daily about 2 years ago. I'm pretty religeous about the 3LS.

Skilled Relaxation: Wed-Sunday, 2x a day, Mon & Tues 1 x (time
constraints prevent fitting in that second session, but on Monday it is
because of a meditation class, so who knows if I'm achieving SR a
second time and Tuesday, no time for lunch session because deposit
paycheck.)

Exercise: On average, exceed 3LS standards. At least 5 days a week,
30 minutes on elliptical and circuit weight training.

Whole Foods: Not quite perfect, but nearly so every day (example of
not perfect, Ezekiel bread) and maybe twice a month a treat or
liberalized meal (eat out). Do the best I can under those
circumstances or when I am travelling.

Thanks, Happygal.

You are the best examplefor wellness here on the board. You never display negativity or criticism/judgement of other posters. Never hurt people with your words.I guess youcome from a place of wanting to help and heal in a very positive way, just like walt.

I did the PWFD for six months and I remember when i use to set my alarm for 6am to do my aerobics before work,and also use to practise my SR everyday. I got healthy very quick, but now have kind of slackened off once I got there.
I have found that SR made the biggest difference for me, but when I combined all three was a real boost to my health.

P.S. Aren't you glad you foudn this board! ;)

You are so right
Jan is so sweet and kind and positive to everyone here.
She worked so hard on the new book to pass on to us terrific information to help us heal more and more.
She and Walt are rare, caring , generous people with their time, information and hearts.
The day I was told x-rays showed bone-on-bone in my knees, neck and back I was so fit and healthy, trim, looked and felt great but I had no idea what wear and tear did over the years.

I had to learn pretty fast to take my health to a higher level and I have been very strict.
I exercise daily, do pilates, weights, walk, stretch.
Eat better and better raw, fresh, whole foods, organic and make smoothies packed with protein, oils, green food to start and finish the day , then we do fresh vegetable juicing. If I cheat I pay for it.
SR. I am so relaxed now and more and more sleep better, always feel calm and clean inside and out.

Shape helped me, Steve, Walt people who knew what to do.

Terrific place in a time when doctors charge big bucks are too busy to care.
Thanks Walt and Jan........

lovebird
