Eating a Healthy Diet is a Choice

Eating a healthy diet is a choice that we make on a daily basis. The way we make that choice is based on our habits and our beliefs.

Our habits can lead us to success or failure. Since we do them automatically, we do not tend to verify if they continue to serve us well. So taking the time to question why we are engaging certain habits can mean the difference between accomplishing goals or stagnating in life.

What Causes Food Addiction?

What causes food addiction? Short answer is SUGAR. If you are still with me, the thing that I want everyone to think about is that if you do not understand food and how food interacts in the body, you will remain powerless to change your life.

This book by Mark Hyman, MD: https://amzn.to/2SGMErU really helped me to understand the process of getting food to our plates and the hidden agenda of food manufacturers and how that affects the quality of the food we eat.

It is important to focus on eating quality food that will fuel your body while allowing you to feel healthy. In order to accomplish that, you need to be in control of what you are eating. Food addiction eliminates your ability to be in control. What’s scary, most people do not know that they are addicted.

The food industry has added sugar to so many foods that do not need it and then most of our staple meals are centered around grains. Grains are sugars.

Being healthy today takes an effort because you need to actively reject many foods that are called healthy but are really sugar masquerading as nutritious meals. Heart healthy cereals, fortified milk, genetically engineered fruit, are all ways that we eat extra carbohydrates that are harming our bodies and leading us down the road to diabetes.

If you want to improve your health, you first need to understand that carbohydrates are not necessary. By decreasing the amount that you eat, you can greatly improve your health and live a happier life.

I work on being happy everyday because happiness is a journey. It would be my pleasure to help you work on being happy, one video at a time.

Thank you for watching!

Why All the Fuss About Time Restricted Eating, IF, & OMAD

Let’s begin with the obvious. No one can force you to fast. If you want to eat, eat. That being said, I find it crazy how many arguments there are online about fasting.

First of all, fasting is a period of time when you are not eating. What is comical about this is, if you consider that a great majority of people often eat when they are not even hungry, how can we then try to put a time frame on what would be fasting?

There’s No Such Thing as Easy Weight Loss

I’m saying it right from the start. Stop looking for short cuts. You will only set yourself up for failure. Weight loss is a process of allowing your body to use appropriate fuels to power itself while also healing any damage from the inappropriate fuel sources you were previously using. Believing that you can heal your body in a few weeks after years of damage is unrealistic.

Paradox of Weight Loss and Ketogenic Lifestyle

What is the paradox of weight loss and how does the ketogenic lifestyle help us to understand it? Put simply, we have all the information that we need to be at a healthy weight. It has been explained to us from time we began elementary school. Yet, more and more adults are over weight.

The reason, the information that we’ve been given to manage our weight is incorrect. That’s right, it is information that does not correctly explain what causes weight fluctuation and therefore the average person cannot use the information to correctly modify their weight.

Why We Can’t Trust Ourselves with Food

Ever find yourself in front of an empty extra large bag of chips and think to yourself “I only meant to have a few”? That’s what happens when we allow ourselves to eat food without any restrictions. We can’t trust ourselves with food. Mostly because we were never taught to manage our food intake.

You see, when we are hungry, we seek carbohydrate heavy foods. This is simply because carby foods taste better. Now carby fatty foods taste the best. But we have been taught that fat is bad and should be avoided lest we
