Does the food you eat support your health and well-being? Or not so much? Do you treat your body as a sacred temple or…not really? They say that we are what we eat. We all know they are right, aren’t they?
In this article I’m not going to talk about what food you should or shouldn’t eat, it’s not my field of expertise. If you need to learn more about which food is right for you and which is not, I included the contact info of my friend and colleague Karen Roth – Holistic Nutritionist, at the end of this article. You can subscribe to her newsletter and enjoy valuable nutritional information.
What I am going to talk about are your habits around the food you put into your body. You may already know what you should or shouldn’t eat. You also know for the most part, which food is nourishing you and contributing to your health and which ones are doing the opposite.
For example, I’m sure you are very well aware that refined sugar is NOT good for you. It may give you temporary pleasure, but in the long run, it’s taking you down.
So I’m not saying never to have sugar. You can have it, though I know some people that barely consume processed sugar. Yet, we all can use a sweet bite of something if it’s once in a while and in small quantities. Personally I eat sweets now and again, myself.
My mom taught me to do everything in moderation. That’s one thing I actually did embrace…
Sugar Suppresses The Immune System Up To 5-6 Hours, Lowering The Body’s Ability To Fight Off Infection.
Yes, every time we eat sugar it’s not only doing that but also promotes inflammation in the body, leads to insulin resistance, it can lead to weight gain, it contributes to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, it appears to act like fertilizer for cancer cells, and there is so much more, but I think these few are enough.
So if that’s the case, if there is a science behind it, you know sugar is not good for you, yet you still do it. Is it any surprise why you might be having challenges to heal?
Before you seek expensive treatments or experts that might help you resolve your ailments, physical or emotional pain, either minor or acute, first start at home, in your physical environment– both the external and internal ones.
So If We Are What We Eat, What Are We?
Here is the secret behind “knowing what to eat.” Too much emphasis is placed on diet vs. on the habit of eating. We are creatures of habit. It doesn’t matter how much knowledge we have or even our awareness, although both are a great start, it all comes down to implementing what we know.
I give myself permission to have one dark organic piece of chocolate a day. It is so dark and rich that I really cannot have more than two pieces. I don’t keep milk chocolate at home because I can eat too much of this.
When my husband and I dine out, once in a while we’ll get a dessert. Not every time. And sometimes we’ll ask not to serve us bread. It all depends upon when we last had a dessert. I love the “everything in moderation” mind-set. I just feel that I’m treating my body well. This is the only one I have, I can’t replace it, so I need to take care of it.
We Can Either Feed Our Body To Support Our Short and Long-Term Health or Do The Opposite.
It’s Our Free Choice. We ONLY Need To Change Some Habits.
So if one of your goals is to not have migraines, or free yourself from allergies, or become more focus and less worried or anxious, then take an honest look at what you are eating, including your eating habits. It’s one thing to know what to eat and a whole other thing to implement what you know. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
Last year I was working with a client that just found out that she was diabetic. By her doctor’s order she needed to get off sugars ASAP. The hardest thing for her was to let go of the chocolate and the ice cream.
How About Having A Strong Attraction To Carrots Instead Of Ice Cream? A True Story.
So in one session we helped her with a wonderful NLP (neuro linguistic programming) technique to desire carrots (it was her choice of replacement) instead of chocolate and the ice cream. Immediately after she got up from the session all she could think of was carrots. She grew them in her yard so she was excited to get some.
As we continued to help her get on track with her health she reported that she had no desire to have chocolate. In the past, her kids knew that they were not to touch mommy’s favorite chocolate, so no one touched it. Now they ask if they can have it and their Mommy says “sure.” She told me that they all look at one another as if to say: ‘what happened to her?” and she just smiles and enjoys her new habit.
How fun is that?
It is possible to develop a habit that can and will support your health.
