Thinking Health – How does this impact you?
How does thinking health impact you on a day to day basis? This is something I have been wondering for some time. You see I hear so many people say “I can’t stop eating…?” It doesn’t really matter what ….. is, it only matters that this is how they are thinking! Do you realize that? If you think that you can not stop eating sugar for example, correct! If you think that you can not stop eating gluten, again correct. If you think you are not able to exercise again correct. The way you do one thing is how you do everything and your health/fitness life is based upon if you are thinking health or not. Do you know I hear from individuals who have been advised by their doctor to stop eating gluten and they must change how they eat or they will get very sick in the near future if they are not ill already. Yet they will not make the changes necessary to feel better. Why do you think this is? Most people would rather die than change. Now you may feel that is a sharp statement. Yet is it not. You see to change the way one eat’s may mean they have to change how they live socially. Do you know that can be very hard? I do! It is very difficult not to be able to go out to certain places, or be the one to say no to certain restaurants or homes for dinner because the food will make you sick. Yet the thinking health will make all of decisions so much easier. I heard once that many individuals who had heart attacks have a second because it is so difficult to change their lifestyle. What can you do to create a thinking health mindset?
- Ask yourself – is what I am about to eat going to do my body good or will I feel terrible after I eat it? And if you don’t know the answer to this question when you eat, it is time to begin to start noticing. How do you feel? Energized, tired, bloated, lethargic. Because most don’t pay attention to these details when they eat. Not sure if the TV commercials are blinding you however you should not feel bad after eating food that is good for you.
- For many drink a glass of water – clean, clear, colorless, odorless water and wait 20 minutes. This will help because most people don’t know the difference between being hungry or thirsty when in fact they are thirsty.
- Make the choice to eat only REAL FOOD in your day -” There are 51 nutrients that have to be in any food in order to satisfy the appestat, the part of your brain that basically tells you to stop eating. So, what they do with processed foods is they selectively remove nutrients and also add other nutrients.For example, salt stimulates hydrochloric acid in your stomach. If you eat salty potato chips it encourages the release of hydrochloric acid. If you have a bunch of hydrochloric acid and a handful of potato chips in there, it makes you hungry as hell because if you don’t eat something to neutralize the acid it can damage your own stomach and give you an ulcer.So the stomach sends a message to the brain: “Go find something to eat!” But that’s usually interpreted as “Keep eating more chips.” So you eat the whole bag of chips or box of cookies trying to neutralize the acid.At the same time, they use stimulants like sodium chloride to trigger the digestive process along with artificial scents to make you hungry. Then they extract key fats and key nutrients so that your appestat says, “Wait a minute, you’ve eaten all these chips but there’s no nutrition in there.” – Source
