WHY THE WEIGHT LOSS STRUGGLE IS A TRILLION DOLLAR LIE (PART1) Weight loss is hard…isn’t that what we all believe? What if it were NOT really true? What if the struggle of weight loss was just one more lie invented by a multi-billion dollar diet and weight loss industry? Or could it be possible that the real culprit of the weight loss lie is perpetuated by the trillion dollar processed food industry that is in line to gain from the obesity epidemic? After all, price can only increase so much…people can only eat so much…or can they? Is it possible that we were fooled to believe that it was okay for our bodies to become part of a science experiment for the processed food industry? I think so. The truth is processed foods are designed to be addictive. In essence, processed foods are stripped of their natural, whole food nutrition and reconstituted with chemicals and additives. Ingredients are added that are addictive, like sugar, high fructose corn syrup and MSG. So while you think you have no willpower because “you can’t eat just one”chip, you are actually falling into a premeditated trap designed by the manufactured food industry. Emotional Hunger vs. Physical Hunger: The mind and body cannot be separated. What affects your body, affects your mind and what affects your mind, affects your body. The cycle of cravings can start in your body if: 1. You are eating foods that have addictive substances. 2. You are eating foods that you are allergic or sensitive to. 3. You have an inner ecosystem imbalance, like a fungal infection (candida), viral infection or bacterial infection. 4. You went on crash diets and deprived your body of the adequate amount of calories. 5. You are eating processed foods, which are low in essential nutrients, so your body continues to be hungry no matter how much you eat. The cycle of cravings can start in your mind if: 6. You are “all work and no play”and you feel you are missing the sweetness in your life. 7. You felt threatened as a child (for example, some type of abuse or sexual abuse) and began to feel that “getting big”would protect you from trauma. 8. You experienced a deprivation of food from financial circumstances or extreme dieting that led to constant thoughts about food. 9. You are experiencing the need to distract yourself from feelings that you don’t want to have (‘stuffing your thoughts”). 10. You are depressed and food helps to boost your mood. If you are experiencing any of these physical or emotional situations, there is no amount of “willpower’that can carry you through the cravings. They continue to come back because your mind and body are stuck in a cycle. Carib Wellness solutions for easy, natural weight loss: The Eden Life Plan is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. If you have seen Nurse Fellows” food prep demonstrations or attended any of her trainings at Eden Life Rejuvenation Centre, you quickly realize that we believe in creating a lifestyle that supports physical and emotional health. Food, just like your thoughts, is the energy that makes us feel good or feel bad in mind and body. Just imagine the last time you ate something that didn’t agree with you. How did you feel? Or the last time you were thinking negative thoughts. Both can drain your energy and vitality fast. The thing is, in order to achieve natural weight-loss, it’s not about cutting calories while eating the same low energy, low nutrient foods. Most of obesity is simply your body starving for real, nutritious food. If you feel you don’t eat much, but still gain weight, your body is likely starved for nutrients. Carib Welness and the Eden Life Plan are about returning real, whole food nutrients to your body. But it doesn’t stop there. Carib Wellness goes further by helping your digestive tract heal so that you can digest and assimilate those needed nutrients. What happens is that your body starts to feel better…and since mind and body are linked, YOU start to feel better. For some, the hardest part about The Plan is moving away from the hold that the trillion-dollar processed food industry has on us all. The commercials, the ads, the packaging and the food itself are all designed to keep you hooked. If you were to give yourself just five days to step out of the clutches of processed foods, your body would actually move away from the cycle of cravings. Next weeks article will guide you how to do it. Book an appointment at Carib Wellness so we can help you lose weight naturally and permanently.
