“How do I ramp up my metabolism?”
“How do I make my immune system strong?”
“How do I get a flat stomach?”
“How can I have more energy?”
(BTW, that’s Shelby and I on Marco Island a couple of weeks ago )
These questions are expressed from the perspective that if we could take a special supplement, cut a bunch of calories, walk a certain amount of steps, or find the right exercise, the things we hate about ourselves would go away and we’d be golden.
Really though, what we need to do is become normal. God made our bodies spectacular; we just need to eat the right foods, think the right thoughts, sleep, and move often, to keep it so.
It’s not rocket science, but it’s tricky, because we’ve been inundated with terribly bad advice on diet and health for several decades now.
All those words of wisdom from our doctors/government/pharma, along with commercials and advertising, have us sicker, fatter, and more depressed than ever.
How to pull yourself away from 40 years of being told you need to count calories, shun fat, and take pills to feel good?
Educate Yourself! We’re a chemistry set, not a math equation. Work with your chemistry, and you become NORMAL (lean and healthy). Here’s some wisdom:
Read here to learn how excessive Stress Hormones mess up your gut, your immune system, your sex hormones, your brain, and cause heart disease and weight gain. (Manage Your Stress = Think About What You’re Thinking About).
Read here about studies showing that Rosemary is effective against estrogen dominant breast cancer, and here to learn about studies showing how much more effective Turmeric can be than radiation and chemo, with none of the side effects. ( Eat medicine foods daily!)
Read here to learn why award-winning cardiologist, Dr. Assem Malhotra, says we need to watch our sugar instead of fat when it comes to heart disease and weight. (It’s not about the calories.)
Read here to learn how a lack of iodine can cause cancer and disease in many parts of our body.
Please, read, invest your time in learning about how your body works and what it wants. None of us are “low in medicine”; but we’re often full of crappy food, crappy thoughts, and lack of movement. That’s all poison to the body, and your body will respond accordingly.
Eat Real Whole Foods, control your thoughts/manage your stress, move a LOT, get regular sleep. It’s truly that simple.
