5 actionable steps for a healthier you

1) Understanding the 6 types of human hunger

I) Hunger of thirst

II) Hunger from variety

III) Empty stomach hunger (it’s not necessarily hunger, it’s just a physical sensation)

IV) Low blood sugar (action step :shift to fat burning metabolism; good quality carbohydrates)

V) Emotional hunger

VI) Nutritional hunger (now this is the real hunger that need nutritional satisfaction)

2) Get enough of the good

For example, if you are locked in a room for 6months and you are provided with the right nutrients and no junk foods, you can survive but if someone comes and eliminates the foods with Vitamin C and locks you up for another 6 months, you might succumb to scurvy ….. It’s not that you took anything bad, it’s because you lacked something in your diet…. The bottom line is, take enough of the good….

3) understanding the food timeline

4) Decoding food marketing

Be aware that food industries focus on making profit and not about your health….

sugar stimulates one’s appetite; it makes one crave for more …… Sugar is an addictive…..

5) convince others

Don’t push people; when you push you create resistance. Instead, lead people; when you lead you create followers…

Summary

1)You are what you eat…. (come to think of it, it makes sense because what you consume, is broken down by your body to form cells and tissues)

2) You have been miseducated by the food industry…..

3)Your failed diet attempts are not your fault….

4)Low fat isn’t necessarily good for you…. Take enough fat because most of the percentage of our brains are made of fat….. Do not take too much, do not take too little, instead take enough….
