What if for one day you ate a clean, healthy, abundant diet? Would you go into shock, would you die without sugar for a day? Would you be proud of yourself? Would you feel vibrant and full of life? Would you be shunned by society? Are you willing to give it a shot?
Wait, don’t answer that until you hear exactly what you would be giving up. You would have to completely eliminate (not just cut back on) sodas, any and all sugar or sugar derivatives, all artificial sweeteners, processed foods, additives, preservatives, processed oils, processed grains, no eating out, nothing that resembles the standard American diet. Now what is your answer? Would it be hard? For some people, even the thought seems impossible.
OK, if you are still in, here is what you get to add! Organic fruit, organic vegetables, good oils like coconut and olive, organic grass fed beef, organic chicken, organic free range eggs, raw nuts/seeds, etc. That doesn’t sound too bad, right? This is where the going gets tough and people fold- they miss their chips, sodas, and little debbies. It’s hard! It’s unusual! It’s weird!
If you are willing to give this little experiment a try, browse around, get some meal ideas, try some, get cooking, and dust off your stove and kitchen table- you will be using it!
If you bailed earlier, why would you not do it? Is it because it is too hard, you don’t have enough time, you don’t know how, etc? Well, those are all excuses that are making you believe that is the reality. But it is not true. You can do it, it is not impossible. After all, cancer doesn’t care about your excuses. Neither do heart disease or diabetes. No one is going to make changes for you, you have to want it for yourself. It is like buying an insurance policy. It is like putting money in the bank of health. Refusing to do it is blatent disrespect to your body. Don’t let your excuses hold you back from achieving your maximized life.
Change is Good!
