New Food Paradigm
You are addicted to taste.
Sweet tastes. Greasy, creamy, fatty fried-food tastes. All served up with globs of bread-bread-bread. All packed with chemicals and compounds and things you can't even pronounce.
That's not food. But then you know that.
I'm sure, if you're like me, you crave of all these tastes. You've probably had a life-long love affair with "your foods and drinks," and the cool little places you go to get them. It's part of who you are. You would even defend getting to have them all till death! Not to mention, everybody you know eats and loves all the same foods ...
But that doesn't mean it's food, real food.
Real food is as simple as lean meats like baked chicken or fish, steamed, baked or even sauteed in a teaspoon of olive oil. Plus all the fruit and veggies you want. THAT'S FOOD.
Start eating real food and the weight you thought was impossible to lose, the weight several MULTI-BILLION dollar Industries have spent BILLIONS trying to convince us all that the only way we can lose that weight is by buying their products ... that very same weight will start magically dropping off. It's just that simple. Your body will start repairing itself instantly. Isn't that nice?
The truth is, It's time for you to finally take control of what and how you eat, and how that food is prepared. And that doesn't mean you're going to have to become a chef or spend a fortune on food. But it will take some effort and determination. But what doesn't?
It's time to say bye to junk. And don't forget; you can find junk at the finest restaurants at $300 bucks a plate. If it was fat cooked in fat, with sugar and bread - it's still junk, no matter how nice or charming the ambiance. Or how prestigious the Chef (they know what keeps you coming back.)
So who am I to say all this? I'm just your average 53 year old guy, who, after struggling my entire life, trying to lose a few lbs, lost 55 lbs over the past sixteen months by simply changing my views on what food really is. Plus, I worked out ... some. That's who.
And my wife (Guin) made this paradigm shift in food with me (she lost 20 lbs even though she didn't really have any to lose.) You'll be hearing tips from her as well.
So that's what this blog will be about - simply changing your definition of food, quick, smart ways to cook it and even faster, smarter ways to shop for it. Plus, helping you once and for all, tame that HUNGER BEAST of yours. It's been in control far too long.
For now, stop eating sugar. Do that one thing - I dare ya. I triple-dawg dare ya (if that's what it takes.) See what happens.
You'll become addicted to something new - how great you look and feel.
And then you'll want more. So you'll start researching and learning what "super foods" are how green teas can help you control your appetite. Soon your old waiters, bar-tenders and baristas will forget who you are, or at least not recognize you the next time they see you. And soon, that person with the chubby cheeks, the one looking back at you in the mirror, will start looking younger and leaner by the month, Try that on for size. It's better than eating a platter of freshly baked brownies or entire double-stuffed pizza - it just is. And soon, those "late night, foods ya gotta have" commercials ya see on TV - it will all cease looking like food. And more like what it really is - crap.
Cheers and we look forward to having you back. We just kicked this blog off with the new year, so new posts filled with tips on how we made the adjustment are soon to follow
