THE goodsugar DIET™ Support Pages
I am supportive of whatever you feel you need to do to get your calories. My job is to just tell you the facts about food as I understand them.
Some people declare themselves to be meat eaters but are cautious regarding their dietary choices. I know a lot of people who think that they’re minimizing their health risks by taking measures such as eating only fish rather than red meat. Some detail about that is warranted, and I intend to address it in other articles, but this short article is only regarding processed meat products.
Certain behaviors stop serving us at certain points in our lives; we have to recognize this and then we have to create processes for letting such detrimental behaviors go. This is not easy, and we avoid doing it - we prefer quick fix, simple solutions. Many who create fad diets recognize this, and this is why fad diets are popular and profitable for their creators.
Please understand that I’m not trying to sell a particular diet. I just have a strong desire to share many truths I’ve learned about healthy dietary practices – things I’ve successfully applied to my own life and things that have been of tremendous benefit to many others.
The first step to a healthy dietary lifestyle destination is ‘soul searching.’ We have to recognize unhealthy dietary practices and patterns. We have to realize that they are disrupting our body chemistry and might be leading us toward disorders or diseases.
Being well is also a mental process; you can’t just fix your physical body and leave your mental health unchecked; the two entities are inextricably connected. The body and the mind interact in ways that not even science can understand yet.
So another biohacking process I can highly recommend is the understanding that you must set your mind on improving both your mental and physical health. You must make doing that a daily practice. Laziness and fear will be impediments to your progress in doing so, so you must put them aside. To ensure that you will progress in improving mental and physical health, seek out a coach and one or more good mentors.
The ketogenic diet is not a positive step to good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. It is completely unsustainable for a number of reasons.
For one thing, in both the short- and long-term it could have a negative effect on your overall body chemistry. By following it, you’re creating routines and habits that entail eating much more protein than what is healthy for an adult’s chemistry. It will be very hard to break such habits.
This bears repeating: If a person with any of hundreds of degenerative diseases used the Bulletproof products regularly, this person would suffer. It doesn’t give me pleasure to make such statements, but it’s my right to do so. And it’s my intent to promote practices that lead to good health and to speak out against practices that don’t.
Stimulating energy without nutrition taxes the body and ages you faster. It’s a mistake to become hyper-focused on weight loss alone. Removing all processed food, pasta, cereal, bread, soda, candy, and white sugar will induce sustainable weight loss and make the body more efficient. In the end, you’ll need fewer calories to support higher levels of activity.
