Sorry, I really have to apologize
Yes, yes, yes … In my last blog article I started out with a difficult topic but rather than introducing it gently and easily I started out with the most difficult aspect for many. What happened is this.
Stress has a lot to do with what we eat.
This is true both ways. Stress causes you to eat the wrong food, e.g. the stress hormone cortisol makes us crave fat and sugar. On the other hand bad nutrition makes us more susceptible to stress. If we have 20 or 30 pounds too many we don’t feel quite as well, we are not as mobile, we will even get sick more often.
Therefore, for the last couple of years Judy and I have been studying and experimenting with different ways of eating. We actually found 4 different systems which helped us feel great, have energy, keep our weight in line and in general supported good health. More about all of them will be in another article soon.
The easiest and most adaptable of those systems seems to be intermittent fasting. That’s why I was so excited when I read Dr. Jason Fung’s book. To repeat:
Jason Fung, MD. He wrote it with a well known health author and blogger, Jimmy Moore:
“The Complete Guide to Fasting”
Now the reason I want apologize is Dr. Fung’s book is probably not the easiest way to start out with. You have to really be seriously committed to dive into his research and recommendations.
That’s why I want apologize to you. I’m sorry we didn’t start out with an easier recommendation.
Why is eating right so difficult?
Why is keeping our weight down so difficult?
Why has everything we’ve tried not worked?
Because we have been misinformed about nutrition. We have been misinformed about how our body really works.
Now here are the answers in a short highly concentrated 36-minute video presentation. Here is a great way to start learning about what’s wrong with our current nutrition quickly but thoroughly. Here is a great way to learn how our body really functions:
Dr. Jason Fung - 'Therapeutic Fasting - Solving the Two-Compartment Problem'
Watch this video and you will start rethinking how you eat. I’m not exaggerating. Dr. Fung has been practicing both in the United States and in Canada. He really knows what he’s talking about. And he explains it in very clear easy to understand terms.
Remember what bad nutrition and bad eating habits can do to you! You feel bad, you feel guilty, and you feel older than you are. Also remember a long list of serious illnesses which are the result of metabolic disease, of bad eating habits.
This is not fear mongering. This is real. If many of you readers might already have some of these symptoms, hopefully just starting. Take action and get Dr. Fung’s book now. Follow his advice and in a short time you’ll have more energy and feel better. And then with a little more time your health will improve.
Judy and I know from our own experience, the better way to eat makes a huge difference in our lives.
Live better and live longer!
