So many of us do not want to hear it when we are told that “losing weight” will improve our ailments. We become angry and defensive and prefer to have a “quick fix” tablet. We want the easy way out.
Even when we look into a diet, we look for the one that allows us our “cheats” or that will magically make us lose weight without us starting to exercise or give up on anything.
Since I started “eating clean”, I have been amazed at what has improved in my life. The first thing I noticed was that I could go down stairs like a normal person instead of one step, one step and holding on for dear life. Hmmm. So it was just some weight (trust me I’ve still got quite a lot!!) rather than the non existent cartilage I was telling everyone it was.
I noticed within 4 days that I was not getting heartburn whereas before I had it every single day. I had convinced myself I had something physical wrong but no…. changed the diet and I’ve only had it on a couple of occasions since.
People talk about food sensitivities. I have never had IBS or stomach complaints so I really didn’t believe I had any food sensitivities or allergies at all. The first time I had a slice of bread after 6 months of clean eating, I had heartburn so badly I vomited. My body told me in no uncertain terms I was sensitive to gluten.
I’ve been helping 3 people with Type 2 diabetes so serious that they were all on daily Insulin injections. Within a month, all 3 no longer needed the injections, their blood pressure had dropped dramatically, their sleep had improved and they were feeling fantastic. That’s only 4 weeks!!!
All I am saying to you is, try hard not to be defensive. Rather, be willing to change your eating for a month, that’s just 4 weeks out of a lifetime which is practically nothing, but that nothing may change your life for the better forever. Do it – for YOU.
