Lost Control of food? I get itRead More
Worst time of day? Mid morning, when my sugary breakfast left me craving something more...
And those cravings! Pounding in my head over and over until I FEED them. It's the carb addiction cycle and it's real. It had me in it's hold.
22mos ago I stepped away from that cycle. It had left me in bondage, obese, depressed, ashamed and a bit lost. I felt hopeless and helpless...
"What made you change? Was there a magical moment?" I get asked. No magical, see-the-light moment just an opportunity to start a diet with my cousin. We'd been talking about how good we do and how great we felt when we did lowcarb...She needed to drop some weight, I needed to drop a ton of weight...
We linked arms, and for a year walked the walk. She lives in Boston and I live in Atlanta and we emailed almost daily.
No more donuts! No more pizza! No more iced cold beer!
No more shame!
No more lethargy!
No more helplessness!
No more hopelessness!
All because I changed my foods, removed CONTROLLING foods and get CONTROL BACK!
I simply changed my food for good. I found my food, and I've found my life again.
I don't need that donut or the carb addiction cycle any more...I've got life!

This is all too true for me. Carbs had control, the upper hand and they were definitely in charge of what I ate. I've come to accept that these foods are not only addicting, but I'm pretty much addicted.
Now hold on there, that's a pretty BIG label you are putting on my favorite foods, let alone on yourself.
But you see...
Sugars and Starches and Processed foods are highly problematic, and addictive. Find me ONE article that touts their benefits for quality of life and longevity?
At first we focus on the foods. We identify them, and we remove them and we Find Our Food and begin to come out of the fog, the dependency, the shame...
Then in order to keep the amazing changes we've made or the weight we've lost
WE NEED TO ACCEPT THIS IS OUR FOOD...
Because the carb cycle will crush you all over again...if you don't deal with it and then You!
Because food addictions most likely stem from addictive foods and the body is caught up in this cycle. Going low-carb will break this cycle and give you something in return...LIFE
