What has made maintenance work for me? Staying connected to others! People not only going the same way, but committed to being IN community and building community. It ends up building us up!
Local people, gathering and following a global shift with food. People have gotten sick on Lowfat diet and following the guidelines given out by our government. It's happened globally. Obesity and Diabetes are a pandemic! In seeking to fix this scientists have found out what caused it...The high carbohydrate and processed foods along with the sugars that are everywhere.
Local people are gathering and seeking to change their health and weight. Local people who've lost themselves first in foods and now in addictions to those foods. Local people who come together and help other local people...
Connecting to a Global move away from problematic foods really started with the rise in popularity of Paleo. Paleo demands we get back to whole foods and quality food. The next wave is sugar! Where is the sugar and what turns into sugar in our digestive track. Removing the bad carbs and focusing on the healthy green carbs is transforming weight loss, and personal control over food!
I watch this happen weekly in the local people! It's SAVING lives including mine!
