You Don't Have to Feel Hangry! This One Practice Can Set You Free...

You're struggling to focus on your latest work project, but an escalating mix of hunger and anger has hijacked your brain. You just can't cope. You need a caramel latte, stat. Or a "healthy" protein bar. Or even a handful of almonds. Whatever it is, if you don't eat soon, things are going to get very ugly...

Does that sound familiar? If you become jittery, anxious, unfocused, and impatient a few hours after eating, you’re suffering from hangriness. And it’s awful.

It's also no way to live. Grazing regularly on small meals and snacks makes you a slave to your appetite. Most Americans now find it normal to walk around with a purse full of almonds and Larabars-or fall victim to the vending machine--but it’s actually an indication that something’s amiss.

Frequent eating keeps insulin circulating in your body. This puts you in a sugar-burning state, which sets your brain on high alert. It becomes harder to concentrate, your moods become unstable, and you feel like you need to eat--immediately.

 This isn’t weakness or indulgence. This is evolution.

Food is Information--and Your Body is Listening

Food is Information--and Your Body is Listening

If you want to look and feel good in your skin—and why wouldn’t you?—you need to pay attention to what you eat. You know that food is fuel for your body. But you may overlook that it’s also information. What that means is that what you eat has the power to change the expression of your DNA. In other words, you’re telling your body a story with your food that it then turns into reality. This narrative helps shape everything you become.

Do you still think that eating fat is bad for you? Do you buy low-fat yogurt, carefully measure the olive oil you drizzle on your salad, and think of steaks as artery-cloggers? Are you even still using margarine instead of butter?

I hate to say it, but you're living in the past. Back in the fifties, fat was implicated in all manner of health issues and subsequently shunned. The problem is that the implication was wrong. We're only now learning the havoc it wreaked (and continues to do).

So what is one of the major dietary causes of inflammation?

The consumption of vegetable oils. In a very frustrating turn of events, these oils are exactly what has been sold to us as being heart-healthy.

Ugh. Don't believe it.
