Sugar and the problems it can cause in our bodies.
Believe it or not, sugar is nasty. Sugar is what cancer eats to survive. People who have cancer have got to go off of sugar. That’s one of the very first things you’ve got to do in order to try to keep that cancer from metastasizing all over your body. Sugar is addictive because it’s a brain chemical. There are receptors in the brain that are stimulated through pleasure and sugar, ice cream at night, right? That’s really a fun thing to eat.
Getting out of your addiction
The problem is once you’re addicted and it’s a physical addiction, you’ve got to do some real work to get out of that. It does start with a mindset.
• You got to change your belief system.
• You got to be willing to be a little bit disciplined and say, Hey, that’s not really what I want.
Why do we all get up in the morning and go straight for the coffee pot? What is it? How is it that the world runs on Dunkin’? I mean, that’s a commercial saying, but you know, it’s true, most people are drinking coffee. It is addictive. It does a stimulating effect to get your engine up and running in the morning. There is a formula and if you understand this formula, it’s easy to reverse the formula.
Let’s look at the formula and how our minds work and why we have all these habits and rituals and the things that we do.
Thoughts lead to feelings, feelings lead to actions and actions lead to results.
If the results that you’re getting in your life, with your body, with your health, with your career, whatever it is, are not the results that you want, then you turn around and you work backwards.
Well, what was I … Why did I take that action? Why did I stay up late watching that movie, eating that ice cream? What do I need to start thinking in order to feel different and to reprogram my brain to live in another way? Thoughts lead to feelings, feelings lead to actions, actions lead to results.
If you want to change, reverse the formula.
