Got A Few Extra Pounds?

Dec 28, 2007
No doubt carrying a few extra pounds around can make us feel handcuffed.

Paul said that he continues doing what he doesn't want to, but that which he desires to do he cannot do.

Another way of saying this is that we are built to break rules. As humans we are meant to find freedom and testing and breaking those rules is part of this human experience. Does this mean that we are here to be stubborn and purposely create drama to get people upset - of course not. However, eating a meal big enough for 3, and then hoping that our bodies love us for it can not be called true freedom. We have to remember that we do live in the real world and there are consequences to all of our actions. At the same time, we are told that the greatest commandment is love and that love never lets us down.

And since love never lets us down, what do the 95% of all failing diets tell us? Is there much love there in those diets?

So what if we approached our bodies and our overall health with an amazing love that is tender, instead of submitting to someone else's diet - especially knowing that our deep rooted goal is to break free from rules, especially other people's rules.

Here are 3 things you can do to start being more loving with yourself.

1. Nutritional labels are not as truthful as we think, in fact they are quite misleading. A better way is to start reading the contents of the food, the ingredients. The fewer items on the ingredients list, the better. If your head understands what's in your food, then your body knows what to do with it.

2. Stay away from foods that say "fat free," or "light." Look at a bag of candies, often they now say "fat free" and that may be true. However, the content of these bags are pure chemicals mixed with some corn byproduct, which your body has absolutely no idea what to do with it. So it turns it into pure body fat. Just because you give your body a fat free product doesn't mean that your body won't convert it into fat. Remember that your body is a pure chemical laboratory and it can create anything it needs or has to in order to protect itself from harm. Your body's one purpose is for it to stay healthy for as long as you allow it, so it can carry you through life in order for you to carry out your life's purpose. All we have to do is learn to get out of its way, to stop playing God and to listen to what our bodies tell us.

3. Do not buy "fake foods" that are pretending to be something but are not. Good examples are "I can't believe it's not something" If the box says "I can't believe it" - it's just that simple: don't believe it! Because neither will your body. So instead of artificial sweeteners, give it organic honey or natural cactus sweetener from raw plants. Birch sugar is another great, but expensive, alternative, and is also safe for diabetics. Your body knows exactly what you feed it and can digest it and transform it to the perfect nutrition. Giving it alternative junk will put a big question mark in the processing of the foods you eat, which only serves to confuse and slow down your body, or reject it all together.
