“Words have an incredible impact on our ability to succeed, and hearing the right words in your self-talk is crucial to your success. While you can’t control the flow of words through your head, there is a way to change them. You see, when you change your emotions, you’ll change what drives the brain.”
In today's diet debates, there is a lot of discussion around carbohydrates and dietary fats. Without understanding each macronutrient and its effect on your energy levels, it can be hard to choose the diet strategy that is best for you. In this blog, we will dive into the biochemistry of carbohydrates, dietary fat, and how your body converts them to energy!
Most of us have experienced intense hungers and sugar cravings that we just can’t overcome. We’ve all heard people tell us to “have some self-control” or “just don’t eat it”. We all know the feeling when the cravings take over. We eat that extra cookie despite knowing we shouldn’t. You have been told it’s your fault and your lack of will power over and over again, but it is not your fault. Our inability to stand up to sugar cravings and hungers is not because we’re not trying hard enough. It’s not because we don’t want it badly enough. It is because sugar and carbohydrates produce a hormonal and neurological response that our bodies are not equipped to overcome.
Did you know that the sugar industry placed the blame on fats? For so long, we’ve been told that fats are bad. Low-fat this, non-fat that. But why?
Changing your lifestyle can be very scary especially when it’s something that impacts your everyday routine. Food is a major part of all cultures, religions and ethnicities. It makes us happy, brings us together and is the center of many traditions.
