Avoid “Dietary Crack”

Last time I spoke of an article that reported the average American gets 60% of calories from sugar, flour and refined oils.  In fact, the article called foods with these ingredients “dietary crack” as they can become addicting.  There are ways to make better food choices. Here are some challenges for you. Cultivate a proper eating mindset about these foods, as they literally are disease promoting refined foods.  Remember, almost everyone likes the taste of dietary crack. Partake only occasionally, just not on a regular basis. Eat more protein and veggies as they tend to promote satiety. Respect the feeling of gut fullness, stop eating there. Keep the dietary crack out of the house, thus less temptation. Drink more water. Exercise more and at a level that promotes appetite suppression. Sleep well. Get at least 6-7 hours nightly. Fight stress with exercise, not food. Accept that the previous list of challenges can be utilized throughout your life!!
