JJ Vigin decodes some of the misinformation of fad diets and fake sweeteners that lower the calorie content of many of our American food favorites and actually alter brain chemistry as a side effect. Unfortunately, the mind and body are not connected when one’s experiencing what can be described as “uncontrollable food cravings”. Breaking the cycle of addiction means eliminating the processed food completely in order for the body to recognize that “low grade unhealthy” feeling we’ve grown so accustomed to. The things that are holding someone back from sustained weight loss are often times foods that are already causing several unrecognized side effects within the body. Removing the processed-toxic food allows the body to get back into balance and restore its natural energy.
That bowl of cereal has more of an addictive pull than most consumers comprehend. It’s time we become more aware of what we’re eating and making choices that support the longevity of our health instead of challenging it.
