Are You Addicted To Carbs? Here Is What You Can Do.

Carbohydrates are highly addictive. We are conditioned as children to feed a carb addiction – most children consume large amounts of sugar daily. Sugars and refined grains are added to baby food, cereal, candy, and virtually all processed foods.

Carbs are so addictive because they trigger two hormones: dopamine and serotonin. These are pleasure and happiness hormones.  This sugar addiction is real and it will literally control you to a point where you are completely out of control.

Over time, an addiction to carbs becomes stronger and stronger.

So what can you do to break a carb addiction?

Happy New Year! Here are the Top 10 Posts for 2021

The Top 10 Posts of 2021 are ranked by the number of times you viewed a Post.

Before we dive into the top 10, I would like to review the focus of this Blog.

I believe the best way to predict my future is to create it. To do that, I make it a habit to improve my health.

My goal is to maximize my physical performance and mental clarity, body composition, and most importantly my overall health with a wholesome diet and exercise.

Why am I so concerned, you may ask. My motivation came from watching my mother suffer from numerous illnesses. Her life was regulated by when she had to take her drugs.

I have been retired for a while and I have yet to experience any of her illnesses. I attribute that to eating a wholesome diet and exercise.

I supplement my diet with high-quality natural vitamins, mineral and supplements.

In my posts, I focus on two diets: the Ketogenic (Low-Carb) and GAPS (Gut and Psychology / Physiology Syndrome) diets.

My exercise of choice is Dr. Doug McGuff’s Super Slow High-Intensity Exercise Program that I do for 15 minutes, once a week. If you would like a PDF of the book please email me for copy.
