Did you make any promises to yourself at the start of the summer? Maybe you wanted to fit into a new bathing suit. Maybe you wanted to wear suits without feeling embarrassed. Maybe you just wanted to lose some weight and enjoy the summer without feeling so hot all the time.
With the long Labor Day weekend coming up, the summer comes to a close. And what happened to your summertime resolution? If you’re like a lot of people May came and went and so did your new diet. Maybe you stayed strong for a week or two and then it was right back to your old habits. Why did you fail? Why was this summer the same as last summer?
It could be that you suffer from food addiction.
This holiday weekend people will fire up their barbeques for the last time and picnic tables will be overloaded with pasta salad, desserts, and chips. How does this make you feel? Are you worried about self control at your block party? Will you obsess about the food at your family picnic? Do you feel guilt and shame about the way you behave at potlucks?
These are all classic signs of addiction.
Addiction is a scary word, but if you consume sugar and refined flour, your body is addicted to it in just the same way an alcoholic is addicted to alcohol or a heroin addict is to heroin. Sugar and flour trigger chemical responses in your brain. Sugar and flour make you feel good and, with repeated use of these substances, your brain begins to crave more and more sugar and flour to be satisfied. When you try lose weight, you go through chemical withdrawal. Your brain increases these cravings, making weight loss difficult, if not impossible.
But you can change. This Labor Day can be a turning point for you. You don’t have to be a prisoner of your cravings.
Why wait another day to feel better about your body? Why spend another summer hiding? Why put off becoming your Skinny Self? You owe it to your family to be healthy. You owe it to your friends to have more energy. Most of all you owe it to yourself to be the person you want to be.
