I often ask my patients if this speck could be making them tired. Yet when it creeps up slowly on me, it always takes me a while to realize there is a real reason for my fatigue. And it could be the reason for yours too. The good thing is that once you know it’s there, you can do something about it. What is it?
Did you know that you have about 95% control over your health outcomes? This means that
whether you live a long healthy life OR NOT, is almost 100% in your hands. So when does it
matter that you take control of your health to create the healthspan (how long you’re healthy
while you’re alive) and lifespan that you desire?
If you’re reading this blog it’s very likely that you have an interest in your health. Do you
exercise? Take supplements? Do gluten-free? Avoid dairy? Avoid sugar or refined oils? What is
actually the most effective way to prevent disease? And it’s the same thing our forefathers
would need to have focused on for robust health.
If you’ve been reading my blogs about hunger, you can probably guess this one. It’s number six and the last of human hungers. It’s why most people think they’re overweight. And the hardest one to get a handle on...
If you’ve been reading my blogs the last week or two, you know about the first 4 human
hungers. Today we are on human hunger number 5. It’s why you get bored eating the same
thing over and over. And it’s tightly linked to another human hunger. What is it?
Why do we scarf down a whole bag of sour cream n’ onion chips? Or eat a tub of ice cream in one sitting? And maybe that’s not you, but maybe you’ve been known from time to time to have a few more pieces of pizza than you should. I acknowledge the fact that yes, these foods are designed to be addictive, there is another reason why some of us may have difficulty eating just a little. I’ve written about the first 3 human hungers recently. The number four human hunger, and the only true human hunger is for…
One of the reasons I am obsessed with knowing how our body works is that the most important
currency for me, besides time, is energy. How, when and what we eat is a large determinant of
our energy. And understanding why we want the foods we want is part of that knowledge. If you
didn’t know there are 6 types of human hunger, you know it now. And I revealed the first two in
my last blog. I’m sure you can guess some of them, but understanding how they work and
putting it all together can be a game changer.
This is a line I have heard many times over the years, “I think about food all the time. It makes me crazy.” If that is true for you, have you ever wondered why this is the case, or if you have certain times of day, what is going on that you just need to eat? There are 6 types of hunger that humans have. Two of them are not actually signs of hunger, but they make us want to eat. What are they?
Have you ever thought about how long you can go without certain nutrients? For some it’s
years, some months, some days, but this one it’s just minutes. Without it you die. So for your
entire life, you are getting enough, but are you getting the optimal amount? And what if you
infuse your cells with this nutrient intentionally? How will it affect your health? What is it?
If you’re human, and I know you are, we all veer from our ideal habits from time to time. And if you’re like most people, some of your habits are less than ideal most of the time. I always see a new year as a great time for a reset. A time to create a new lasting healthy habit that gradually pays you back with dividends. There is a kind of health care that when practiced, has an anchoring effect making it much more likely that your health will go exactly the way you intend. What is it?
