Hi there !
Since yesterday my brain has been boiling and I barely slept and I am still unable to rest.
Since I watched this : http://youtu.be/nxf4kj8Rb6Y, I am just all over the place and fully into fruits.
The part that is putting my brain into a state of nuclear fusion is the fact that the brain can send us spiraling down into bad habits because it is into that state of "under pleasure".
As long as the brain is sending those messages there is no real way we can get out of bad habits whether it is with food, people, sex, drugs. It is always going to catch up with us and drag us down again.
But the best part is that there is a way out even if very hard and tough.
One of the keys given in the lecture is : knowing that those messages the brain sends to us are illusions.
Whenever I feel bad about myself, it is an illusion, each time I think I need to eat the cooked/ salty / processed/bigger amount of food because at the moment I am feeling unhappy IT IS JUST AN ILLUSION CREATED BY MY BRAIN TO MAKE ME DO SOMETHING AND GET BACK TO THE EMOTIONAL STATE OF HAPPINESS.
But it is wrong, it is leading me ultimately to premature death by heart attack, arteries being clogged or any other health issue related to the poor eating habits.
The brain, my brain has been tricked by the actual food I consumed over the 35 years of my life so far and so it is programmed to make me do all the wrong things over and over again.
The system that is supposed to keep me alive and healthy in order to make babies is failing me because it has been twisted/damaged/tricked by the crap food I have been eating.
What a shock !
So each time I feel that urge to eat cooked food or processed food or anything not raw and not HCRV I know, now, this is a just an illusion. I don't need to think I am betraying my body and he knows better than me what I should be eating or not. i am not doing myself something wrong or hurting my body, I am not disrespecting my body wisdom and my inner temple...
Each time it is just my addicted, distorted brain sending me a wrong message and I AM OK RESISTING THE URGE AND THE CRAVINGS.
I am not damaging myself by doing so I AM DOING WHAT IS RIGHT FOR ME AND MY BODY AND MY SELF ESTEEM AND SELF CONSIDERATION AND SELF LOVE.
This is so powerful I haven't been able to sleep in 2 days now.
WOW WOW !
I am planning a datorade and a weight training session tonight to get the sleep back in the loop.
Remember people, the cravings, the cooked food attraction is just an ILLUSION. there is nothing real about it !
