An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RANT: The New Year’s Diet

For 7 years strait I have said “get healthier” and “remember people’s names better” as my New Year’s Resolutions.  And every year has ended with minimal progress in either arena.

Although….. this year was a success! I still fumble with acquaintances’ appellations, but fortunately, thanks to the Integrative Institute of Nutrition I have found my passion and found a way to make real change in my health and diet.  You can get a free nutrition book from the link above if you tell ’em I sent you.  You can thank me later, not just for the free book, but for the amazing information inside it!

From it, I learned the New Year’s resolution diet fails for the same reasons it doesn’t work during the year. In order to make real change, you have to change your behaviors, and to change your behaviors, you have to change your thoughts and feelings.  But how do you change your thoughts and feelings? It’s easy, and it’s called Hypnotism!

Seriously? I’m kidding, It’s called Education!  Learning about what your body needs and how to manage cravings and emotional eating.  Because that’s what causes most bad eating habits.

So, what will you do differently in the new year? (Besides curl up with your new awesome free book)

While you are pondering that, if your are the type that wants a tool, to help you meet your body’s nutritional needs and shed some weight, I recommend you check out the following short term or long term weight loss products. But remember long-term health must address all aspects of your life.  Start by giving your body the nutrients it needs.  Not some fad diet.  When your body is getting good sleep, when you are satisfied and  feel loved, when you are eating real food and taking clean, high-quality supplements, your cravings subside.

    Wow, it’s interesting that you’re a medical doctor and decided to do the IIN program. What did you think of it? As someone who has spent 7 years studying nutrition (and many years of foundational science before it) I have a sort of knee jerk reaction to nutrition programs like this, but perhaps I should reconsider that position. Though as a doctor you obviously have extensive background education in health and science that the average participant in this program would not…

      I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the program because it explores not only the food aspects of nutrition, but also the emotional nutrition we all need (from relationships, career satisfaction, creativity spirituality, physical activity,etc)
      It also covers political influences of our food industry.
      I’ve found though I received excellent medical training, most of the patients I see could self heal with better diets, but bc eating is so emotional, improved personal satisfaction and relationships are imperative.

      Thx for reading.
