It’s not your fault
Our body is designed to survive like the caveman days.
Hunt, gather, build, climb, run, keep warm, and provide.
We were created to survive the feast and famine.
When we reached our food source in the stone ages, we would gorge because it may be days before we would get food again. Is that same instinct kicking in at Thanksgiving dinner?
Think about each new invention and gadget it has ease of use and some sort of laziness attribute to it that makes it pleasing. Something that makes life easier. As a caveman, it was a big production to cook dinner! There were any microwaves uber eats or drive-throughs.
Sleep was inherent with the sunrise and fall. Now we are glued to our devices and computers, putting off a ton of blue light affecting our hormones and circadian rhythm.
We are now chronically stressed out with financial fears, drama, overworked, unfulfilled, and pressures. We are elevating our cortisol levels, which is intended to protect us when the saber tooth tiger is endangering our lives, no all day every day.
So what does all this mean? We need balance on our plates, an understanding of what we need to eat to either maintain our weight or lose if that’s the phase you’re in.
Eat quality food over high calorie-rich with flavor and calories.
Be more active and less sedentary(or lazy).
Get quality deep sleep every night, the same bedtime, and wake up time every day, no matter the day.
This, along with focusing on other health aspects and embracing that food is fuel more than comfort, will achieve better long-lasting results.
