Eating to Succeed
The next time you try to work out just why you cannot think straight and get everything you need to get done completed, consider blaming your food. (“Eating For Success PLR Ebook | Private Label Rights”)
It is a scary concept – that our thoughts and ability to succeed can be so affected by what we eat, but for millions of people around the globe it is a day-to-day war their body and mind pit against each other.
Even on amazingly simple terms, we need the fuel from food to survive. While fasting can be used by some to clear the mind during certain events, as a rule, our brain needs feeding. (“Get Paid To Share EBooks and Videos”) And it needs the right feeding to do well.
“We get plenty of health and nutritional advice all the time.” (“Eating for Success”) In fact, in many ways, it is thrown at us from every direction. Even the fast-food giants now tell you exactly what is in their products. (“Statement of Rights”)
“However, it appears that the more we know about nutrition, the more we studious avoid the facts.” (“Statement of Rights”) In less than ten years, three quarters of the western world is on the path to being classified as overweight (or worse, obese, or morbidly obese.) The numbers of people looking to pharmaceutical relief for depression and addictions is growing and our energy levels are collectively at an all-time low.
It might feel like we know a lot about food, but are we using that knowledge? And how can we be sure that what we are putting into our bodies is health, strength, and energy? (“Eating For Success PLR eBook | Private Label Rights”)
For most of us, the sorts of foods we eat now are quite different to the foods we grew up on. There were no constant ads on TV on how to lose ten pounds in ten weeks. Takeaways were a real treat, and no one made home deliveries. Mothers tended to be at home, where they cooked often plain but also nutritious food (meat and two veg anyone?) There was home baking too, but it was made with natural ingredients and did not have things like corn syrup and fancy chemicals to keep it fresher for longer. (“Get Paid to Share EBooks and Videos”)
Supermarkets were not open twenty-four hours a day. “We had to walk down to the corner shop to get bread, and that is all we got, because everything else was so expensive.” (“Eating for Success”) There were fewer impulse buys on junk food. “Fathers tended the home veg garden, and there were sometimes fruit trees too.” (“Statement of Rights”)
It was not all food utopias. We ate lollies. A lot of them sometimes. Pocket money went a long way. But it was not an everyday thing. “It was more of a once a week as soon as I got paid treat.” (“Get Paid to Share eBook’s and Videos”)
Fruit was more expensive. If it was not straight from our own tree, it was metered out. We did not have huge portions of meat, and the fill up food was a cheese sandwich.
But we were not obsessed about food either. Those were less stressful times in many ways. “These days on top of worries about finances, jobs, family issues and stress, we worry about food.” (“Eating for Success – Trans4mind”)
The adage we are what we eat has never been truer than when talking about our ability to focus and work. With our heavy use of computers, cell phones, and televisions we do not move so much. We spend our days behind the wheel, behind the desk and then behind a cushion when snuggled up on the couch. Not only are we expending less energy, but we are filling our bodies up with so much more food and treats because we feel we deserve it. (“Statement of Rights”)
Choice has become one of our very worst enemies. The average family needs about 140 assorted products from the supermarket over a monthly period. (“Eating for Success – Trans4mind”) However, finding the right 140 products when you are faced with over ten thousand choices (the amount in an average sized supermarket) is fraught with stress.
“Most of us have a fair understanding of nutrition and what is good and bad for us.” (“Statement of Rights”) The problem is there are just too many things to choose from. (“Choose the Right Chart Type for your Data – Digital …”) Even if we want to, how have we got the time to read every label, and make so many right choices? (“Eating for Success”) Sometimes it is just easier to order in pizza.
Of course, after we do, we will just swallow back some Vitamin C, and some St John’s Wort for our efforts. “Not only has the food choices we need to make grown hugely, but all the supplements and vitamins we need to take to stay healthy has grown too.” (“Eating for Success”) “Everything is meant to be essential, and important for our well-being.” (“Statement of Rights”)
Of course, there is a time and a place for these things. Just like there is a time and a place for pizza, chocolate, and ice-cream. The issue is not what we are eating so much as it is how and why we are eating.
We need food. It refuels us, gives us the energy we need, works with our bodies to keep us alive. We use any nutrients we eat to create new cells, growth our hair, and repair our bodies. (“Statement of Rights”) If all we give our bodies is junk, is it any wonder that we are not feeling the love?
The best sort of diet we should have been not so much about making sure you eat an apple a day, and never touch another chocolate bar again. It is about basing your diet around three things: balance, quality, and output. (“Eating for Success – Trans4mind”)
