Do you also belong to that type of people, who always plan to eat more fruits and vegetables, but can’t avoid sweets and fastfood?
I read about a study, published in the Journal of Behavioral and Brain science, where it said:
when you doodle unhealthy food like sweets and fastfood it makes you more happy and you will eat more healthy in future.
So I tried it this morning and made some sketch notes of unhealthy food, which came immediately to my mind.
After that I was not hungry anymore (and I am most of the time hungry).
Try it out. What are your experiences?
To have a changing result of your habits, you should do it at least for 2 weeks everyday. I am going to do the same.
I would really appreciate to get some feedback about your experiences.
Acid Base Balance
I try to keep my acid-base balance, since I had an overacidification two years ago, after a time where I had my second small burnout.
My first one, was from working too much, but my second was caused by a mixture of too much work and too much leisure stress.
So my doctor recommended me to make a detox diet to clean my body and reduce the stress by slowing down. Because not just nutrition can cause an overacidification, also stress produce it.
Today we are totally overacidificated, by stress, nutrition, chemical in our environment.
That can cause a lot of decease. For example cancer is based on a toxid body, where it can grow. By avoiding it your chance to get cancer is very low.
For two years now, I was including a detox nutrition in my daily life. And my body feels healthier, lighter and younger than before today.
I made a test and pissed on a stripe. And as you can see, it’s all in the “blue area”. 😉
