Modern food manufacturers have overwhelmed grocery store shelves with foods that are nutrient poor, rotten, spoiled, dead, old, and contaminated with antibiotics, chemicals, and growth hormones. Refining has also brought us spectacularly fattening foods: namely white flour, white sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and industrial seed oils. These fake foods distort your appetite and make it incredibly easy to consume more calories than you require, perpetuating a vicious cycle of stuffing your face but never being totally satisfied.
Have you ever noticed that you can eat a whole bag of potato chips, box of crackers, or an entire pizza in one sitting? That’s because they do not contain the natural substances your body requires to realize that it just ate. An example: you know those little 100 calorie packs of crackers, cookies or chips? When you get to the end of the bag (circa five seconds flat), you want another one, don’t you? But how many times have you eaten a big, juicy apple (usually about 100 calories, by the way) and said to yourself, “Dude, I really want another apple right now”? Never. Your brain knows when you eat real food.
When you are hungry, your body doesn’t necessarily want food, it wants nutrition. If you feed it foods that are nutrient-poor, your brain and body will never really feel totally satisfied. The key is to feed yourself nutrient-dense foods that kill your hunger.
