Dietary Transition: It's a Wholistic Process West Des Moines IA

We become comfortable with our habits, especially the dulling ones, and tragically we accept whatever consequences the unhealthful ones bring. Cooked heavy foods—meat and flour—are very dullling. They literally clog and glue us up, and stifle our brain power. What can help us to loosen the grip on the unhealthful habits?

Dietary Transition: It's a Wholistic Process

by David Klein, Ph.D.

From Living Nutrition vol. 1

People commonly associate their lifestyle habits with their selves; they hold the idea that their identity is the sum of their daily routine, and the thought of exploring new experiences outside of their norm is discomforting. “I’m not going to stop eating meat (or bean and cheese burrios at Taco Bell). I could never change myself, and I don’t want to.” In the face of all the truthful dietary information which is lately beginning to come out, what is it that still holds people back from making changes, even if deep down inside they’d really like to?

I believe the key here is comfort. We become comfortable with our habits, especially the dulling ones, and tragically we accept whatever consequences the unhealthful ones bring. Cooked heavy foods—meat and flour—are very dullling. They literally clog and glue us up, and stifle our brain power. What can help us to loosen the grip on the unhealthful habits?

The most effective concept to make real is, we are not our habits. I read that in 1986 in Tony Robbins’ book Unlimited Power. Tony’s book teaches us how to become the master of our destiny (rather than a prisoner of our past habits and thoughts, or our personality) by applying the science of Neuro-linguistic Programming, which was developed by John Bandler and Richad Grinder in the early 1980s.
