As more and more people focus on their overall health, many have found that gut health is integral to well-being. Dr. Chanu Dasari has spent his career in medicine working with gut related health issues and cancers. His research into the effect of chronic inflammation and an overwhelmed gut has led him to taking a full body approach to healing.
I was recently chatting with a friend and colleague who is well-known and liked in the industry. He asked me a question about my dietary habits and I realized that this question applies to most everyone trying to change their lives and bodies with food. Listen in to hear his question and why the answer is so important.
The gist of his question was essentially, how do you do it? How do you avoid sweets, grains, and all the junk that’s out there. The answer, while simple, is not accomplished in a very easy manner, but the reward is amazing.
It’s all about your identity and changing it. For instance, if you’re a non-smoker and someone offers you a smoke what do you tell them? You tell them no, I don’t smoke. You’ve assimilated into your identity that you are a non-smoker.
The same can be said of how you approach the food that you eat. I don’t have to avoid eating cake because I have changed my identity in that I just don’t eat cake. If someone offers it, I can easily avoid it because cake is not something that is in my diet and it’s not something that makes me feel good.
Listen in as I share how you can go about changing your own identity and why it gets easier over time rather than harder. As Tony Robbins says, “Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels.” Remember that as you feel the pull toward eating junk.
