How to Change Toxic Eating Habits
Toxic foods and substances wreak havoc on the human body with or without ones awareness. If a bag of chocolate candy lays beside you, chances are you might eat more than you intend. Chocolate candy appeals to your appetite, by stimulating your body’s reward centers. When I eat a piece of chocolate, I feel its reward in the moment I am actively eating it. After it passes through my palette and on its way through the digestive process, this feeling of reward disperses.
Toxic Foods Exploit Appetite
The reward lies only in the moment. This is the principle of toxic substances. They lure our nearsighted appetite, engaging our physical senses at the entry point of the body, smell taste, touch. As the process of digestion unfolds, we’re faced with the toxic substance’s path of destruction: Tooth decay, bloating, joint pain, joint stiffness, dry, brittle skin, hair and nails, weakened immune system, abdominal discomforts, bladder and kidney affections, irritability, lack of mental clarity, headache, high blood pressure, irregular moods, and vision disorders are a few examples of the destructive impact of these toxic substances in our system.
If your health is already compromised, such as if you have migraines, arthritis, injuries, certain sensitivities of mind, body or mood or any of the conditions listed above, you will feel the path of destruction in the affected areas first. Controlling your appetite is one of the basic actions you must take to combat toxic food’s exploitation of your physical senses. Just as important as it is to eat the foods that aid in your body’s natural healing process, it is equally important to eliminate toxic foods from your diet.
Understanding How Toxic Foods Manipulate Appetite
Consuming water and fruit or the juice from raw fruits for one day can flush your system and reset your palette. In order to understand the level of toxicity in many common highly sweetened processed foods, try this for 2 and 1/2 days. After the second day, continue with this pattern, though for lunch, eat a donut or a snack cake. You should immediately feel the toxic strength of sweeteners that flood your system. If you were to continue for 4 days in not consuming processed foods loaded with additives and sweeteners, drinking only water and consuming raw fruits, your understanding would be even greater when you pick up one donut and prove to yourself how fiercely these toxic foods enter the blood stream. This demonstrates how the process of detoxification works.Your understanding is necessary to start to change your eating habits and regulate your appetite.
If highly processed, sweetened, refined foods are your default diet, your body builds up a tolerance to these foods. Your appetite adjusts to accommodate higher levels of sugar and salt in your diet, at least until that accumulation causes a malfunction. When you reset your appetite by detoxifying, you will taste your food as it is, and can make food choices based on the perceptible results. You will become more sensitive to what you put into your system and your senses will become more acute. If you continue to eat more fruits throughout the day, you will begin to successfully eliminate cravings for toxic processed foods and refined sugars.
Improving Appetite; Avoid the Toxic Food Trap
In order to keep up a healthy diet it is necessary to discuss the barriers that have made a path for an unhealthy diet. Level of availability, prices, transportation, lack of information, time constraints all play a part in long-term poor eating habits. When people know that they can buy healthy foods, they do so regardless of social or economic status, demographics, education level, race or nationality. What you find in many of the statistical information is a snapshot of current conditions. If produce is unavailable to a segment of the population, the statistics reflect that. That is not to conclude these conditions are necessarily desired.
Cost, availability, and quality are three of the major components to maintaining a healthy diet. The price is frequently an invitation or a barrier. Knowing that you can afford to buy enough fruit and vegetables that you do not have to eat junk food in any part of your day can significantly reduce unhealthy eating choices and reset your appetite. One method of addressing cost is buying fruit and vegetables wholesale.
Save Money by Eating Healthy
You can save up to 50% off of your grocery bill by purchasing fruits and vegetables wholesale. One 40 lb. case of apples may cost you anywhere from $25-$40 depending on the variety, seasonality, and the wholesaler. In comparison apples purchased retail can cost $2-$3 per pound. Oranges by the case may cost anywhere from $18-$28 for a 40 lb. case. A 25 lb. case of fresh tomatoes costs approximately $14-$20. A 50 lb. case of fresh potatoes can cost around $18, far less than the $1-$1.50 per pound price at the grocery stores.
You can also select your desired condition of fruits and vegetables. If you buy your tomatoes green they will last longer, turning red as they ripen over the course of up to a week and a half. Always buy bananas green as they have a brief storage life, usually no more than 6 days. The storage life of these commodities will depend as much on the conditions in which they’re stored. It is advisable to do some research on commodity specific storage methods and recommendations for best results.
By investing in fruits and vegetables you effectively stave off hunger, offset craving for processed foods, snacks, and desserts, and readjust your appetite to eliminate future cravings for toxic foods.
