I strictly avoid packaged foods, as a rule. I am a ‘Gluten Intolerant’ person. My program goes without wheat as a GF eater but I also abstain from corn, soy, and the family of vegetables like tomato, bell pepper, egg plant, potatoes, etc… I have found my health is so much better when I have seriously reduced my inflammation and pain by doing without artificial ingredients and foods of questionable nutritional value. Processed foods have additives like “Natural Flavorings’ which is really an artificial ingredient with a misleading name. It is a formal FDA approved commercial category of patented and hidden things, I always avoid them anyway. I am choosing foods of whole nature, nutritionally dense, antioxidant high, richly flavorful, sweetly verified with sound facts that support, promote, and maintain blood sugar balance. By deleting a steep glycemic spike in my food choices, I have less lethargic moments to want to cheat on my diet, thus giving me a positive outlook for better weight loss.
My rotation elimination diet has proven to me that this selection of edibles must be a pariah because my body hurts every time I try a packaged product, especially the ones with this ingredient in it. I am working to understand the difference between taste and body fueling. My pain is virtually gone when I focus on the fueling with clean whole foods that naturally taste wonderful and ignore the ‘great flavor’ packaged products. In my experience with this amazing rotation diet and learning what hurts me, reduces my energy, and increases insulin rush, has helped me get off a large spectrum of prescription and over the counter pain relievers and antacid gut assistants. I need to stay away from natural whole foods with citric acid and the many packaged food with citric acid as the label listed preservative (IE. Soda, thousands of canned foods, and thousands of vinegar loaded jar filled foods). The joy of living my day pain-free and knowing my gut is healing faster without foods that cause chaos to my digestion and generate migraines to my head is a huge stress relief. .
‘Packaged foods’ is a general phrase of comparative value that is meant to increase the shelf life of the items in that package; with evidence of pure adulterated ouch when added to my diet; it does not improve my health. I can shop in a great whole organic food type of store and still do most of my shopping in the peripheral edges. If and when my digestion returns to a healthy inner lining repaired and energy of a youthful glow then I can gradually add back some of the poisons of packaged foods I willingly give up.
The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
