  • cant stop eating crap !!!!

    i know about the primal lifestyle for like a year alrdy but i still didnt manage to stick with it.. its the other way around, im getting more and more addicted to sugar.
    I think i gained like 20kg (~40lbs) the past year and it doesnt seem to stop..
    My dad has diabetes so im in a danger zone.. even my doctor told me alot of times (even before i was fat) not to get fat because of that.
    Alot of times i told myself to stop eating shit but as soon as i have a chance to eat some sugary thing i forget about it..
    How do i stick with the primal nutrition? for life..

      Cut out wheat and processed foods to start.
      Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

        Stop buying crap. If it's not in your home, you can't eat it.

          Quit whining and just do it.

            Yep, just stop eating crap. Throw it out. Don't buy it. Don't put yourself in situations where you're around it. When you can say no, then you're safe to be near it again. Just don't buy it anymore.

            For me, I found that educating myself about what shitty food does to my beautiful bod is enough. I don't WANT to eat that shit now. I know what it will do to me. I HIGHLY recommend you read Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas. She gets into the why biology and chemistry-wise. It's great.

              All of the above... You have got to go a few days without junk, exercise some, drink lots of filtered water and you'll start making better decisions.

                Yes you can!!!!

                It's a CHOICE.
                No one but YOU can stop putting crap into your grocery cart and into your mouth.

                How do I know this?
                Because I also made that CHOICE.

                  When I made the decision to change (that's key there - actually making the decision) then I did myself a favour.

                  I spent one week planning meals for an entire month. Then I ditched everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) that did not fit with this way of eating. Then I went to the store and started to restock. Basically, the day I threw everything out was the day I started.

                    Nobody's forcing you to eat healthy. Do what you want.

                    And just wondering, how does the bad food get in your house? The magic junk-food-fairy?

                        For me, thinking about the possible (and for you, real) side effects of continuing to eat the way you do was well and truly enough motivation to stop eating the crap.

                        So do you like being able to see? How about walking, is that something you want to be able to do? Would spending time on a dialysis machine be something you'd rather pass on? (my father lost a kidney, not sure why, but I'm sure he loved the end result - not being able to hold on when he needed to pee). Stroke? heart attack?

                        These would well and truly be my motivators! (I only had to envisage sitting in a chair, drooling on myself because of dementia. And not knowing who these strange people were around me, my children and their families)

                          Maybe get your hands on some primal/paleo reading material to keep you interested and motivated (and learn WHY this is a better path to choose). When I start to fall off and crave some cake, I try to re-educate with a good read!

                            Start by stocking up your house with good primal foods. Commit to eating big primal meals every day for a week. Lots of protein, fat and veggies and each meal. By setting your body up with good foods it will be easier to resist the junk food.

                            You can also slowly transition your junk food. So keep some chocolate covered nuts, berries and cream, and other primal treats around. If you feel the overwhelming need for junk food start with those foods. Your cravings will reduce with time and these foods are free of the worst offenders.

                            And always remember to have some prepared foods around - make a whole chicken, pulled pork, or whatever and freeze single size portions and keep some frozen veggies handy. If you are hungry and didn't prepare well, you can quickly heat these foods and have a primal meal before you cave in


                            Remember, you don't have to be perfect! Just plan for some complete primal meals. Promise yourself that even if you eat some garbage, the next meal will be primal.

                            Good luck.
