Simplify To Become Physically and
In this episode, I discuss how living ‘The European Lifestyle’, or TEL, is the easiest approach to regain physical and emotional health. Why? Because, in general, Europeans are not so ‘rushed’ and, in doing so, become mindless. When mindlessness meets stress, the brain secretes stress hormone messages to the body, which spikes insulin. When insulin is secreted, glucose gets shuttled into the cell, and when there is an overabundance of glucose, it is stored as fat.
When we lack connection, peace and happiness, we naturally are more prone to stress. Chronic stress and, consequently, chronic insulin spikes make us dumber and fatter. Chronic insulin also occurs by other means. Constant snacking and excessive carbohydrates in the form of simple sugars and processed foods, which lack fiber, also encourage high insulin spikes. Toxins in the form of pesticides and herbicides and the absence of nutrient-dense foods are other ways our metabolism gets hijacked.
In summary, there is not just one factor that causes us to lose the battle of the bulge; there are many.
