If you’re following us on the Brain Warrior’s Way journey, you’ve already cleaned out your pantry and started purchasing the basics from the shopping list we sent you last week. If not, now is the time. As you begin throwing out the processed foods of old, you may feel like you’re ditching some of your best friends. It’s not uncommon to feel a sense of longing for the food like substances that have taken up residency in the pleasure centers of your brain. This is called food addiction and it is with intention that these foods have been created to keep you addicted.
Have you ever been in, or witnessed someone in a bad relationship? It’s a sad sight to see. The person with the unhealthy attachment keeps loving and chasing someone or something that is clearly abusive, and possibly even causing them emotional and physical harm. Well, guess what? If you “love” food that does not love you back, welcome to an abusive relationship! You’re loving something that is beating the heck out of you on the inside.
We’re going to help you break your unhealthy attachment to the food like substances that have hijacked your taste buds and the pleasure center in your brain. In order to do that you must do the uncomfortable thing today so you can do the extraordinary thing tomorrow. You must say goodbye to your harmful relationships and start forming healthy ones today.
The good news is that the idea of making these changes is actually harder than the changes themselves. If you follow the steps we outline for you, there is no suffering required. You don’t need to “eliminate” or “erase” anything. I’m going to teach you to “replace” your old friends with new ones that love you back.
Follow the list below to create some new healthier relationships that will support you in winning the war for your brain and body.
Replace, Don’t Erase
