In many ways this blog leads me down an unhealthy path. Being a blogger involves a lot of sitting around. Additionally, I’m often faced with many temptations. Who can resist a delicious box of decadent chocolates and/or salty snacks when they’re delivered right to your doorstep? And that’s the point of The Prime, a book written by Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary. It’s nearly impossible to resist some of the toxins that are so addicting in many foods we are used to eating.
Today this blog is helping me along on my journey in getting healthy once and for all. You see, it’s not just weight loss that I’m after here. It’s health. It’s mental clarity. Weight loss is just a natural side effect of The Prime’s 4-stage system.
We’ve heard about the studies before. Many foods can be just as addictive as drugs and science has proven it. The problem is, our bodies adapt to anything whether good or bad. Once our bodies get used to what we’re already addicted to, we want more of it. Suddenly that big mac and fries isn’t enough to satisfy our cravings so we need that ice cream sundae too. This particular excerpt from the book really hit me:
Certain foods, especially processed and restaurant foods, contain a virtually irresistible mix of flavors and ingredients that light up the same parts of your brain as addictive drugs.
The Prime really resonated with me. As I read along I found myself nodding in agreement with all of the symptoms resulting from an addiction to chemicals and preservatives. I have been experiencing things like brain fog, frequent illness, painful gastritis and aches and pains and a thing called ama.
But the premise of this plan is not so much what you eat, but how well you digest it. And according to The Prime, once you start to cleanse and free yourself from the toxin load, cravings for them will cease to exist. This is not just about what you eat; it’s a body and mind approach to a healthy lifestyle.

I definitely have an addiction to sugar. Years ago, I used to drink soda several times a week and I used to get migranes. Then I cut out all soda and the migranes stopped!

I am getting older, want to eat healthier and yes I am very concerned about Toxin’s in my body and I think knowledge to know how to do that would be a big thing for me. I do believe toxins play a big part of how we feel sluggish , bloated, fatigue, I think toxin’s drain us … I want to live my life in the best shape I can be and this would be a great tool to help me do that.
