Thomas Jefferson said, I’m a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” These words very much apply to diet and health. Having a great figure and being at your ideal weight isn’t just about luck; it’s about working hard day in and day out.
I hear so many people complain about having a slow metabolism. Do you know there is an evolutionary reason for this? When the Pilgrims came to America, the people who died during the winter where those with fast metabolisms because they required a greater food intake. People with slow metabolisms survived.
The issue is that there is so much abundance around us that we’ve grown accustomed to having food whenever we want it. We as Americans are not used to feeling the sensation of pain or hunger. When we feel pain, we take a pill. When we feel the first hunger pang, we eat. Then we wonder why we’re overweight and unhappy.
As I’ve written about in past newsletters, when I’ve lived in Europe, Asia or Latin America, people eat 3 meals per day and sometimes a small afternoon snack. That’s it! We are the only country that grazes and we’re also the only country that suffers with an epidemic rate of hypoglycemia, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and obesity. Not a coincidence.
People who have the most success on the JOOS Cleanse and lose weight permanently are those who follow the cleanse. For some people, the weight doesn’t pour off immediately. We as Americans are so used to instant gratification that if something doesn’t work immediately, we give up and look for the next solution.
We Americans have lost the virtue of patience and mindfulness. If you truly follow the JOOS Cleanse, it will work. You can realize your weight loss goals. The JOOS Cleanse is about rebooting your system and establishing healthy eating habits to that you will take off the weight permanently.
