I am a week away from completion of my second Whole30 and I have been more diligent this time in the temporary elimination of food groups. Those of you that have completed one know that standard Whole30 involves discovering how your body operates without sugar, grains and dairy for a period of 30 days.
These foods are not bad they are just food and this is not a diet it's a reset. Think of it as an opportunity to discover how your body functions, first without them and then again as you reintroduce them. It empowers you to take control and optimize your food choices in a way that only you can. Through direct input and feedback. Your body,your food, your choice!
We all walk on our path each day and anyone who has walked over the same path daily for some time will observe that the path becomes well worn. The above title is the tag line for my company Intentional Hypnosis. Why did I choose this expression and what does it really mean? This well worn path is evidence of where we have traveled and clearly shows, that we rarely stray off of it. It is often a path that is walked on without thought or intention it's simply automatic. That's actually a good thing and makes it easy to find our way around without getting lost. I talked recently with a good friend of mine Debbie Taylor MA, CHt, a top notch hypnotherapist in Portland Oregon. She uses the well worn path as a metaphor to describe our neural networks. Our brain creates pathways through thought that active neurons and repeatedly firing the same neural networks.
