How to Make Raw Vegetables Taste as Good as McDonald’s French Fries

frenchfries  In my last blog entry I wrote about how the stories you tell yourself about every person, place, thing, or circumstance create their meaning and value to you.  The stories you tell about things make them “good” or “bad” for you.  Experiences do not come to you in a pre-existing state of “good” or “bad” (you get to decide).

Certainly there are people, places, things, and circumstances which are more challenging to label “good” (and, conversely, to label “bad”), but that does not mean the choice is still not yours to label them such.

I Tell Stories About My Food?  What Does This Mean, For a Person with Unwanted Weight?

So, when it comes to weight loss, what does this mean for you?  How can you lose more weight by using this knowledge?

Since it’s important to feel good about anything you do (if you want that action to have the desired positive impact), as a person who wishes to lose unwanted weight it’s important for you to begin telling yourself good-feeling stories about the actions you’re taking.  If you want those actions to have positive impact upon your weight-loss efforts, that is.

And I assume you do.  Otherwise, why would you undertake any weight-loss actions in the first place?

How to Change Your Stories and Make Carrots Taste as Good as French Fries (Eventually)

My best advice on this subject is not to try telling yourself unbelievably good-feeling stories to begin with.  Especially if you’ve been telling yourself bad-feeling stories about that action for a long while.

In other words, if you’ve been telling yourself bad-feeling stories about eating certain healthy foods (like, “Raw vegetables are kinda yucky…I really don’t like them.”), it will not be believable to start telling yourself, “I LOVE raw vegetables and I don’t even want to eat fried foods any more!”  That’s not realistic and won’t actually feel good to you (because you won’t really believe it).

Instead, simply choose a better feeling story to begin.  Such as “Even though I don’t really love the taste of raw vegetables (compared to fried food), I do enjoy the knowledge that I am loving my body by eating them and nourishing it in a very healthy way.”

You might even add something like, “And I can believe that, over time, I can learn to enjoy the taste of raw vegetables a lot more than I do now.  If I simply stick to eating them and telling myself these better-feeling stories about them (instead of the bad-feeling ones I had been telling myself)”.

How Long Do I Have to Wait Until Carrots Taste as Good as French Fries?

Try this technique today with some aspect of your weight-loss efforts and give yourself a few days before you make a judgment about its effectiveness.  I promise you that, given a little time, you will find yourself feeling better, more positive, about that action.  When you feel better about your actions, your results will be much more positive.

It’s the law of our universe.  Nothing less than quantum physics, the most precise and accurate science ever created, guarantees this for you!

And when you’re ready to take your storytelling to a new level, finally losing your unwanted weight by making full use of these techniques and more, make a small investment in yourself today.

Why a Moment of Feeling Like You’re Going to Vomit Can Actually Help You Lose Weight

drinking-water-standards  Here’s a specific weight loss action I’ve been taking for about six years.  I feel great about it, so it has a wonderfully positive effect upon my weight management.  I drink a gallon of water every day.

I Didn’t Need to “Keep My Ass Alive”, But I Did Want It To Stay Small

It started when a friend of mine showed me a book called “98 Degrees: Keeping Your Ass Alive”.  That book is about survival in extreme situations, but had something in it you might find interesting.

The author claimed that the only way to actually hydrate your body is to drink so much water, at one time, that you force your stomach to bypass digesting it and release it into your intestinal tract (where, he wrote, it is absorbed directly into your body).   He said that, to do this, you  drink water until you feel like throwing up (you’ll feel that way briefly, he said, until your stomach releases the water).

I can’t vouch for the medical/scientific accuracy of the author’s statements, but I can tell you that I was curious enough to try it.

You Seriously Chugged Water Like That?  Were You Crazy or Just Curious?

The very first time I did it (about six years ago) I experienced everything he described.  I could even clearly feel it when my stomach released the water into my intestines!

What I’ve found from following this practice is that my intestines get “flushed” on a daily basis.  I can also report that, since I’ve been doing this every day for the last six years, I have only been ill a few times (literally), my hair and nails grow faster, my urine is usually very clear (a sign of proper hydration), and I do not experience pangs of thirst during the day.  I’m convinced enough about the practice that it is a daily part of my weight loss “actions” (that I feel very good about – an important point!).

How I Keep the Louisville Water Company in Business

Yes, believe it or not, for the past six years, each day, I drink a gallon of water.  Every day, unless I’m stopped by unavoidable circumstances (I’ve even figured out ways to do it when making long car trips and don’t want to stop to pee every 40 minutes).  And I make a point to drink the gallon quickly, chugging at least a large portion of it to experience the “too full” phenomenon I described earlier.

I have greatly enjoyed the results – obviously enough to make the practice part of my everyday routine.  It’s a fairly non-invasive, easy-to-do part of my routine, too.  Each day I fill up a gallon jug and chug it.

Perhaps you might give this a try and see if you like the results too.  I just finished today’s gallon and I feel great!

If I Can Do This, Believe Me, You Can Do Even Better!

  In 1996, when my first son was born, my weight had ballooned to about thirty pounds over what I weighed in college.  I was very unhappy about it.

And all this while I was trying lots of diets and exercising regularly.

Are We Simply Destined to Accept Our “Fate” and Fall Apart as We Age?

I had friends, my age and older, who implied that my weight gain was “just what happens to people as they get older”.  In other words, “Get used to it, Greg…there’s nothing you can do about it…it happens to everybody”.  I loved my friends, but I did not want to accept their advice!

I had been writing with my dad, Clifford Kuhn, M.D. (aka The Laugh Doctor) about humor and its role in healing, health, and personal productivity.  And I had just gotten tipped off on an amazing science called quantum physics.  So, instead of giving up and giving in, I became determined to research science and discover a way of living that would allow me to feel good about a healthy body.  Rather than find a “diet plan”, I made it my business to find a new way of life through quantum physics.

There Had to Be a Way and I Was Determined to Find It

And find it I did.  I wasn’t able to assemble all the pieces right off the bat; I ran into a lot of dead-ends and roadblocks along the way.  But at each “wrong turn” I redoubled my efforts and went back to my research into quantum physics.  Along the way I not only lost my unwanted weight and learned to keep it off with relatively little stress, but I also uncovered new paradigms from quantum physics upon which I now base my life.

And, oh, what a difference those new paradigms make!

That’s me in the photo, by the way, watching my son jump into the pool.  No more spare tire and I’ve enjoyed my healthy body and desired weight now since 1997.  I’m 45 years old and, believe it or not, feel great about taking my shirt off at the pool!

You Know What Happens When You Change Your Beliefs?  You Start Seeing Yourself Differently and Your Capacity Grows!

A few years ago, I began to branch out as an author and write about these new paradigms.  My first book (the first in a series) uses these new paradigms from quantum physics to address the challenge of losing unwanted weight.  I am very excited that you are interested in this topic, and motivated to try these new paradigms in your life, because I know they will work for you too!

Why do I know this?  Because these paradigms are not based upon any pie-in-the-sky philosophies, nor are they based on a strict diet (because no diet will work forever).  These paradigms are based upon nothing less than the most accurate and reliable science ever created.

When you truly apply these paradigms, your failure to lose your unwanted weight will be as unnatural as the sun rising on the Western horizon.  That just can’t happen because its scientifically “impossible”!

Because, believe me, I am no master of will power and I am no more special than you.
