Most diets fail. Well, honestly, almost all diets fail. The question we must ask is “why?” Do we just need to be stronger, have more willpower, or better discipline? Maybe if we had more of those things or a “better relationship with food” we’d be able to stick with healthy changes over the long haul, right?
Wrong. We are told this story again and again, and despite our best efforts, we’re still fat, sick, and broken.
Here’s the deal: It’s not a personal failing to find modern foods, and habits irresistible. We are genetically wired to eat more and move less — the exact opposite of what we are frequently told. It’s not our fault we are in this situation, but we do need to do something different if we want a different outcome.
Wired To Eat explains how more willpower and better discipline are not the missing pieces to health and fat loss. Our genetics are working against us in the modern world of super tasty foods. In this new book you will learn about neuroregulation of appetite and how hyperpalatable foods can bypass our built in “off switch”, causing us to eat far more than we otherwise would. The genes that made our ancestors successful are setting us up for troubles today. You will learn how sleep, gut health, stress, exercise and community can work with or against our goals of health and leanness.
With Wired To Eat you’ll embark on a program to rewire your appetite and regain your health. We will start with a 30 Day Reset that will normalize the neuroregulation of appetite and help us not only to eat the right amount, but also begin to appreciate simple but delicious meals. After the 30 Day Reset we will use the 7 Day Carb Test to map what specific carbohydrate foods we do best (and worst) with. This will move us beyond one-size-fits-all dietary dogma and into the modern world of Personalized Nutrition. This system will help us take advantage of the amazing machinery that is our human body by using the latest behavior change strategies and simple biometric tracking.
We will also look at one of the most powerful, yet underutilized dietary tools — the ketogenic diet. Although not a panacea, the ketogenic diet may be one of the best options available to address a host of health issues, from type 2 diabetes to neurodegenerative disease.
Wired To Eat includes over 60 whole-food recipes and includes meal plans for the 30 Day Reset as well as for autoimmune and ketogenic diets.
The ancient Greek Aphorism “Know thyself” is a simple yet powerful tool of liberation. The intent is straightforward: If you understand yourself (how you are Wired to Eat) you can begin the process of making the changes you desire.
