This week I will stick to the topic of nutrition and the myths, which are successfully spread among society and the myths which, people blindly believe! First of all, ask yourself the question, “What results did I get so far, by following the common understanding about healthy eating (i.e. limiting the fat intake, focusing on eating grains and fruits, multiple meals a day in small quantities)?”

If your answer is that by eating like this, you are finally content with your body composition, that you feel energetic, and that you don’t have sweet cravings anymore, you are probably among the minority of people, who have found the balance. But because I highly doubt it, that eating the way I mentioned, you feel in the way I described above, I think that it is about time to ask yourself if this is truly the healthiest and the best way to eat!

Some time ago I wrote this post( “A Calorie Is NOT A Calorie: Why Junk Food In Moderation Is Bad for You” HERE), where I emphasized on the fact that not all calories are created equal and that “everything in moderation” is just a stupid myth. While you are a slave of this myth, you will be on a constant journey, searching for the appropriate diet!


As I mentioned last week, your bodyweight pretty much consists of your muscles, organs and fat. Food is meant to “feed” your muscles and your organs, the so called active tissue, so they can function properly and so they can guarantee your survival as a human being.

How would that matter? The food you eat, either provides your muscles and organs the fuel they need in order to function properly, or it never manages to be directed to them and instead it is being stored as fat.

Imagine it this way- the food, that you eat, is being “kidnapped” and stored as fat, while your active tissue( muscles and organs) are starving.

This will immediately lead to a reaction in your body, which in turn will send signals to your brains, that you need food. Thus, even though you just ate, you will soon feel as if you need to eat again. And not because you haven’t eaten enough, but because you did not eat the right food, which could provide your body with quality fuel!

Here, again, as an evil teacher, who has a grudge on the bad student, I will start the topic about eating too much carbs and how actually they are the one interfering with your progress.

Probably everyone of you is aware that carbs increase levels of insulin. Insulin is the so called storage hormone, which is to blame for the storage of fat in your body. Besides that its role is to regulate the levels of blood sugar. When you eat carbs, this increases the amount of blood sugar, insulin is being produced in order to take away “ the sugar” from the blood. These peak and lowering of insulin is responsible for you feeling tired after you eat, and for the constant hunger you feel. Besides that high levels of insulin interfere with the burning of fats!

Ok, here I want to mention that insulin has a vital importance for survival, but when everything functions normally, and when you are not in the enchanted circle of high levels of insulin, followed by drastic decreases and then drastic peaks!

What happens when your diet consists of too much carbs? The metabolic pathways, for digesting carbs and fats are different and they require different enzymes for digestion. The hormonal changes, which occur in your body, when you eat carbs, increase the production of enzymes, which help for the storage of fats. Everything comes up to the so called lipogenesis, which is the conversion of carbs into fats. During this process, the enzymes convert glucose ( blood sugar) into the fat storage “chemical”- triglycerid.

Here we come again, to the calorie portioning I mentioned last week (HERE and HERE). In this case, fuel is being directed to the production of fats and their storage and it can’t be used as fuel from muscles and organs.

Thus the active tissue does not have enough fuel to function properly, so even though you eat, in reality your body is starving. Your mistake is that you eat the wrong foods. You eat too much junk and carbs.

Today give it a thought what you eat and if you are giving your body enough quality food, and tomorrow I will continue discussing the topic, by explaining you more about the difference in the way your body functions, when your diet contains a lot of fats, and on the contrary when it is a low carb, high fat diet!

I am a ‘something-searcher person” and I have devoted my life to the mission to reveal myself, to improve, to collect the pieces of puzzle in my own nature, so that to give and to receive from life as much as possible. My Life is history, full of broken dreams, falls, disappointments and finally achieved awareness, that it all depends on me and that each opportunity can be a materialized reality. We only have to think and act in a way, which will lead us on the road to its implementation. The most valuable resources we have are our time and health, and our Body is the instrument, through which we use them, to crate the world we live in. I dedicated my life to share myself, the wisdom and experience, which had left after the mistakes I had done. I am doing this in order to help people find their way, which will let them “’reinvent”’ themselves, to restore their health, confidence and trust for life. I wish they could realize their own potential. Training is rehearsal for the life itself; this is the place, where on a few square meters in the IFS you can experience each of the possible sensations- triumph, fall, disappointment, hope, will, weakness, and most of all power. The place, where in “monitoring conditions”” you can remind your body how to move correctly, how to work in your interest. Everything I have tried to achieve through IFS and the trainings is to help people bring back their consciousness, health and freedom to be who they are-without doubting. I have given myself time to re-build and to re-invent myself! Give yourself time as well. Come and train with us in IFS!
