Frazzled, Starving and Exhausted! - Part 2

True that!
Believe it or not...this is really true!  You can be fat and literally starving your body.  Just like you can be thin and starving.  Hunger starts on the inside and eventually manifests itself outwardly.  The old adage, don't judge a book by its cover, is certainly true.

How often do you find yourself working away at something, whether it be that damn spreadsheet that you just can't get to work right or those last bits of dust you just can't seem to get out from under that iphone (it really is better than all those other smart phones) screen protector, while you are so damn hungry you're on your 5th dry drink from the large (oh that's right it's a venti) starbucks coffee you had this morning? 

We've all been in this situation, the question is, are you there hourly, daily, every few days?

Seriously, how often are you feeling like you might go postal, lash out, or be subconsciously forced to devour the 3 remaining crispy creme donuts your health conscious co-worker brought in this morning?

I just couldn't take it any longer
If this sounds even remotely familiar...then you are literally starving yourself...which means your body will hold on to your fat tighter than a baby holds on to a blankie.

So here's how to combat this....

Starvation Combat Tip #1 - take a high quality probiotic as soon as you get up every morning (drink 1/2 Liter of water with it) so you will actually digest and absorb the food you eat...don't give me this my digestion is fine nonsense...because unless you never eat sugar, processed food or take medication then it's not fine and you'll be able to tell in a day or two after you start taking the probiotic (no, eating 1 cup of some processed yogurt that was made months ago in a factory is not enough)

I take these every day.

Starvation Combat Tip #2 -  Eat breakfast that contains mostly protein and a small amount of carbs...(i.e. eggs (no they won't raise cholesterol), sausage/bacon/other meat (just get the unprocessed, unpreserved kind)...carbs should be a small amount of fruit (berries are best)...not juice...unless you make it from raw fruit.  Avoid breads and pastries...they screw up your blood sugar and irritate your digestive system...no matter what anyone says.  This tip alone will keep you full until it's time for your next meal.

this is a healthy breakfast
Starvation Combat Tip #3 -  plan your eating and keep healthy snacks with you so you don't get stuck without any food...nuts, fruit, nut butters, jerky (natural kind...no snappin into a slim jim)

you should have these around
Follow these tips and you won't have to worry about STARVING anymore....or looking like the lady at the top!
