America is a nation of sugar addicts — many unaware of it. It is arguably the nation’s most pervasive addiction.
So what’s your strategy to curb your sugar cravings and reduce your daily intake? Where do you start?
In this YouTube video, “The Organic Tank” Frankie Forza, Mr. Longevity obsessed, talks about fruit as a sugar surrogate:
The Organic Tank also discusses potential pitfalls and problems that can arise when feasting on fruit — under his philosophy, at least.
In The Organic Tank’s optimal eating & peak performance hierarchy, does a fruit-heavy nutrition lifestyle solid or spectacular?
As a teenager growing up in Baltimore, I had a close friend — Christian Albert — whose father, head coach of a Division I football team, imparted a piece of wisdom I never forgot:
“Frank, it’s better to PREPARE for the opportunity — and never get the opportunity — than to get the opportunity and not be PREPARED.”
Rote at first sight.
Like anything else in life, a Healthy Eating Lifestyle requires PREPARATION.
Even a simple meal like this — great for anyone living on a tight budget (cost me less than $4 bucks total) — well there is some prep time involved:
20 mins or so… plus washing the dishes afterward.
I think that prep time, 20 to 30 minutes, is a stumbling block for a lot of people. It’s a fast-paced world, where Convenience is King (or Queen).
Every great achievement happens over time — usually many years. One habit, one action at a time.
One meal at a time.
There is no Excellence in Edibility wiithout exercising patience.
Patience anchors Preparation.
They go hand-in-hand.
Patience must be a priority.
Even with our meal prep.
Generally speaking, more convenient = less healthy.
Today I fasted for 15-16 hours, drank water with lemon, Tulsi and Hibuscus tea, and ate two meals.
This is the second (and final) meal of the day:
Organic Black Beans;
Redmond Sea Salt;
Organic mango slices.
A little prep and patience today,
Means a brighter and healthier you tomorrow.
