In the previous post of this series, I revealed why we are already in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Enough of the madness! It’s time to arm yourself with strategies to survive and thrive in the modern world.
1. Avoid Mindless Eating
This is a great tool I got from my good friend and fellow coach Nate Miller. Before each meal, try practicing this mindfulness routine -
- Why am I eating?
- Is it making me healthy, or is it making me sick?
- Is it worth it?
OWN your decisions, and begin to understand your motivations for those decisions. Brain de-zombified!
2. Remove Environmental Toxins
We need to think about our food as a part of our environment. Our environment modifies our genes, our phenotype, and can exacerbate autoimmune and other inflammatory conditions. Your mission – eliminate grains, legumes, sugar, dairy, and alcohol for 4 weeks. Add them back and see how you look, feel, and perform. Health de-zombified!
