Quote 'It is more important to eat some carbohydrates at breakfast, because the brain needs fuel right away, and carbohydrate is the best source.' By: Andrew Weil
Warning! Warning! Warning! If this article is going to hurt your brain, please shut off your computer! Don't say I didn't warn you! If you still want to continue reading the article, please sit tight, fasten your seat belt and let's together blast off! OK? Thanks!
This message shoots off with an unvarnished and direct truth! Please seriously think about it. If you are overweight or are constantly fighting the battle of the bulge. And is guilty of some of these symptoms below, you may be a carbohydrates addict.
Trust me, many of these symptoms have been cited in literary thousand s of interviews with people looking for weight loss program. In most cases, the symptoms can be attributed to carbohydrates addition.
Without wasting any more ink with long intro, let's start off with some piercing, down to earth questions! Aright?
For yours and my sake, just play along with me. All of these are focusing on only the main symptoms. Hence do you ever experience all or some of these symptoms?
Question number One. A frequent focus on eating?
Do you spend a great deal of time thinking about food, dieting or your weight? It's not as much as your body that triggers you to think about food. It's you total mental makeup that urge you to think about food most of the time. Our body is wired up to hunt for food when we are hungry! The trouble begins when body and mind is not highly tuned within themselves. You can bet your eye balls on this fact. Right?
The second question is just as important or even more vital. Truthfully answered, we may truly discover if we are indeed a hopeless carbohydrates addicts. Let's roll along!
Question number two. Lack of satisfaction or the desire to eat again a couple of hours after eating, not matter what you eat?
Read on and play along with me! Are you hungrier two hours after eating than if you hadn't eaten at all? This is yet another critical sign to discover whether we are addicted to consume simple carbohydrates food.
This could be a 'chicken or egg' situation! Because we love to ear simple delicious carbohydrates. And we are addicted to eat more of such food that gives us instant energy but do not have a 'bulk' effect on our stomach.
Of course complex carbohydrates in forms of beans, fruits and peas can add bulk to our food but seldom is it attractive to the taste buds.
Simple enough for you? If 'yes' let's move along to the third questions on carbohydrates additions.
Question number 3. A sense of fatigue or tiredness?
Let's pause here a moment! You may ask 'Why are there so many questions in this small article?" In truth, this observation has been asked so many times that I lost count of it. Believe me; these questions are yet so important. Important because it help us to get the roots of our overweight problem. Let's say, 'Hit the nail on the head' OK? Can we continue then?
Do you get a sensation of sluggishness, almost of drugged after eating? Do you feel like lying down, perhaps even drifting off for a nap? Do you put off work or planned activities because you just don't have the energy for them? Do you get hungry or tired in the middle of the afternoon? If your answer is 'positive' it's high time to see a medical specialist. 'A stitch in time saves nine' Agreed?
Question Number 4. An unexplained feeling of anxiety or anger?
Question, question and more questions? Hope you do not think that this is a questions and answers session. Or the writer is a busy body! As said earlier, it's the end results that count. Hence, the saying still holds true 'Prevention is better Than Cure'.
Why wait? Let's continue with more questions. Do you have a certain unexplained nervousness or irritability? A desire to be alone? Do you find that you are angry of blaming yourself? If you answer again is a 'YES", then we suggest strongly to see a dietician who is also a medical specialist. It is not our place here to refer you to any particular medical specialist. Your friendly 'Google' will do a better job for you. Period!
The last question may be the final one, but rest assured it must be read word for word. This could be the 'magic' bullet that can solve your weight loss problems.
Question Number No.5. A heightens emotionality?
Don't be surprised that the last question is really no big secrets, no great luck nor a grand slam home run. It's simply this! Do you find yourself feeling sad or weepy without reason? Do you ever experience a feeling of hopelessness, an intense feeling of loneliness; a generalized feeling of fear? Do you ever go to extreme with a feeling of euphoria or heightened happiness, only to feel inexplicable sad or hopeless? Lucky for you there is still hope if you a subjected to constant heighten emotionality! I speak with great truth because I have travelled this narrow and arduous path myself!
To reinforce what I have earlier said, let's recap! OK? The essential important discovery questions are firstly 'Do you frequently focus on eating? Secondly, 'Do you experience a lack of satisfaction or the desire to eat again a couple of hours after eating, not matter what you eat?' Thirdly, 'Are you subjected to some sense of fatigue or tiredness?' Fourthly, 'Exposed to frequently unexplained feeling of anxiety or anger?" And finally, 'Do you suffer from a frequent seasons of heightens emotionality. With this checklist, we do hope that you now fully grasped this article well.
In conclusion, allow me to share my most inner thoughts with you. In the decade's years of weight loss, I have come to expect that a size small will fit.

For the first time in my life, I feel and look 'manly' Full stop! That's all I have to say at this juncture! Thanks!
