Inflammation? Could it be the culprit?

Geeking out this FriYAY…🤓

Are you feeling tired, brain fogged, puffy, bloated? Having headaches? Is your skin breaking out? Are you holding on to extra weight no matter how much you exercise or calories you restrict?

We keep being told that in order to loose weight we just need to eat less and exercise more, BUT – inflammation plays a HUGE role in all of these things!

Research shows that a significant contributor to chronic inflammation comes from what we eat. When we eat inflammatory foods daily, we are constantly turning on our body’s inflammatory response. Over time, this incessant inflammatory response can lead to weight gain, drowsiness, skin problems, digestive issues, and a host of diseases, from diabetes to obesity to cancer.

If your weight-loss efforts have plateaued before you’ve reached your goals, try eliminating some of the following inflammatory foods from your diet and see how your body responds. You might be surprised. 😲

Refined starches and sugary foods: they aren’t dense in nutrients, and they’re easy to overeat, which can lead to weight gain, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol (all related to inflammation). Sugar causes the body to release inflammatory messengers called cytokines. Soda and other sweet drinks are main culprits. Anti-inflammatory diet experts often say you should cut out all added sugars, including agave and honey.

High-fat and processed red meat (like hot dogs): these have a lot of saturated fat, which can cause inflammation if you get more than a small amount each day.

Butter, whole milk, and cheese: the problem is saturated fat. Instead, eat low-fat dairy products.

French fries, fried chicken, and other fried foods: cooking them in vegetable oil doesn’t make them healthy. Corn and other vegetable oils all have omega-6 fatty acids. We need some omega-6s, but if we get too much, we throw off the balance between omega-6s and omega-3s and end up with more inflammation.

Coffee creamers, margarine, and other trans fats: labeled “partially hydrogenated oils” – these raise LDL cholesterol, which causes inflammation. There is no safe amount to eat, stay away from them.

Wheat, rye, and barley – GLUTEN. People who have celiac disease need to avoid gluten. But for everyone else, whole grains are beneficial.

Remember – everyone’s different. While a certain food might cause inflammation for one person, that isn’t the case for the next. Not all ‘diets’ fit all!

‘Exogenous ketones’ provide benefits such as enhancing cognitive function, reducing inflammation, controlling blood sugar, mitigating food cravings, and increasing energy levels by reducing inflammation – inhibiting inflammasone proteins that induce inflammatory responses in your body. 🤯

So, let the testing begin…eliminate and replace some of the known inflammatory foods from your diet with more nutrient dense foods and see what happens…how your body responds. It’s worth a shot…to looking and feeling “better.”

Joy – no matter what.

32ED3921-5DA9-4E3E-9894-FDFDEF20A4E1Tuesday morning.  I hit snooze and when the second alarm rang…I rolled over and immediately felt the aches and pains from yesterday’s workout…uggg AND what I choose to do next, set the tone for my entire morning.  I gave power to my natural cynical feelings of dread instead of my choice to live spirit led.  I was snappy with Jaye, frustrated with Joel and then, they were out the door…off to work and school.  I wasn’t feeling good…my body was aching and I was feeling gloomy.  I didn’t like it and I was feeling guilty for not being very loving this morning. Years ago…this is how I lived every day.  Reactively allowing my days to be controlled by my feelings from whatever the world through my way.  But, I’m not that woman anymore and God was stirring in my heart a recognition of that in me this morning.  JOY…it’s a choice and a practice, sista and it doesn’t come easily to me.  Some days, I recognize those old patterns rising up without much reflection and other days…they sneak up on me and before I know it and the day is gone…leaving me feeling full of regret.  This morning, it wasn’t clear to me until I did ONE thing that changed my entire morning.  I took a walk.  One healthy choice to unplug, go out into nature, get quiet and allow God to speak to me.  In the awakening of the morning, I was overwhelmed by the sounds and sites – unspeakable and undeniable clarity that overcame me and brought me back to a place of joy and gratitude.  JOY – no matter what.

It’s never too late to start your day over…not feeling good?  Is God stirring something inside of you that you’re just not sure about?  Choose one healthy thing…breathe, get quiet, pray, do something GOOD for yourself – open your heart and your ears…allow God to do what He does best.  Start OVER.

Thank you Lord for meeting me exactly where I am today and always.  For never giving up on me and for your complete love and faithfulness.  I love You and I need You.  Allow my story to give Glory and Honor to You, Lord.

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ. ~ Philippians 1:9-10 (NIV)
