How to tell when you are full

One of the most important tricks you will learn is to tell when you’re full — and you must continue this even when you’re off the plan.

Having a diet based predominantly on sugar and highly processed food can mask the body’s natural ability to signal when it is full.

Even worse, many processed foods have been deliberately created to mask your normal satiety (fullness) signals.

Food manufacturers hire food scientists to come up with just the right formula of fat + sugar + salt to trick your body into thinking that you aren’t full.

This is why it seems as though you can eat a lot of junk food without ever really feeling full, or having a very short-term satiety. Once you remove sugar and refined grains from your diet and instead fill up on healthy fats, you allow your body to naturally reset so that it can send satiety signals.

Feeling deprived could possibly be the greatest obstacle in your transition from a sugary world to the land of LCHF (low-carbohydrate, healthy fat).

It could lead to rebellion, resentment and ultimately falling back into unhealthy sugar-infused old habits.

It is important not to think of yourself as being deprived of sugar and carbs, but that you are empowering your health. Don’t say to yourself: ‘I am not allowed sugar’ but keep remembering to think: ‘I am choosing my health and wellbeing by filling myself with nourishing foods.’

This is an extract from an article originally written for the Daily Mail:

    My name is Ruth Ann and I am a sugar addict. It’s true, I know very well the perils of sugar addiction. I am now a lchf/keto follower which changed my life. I also now am obsessed with my health and love having health markers to track my improvements.

    I’m writing to see if you would be interested in joining the TeloYears affiliate program and have your telomere lengths tested. Have you heard of TeloYears? Here’s a little about them…

    TeloYears was founded by a group of scientist, including the winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine for her work in telomere biology. They recently recently launched TeloYears, a simple, accurate genetic test that lets you track your cellular age based on your telomere length.

    I think the TeloYears at home test kit would be a great addition to your 8 week plan. Your followers could test before starting and then test months later to see if their changes improved their cellular age.

    I would love to work with you, please let me know if I can answer any questions you may have. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Have a wonderful day!
