Abund-danceWhen you diet, you are working against the law of abundance. We were born into an abundant universe. We were designed to operate in abundance. Like most living things, we flourish in times of abundance.

When you diet you are controlling, restricting, limiting, denying yourself. You are trying to restrict the quantity and control the quality of food you eat. You deny yourself all those yummy things you really love. It is a form of starvation. Your body immediately begins to think lack instead of abundance. When we have an abundance of food and feel secure that sufficient food will come to us on a regular basis, there is no need to store extras as fat. However, when we experience lack with respect to food our body goes into fat storage mode to protect us from the possibility of famine.

In the event of famine, storage of fat could make the difference between life and death. However, most of us in the Western world are in no danger of starving. It seems that the opposite is probably true – we eat too much. But it is empty, valueless food. It is refined, processed junk food that fails to meet our nutritional needs. Too much food, but too little nutrition. (See my blog “Overweight but Starving?” for more on this.) So again, we feel lack instead of abundance. Instead of feeling satisfied when we eat we crave more empty calories.

To live in harmony with the law of abundance I suggest you eat more real foods. What I mean by real foods is raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, grass-fed beef, free range chicken and fish. Don’t deprive yourself though. Don’t feel that you have to eat only these foods to the exclusion of all else. That is dieting and will set you up for failure. Instead ADD these real foods to your existing diet. Real food will fill you up and satisfy you. You will be less hungry, and when your body starts to get the nutrition that it requires it won’t crave those empty calories from processed junk foods so much.

That is why I am such a strong advocate of Low GI eating. You can enjoy a good range of foods, but they are good quality foods that will fill you up and satisfy you. You don’t have to measure, weigh or calculate anything, so you are not controlling, restricting, limiting and experiencing lack. You will gradually find yourself eating more real food and less processed food and your body will start to show the benefits. Low GI eating works in harmony with the law of abundance.

    Well written. Clear, concise and makes good sense to me. Gets rid of that nasty diet word.
