Mind Your Own Mind
Kilr Kravings. It's not just about the food. We krave food because it tastes good. And often there's is an emotional charge associated with a good memory, that's comfort food. But what if you're kraving food that isn't healthy and you know it isn't good for your body but you do it anyway?
Sometimes it seems we have two voices working on our behalf. There's the voice of reason that wants to protect and preserve us. Then there's the other voice. You know, the one that says, "Eat it. Don't worry, it isn't that bad." When you listen to the voice of the latter, all common sense goes out the window, until you're elbow deep in a bag of chips wondering how you ate them all. How? Easy, with years of training, most likely in front of a television set. Unconscious eating is not only common, it's chronic and it's a bad habit.
Have you ever wondered if your Kilr Kravings may be an addiction? Could we get addicted to potato chips? Cookies? Soda?
You bet. The commercial food industry uses 10,000 different chemical additives to guarantee it. It's no accident, and neither are the television ads.
Your kilr kravings are a part of a deceptive plan to keep you hooked, line and sinker. We've bought the lies and fantasy tales that their low-cal, fun and healthy junk food will make us "cry tears of joy," it's "finger lickin' good," and "no one can eat just one..." All designed to deceive you and keep you coming back for more.
This kind of mass manipulation has been going on for years. In fact, these successful albeit, ruthless profiteers are using a playbook; written by the master propagandist himself, Edward Bernays. His philosophy was simple: "The main idea behind engineering of consent is that the public should not be aware of the manipulation taking place."
Now that you know this you can look at your choices and every major decision while asking yourself, "Is this my thought or what I've been told to believe?" And also ask yourself this, "Just how much do I care about myself?" And if you don't care, why not?
Mass media keeps you distracted from thinking your own self-preserving, self-loving thoughts. And from creating a life that is satisfying, healthy and most importantly, happy.
