No matter how long they’ve been with us, with self-discipline and commitment – and help from our friends and peer group – we can systematically weed bad eating habits out of our lives.

In his new blog post at http://www.PerWickstrom.com, Per Wickstrom, a pioneer who has developed a natural approach to treatment that includes protocols for addressing emotional, behavioral, spiritual and physical aspects of addiction, is focusing on the importance of eating healthy.
Lamenting the alarming frequency at which people – especially children – eat at fast food restaurants and gorge on so-called meals that are loaded with fat, sodium, sugar and other blatantly unhealthy additives and ingredients, Per Wickstrom advises people who want to eat healthy to take the following steps:
- Get rid of junk by refusing to buy it in the first place. Self-discipline and deciding on a menu before going grocery shopping – not during or after – is key to achieving this fundamental healthy eating goal.
- Read the ingredients and be wary of labels like “natural” or “sugar free.” Many foods that appear to be healthy and nutritious are anything but.
- Pay attention to any link between foods, allergies and mental state. Many foods lead to lethargy and depression, which not only diminish quality of life, but weaken the immune system – which can open the door to everything from the common cold to more serious ailments, including chronic and serious conditions down the road.
- Load up on “superfoods” that are low in calories, but high in anti-oxidants and other vitally important raw nutrients. What’s more, many of today’s superfoods are also super-delicious, such as smoothies and shakes.
Ultimately, Per Wickstrom sees the shift towards healthy eating as a matter of forming good habits – and weeding out bad ones.
“No matter how long they’ve been with us, with self-discipline and commitment – and help from our friends and peer group – we can systematically weed bad eating habits out of our lives,” commented Per Wickstrom, who struggled with addiction in his youth and knows all too well how bad habits can quickly become a matter of life and death. “Plus, developing good eating habits isn’t just good for the body, mind and soul – it’s also good for the bank account! People can save thousands on medical bills, qualify for lower insurance rates, and spend a lot less than they realize on junk food. The savings really add up!”
