The Lies of Obesity: What Your Body Wants You To Know

Eating

This reality is a huge perpetrator of the lies of obesity, and it’s why so many people are frustrated with diets, the so called “experts”, themselves and their bodies.

Could you be unknowingly functioning from some of these lies?  Here are three of the many lies you may have bought.

Lie number 1.
Our bodies are unconsciousness objects that should bend to our will.  What if your body IS actually conscious?  What if it knows what is best for it?  The idea that we should “have dominion” over our bodies springs from religious tenants that tell us we are far greater than our bodies, as well as the earth and the animal kingdom.  Does that seem heavy or light to you?  How much of a superior attitude do you have to take to believe that? Has that attitude ever worked for you?

Once we actually acknowledge that our bodies are consciousness, all kinds of new possibilities open up.  Partnering with our bodies, instead of trying to lord it over them, takes us from the place of antagonism to a space of cooperation.  Can we over ride our bodies and their knowing?  Absolutely, though the results are seldom what we think they should be and the results seldom last.

What if you honored your body rather than exercised power over it?  How much could that change for you?

Lie number 2.
The experts know more than you do about how you should treat your body.  Why should anyone know more about what’s good for your body than you?  Doesn’t the idea of imposing someone else’s regime on your body seem a little ludicrous?  Most of us were taught early on that we can’t trust ourselves to know what we know, and we should always trust the “experts”.  This insures that we will be able to be controlled, and that we will never step into the communion that’s possible with our bodies.  What if you were willing to begin to know what was true for you, which includes the capacity to communicate with and listen to your body?  What if you became your own “expert?

Lie number 3
Curing obesity requires will power.  Willpower is a highly touted concept in this reality but let’s take a closer look at what it actually entails. The idea implies that we should come to a decision, then impose it with what amounts to force, effort and violence on ourselves or our bodies.  Notice there’s no question in “willpower”, nor is there any possibility of change.  How well do you respond when someone tries to force something on you?  If you’re like most of us, forcing creates a huge amount of resistance and a kind of “to heck with you” attitude!  Using will power also necessitates us overriding and cutting off our knowing, if it contradicts what we have already decided we should do.  If you use will power in connection with your body, what are the chances your body is apt to do what you want it to do? Probably slim to none!  All that will power does is to set up resistance and reaction and a battle.  Are you willing to let go of will power in favor of question and knowing?

These are just three of the may lies that this reality perpetrates about obesity.  Are you interested in learning more?

Access Consciousness is presenting a groundbreaking tele-series on the Lies Of Obesity. Could exposing these lies create a totally different way for all of us to relate to and work with our bodies?  What if the failure to change what goes on with our bodies has little to do with what we eat and how much we exercise or don’t exercise? Gary Douglas, the founder of Access Consciousness and Donnielle Carter, co-author of Right Body For You, have assisted thousands of people in successfully changing their relationships with their bodies from one of force and antagonism to one of joyful cooperation and communion.

What if the kingpin of all of this had to do with judgment? Donnielle says:  “When I see a person who’s obese I never see them covered with fat, I see them covered with judgment.” She goes on to say: “Anyone who is judging their body (and who doesn’t?) is actually being abusive to it.”  It’s this judgment (abuse) that sets up the estrangement between ourselves and our bodies.

Whether it’s about  gaining enormous amounts of weight or our bodies breaking down, learning how to stop judging our bodies creates a completely different possibility.

What if obesity isn’t difficult to change?  What if gorging on judgment is more of a killer than gorging on food?

Are you interested in a new paradigm that will give you the tools and information to successfully alter how your body shows up?

What if your body could be your best friend? This tele-series is for anyone who has an issues with their body, and will invite you to all of the magic your body can be!

Kid Chef Eliana Celebrates!

Kid Chef Eliana recently celebrated her 1st VoiceAmerica Kids Network Birthday!  For her anniversary show she interviewed world renowned food icon, Chef Paul Prudhomme.  Chef Paul Prudhomme is an internationally recognized name in the culinary industry. He is a television star, a cookbook author, a restaurateur, and a spice mogul. He has propelled the distinctive cuisine of his native Louisiana into the international spotlight and continues to push the limits by creating exciting and new American and international dishes. Chef Paul learned the importance of using the freshest ingredients while cooking at his mother’s side and continues to use only earth’s finest harvests. Chef Paul was always adventurous. His strong curiosity of life and cultural customs motivated him to leave Louisiana in his early 20’s and travel across the United States to experience every culinary environment possible. From an Indian reservation all the way to the finest, five-star restaurant, Chef Paul learned to love, appreciate and blend the flavors of his younger years with those of many other cultures.

For more on the interview, listen on demand here!

12 year old Kid Chef Eliana, host of the show ‘Cool Kids Cook‘ on the VoiceAmerica Kids Channel,  grew up in a family of cooks. With grandparents from Cajun Louisiana, the Philippines, Cuba, and Honduras, Eliana’s recipes have international flair. She loves traveling and spending time in the kitchen with her family. Eliana says, “Cooking is so much fun. You can be creative and invent new recipes.” Eliana’s first cookbook, “Eliana Cooks! Recipes for Creative Kids” was released in October 2010. She is awaiting the publication of her second cookbook, “Cool Kids Cook: Louisiana.”

At ten years old, Kid Chef Eliana was chosen as one of 13 Latinos profiled in a museum exhibit at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum. She is featured in a book called The Parents’ Guide to Raising CEO Kids by Dr. Jerry Cook and Sarah L. Cook. She has been a guest chef on Eyewitness Morning News on WWL-TV in New Orleans and has cooked with Celebrity Chef John Besh.
