I came to a realization today, more clear than it has ever been. My failure to really transition my diet the way I have desired is a lack of faith. Nothing more.
Now I hardly have what one would call a bad diet. If you want to talk percentages, mine may be in the top five percent of the population at large, give or take, in terms of how healthy it is.
But it’s not where I know it should be.
And it is not a physical issue. Yes, there are physical cravings and the like. But I’ve found they’re never that severe.
Nor is it mental, really. Yes, the mind plays tricks, and tells us what we want to hear, about everything, diet–especially–included. And there are what we may call “mental” cravings, and these can be more severe. But they’re certainly not insurmountable.
There’s only one other key realm, and that’s spiritual. You could say emotional too, but I consider that an outgrowth of the mental.
