Can your car run on sugar?

Of course not. It’s a simple machine that runs on gasoline. It can’t run on anything else – water, sugar, soda, preservatives, oil, plastic… You get the picture.

Where our bodies differ is that we are not simple machines. We are a complex system made of smaller complex systems. Our bodies run on water and oxygen. Not gasoline, plastic, sugar, or oil, but water and oxygen. You’ve heard the statistic, right? Our bodies are 60% water. We. Need. Water. Just like we need oxygen (the O in H2O, see how that works?)

A car engine is a simple machine, made to do one thing, turn the tires (very basic idea yall. I am FAR from a mechanic.) If you ask it to run on anything other than gasoline, the effect is almost immediate. It’s not going to run right. Sometimes it won’t even start. The quality of the gasoline counts too. Bad gas will make the engine grossly underperform.

So, how are our bodies different? Because we are a complex system of complex systems. We have built in systems to help us mitigate the effects of running on bad gas, or on plastic, sugar, vegetable oil, etc. But is that the best use of our bodies?

Shouldn’t we honor our body and treat it like the magnificent gift that it is? Don’t we want to give it the absolute best gasoline available? Don’t we deserve the best?

For our bodies, water and oxygen are the best “gasoline”. Our bodies deserve water. Pure, clean water. Not soda. Not sugar. Not oil. Not plastic. Water. Clean, pure water.

Sure, we can run on soda, but not anywhere near as well as we can run on pure, clean water. Some of our systems (namely our digestive system) are so busy flushing out the bad gas – the toxins or the overload of sugar – that it just can’t keep up. That’s when you end up with pain, or exhaustion, or chronic illnesses.

Thank goodness that’s it’s an easy fix!! Find a way to add in more water. Begin crowding out the bad gas because the good gas is sooooooo good. You will immediately begin to feel better. You will have more energy, better memory, less pain, better sleep and more.

So, what does soda have to do with it?

So, what’s soda have to do with it? Better yet, what does quitting drinking soda have to do with living well?

Good question. One that I need to answer besides the obvious – it’s bad for you. It’s got too much sugar, all 101 reasons that I’ve already researched.

How else will quitting drinking soda improve your life? By being the first step. By showing the Universe, God, your Higher Power, Angels, whomever is your guide, by showing them that you care about your body. That you care about the gift that was given to you at that moment that you became you. You have to start somewhere, right?

I’ve been where you are. I’ve had issues that didn’t require medical intervention, but I knew those conditions weren’t something that I just had to accept. You know, things like depression, low energy, low motivation, chronic pain (or daily pain), sleepless nights, gets cold easily. You may have these issues too.

I also knew I wasn’t a “health freak”. A “goodie two-shoes”. I wasn’t “like that.” Basically, I was afraid that I would have to give up my lifestyle completely to be “healthy”. I was afraid that everything I did/thought was wrong and “they”, those healthy people, were smarter, more disciplined than me. They had something that I didn’t, and never would, have. They had stuff that I didn’t want, but I did want to feel good all day everyday. Not just some days, or some parts of the day. I wanted to feel good all day – every day.

By giving yourself the gift of wellness guidance, of accountability, and of support, you can quit drinking soda, thereby taking the first step. You don’t have to take any more steps after that. Just one. Do this one thing and God/theUniverse/yourHigherPower will notice. He/she will reward you. She/he will give you the next step. It will be gentle. It will be graceful. It will be painless. It will be easy.

With my guidance, quitting drinking soda will also be gentle, graceful, painless, and easy. Believe me, I have done it. If I can do it, you can do it. You can take the first step. That’s all you have to do right now. Take the first step.
