Do you feel sluggish, experience frequent headaches, crave unhealthy foods, have lackluster skin, suffer from poor sleep or find it difficult to lose weight? If you answered “yes” to any of these, you may have fallen into a Junk Food Funk.
At one time, I would have answered “yes” to all of the above questions. Although I was exercising regularly, I didn’t feel healthy. It wasn’t until I realized that the junk I consumed was keeping me from living my best life that I began to search for ways to make a change. I felt held back by excess weight, exhaustion, headaches, brain fog and many other symptoms that I simply couldn’t explain.
At first, I didn’t really know how to describe how I felt. I visited my doctor several times and, although I could list off my symptoms, I couldn’t really explain the overall feeling I was having. After some time I realized that the best way to summarize all the symptoms I was having was to tell the doctor I felt as if I was in a “funk” or “funked up.”
So what is this so-called funk? For me, the funk was tied to being out of balance and teetering on what could easily turn into a full-blown health crisis.
If you feel “funked up” or like you’re in a “funk” maybe its time to take action. Put yourself first and give your body the attention and caring it needs but doing a junk food detox. Even a short 3, 5 or 7-day junk food detox can dramatically change how you feel—allowing for increased energy, more stable moods, deeper sleep, and fewer cravings.
By ditching junk food, you’ll even look better with clearer skin, brighter eyes, and fewer wrinkles, along with countless other benefits. My newest book Junk Food Funk provides you everything you need to succeed with a junk food detox and take back control of your cravings and your life.
