A part of being Luciferian is to rise to your full potential. This applies to body, mind and spirit. The mind and spirit is nourished by the immaterial, your body needs solid and liquid fuel to survive. Learning about the  body, its properties and limitations, will put the Luciferian in a position to perfectly control how the body draws energy and life-supporting substances from food.

Chances are, you are addicted to some types of food, and cannot control what you eat. Most processed food contain little fibre and too much sugar and fat, which cause health problems, and affect the psyche to become more stressed, resulting in depression. In the western world, this problem has been for decades. Even in Asia, where people have survived on rice and vegetables, with meat only as a seasoning or side-dish, McDonalds and KFC have invaded, causing obesity, cancer and health problems for millions of modern Chinese.

Notice how you never seem to want asparges or brown beans as much as pizza or gouda cheese. There is a reason for that. And it’s addictive.

Chocolate chip cookies, ‘energy bars’, french fries, all promise a satisfying meal, but they are loaded with sugar and fat that feed into opiate receptors in your brain, releasing serotonin and causing your body to feel satisfied. It’s actually a trick, because your blood sugar will rise quickly and come crashing down. Your body’s reward system is out-dated, it’s designed for hunter-gatherers where any food you came across was good for you, since you got your fiber and proteine and minimum fat plus you didn’t sit in an office all day but actually used all the muscles in your body.

All the fat and sugar in todays food, all the fat blocks insulin from working properly, the sugar can’t go to your cells, so your body overproduce insulin, sending you to the big crash when suddenly you overdose on insulin and there is no sugar left. This is how you eventually get diabetes, and during your ‘sugar high’ opiate receptors are activated, and modern food makers make you dependant on their food, by design. Yes, most things that are taken for granted, such as a hamburger and french fries, are designed to keep you hooked, it’s like a drug.

If you are skipping breakfast, rushing out the door, but find yourself craving for snacks even before lunch, going through the day with little energy, and when you come home, you’re exhausted or even can’t stop eating, then you have a serious problem that is affecting millions of people in the ‘modern lifestyle’.

To stop it, you need to think about having breakfast, and what you have for breakfast. Forget egg and bacon. Neither contain enough fibres or the kind of sugar you want. Because you want fibre to fill you up – and you want the kind of food that release sugar carefully into your bloodstream so as not to upset your balance, keep production of insulin stable, while at the same burning enough fuel to keep your mind and body working 100% effective.

You should eat high-fibre, and low GI (glycemic index) food like Oatmeal, Kidney beans, or rice. Don’t worry about the technical aspects of GI for now. One slice of white bread is around 100 GI wich is used as a reference. Fibre is only found in plant and plant derivatives. Meat and egg and dairy products have no fibre.

Breakfast is your most important meal, just like a golfer hits the first strike, which will define the rest of the day. You should be filled up, with food that release sugar slowly. Then, your lunch should be of rye or pumpernickel bread, with vegetables. Avoid meat, cheese, butter, and processed food, especially sugar. This will release sugar slowly, thus replenishing the fuel storage since breakfast. Dinner should also be composed of ingredients that are healthy to you, I will include another post of recipies in follow up to this article, but the main idea is to control your energy input so that sugar is released slowly into the body, then increase fibre and nutrients from plant, fruit and vegetables, and decrease or quit animal fat, meat, dairy and salt.

Sounds simple? Heard it before? It’s not simple, because you are likely addicted to sugar, salt and fat. Most people cannot last a single week without meat. Diets often fail because starving the body actually puts the body in starvation mode, which means that the hormone which controls your hunger is not switched off, and your body stores fat, instead of burning it, and even if you manage to torture yourself through weeks of starvation, you’ll fly right up in weight, since your body was in emergency panic mode, and it stored fat like hamster once something arrived, anticipating another starvation.

Skipping meals and trying to diet also cause binges. When evening comes, you cannot resist your bodys strong instincts and will end up snacking through the night. Recognise it?

The solution is to realise how your body works through seeing how big impact your breakfast has on your everyday performance, using the knowledge found in this post, that you can control your sugar balance, thus keeping your cravings under control. The next step is to control your other meals so you can limit the kind of things your body doesn’t need, while increasing the things your body does need, thus escaping from the industrially-designed traps of food cravings that upset your balance, emotions, energy and health.

You need a minimum of 2000 calories a day if you weigh 90 kg / 198 pounds. If you don’t eat this amount, your body thinks you are starving, and will begin to store fat. You must ‘trick’ your body into thinking you are having enough food, while reducing the excess. Note that binges can result in 5000 – 15000 calories, right before sleep, so even modest changes in the way you use food to your advantage like this can have a huge impact, if you can break your habits.

So you should not count calories, instead focus on eating healtier and eating stuff that keeps you going over a long time instead of sugar-fat-filled snacks and pastry.

Figure 1. Notice the High and Low graphs. In the High graph, you get a sugar rush, overproduction of insuline, and crash which results in craving more snacks and fast food, causing depressions and fatigue. While the Low graph, you see variation between 100-120, but never goes below the 100 mark, ensuring constant, even flow of energy and no depression or fatigue.

Figure 2.  Table of food with GI index. Notice that your breakfast should be as low GI as possible. White bread is a reference.

Figuer 3. Fibre distribution chart. For your breakfast you should get as much fibre as possible, filling you up, satisfying hunger, and putting vegetable proteins, veggie fat and veggie sugars that release sugar slowly, thus being a more durable fuel source packed with vitamins.

I have used these considerations and found the following results.

Before controlling breakfast:

– I used to go wake up late and tired, rush to work without eating any breakfast, resulting in craving for chocolate snacks before lunch.

– I used to eat white bread with cheese and ham, but was starving again by 2’o clock.

– I used to arrive home tired, depressed and no energy, especially hard to focus during the day.

– I got more cravings during the night, sometimes disturbing sleep.

After noticing some weight gain and problems sleeping, depressions and no energy during the day, I decided to find the solution.

After controlling breakfast:

– I wake up with the sun, totally relaxed, spend 30 minutes preparing a veggie based combination of Oatmeal and fruits

– Go to work with lots of energy from the morning, enjoy lunch with coarse bread with only salad/vegetables and pure orange juice

– Arrive home with energy to run 30 minutes, enjoy vegan dinner

– Able to sleep instantly and wake up relaxed.

– Stopped liking Coca Cola, or snack bars.

In defence of Food – an eater’s manifesto : Qoute:

About milk: I’ll bet most of you voted for reduced or non-fat. But if you’ll turn to page 153 of “In Defense of Food,” you’ll read that processors don’t make low-fat dairy products just by removing the fat. To restore the texture — to make the drink “milky” — they must add stuff, usually powdered milk. Did you know powdered milk contains oxidized cholesterol, said to be worse for your arteries than plain old cholesterol? And that removing the fat makes it harder for your body to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins that make milk a valuable food in the first place?
