Karly Pitman says don't neglect the various aspects of your health

In Episode 129 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore", I am honored and privileged to share Part 1 of my interview with another amazing woman in the world of livin' la vida low-carb named Karly Pitman from First Ourselves. Karly is dedicated to encouraging women specifically to take care of themselves first and foremost so that their family and community can benefit from the strength that comes from recharging regularly. This may sound unrelated to the low-carb lifestyle, but once you listen to Karly in this interview today you'll understand this may be the missing link that many have been trying to find in their health pursuits.

In this first part of my interview, Karly Pitman reveals how she is now on a personal crusade to help women prevent the mistakes of her past, including bulimia, sugar binges, self-image confusion, bouts with depression, and constantly battling those little demons dancing inside of her head--all of which were destroying her mental, physical, and spiritual health. If you struggle with any of these things, then Karly has dedicated herself to helping others overcome like she did.

Addiction to sugar is a big part of that and Karly wants to help keep you from becoming a "witch mommy" too. Because of her dedication to this issue of sugar addiction, Karly is offering a FREE COPY of her new e-book Overcoming Sugar Addiction: How to Kick Your Sugar Habit, Conquer Food Cravings, Stabilize Your Mood, and Lose Weight to the listeners of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore." If you battle with sugar and can't seem to stay away from the sweets, then you'll want to hear what Karly has to say in today's podcast and in her e-book.

THANKS Ed! I'm aware of the podcast issues today and have alerted my producer. Sorry about luck has been awful the past week or so. Blogger has my blog locked right now from new posts since their robots flagged it as a "spam" blog. It's been locked a couple of days and I've got so much to blog about. :( THANK YOU for your support!

Karly said it best when she said that we forget and celebrate by eating carbohydrates. We feel so good and the forgetting is the fact that the reason we feel so good is because we have detoxified our systems by not bombarding ourselves with carbohydrates and that's why we feel so good. So we treat ourselves by eating the destructive foods that caused us to feel bad in the first place and then feel bad again. That's how addictions work. -- Another one of the many ways our addictions work is that they lead us back and soothe us in times of sorrow and anxiety and stress.(They will actually create or amplify our sorrow and anxiety and stress so that they can get us to use again) Anything to get sugar and carbohydrate back into our bloodstream and into our minds and bodies so that we can stop those cravings and feed that dog and make us feel good again.(This, with both the cravings we realise we are having and the cravings we don't realise we are having. -- A heroin addict in a large group therapy session I sat in on one time in Los Angeles, California (about 30 men and women, all adult parolees and being required to urine test weekly. We sat in a large circle of chairs with a counselor/therapist encouraging a spontaneous discussion of our heroin addictions. Like I say I wasn't an addict, I was a Parole Agents 'Aid' and we were trying to learn and help them and our supervisors asked a few of us to sit in and try to learn from one another. -- These are pretty humorous people when they are not strung out and fighting and on a heroin run. -- Anyway this one guy joked that he can't win. -- If he's well he celebrates his wellness. -- If he's sick, he takes care of his sickness by using. -- One way or another he uses. Addictions are powerful forces. -- The only addiction harder to break than carbohydrate addiction is a heroin addiction. -- A true heroin addict will always be addicted. Carbohydrate addiction, although nagging, can be broken and we can feel great and stay that way and both the 'known' and the 'unknown' craving will dissipate and leave us entirely if we will just do our part. We do not remain addicted for life although we could always use again.
