I’m slowly learning to despise Dr. Oz. I’ve read his books and watched his television program sporadically for a few years. I’ve taken Green Coffee Bean extract, 7-Keto DHEA and many other of his brilliant ideas for miracle cures. Don’t get me wrong, I totally agree that the man knows what he is talking about. That is the problem. I know I will feel better and have more energy if I drink those green blended shakes and avoid caffeine. If I cut out all of the high fructose corn syrup in my life and meditate I will surely be calmer. Why don’t I do these things?
Last week I went five days without any caffeine or high fructose corn syrup. I wanted to do a little experiment to see how those two items affect my essential tremors and anxiety issues. I did learn two very important things.
- I am much calmer without these chemicals in my body. I shake less.
- I love coffee, coke zero and tea. I do not wish to live in a caffeine free world.
I know that moderation is the key. The problem is I don’t like moderation either. I truly do wish to be healthy. I also wish to eat cheesecake. The battle is with myself. I am my own worst enemy. It is my own fault that I am overweight. It is also my fault that my tremors are as bad as they are. I could in fact make them lighter by eating better. I just keep choosing not to.
Will I one day grow up and come to my senses? Will I get diabetes or some other horrible illness before I do something about it? I don’t know. I have no idea what I am waiting for.
