The Paper Cut Theory

What happens when you go off your food plan? Or when you fall off your schedule? That was one of my biggest concerns when I first started changing the course of my diet and daily routine.

I was concerned about giving into tempting foods that I knew caused inflammation. I was worried if I broke my sleeping ritual that my body wouldn’t have the strength to fight back.

Then I learned about The Paper Cut Theory.

Think of a time when you flipped through the pages of a book and got a paper cut. The sting is an ever-present, annoying distraction. But usually within 48 hours you don’t even notice that it’s there anymore.

When you are healthy and you go off your plan, it is similar to a paper cut, but as long as you quickly go back to what you are supposed to be doing, it is not going to have an effect on your overall health.

Don’t beat yourself up about it, a break from your diet or routine is not a disaster. Being able to recognize a break and returning to the Clean Living process is part of developing a Forward Thinking Mind.

I will be teaching you a lot about the Paper Cut Theory and so much more at my upcoming event:
