Other “bad carbs” include toxic co-workers. You know these people, ones who never have a kind word to say about anyone, especially if they are in management, and spend more time complaining about work that actually working. These are people leaning against your office door, looking to waste time and gossip when you want to hit an important deadline. These are peers who only call you when they have a problem, and take up long lunches talking only of themselves and their woes. These are unhappy, self-absorbed, tiresome people that we always wonder why we tolerate. When was last time one of your bad carb friends asked about you and actually listened to answer?
How to Lose Dead Weight—The Integrity Diet
If you can go on a low-carb diet to lose weight, why not do same with people you surround yourself with? Go on an “integrity diet” and rid yourself of bad carbs in your life. It isn’t easy to give up pizza, pasta and doughnuts. And it isn’t easy to look a longtime “friend” in eye and say you do not want them to be a part of your life any longer. But best part is, while you might miss pizza, you will never miss a “toxic” friend.
To get you started on your Integrity Diet, try following:
Make a list of important people in your lives.
Divide them into proteins, good and bad carbs.
Make an effort to strengthen your relationship with proteins—the people who inspire you, energize you and make you happy.
Enjoy good carbs in moderation.
Minimize your time with bad carbs.
Remember to pay special attention to bad carbs. Eliminating them will not be easy or pleasant, but positive results in your emotional and professional lives will appear as fast as pounds shed when you say goodbye to white bread, French fries and cupcakes.
You can eat all protein in world, but if you keep taking in bad carbs, you won’t get results you ultimately want.
And be sure to let us know how much “dead weight” you lose in next thirty days!
