You’re probably wondering what the heck I mean by that title. Well, I’m glad you asked!
We are bombarded every day with over 60,000 messages! Our brains don’t have the capacity to process all of them, so our minds decide what to keep and what to discard. If we keep hearing the same messages or similar messages every day, these thoughts will get embedded into our subconscious until we don’t think about it any more and just accept it as truth.
The question of Are you eating advertisements may sound silly, but think about the ads you see on t.v., the radio ads you hear, the magazine ads you read, even what your friends tell you. For example, if you hear often enough that a certain yogurt has beneficial bacteria that will help regulate you, you will begin to believe it. The next time you go to the supermarket, you might end up buying that yogurt because the ads, the message behind the ads, have snuck into your subconscious.
Yet, this mistake can sabotage your health. What they’re not telling you is that there are also chemicals and additives in that yogurt that do more harm than the probiotic does good.
Why do advertisers do that? Unfortunately they do this so that companies can make more money. And with all the different products out there, the manufacturers hire top agencies to make their products stand out. And it’s not just food.
US News wrote about this last year.
Another popular mistake on the food end is that we should be eating low fat. NO! Our bodies need fat, for our brains, to deliver some vitamins to our organs.
I’ve written a 14 page guide where I discuss the top mistakes we are making and what we can do about it.
On page 4 of the report I discuss how low fat and no fat is actually making you fat.
And on page 10 I discuss how artificial sweeteners and diet sodas add to weight gain and why.

Now, the good news is that you can change that! But first you have to become aware of your thoughts. You have to pay attention and ask yourself, is that true? With practice, you can master these hidden beliefs and work on changing the script. Once you do, you won’t be eating advertisements for any meal anymore.
