I Can’t Give Up Bread! My Body Needs It!

Read time: 2-3 minutes

“I think you just have to listen to your body sometimes, don’t you? For example, all I’ve felt like eating the past 3 months is pretty much bread and pasta. I don’t know why, but I really think that your body actually knows what the right foods are for you”

This is an actual conversation that I overhead this morning whilst enjoying my morning coffee and some gratitude journaling. And all I can say is ….. sigh.

Especially because the follow on a few minutes later was this:

“It just doesn’t seem to be a good time for me to exercise at the moment. Everything is constantly aching, and I’ve had so many neck problems. It’s probably best if I just focus on walking.”

This kind of reminds me of the time I read an interview with Aussie radio jock Kyle Sandilands, in which one side of the page mentioned his 30+ daily coffee habit (not to mention the 4+ litres of Coca-Cola), and the other side mentioned the fact that he has an on-call 24/7 doctor due to the fact that he suffers debilitating and unexplained migraines.

Seriously people – has it come to this? Have we been so brainwashed by conventional wisdom that we can honestly even think about kidding ourselves that a diet based around processed grains could be ‘just what my body needs at the moment’.

Again I say sigh.

the truth about listening to your body

It’s true that your body can tell you exactly what you need to look, feel and function at your very best. Intrinsically, if you give it half a chance, your body has the ability to send very clear signals as to what is right for your individualised nutritional needs. But here’s the thing. If you’re listening to your body and it’s telling you that you ‘need’ processed foods, then it’s time to change channels. Your body needs real food. Period. Start eating food in it’s natural state 90% of the time, include proteins, good fats, and healthy carbs such as seasonal green vegies at each meal, and then step back and listen to what your body is asking for.

I guarantee it’ll be singing a different tune.

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 12 month private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:


We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

  1. Kat, regarding listening to your body.
    So many people are what is called “energetically switched” that they cannot listen to the true needs (their SELF) of the body.
    “Switching” is a biological-kinesiological phenomenon where the flow of “energy” is reversed from the ideal norm.
    As in Polarity treatment, the flow should generally be from the left side hand to the right hand and through the body. People who are “switched” flow the opposite direction.
    Unless that is reversed, these people are typically unreasonable, irrational, antisocial, unwise, critical, and very much unhealthy, etc.
    A simple, gentle slap on the back is often all that is needed to “wake” them up.
    Kinesiologically other techniques are available.
    Nutritionally, staying on a health-promoting nutritional intake pattern is the best for constsnt left-to-right (L-R) flow, and thus health
    Judging from the artificial foods (confections) people eat these days it is no wonder that most of us are switched.
    ALSO: when you meet and hug people whom you know are reasonable generally, you do not want to slap them 3 (three) times on the back, because that will throw-off their L-R flow. i.e. one time is switched, 2 times is OK again , the third time is switched again.
    Two times would be best.
    If you can approach an unreasonable etc. person, reach for their hand, hold it firmly, and slap them firmly-politely, once (1 X) on the upper arm near the shoulder, and you might find them to change.

    Dear Kat,
    You’re spot on, as usual. I can’t believe the amount of times I myself hear the same sorts of nonsense….Why on earth is it okay to eat crap?! Thanks for sharing your insights and knowledge, you’re a gem.

  3. Brenda says:

    I guess it didn’t occur to the guy that he has a carb addiction. Just because we crave something that doesn’t mean that is what our body needs. An alcoholic doesn’t need to keep drinking………he is driven by his addiction. It is so typical for people, even today, to not connect how they feel with what they eat.

    1. Kat says:

      @ Brenda, yes I think most people never even think about the idea of listening to their body!

      @ Manj – my pleasure 🙂

      @ Debora – yes, I do eat most of my meat raw. Quality meat only, thinly sliced, marinated with oil and pepper is my fave. I’m pretty sure you were being sarcastic there, but you’re bang on!

      @ Pieter – unusual approach, not one I’ve heard of before …

  4. Debora says:

    “Start eating food in it’s natural state 90% of the time, include proteins”
    You’re eating your meat raw now? After all, frying meat is just as much processing as baking bread!

    You’re dead on about the two examples. If you crave something and you’re body suffers you need to figure out what you’re doing to yourself. But I’ve never been convinced about this unprocessed thing.

  5. Brenda says:

    Kat……………I must have missed something along the way………I was not aware that you eat your meat raw? All animal protein? By saying you eat 90% in it’s natural state sounds like you are a total raw foodist, but even if you only eat your meat raw that doesn’t seem to reflect the recipes you send out? I have read some about eating “raw” and it confuses me. It sort of makes sense but then again people have not eaten “raw” most of their existence……right? I sort of wish I could get to the bottom of this in my mind……because I have David Wolf e-mails that confuse me……plus Dr. Mercola.

    1. Kat says:

      As much as I can 🙂 I don’t talk about it on the blog; it’s a bit full-on for most people!

  6. Frances says:

    The Japanese have been eating thinly sliced marinated meats for a very long time… so no surprise its good for you or that your doing it Kat!

    Interesting input on polarity/kinesiology, very powerful indeed…

  7. Nora says:

    Really Kat? You eat most of your meat raw? I can understand sashimi and steak tartare, but does chicken actually taste good raw? Anytime I look at raw chicken I just think about how good it is going to taste after I grill it. Would you say that searing or lightly cooking meat is better (nutrition-wise) than fully cooking it?

    I also have a quick question about coconut oil…do you keep it in the fridge or do you keep it in a cool cabinet after it has been opened? I read somewhere that storing it in the fridge will make it last longer, but after I put it in the fridge for about 2 days it turned really hard and I pretty much have to shave it out of the jar.

    Thanks so much for always answering questions! Have a great day!

  8. Kat Eden says:

    You’re right; I don’t like chicken raw very much, and I don’t actually eat much chicken, mainly red meat. Eggs I cook!! Yes, I’d definitely say the less you cook it the better, I always eat any cooked meat rare.

    Coconut oil, in a cupboard 🙂 it doesn’t last long in my house anyway!

    You have a great day too!

  9. Hugh says:

    It sounds like this person’s brain has an addiction to the carbs –> sugar –> dopamine in the brain. In a way, he is listening to his body, but he’s getting the wrong signals.

    Don’t get me wrong – this guy’s brain isn’t making all the decisions. The guy is copping out by making excuses for himself, for not exercising, for “needing” to eat bread and pasta. I’m glad we healthy people don’t have that luxury of making excuses about our health and fitness.

    1. Kat says:

      @ Hugh; yes I think so!
