It’s not that one ingredient or food you’re not eating son. The whole world would be thin if all you had to do was add cinnamon or red chili pepper flakes to your casserole. You got a busted link in a small chain that you’re not taking care of. I know those busllshit “just add this to the things you shove in the hole in your face” list seem appealing because the guy with big arms said he got those guns by adding ground up diamonds to his coffee but he’s pulling your chain and collecting checks while your asking Jarred “how many karats should I put in my yogurt”. It’s very simple to turn your shit around and to keep your shit going in the right direction if you give a damn and aren’t looking for quick fixes but rather a better way of living until its tombstone shopping time. A combination of working out (preferably the adding muscle kind not the sitting on a blanket taking a nap kind) eating foods that don’t require you to look up elements on the periodic table from the ingredient list to understand what the hell it is, sleeping/rest, and managing your stress is your best approach. Those 4 things need to all work together for your meat puppet suit to be in tip top working/living in condition.
Unless you’re not doing anything at all (which is just lazy), you probably have one or maybe two links to connect back together to keep your chain game tight. But if you think adding ginger to your oatmeal to get your health ship righted is going to override you putting ground overpowering taco beef into a Doritos bag while only sleeping 3 hours a night and not working out since leg warmers were popping, then you probably think it’s a good idea to put a band aid over a bullet wound.
