There were times, I'm sure you knew, when I bit off more than I could chew …

I'm going to reveal a secret for regaining all the energy you require for your hectic lives.

It's so simple that at first you might be tempted to dismiss it. You'll soon understand why that would be a huge mistake.

So, before we start I want you to promise me something. Say this out loud: "I won't dismiss this as too simple to be of any use until I've tried it".

As you'll see, this week's small change, while quite simple, is something you can easily monitor for yourself. People who make this change start to notice a big improvement to their energy levels, and so will you!

First of all, consider this.

The Key to Abundant Energy

"Better than 90 percent of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing."

Attributed to Roger Sperry, PhD.

Medical Nobel Prize winner for brain research, 1981.

This applies when a person has perfect posture. When the posture is less than perfect even more than the 90% output is used for keeping you upright. We'll be talking about the importance of good posture in a later article in this series. Let's assume you have perfect posture and have 10% of the brain's output left for thinking, healing and metabolism.

Of that 10%, 80% (or 8% of the total if you prefer) is used for metabolism consisting of digestion and the body's biochemical processes.

The importance of digestion

Most people don't realise how much energy digestion actually takes. In fact we use approximately 10% of the energy we get from our food every day, just for digesting our food.

So what can we do? We can't turn off digestion but we can make the job much easier and free up lots of energy that we can use for other things with this week's change.

Here it is. Remember your promise.


Chew every mouthful 30 times before you swallow it.

On the surface you wouldn't think that this could do much, but people are finding out just how much this simple practice releases hidden energy.

Digestion begins in the mouth. If we omit that process, we only get a fraction of the nutritional value of our food. Swallowing partially chewed food puts tremendous strain on our digestion and drains us of our vitality unnecessarily.

As an added bonus you will feel full quicker on less food helping you shed those few extra pounds. You will also enjoy your food more as the pleasure you get from eating only happens while the food is in your mouth.

Many times, simply correcting our chewing habits can open the energy floodgates by freeing up energy that was already there.

Remember what Horace Fletcher said, "Nature will castigate those who don't masticate".

Suck it and see!
