Keto-pound-cake-recipe-4-SunCakeMomWe can’t get rid of good old desserts no matter how hard we try. It doesn’t matter if we suck them in while nursing in the lap of our mothers or grow into them during the years. These are like habits that we pick up during the years and never be able to get rid of them.

Habits are like that, unfortunately. Well, only unfortunately if we are to change them. If we are happy chomping on the good old sugar and starchy cakes then all for the better. There is no need to make our life unnecessarily difficult.

It isn’t easy to change the way we do things in our life. We can blame our brain for that. Not as we actually exist without our brain, driving a skeleton with meat armor but that’s probably for another day.

As we all may know that our brain is wired to eat up anything high in calories in a bid to supply the body and brain energy then store the excess energy in fat for days less fortunate.

This behavior roots in hundreds of thousands of years of trial and error in the wilderness called nowadays as evolution of species. This behavior helped us survive the rough years without farming, fridge and agricultural insurance.

A similarly old behavior that guides our daily life without us knowing, is responsible for racial discrimination, addiction and quitting all of the diets we have ever tried.

We don’t really do all of those things because we really want to. We do them simply because our brain wants to save power.  By not continuously thinking about all the things that are present around us, the brain saves a lot of energy.

Estimates predict that on average, we fall back to autopilot and let our habits take over our decisions anywhere between 45% to 95% of the day.

How much we rely on our habits depends on the way of life we lead but even with the most conservative estimates, it is astonishing how little control we actually have over what we do and how we do it.

Anyone who ever tried a diet and cheated, knows the feeling. We don’t really want to eat that piece of cake, let alone the whole batch but there is no control over it. Our willpower has no dominion over our evolutionary instincts.

Similarly, as we can’t really pay for our life to a caveman with bitcoin here is little chance for our primitive brain to listen to our neo-cortex pleas of leave some food for tomorrow.

Luckily though, the big part of our brain is made up with clever thoughts making parts so we are capable of solving difficult, even impossible tasks.

Not eating up a whole tray of cake seems like one such an eternal struggle even more if we have imprinted the habit into our brains. It seems like once a habit is carved into our brain, it sticks there forever waiting to be recalled in a heartbeat.

Old habits can be rewired if we are willing to dive deep into the cues that invoking them. Once we know why are we drawn to the cakes, we can alter our actions. Who knows, maybe we don’t eat the cakes because we are hungry but because we are bored and the cakes happen to be in the same room where we are looking for something to do.

Of course, sometimes life isn’t that easy that a bit of habit hacking would solve it. This is why we have created a kind of guiltless version of the well-known pound cake that can be gorged on. It is a low carb keto pound cake but as with all cakes, made of nuts not free of calories but free of carbs.

Nuts are full of essential nutrients and oils that are good for our bodies and superb accompaniments for diets that are part of some workout regime.
