If you have even the tiniest desire to change the way you eat, don’t put it off any longer. If deep inside you there’s a little voice telling you to improve the way you eat before a serious condition announces itself, listen to that voice; it very well could be the intelligent voice of reason.
Changing things for the better isn’t difficult, it doesn’t deprive, it doesn’t physically hurt; it does however introduce new foods, it offers live foods for a live body, it helps increase energy and good moods, it leads to true weight loss even if it seems slow going and along with many other benefits it imparts a new outlook.
As you probably have heard or read many times before that “you have this one body to live in”; it’s up to you love it, nurture it, respect it, and feed it healthy life giving foods.
Another common saying is “you are what you eat”, if that’s truly the case, I choose to be full of life, freshly picked, airy and light yet well grounded, unprocessed, whole and natural. I can be all those things when I choose to eat nutrient packed leafy greens and other fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables along with root veggies and whole grains that haven’t been stripped of their vitamins and nutrients.
Over processed foods such as boxed, canned, take-out and frozen foods are extremely high in sodium, preservatives, unhealthy oils, and other chemicals in order to keep them in their man made condition. Although the label might state that it’s lower in fat, sodium, preservatives, etc. it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better for you; it’s still highly processed and lacks nutrients. Through eating this way we become overweight and we lack nutrients.
It’s been said that we are an overfed, undernourished country. Through my work I believe that this statement is true. This undernourishment is a large contributor to diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, obesity and more. It’s my goal to reach out to and help as many individuals as I can to recharge their life with wholesome nutritional foods and healthy lifestyle choices.
Feeling healthy and happy is a choice. It’s a choice we all can make. There are so many ways to improve the way we eat and even the smallest change can make the biggest difference. Take your future health and happiness into your own hands; be proactive to better health, not reactive to a possible future disease.
Improving your health through nutritional and lifestyle changes is the best gift you can give for yourself. Getting guidance helps you to reach your goal and helps you understand why certain choices are better for you individually. Make an investment in yourself this year!
