One thing I've learned over the years is that HEALTHY EATING looks different to most everyone. It truly is in the eye of the beholder. One might say healthy eating is about eating a Whole30 diet, another a Paleo diet, someone in the same family in the same home will say "No, it's about cutting out carbs. It's about the Keto diet." Am I wrong?
But eating healthy is more than the current "fad" diet, it's about ridding our bodies of the foods that cause disease (for good) and replacing it with whole, fresh, nutrient dense foods that help fight disease and can even reverse the underlying cause of most disease, that being inflammation. The problem is, we want an easy fix. Something quick, not so painful, that will help us (quickly and painlessly) drop the weight and "look better" without really getting down to the nitty-gritty and doing what it takes to get healthy(er).
Will it take effort? YES! Will it be painful? Maybe, especially in the transition, the beginning stages. But what have you done in life (worthwhile) that has ever been easy, without effort, without a little pain involved? Trust me, there is nothing I haven't done worthwhile, that hasn't involved stretching, pushing beyond the comfort zone and deciding "If I want something I've never had, I need to do something different" (aka, I've never done). It may take a little longer than normal, but believe me, you will see the payoff! IF you stick with it!
Wouldn't you rather be in charge of your health than living on medication just so you can get by, still not feeling well just so you can eat what you want, when and how you want? This makes no sense. I've never seen so much of this than I have since I moved back down South where people would rather take a pill and continue to eat poorly than to change their eating habits to rid themselves of the toxicity to get to the underlying problem.
If you haven't read my personal story on my journey to health from a cancer scare and how changing my diet improved my health please go HERE and take a moment to do so. You will find out I'm not just vomiting words here. I'm sharing my story to help YOU get healthy because I know it is attainable. It can be done if you're willing to do the work.
