People are gaining weight today because they eat too much chemicalised, artificial junk food and consume too much caffeine, sugar, nicotine and alcohol. It’s not the carbohydrates. Here are some great tips to help you think about your nutritional needs.
- Drink more water
- Practice cooking
- Increase whole grains
- Increase sweet vegetables
- Increase leafy green vegetables
- Experiment with protein
- Eat less meat, dairy, sugar and chemicalised, artificial junk foods; consume less coffee, alcohol and tobacco
- Develop easy and reliable habits to nurture your body
- Have healthy relationships that support you
- Find physical activity you enjoy and do it regularly
- Find work you love or a way to love the work you have
- Develop a spiritual practice, for example, yoga and meditation
As Joshua Rosenthal said “Nutrition is a funny science. It’s the only field where people can scientifically prove opposing theories and still be right.”
I say choose the things that you most want to do and leave the hardest ones for later. As you start doing the easier ones, your body’s energy will kick in and you will pick up momentum. You will then find yourself doing the hardest things with greater ease because you’re not starting from zero, know that each change you make has a tremendous impact on your present and your future.
Always ignite your power.
To your health,
P.S. A square of good quality chocolate is a perfect treat each day.
