If you do not take care of your body, where are you going to live?

February 25, 2015

 

People generally take better care of their cars than they do their bodies.  I’m always amazed at the grocery store when I see what people buy.  Some baskets have NOTHING that is actually food.  Nothing that is fresh or whole instead of processed or pakaged pretty.

 

I am not a nutritionist by any means, but over the years I have learned a lot about how to fuel my body for feeling and performing best.  I’m lucky to have a few friends who are experts on the topic, and I’ve read a lot of books.

 

But the best information I ever got was from actually trying new foods, cutting down on others and then listening to my body and seeing how I felt.

 

Here is what I have learned about my body:

 

>Wheat and gluten are a big no-no.  I feel the effects instantly.

 

>I like to start the day with fruit and then have protein for lunch.

 

>I’ve learned to crave fruits and vegetables and drink lots of water.

 

>I actually need and crave meat.

 

>I still have the sugar addiction but limit it to one time a day or every few days.

 

>When I eat sugar, I try to enjoyit rather than feel guilty about it.

 

> I tend to eat when I am stressed.

 

The list goes on and on.  It took some time to figure out what works best for me.  And I’m far from perfect at it.  It’s a learning experience that takes dedication to staying conscious and changing my habits.

 

Why not try this concept on and see how it fits for you?  There’s so much information out there.  Start by sifting through it to get a feel for what is the perfect approach for you.

 

 Then I invite you to become conscious, begin pre-planning and try different things to see what actually works best for you!
