The media is saturated with information on nutrition and businesses trying to make a buck selling their “big secret” to all of your hopes and dreams. They stuff us full of ingredients from around the world promising that it’s the missing clue as to why we don’t feel good or look a certain way. THEN, they tell us that if we don’t use it or continue to purchase at astronomical prices, that we will lose everything that we’ve worked for and will regress to worse than before. All this because we want the easiest, fastest way to “get there”.
Wanna know the truth?…
You already know everything that you need to know about nutrition.
Case in point:
- Eat fruits and vegetables
- Drink water
- Stay away from junk or processed food
- Watch your portions
- Eat when you’re hungry, stop when satisfied
- Ease up on the caffeine
- Not too much red meat
- Buy organic when you can
And in your heart of hearts, you also know that lasting change doesn’t come easily or overnight.
You see? We were taught everything we needed to succeed and remain healthy when we were in elementary school. Lack of knowledge has never been the problem.
Lack of practice is where we’ve sold ourselves short.
Maybe we didn’t have an example or weren’t blessed with the resources to instill good nutritional habits. Quite possibly we had those things and fell prey to the “worker bee” mentality and fell away from those healthy choices. But here’s the good news: you probably have much more control over what you fuel your body with these days.
So start today. Start right now.
You only have this moment. You don’t have to take on tomorrow or next week or next month. Just right now. Just today. Your body needs you and has been waiting for the same amount of care that you give to other things. For right now, choose you.
