What does ‘eating well’ even mean?
I get it, there’s so much conflicting information! Cut calories, eat carbs, don’t eat carbs, go low-fat, eat fat, everything in moderation, only eat potatoes – WHAT! It’s all a bit confusing and frustrating. How are you supposed to “eat well” when you can’t even get a straight answer about what that is?!?!
Food is information.
Every time you eat something you’re giving your body specific instruction. Put simply, you’re either promoting health or promoting disease.
Understanding what food is and how it impacts the body is the first step in unraveling all the conflicting, nutritional information and getting on a path to true health and wellness.
Food is powerful.
Hippocrates famously said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” It took me a long time to really understand and embrace this idea. I always thought I ate well and fed my family well. It wasn’t until my children were almost adults that I realized the American dietary guidelines weren’t doing my family any favors.
All food is NOT created equal.
Family health issues finally helped me realize that all food does NOT promote health. Food sensitivities are real and their effect can be very different from person to person. Eliminating foods that cause dysfunction and dis-ease must happen if health is to be achieved.
Gas and bloating aren’t normal.
When you eat “healthy food” that your body responds to positively you enjoy a balanced appetite, zero cravings, all day energy, an even mood, and restful sleep. Gas, bloating, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea and the “hangries” become a thing of the past. You really can feel great.
Feeling helpless and a little lost.
There is nothing worse than feeling helpless. Not knowing where to find answers is scary. I know, I’ve been there. What do you do when you go to the expert and they don’t have an answer?! I was faced with this very problem. Just thinking about it brings back a feeling of emptiness. I was paralyzed, it was the first time in my life I didn’t have even a hint of a solution.
