Living and enjoying life should be about keeping things simple and uncomplicated; this includes our health and wellness routines.
When you hear the word 'diet,' you automatically think of weight loss or an extreme change in your food intake. Our culture has become obsessed with fad diets, such as The Grapefruit Diet, The Master Cleanse Diet, The Cabbage Soup Diet, Juicing, Keto, or Intermittent fasting. There's no shortage of diet programs online, and while some may experience success, many do not see the weight loss they had hoped. That's why ditching the diet mentality such as "good" and "bad" foods is important; it's freeing yourself from restriction and choosing to eat intuitively with a well-balanced diet.
Food affects our energy levels, sleep cycle, food cravings, mood swings, sex drive, and overall general health. Our diets should contain different foods to get the wide range of nutrients that our bodies need. Minerals and vitamins are other nutrients that should be included in your diet. That is why, occasionally, we should press pause on our grocery list and see what type of food we are putting into our bodies. Is the food providing the nutrients and fuel we need to function, or is it clogging our arteries?
Eating a healthy balanced diet is an integral part of maintaining good health - but what is a good, healthy diet? It's eating lots of vegetables, fruits, protein, healthy oils, and drinking water. Increasing the amount of water you drink is a simple way to improve your diet and stay hydrated. More importantly, having a mindset shift about food and exercise is a game-changer for all aspects of health and creating a sustainable long-term lifestyle.
Is it easy? NO! But it can be done if you switch your mindset and adjust behavior patterns. The best advice is to keep it simple, like going for a daily walk, walking indoors with a YouTube walking video, or setting a goal to walk 8,000 steps 3 days a week. You don't have to go all out and throw your "bad" food away; it's simply about making small, attainable goals.
Most people know what needs to be done and how to implement change, but without support and guidance, plans will typically fail. Support groups are a great way to create accountability; being accountable provides focus and motivation; these are key to getting results.
Always remember to focus on the small things - as you get positive achievement faster. When you make small changes, over time, you will notice your progress and the significant impact it has on your day-to-day. Remember that slow and steady wins the race.
