I’m sure we have all heard of the saying you’re what you eat right ?
We must not forget this because it’s so true & it’s vital that we all get this right for a better quality of life.
That’s mind, body & soul… If I just said weight loss, that would be short-changing you.
You see everything you consume effects those three sources.
Food changes your mood, so would it not be wise to eat food that makes the mind positive long term, and is known to make you happier in the long term, vs short term trash that is negative and gives you a sugar high and then drowns you in under an hour?
Over time eating trash that is no good for your makes you less happy, which then makes you want to do less in life which makes you move less which gains pounds no ?
Can have you so down and depressed, that it makes you want to eat more than you need no ? Which leads to weight gain no ? (The reverse of not eating can happen obs too).
When the mind & body is down and out this hurts your soul and even those with the strongest of faith fall, because the weight of the mind and body is too much for it to handle daily.
However once you get the food that you eat fresh over and over again, that’s your mind focused & your body healthy… So what are the chances your soul is going to be messed up?
It can happen, but I’d rather have 2 out of 3 then 1 out of 3 you feel me?
As the French lawyer Anthelme Brillat-savarin once said Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es (Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are)…
If you half-arse your health we can tell and no excuses you can find will cover it up, at least don’t lie to yourself!
If you don’t want it that’s on you, I’d rather be honest with me then to b.s myself and waste my own time on something I don’t really want.
Now let’s focus on those of you that do want this and are eating healthier than before.
I will say this you need to know what it is you’re eating and drinking daily, It’s an issue if you cannot tell me what you had last week Tuesday for dinner in my eyes why?
Because you should be aware just like spending you have a bank account to see everything you purchased or given away, it should be the same for what you eat and drink…
If you don’t know how much water you have drank over the course of the day, but your goal is to lose weight you’re then just hoping that you do rather than knowing that if I drink X amount of water in the many months to come I will lose Y amount.
Those of you that are feeling like you want to quit too I can assure you do not track anything, because your mind scoreboards suck!
What do we always say about writing down how you feel?
It always good to take it from your mind to the page, it makes you feel better right?
So why would you not do that for what you eat and drink, it keeps you on top of things so when your mind tells you rubbish you can put it in check for the over thinkers too.
To have a rough idea is not wise, and you should push to do more/ask for help if need be, to have a good idea is going to start you off in the right direction, to be crystal will give you confidence that even through slip ups or
unexpected things’ life throws at you, that you’ve got this because the facts of your labour is down for you to read or see if you rather take pictures.
I can say this with my chest out and my head up because I can tell you what I ate 24 hours ago, last week, last month, last year & 8 years ago on this exact day because it’s all in stone… Easy work!
It’s one less thing for me to concern myself with, I’m not saying you have to write it down every day for years and years like me, what I am saying is you need to have some idea and for it to be put down.
To be honest with you, you could take it like this… You’ll be willing to write up letters & spreadsheets for your boss day in and day out, write up texts for your friends & write a whole story about how someone did you wrong on social daily but not your health that is for yourself ?
I hope you can see what I’m saying here as we can do something about this, and for everyone who is making some form of notes and is saying they want to be healthy and doing what needs to be done take a bow!
It’s never too late to take care of you if you are reading this, make the notes that are really important for your own health and get out of the dark & what others are doing..
As I’ll tell you one thing, you will be ahead of the game if you take this habit up and your results will last you a lot longer than these fly-by-night wins that turn to L’s because they have no foundation.
Di Nutrition is the fountain of health & my water is the ever flowing elixir of life… All organic no Nicholas Flamel!
I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Please do let me know though…
